Buenos Aires

Standing somewhere in Montevideo (Uruguay), Buenos Aires (Argentina) is only on the other side of the worlds widest river Rio De La Plata. It only takes one hour over to the other side on the ferry but if you don’t want to spend too much of your remaining travel money on ‘luxury’, you get the…

Montevideo

We didn’t know much about Montevideo when we arrived, more than that it would be quite a modern city (Uruguay is said to be the most progressive country in South America) so we joined a free walking tour. We got a lot of information, mainly because guides quite often love talking so much on these…

One month in Brazil (Part 1: Sao Paulo & Rio de Janerio)

Last night we crossed the border into Paraguay! Fun for us. But we haven’t written one blog post about the past four weeks we spent in Brazil. We apologize for hiding all the fun from you for so long so this two-part post, will fill you in on everything we got up to in four…

Quito – Ecuador

We apologize for the lack of updates recently, we have been busy travelling. We will try to keep you all more up to date in the future. Since our last blog post we haven’t actually moved so far in terms of distance but we have still been up to quite a bit. About 2 weeks…

Traveling down South

(För svensk text, scrolla ner under bilderna.) We have known for some time now that we will be doing volunteer work in Ecuador starting November 23, so we have slowly been moving down the country, making our way towards there since we hiked the lost city trek six weeks ago. After having had a great…

Salento and Cocora Valley

Next stop for us was Salento. A small, quiet town in the Zona Cafetera (The coffee region) of Colombia. Although very small and can be fully explored in a couple of hours it still manages to be one of our favourite places in Colombia so far. There are lots of hostels, cosy bars, restaurants and colourful gift shops…

Six days in Medellín (Including video)

(För svenskt text, scrolla längre ner under bilderna och videon). Just like many of you may have done, we have also seen Netflix’s series Narcos and followed its main character, Pablo Escobar. In the series we can see, among other things, how ‘he’ (saying his name in Medellín today is quite frowned upon) takes control…

Cartagena and the bedbugs

(För svensk text, scrolla ner under bilderna.) Next stop in Colombia was Cartagena. Probably one of the most visited places in Colombia by tourists. This former Spanish colonial town sits on the Northern coast looking out over the Caribbean Sea and is popular among both backpackers and all-inclusive honeymooners. Our journey there started with a…

Mandalay and U-Bein Bridge

Mandalay was our second stop on our way through Myanmar. Again, we had to take a night bus. 10 hours on a bus may sound like a nightmare but really isn’t so bad if you are able to sleep as much as possible. Mandalay is big by Burmese standards and feels slightly more modern than…
