(former “finding Malokoko”)

A Slovenian– German– French family of 3 who love the beach, nature hikes, camping, skiing, a tasty bite to eat and glass of good wine. Bustling street life in big cities is a must here and there as well. We avoid animal & theme parks and do our best to travel responsibly. With no 9-5 jobs at the moment, we are on a long-term road trip around Europe with our 18-year-old Land Rover Defender which we converted into a cozy home on wheels. Currently winter road tripping around Europe.

Travelling with kids - Expensive, dangerous, impossible?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with not travelling with your kids. People are different. And that´s a good thing. But if you loved to travel before you had kids, there is no reason to give it all up now. You can always find an excuse not to go, but trust me, it can all be done. It can be done as a single mom too. And I´m by far not the only one doing it. Is it expensive? Sure, you are not paying just for yourselves anymore. Dangerous? Statistically, the most accidents happen at home. Impossible? Nope.
