Chimborazo – The world’s highest point

After Quito came Latacunga, a town about 100 kilometres south of the capital. Latacunga as a town isn’t exactly bursting with tourist attractions but it is an important hub for anyone wanting to visit some of Ecuador’s most popular natural attractions: (1) Cotopaxi volcano, (2) Chimborazo volcano and (3) Quilotoa Crater Lake….  (2) Chimborazo Volcano…

Bogotá

(For English text, please scroll further down under the pictures) Vi spenderade totalt fyra heldagar i Colombias huvudstad Bogotá. Då detta blev vårt första stopp i Sydamerika klev vi ur taxin, efter en förmodad lång omväg till den turistiga stadsdelen La Candeleria, som hundraprocentiga gringos. Väl ute på trottoarkanten, när den gula taxibilen rullat vidare,…

Good morning Vietnam

After traveling for 24 hours straight on 3 planes (which is expected when you pay for cheaper flights), we finally landed at Hanoi International Airport in Vietnam. As you may already know, Asia can sometimes be a culture shock to many Westerners but thanks to our transfer stop in China for a few hours, I…

”Bula, Welcome to Fiji!”

It doesn’t matter if you are the worst of remembering new words or not, a very short while after landing at Nadi International Airport, Fijis only airport, you will be very familiar with the word Bula. Bula is a positive greeting word meaning many things including…

What makes people happy?

“WHAT MAKES PEOPLE HAPPY? HOW DO PEOPLE REACH THEIR STATE OF WELLBEING AROUND THE WORLD? WILL THE ANSWERS BE SAME OR DO PEOPLE’S VALUES FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES AND SOCIETIES GIVE US A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ANSWER?
