A family of travellers

written by Birgit

I guess that before talking about anything else, the question on the why, where and when needs to be answered...

So where did it all start? The idea of doing a long term trip or round the world trip probably started well over ten years ago. Both of us (that is Birgit and Sam) probably dreamed of doing such a long trip already before we even met. And these ideas definitively got much more pronounced since we're together. At some stage when we still lived in Romania, there was the idea of going to Mongolia on motorbikes and Birgit even took driving lessons to get a motorbike license. Well, but plans change: before realizing the trip (and even getting the license finished) it was clear that before too long it would not be just the two of us, but three.

When Max joined us as our third member in the family, our travel plans did not come to an abrupt halt. Rather the opposite: By the time Max was 6 months old, he had been to Germany (well, that's where he's born), Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden and Denmark. And by the time he was 2 years old, he had already been to Romania, Switzerland, Liechenstein, Namibia, South Africa and Ireland. South America followed the year after with Chile and Argentina, and some smaller trips to Portugal or Spain. In other words: Max has traveled by now quite a bit and we know that he likes traveling and even more so: we love traveling with him as our companion (and world class door opener to the locals).
