Kuala Lumpur and a hidden gem

KL, like the locals are calling it, is Malaysia’s capital city. Everyone who is travelling through the country will certainly make a stop here at some point. The Twin Towers and Batu Caves are two of the most visited attractions that you must take a selfie next to if you want to follow the tourist…

How we feel after 6.5 months of traveling

We have now been on the road for just over 6 months so we thought it was about time to sit down and summarize what we have done, where we are and what we are thinking about for the future. We left England on the 20th November 2016 for New Zealand, where we spent almost…

Melaka (Malacca) – Malaysia

Booked a bus on the wrong day and had to pay double for another bus to be able to go keep traveling as planned. Our wallet wasn’t happy but we made it across the border and were given a Visa for 90 days in Malaysia. Arrived in Melaka, a city on the west coast a…

Singapore – Welcome to the future

The republic of Singapore, a small country or one big city if you so prefer.  Proudly independent since breaking away from Malaysia in 1965. Today, 5.5 million people live here and it has become one of the world’s most powerful and forward thinking cities, and believe it or not their first spoken language is now…

Two weeks in Bali – a personal summary

We Landed at Denpasar airport and made our way through to the arrivals exit where Frida’s mum, Maria, was jumping and waving with excitement (completely expected, having not seen her for 6 months). After a few hugs and a quick introduction to Ameer (our guide and coordinator for the villa that we were to stay…

Goodbye Vietnam

(For english version, please use Google Translate) Ytterligare två månader har nu passerat (totalt 5,5 månad på resande fot) och vi är redo att säga hejdå till Vietnam. Vi anlände en grå och dimmig förmiddag (normalt väder i norra Vietnam) till Hanois flygplats där vi direkt blev prövade av de attackerande taxichaufförer som ville köra oss…

Traffic in Vietnam

Crazy, impractical, senseless, chaotic – just a few words to describe the traffic in Vietnam. To us, when it comes to driving in Vietnam, it feels as though we could give many more examples of what they do “wrong” than what they do “correctly”. There don’t seem to be any genuine rules and restrictions on…

A week in the middle of the country

After Ho Chi Minh City we took a domestic flight up to the centre of the country and spent a week in the towns of Da Nang, Hoi An and Hue… Da Nang Da Nang is Vietnams third largest city but feels much smaller and quieter than both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. We…

Mekong Delta River

While waiting for the air-conditioning to kick in and cool down the hot and humid hotel room we had at the time, we started to look for trips away from the intense heat in Ho Chi Minh City. We found a tour called Mekong Delta River Tour which was highly recommended on TripAdvisor and it…

The Arty Fishing Village

A local guy gave us a tip one day to visit an “old fishing village with art on the walls”. We thought why not and rented a bike and took off after having researched the place a little bit more. There wasn’t much information at all about the place but what we did fnd was…
