Bärti muss mit!

Janina Breitling

Before her five-year-old son starts school, single mother Janina Breitling wants to enjoy the remaining time with him thoroughly. Max is immediately enthusiastic about her idea of going on a trip around the world together, but on one condition: his teddy bear Bärti has to come along! With a backpack and a small budget, they set off and find themselves welcomed with open arms. For two years they explore fascinating countries like Indonesia, Australia, Mongolia, Mexico and Israel. They make friends with wonderful people, get to know exciting cultures and dreamlike places - and are the best proof: Traveling with children is supposed to be too complicated, too expensive, too dangerous? No way!
