Welcome to the February/March edition of Urban Family Shanghai.
Many families living in Shanghai embrace the opportunities throughout the year to come together and explore the world. With this in mind, our Cover Story (p16) focuses on traveling with purpose – how having consideration for local communities, sustainability and conservation can nurture our souls and broaden our horizons.
In Life and Wellbeing (p6) we meet Harriet Gaywood, a woman who epitomizes the notion of making every moment count. This energetic mom of two competes in ultra-marathons and volunteers for various causes, all the while managing a demanding career. We also introduce six people who can bring a new dimension to your next party – from tablescaping and trivia to catering and cocktails, we've got you covered.
With Food and Fun (p24) we say "Skip the kid's menu" as we go around town to restaurants serving up sharing plates for the entire family to indulge.
These will expand any child's palate and have you enjoying casual yet delicious dining for a weekend brunch. Entertainment (p30) delivers book reviews and a new theater production, along with six documentaries for kids who love animals and nature. They are all family-friendly and will educate kids while nurturing their curiosity for the diverse animal kingdom.
As I finish up, I leave you with a simple, yet favorite quote of mine that aptly supports our cover story: "In a world where you can be anything, be kind." See you again in April!
