5,000 hits!

To celebrate, here's a little ditty called "Feest" from K3 (pronounced Kaaaaaahhhhh-Dreeeeeeee!!!!) which stands for

Karen (the red-head, the flirtatious one, my favorite w/her husky voice)
Kristel (the dark-haired one--she's a mom!--ever the levelheaded one)
en (that's "and" in Nederlands)
Kathleen (the Baby Spice of K3, cute, blonde, perky, slightly spastic)

Yeah, yeah, the song is not too far off from Martha & the Vandellas' "Dancing in the Streets" with its list of places in the world, but hey, it's appropriate for the Family Travel Journal.


And for those of you who want to learn a little Nederlands, here are the lyrics:

Feest Lyrics by K3
Is feest in New York en in St. Tropez
Barcelona en LA
Acapulco, Santa Fe
Iedereen doet mee,
't Is feest in New York en in Tokio
Kaapstad en in Mexico
Rio de Janeiro
Overal op aarde is het feest
Eskimootjes rollen in de sneeuw (Ole!)
Afrikaantjes vechten met een leeuw (Ole!)
Indianen dansen rond een totempaal
En wij gaan straks naar Spanje allemaal (Ole!)
Brazilianen zingen van La Bamba (Ole!)
Mexicanen houden dan de Samba (Ole!)
Weet je wat, we komen pas op het journaal
Als we samen feesten allemaal

chorus etc.

Let's hear it for 5,000 hits!

Hey - the Family Travel Journal, started initially out of curiosity and a sense of "hey, I want to keep records of travel anyway, so..." is about to go to 5,000 hits! Gotta love the internet. Once we hit that magic number, I'll write a spoof essay to celebrate, so send those links, folks!

Happy Holidays,
