“Mauritius was made first, and then heaven; and heaven was copied after Mauritius” wrote Mark Twain.

Kitesurfing heaven and a family vacation paradise.
Our family has traveled quite a few kilometers by car. Long distance driving can be exhausting, but you can make it more pleasant by preparing for it beforehand. The most important thing is to enjoy the road trip without rushing.
The eternal dilemma still persists even after years of living in two different parts of Europe, travelling to the end of the world and back, and several solo travels with child. What to pack for a plane trip to keep the little one happy and mum stress-free?
