What I just learned from kids and the French

This summer my family teamed up with some good friends to go hiking in the Pyrenees.  We were 4 adults and 5 kids. These mountains are high, steep, hot and extraordinary beautiful. During these weeks two things became very clear to me:

Children can be incredibly strong and mentally tough. Much more so than I imagined. As long as things are kept fun and without pressure to perform they seem to quite happily tag along. Even so when "along" is a kilometer high slope. Also, the French keep their natural surroundings absolutely litter free. They seem to practice the "leave no trace behind" philosophy with great dedication. Gotta love it!
