The Best European Destinations for the Family!

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- Now the festive period is well and truly over, the prospect of being stuck in this miserable British weather can seem a little depressing. It doesn't have to be this way however, why don't you give yourself something to look forward to! The school holidays come round quicker than you think, so the sooner you start thinking of potential getaways, the better and the best part is, they don't have to cost a fortune! Europe offers so many cultural delights that you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing your first trip of the year. So grab your multi trip travel cover for the whole family, as we choose our top European destinations for 2013.

Majorca

It's no wonder Majorca is considered as a classic family holiday; it provides all the elements you need for a perfect trip abroad and so much more! Its cultural vibrancy alone is enough to keep the kids entertained, but if you're searching for something specifically child-orientated to occupy the little ones, then you won't be disappointed! Aside from sun soaked beaches and swimming pools galore, Majorca also has a fantastic history for you all to explore, especially the Palma Cathedral, which is a favourite for many. If that's not your thing, then there are several water parks for you to enjoy. Sound appealing? Then don't miss out! Get your passport, holiday travel insurance and suitcase at the ready, and treat your family in 2013.

Paris

Although some may believe the French capital to be a romantic retreat, Paris is also ideal for a family getaway. No matter what age your children are, there's something for everyone. If you have young children, then Disneyland Paris is the obvious choice. Here they can meet all their favourite characters, from Mickey Mouse to Cinderella, and embrace the true magic of Disney; what could be better? However if your family would prefer to explore the city itself, then there an abundance of tourist spots for you to visit. From the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, to the Sacre Coeur and Notre Dame, we guarantee there'll never be a dull moment.

Bulgaria

A less conventional family destination, Bulgaria is also a popular choice for 2013. Attracting many travellers for its low costs yet high quality experiences, this country is perfect for those with a taste for adventure. One landmark in particular that has caught the eye of many is the tour of the Rhodope Mountains, an awe-inspiring sight which never fails to impress. Another string to Bulgaria's bow has to be its skiing resorts, which each year allows families to take to the snow for relatively cheap prices.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data?
