In what ways is your home town unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

There are just over 2,000 people in my little village. It's seriously small. It's a great place for kids, everyone knows each other and it's safe. There are lots of small towns like ours in Europe, but I would not live anywhere else.

What do your kids love most about living in the European Union?

Right now my son has no clue about where lives, he is so small. As his parents we loved that he has a European Passport, which opens up work boarders for him in the future That, and travelling between countries is much easier than in the Americas or Australia.

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

We love to go to the park down the road, it over looks the Adriatic sea and the Velibit mountains. In the warmer months we loved to go for a swim at the local beach, and take a walk back through the old little houses in the village.

What do you do with all your digital photos? Please share your best tip for rediscovering memories and de-cluttering your hard drive.
