My wife and me are living in an lonely, old mill near Cologne. We have a 7yr old son who likes to travel with me. In 2012 we two men went to NZ together for three months, before he had to go to school. Now us two do shorter trips, in 2013 we went to New York and Niagara Falls for two weeks.
I like b&b because of the familiarity and personal contact. I am curious how other people are living, and what I can bring home from their culture. And travelling with a small son is much more easy in a private home compared to an anonymous hotel.
