Hi Inga,

Love your blog. Having also traveled extensively with our 5 elves, then the key is to think small. We have also allowed the kids to only have a small backpack (school bag) of clothes and then been good at buying quick-dry clothes. This has worked for us both while doing our 6-week camping trip around the US as well as our trips to Africa and China with them.

I however have to admit that this is getting harder as they are now all teenagers and especially the girls need to have lots of beauty products, hair-irons, etc. etc. etc.

The best thing about traveling with 5 kids - you can in many places qualify for a group discount :-)

Thanks Gísli!
I think we have a lot in common, after all there aren´t THAT many families who travel w. 5 kids. You however have the lead on exotic places ;-)
Would love to take our kids on a camping trip in the US. Coast to Coast has been a dream for many years.

We each bring a snack bag of our favorite junk foods on long trips. We dont really eat junk food often so when we are traveling we break all the rules.

I think that it is amazing that you and Chris were able to grtadaue debt free! I wish I would have tried harder to do that or at least lessen my debt. I'm the youngest of six as well, so my parents didn't have a lot to give me for tuition. So I figured it out on my own as well and got student loans and scholarships. My loans are pretty much paid off, but that also taught me to truly appreciate my education, because I still had to pay for it myself. It's tough because education is so important to both Denver and myself, so I don't want anything to deter my kids from going to college. But I've seen a lot of young people who don't appreciate their education because they don't have to pay for it. Missions are another thing like that. One thing that my in-laws did for Denver that I thought was great was told him he had to save up for his mission. So he worked hard and saved everything to pay for his mission. While Denver was on his mission, unbeknownst to him, his parents took the money and invested it and paid for the mission themselves. When he got home he had all the money he'd saved and then some to get him started in school. (Some of the money went to buying my engagement ring, so I appreciate it!! ) I think this was a good idea because he had to work for the money and he thought he was paying for his mission, but his parents still really helped him out. He really acknowledges that that was an important lesson to learn.Our kids have piggy banks that they save a little money that they earn and get here and there. We let them spend it on the dollar store or save it for whatever they want. For some special things, we've matched what they've saved. It's nothing brilliant that we're doing, but it has helped them learn to appreciate the benefits of saving. (Okay, this is a long comment )

beats by dre

Binaural beats or tones, happen to Cheap Beats By Dre be part of an interesting technology today that includes trying to affect the mind by listening to various frequencies of sound waves. However, you may wonder if a binaural beats entrainment CD can really work as claimed or are all those reports and testimonies behind them only hype in the online market? Although many people think that these are a new phenomenon, they actually have been studied for almost 200 years. In fact, they have been used in various places in the world through the years to help develop new talent, for meditation, relaxation, and to induce different states of consciousness.

The 5 Little Elves

  • 5-little-elves
    This is my husband, I and our 5 little elves. We live under the North Pole, in beautiful Iceland, but love nothing more than travelling with our 5 kids.

    We believe that nothing counteracts ignorance and prejudices as being exposed to different cultures, different ways of living and different ways of thinking. We're also the lucky winners of "The Greatest Holiday in the World" - 365 hotel nights at Radisson Blu hotels anywhere in the world.
