I am saddened to see so many bloggers and sites quote facts they have not checked,

We love discovering new places. And we love taking our children everywhere we possibly can (like The Louvre a few weeks ago).
Wherever we go, however we travel, there are few things we always take with us. We travel light. We are not ones for packing toilet paper on a trans-Atlantic flight or children's favourite toys (beyond the one item).
