A short recap of 2016

Another year is coming to an end. Many things have happened throughout the year. The person in our family that travelled most in 2016 is... Artur. Yes, that's true.

First, winter holidays. He spent two weeks skiing in Italy with his grandparents. We stayed home, working.

Second, summer holidays. He spent first two weeks in Zakynthos with his grandparents (with my parents this time). A lot of swimming, sunbathing, doing nothing yet experiencing a lot. We stayed home yet again, working.

Third, summer holidays again. He spent three weeks on the road with us. Practically each day in a different place, many places visited, many places seen. Apart from driving through Germany (and spending there one night on the way back home), we visited France, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra.

Fourth, somewhere in June he went on a school trip somewhere in Kashubia, Poland. Don't judge me here, but I can't even remember where to. He had a great time. And that's what matters. Do I even have to mention that we stayed home, working?

Fifth, he went to Malbork, Poland. Twice within two weeks, if I remember correctly. We planned a trip there to see the castle for a given date. In the meantime, he went there with his classmates.

On top of that, he spent a week during summer holidays learning to sail in our hometown. 

Quite a year for the little guy.

Paulinka started her adventure in the kindergarden, which results with her being sick every other week (almost). But we hope this phase will pass soon.

We have hardly anything planned for 2017. Apart from the fact that in less than two and a half months we will be going to London for a prolonged weekend. We - meaning me and my husband. No kids this time. A quick weekend getaway. We still have no plans for the summer though. We'll most likely do a roadtrip again. But nothing's certain yet. Not even the direction. Not to mention any dates. Or anything else, for that matter.

The kids are going to Greece with my parents in the summer. This time, both of them. Guess what? Yes, we will be staying home, working. 

For now, we're planning to spend New Year's Eve together with our kids at home. We watched Inside Out on Christmas (Paulinka loved little Riley dancing on the armchair, butt naked. Btw she used to do exactly the same thing not that long ago ;)). Maybe we'll watch Frozen on New Year's Eve. Or maybe something else. All we know is that we're going to spend the evening together.

Happy New Year to all of you! May it be a year full of travel adventures, near and far.
