    Wow – impressive! By contrast, we had: Countries: 6 (surely our all-time low??) Days Traveling: +/- 50 Flights: 0 Cars rented: 0 Taxis hailed: 0 Number of Hotel stays: 0 (yes, zero. We camp, use hostels and home exchanges) Nights spent in the Air: 0 ;o) But numbers aren’t important – experiences are, and you look like you had some unforgettable ones. Bravo!

    Happy New Year to our fellow – but very different! – Luxembourgish family travel bloggers! I look forward to reading about your adventures in 2017.

      Hello Jonny and thank you for your wishes! All the best for you and your family too! I don’t think we are that different. We are two luxembourgish families looking for fun adventures and to explore new places together with their kids. The way we both achieve this isn’t important! The result is what’s important! I love the way you write about your adventures! You are a great story teller 🙂

      Can’t wait to read about where 2017 is taking you 🙂
