For some families, traveling with kids around the globe for 12 months sounds like a serious nightmare, to others including us, it sounded like

La Reunion offers one of the most spectacular mountain experiences of this trip. After driving for about an hour on the very lonely and curvy road into the valleys, we reach Cilaos, surrounded by stunning mountains. It is a great spot for hikes and canyoning.
