Longyearbyen, Svalbard

This year we were invited on a trip for the NYE weekend, and we could not say no to this opportunity. This was actually the first time travelling with someone! About midway between continental Norway and the North Pole is Svalbard archipelago. We went to Longyearbyen, Svalbard’s main settlement, situated at 78° north latitude. And […]

Adventurous tour of Peru with TravelBird

We had never heard about TravelBird before, but for this winters trip we did some research and stumbled across their web page. We were actually looking at trips to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, and found one interesting trip. Everything was organized; the hotels, transportations and even some trips and guided tours, and it was not […]

A Look Back at 2017

2017 wasn’t a good blogging year for us, but it’s hard to keep up and stay motivated when you try to get back in the game after a break and your posts only reach a few percent of all our followers. But we will try to write some more blog posts from our previous travels […]

Meeting Mountain Gorillas: A Once In A Lifetime Experience

The clock turned 05:00 am and the alarm rang, finally! We had been sleeping on and off during the whole night as our bodies were filled with excitement.

2016 – A Year Of Travel

The year of 2016 started with a bang as we spent New Year’s Eve in Indonesia, on Bali; ‘the island of a thousand temples’. We had a few days on the island before and after the New Year began, and then we had a 9hour stopover in Singapore on our way home, and we had to exploit […]

Surf ’n Smurf – Catching My First Wave

I just want to share my first surf experience with the whole world, honest and uncensored. So here it goes – feel free to laugh!     For some unknown reason I have been wanting to try surfing, and on my (private) bucket list it says: “Take surf lessons”. Earlier this year we were in […]

I’ve been falling in love with a place I’ve never been before…

For some reason I’ve been falling in love with a place I’ve never been before, and for some reason I can’t get it out of my head. It’s great to feel this, but it’s also scary – scary because it makes it harder to travel with low expectations. I have this fear of being disappointed, […]

China, you struck us with surprise

We’re really sorry to tell you this, but when we told friends that we had booked a trip to China and Beijing some of them told us many negative things; for example that the Chinese people were rude, it was impossible to get a cab, and they didn’t like the city at all… We haven’t […]
