The Dutch Way

If you visit The Netherlands, the first thing you will notice is the huge amount of bikes on the street. In fact, there are 18 million bikes in The Netherlands. With a population of approximately 16.5 million this is more than one per head of the population!! Our family definitely contributes to that average, as we own 4 bikes. Two are for the daily life, one is for our visitors and the other one is for going on a bike trip. 

An ode to the cosmopolitan by a second time mum

When baby #2 was on her way I decided that it was a good excuse to get another buggy. This time round I wanted something that was a little more special. Having pushed a buggy before I knew what I wanted in terms of functionality. It had to pop over kerbs easily, manoeuvre with one hand, be simple and quick to fold and be tough enough to handle a trip to the park but also suitable for a trip to the mall. Baby #1 (well not a baby anymore) was past the buggy stage so the ability to take more than one wasn't on the list. Although being able to attach a scooter for him to ride along when his legs got tired was. 

4 flights and 3 countries in 6 days

Earlier this year we flew to Scandinavia, four flights and three different countries in just six days. You might think that we are crazy, but the original plan was for four flights and three countries in just four days. Here, I have to add that this trip was a prize that I won in a photography competition of SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) and as we thought that flying every day to a different place would be very tiring for our little one, we added two extra nights.
