Going Big on Camping again

Since we left New Zealand we have been longing to get back in our tent again. In Asia it wasn’t really an option and here in South America it has been harder than we expected to camp if you don’t have a vehicle to take you somewhere more remote. A few weeks ago, about one…

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…

Puerto Cayo and five weeks of volunteering

If you have seen pictures from our instagram recently you have probably noticed that we have been volunteering in Puerto Cayo, Ecuador. A small fishing village far away from any tourist attractions, it was the perfect place to see Ecudorian life like it really is. We have moved on now, but the five weeks we…

Questions and answers / Frågor och svar

(För svensk text, scrolla ner under bilden.) Questions and answers How is South America compared to Asia? We have been in South America for about three months now and so far, it has been very positive. At this moment, we can confidently say that we prefer South America to Asia. Hard to say exactly why but it feels warmer and more interesting in some way.  Crime might be higher, but we have not noticed it and…

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…

Getting ready for Part 2

This blogpost is written in Swedish, please use google translate if needed. Vi har nu varit på hemmaplan i två och en halv månad och gör i skrivande stund oss redo för att resa ut i världen igen. Det har varit med blandade känslor (länk till förra blogginlägget) vi varit hemma men vi måste ändå…

We are home. A shorter stay. With mixed feelings.

As we write this blog post we are sitting in Frida’s family summer house in Sweden. Not exactly where we expected to be just 24 hours earlier. Sometimes life throws you curve balls and this week we were thrown a big one. About seven days ago whilst sitting in our hostel room in Nyaung Shwe,…

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…

Myanmar (Burma) – What we noticed in our first day

An early morning plane from Kuala Lumpur took us to the next destination on our adventure, Myanmar (Burma). We landed in Yangon and shared a taxi with two English girls to our hostel. The ride took about an hour and cost us around 7 Euros. Myanmar has only recently opened its borders to tourists after…

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…
