Many Europeans spend the winter at this campground in Nice that has good wifi, a year round indoor pool, yummy fresh-baked croissants and French baguettes every morning and close to everything on the Cote d' Azur. One of the other families we met there was from Denmark who had been doing extended travel for months and they were on their way home. Other kids would come and go, many on weekends as it was October and school was in session for most. Luckily, we homeschool while we travel.
We also met and spent quite a bit of time with this family from Australia doing a slow tour around Europe and had been traveling for many months. They had a girl just Mozart's age and they all had a ball together as had a lot in common. In the top picture all of them are enjoying a movie together outside one night next to our motorhome via Mozart's DVD player. We have lots of DVD's so this is a common treat on the road with friends & family that we all enjoy. The other photos are just free play time together near our campsite or in our European motorhome.
Mozart of course, particularly liked the girl that was about her same age. Sometimes they would also play with the younger girl from Denmark even though she did not speak English or with her older brother and sister. Yes, we dressed up and went to tour sites like Monaco and even ran into this family by accident once while touring, but the free play around the campsite and in our motorhome, movies outside at night, swimming, biking, exploring together, making things out of nothing, talking and playing with others from different lands, just being free kids is an important and valuable part of long term travel with kids!
