How to travel during lockdown?
Today is Wednesday and it's the children's day! So we thought of them for our confined trip. And also a little bit to you: it will give you ideas of occupation for this weekend which looks rainy, at least for us. I'm also sure that there are also big kids among you, like us, fans of cartoons.
So for our stopover of the day, let's go to the couch for a responsible trip behind our TV screen!
