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…

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).

Att se är att tro

Hej! (This blog post is written in Swedish, please use Google translate if needed). Sakta men säkert har dryga två år blivit till mindre en två veckor.
