Why people commit suicide in Vietnamese buses

The whole bus smells like a case of bad dihorréa and I feel a bit like Carl Pilkington in “An idiot abroad,” wondering what the hell I’m doing here. Thirteen hours on a Vietnamese over night bus makes the thirty hour bus in South America look like a day spa. An exema is beginning to…

Hysterical Hanoi

We have landed in Vietnam, ready and exited to explore the country for a month. We start in Hanoi to travel up north to the rice terasses in Sapa and then the plan is to go all the way down south along the coastline. Hanoi is a messy city and the traffic is totally insane. The…

Angkor Cambodia

  The great thing with travelling for a longer time is that even if you did not plan to see something, you can afford beeing flexible. We decided at the last minute to go to Cambodja exploring the most impressive ruins of the biggest city in history before the industrial revolution (with more than one million…

Bangkok, Thailand.

We would like to start this post by letting you know that we are safe and sound after the bombings in Thailand. We have only been to Bangkok and were not in any way affected by theese horrifying actions. Bangkok is a dynamic city to say the least. Home to sixteen million people. Saints and sinners,…

Family & Friends

After six and a half months on the road we were happy to take a break to see family and friends! We came back to France from Cuba and stayed there for a few days together. Thereafter I flew to Sweden and spent some time with my closest and ate a ridiculous amount of kanelbullar…

Fantastic Latinamerica

Our 6 and a half months in latin america came to an end. We have our heads full of amazing memories and have been to breathtaking places. We started with the pretentious plan of going from the far south Ushuaia all the way to Cuba in half a year. A very long bus journey when…

inFIDELity

The questions are many. Why is the drink called Cuba libre and what does Cubans less content with the current liberty order at the bar when they want one? How many kids does Fidel Castro have and how many CIA murder attepmts did he survive – the three funniest ones are by far; poison ice…

Chichén Itzá, Mexico

After Tulum we stopped for a day to see Chichèn Itzá, the biggest and most significant Maya ruins of the Yucatan province. It was very impressive! Above; the football field where it wasn’t uncommon to play with your life at stake as the loosing team was sacrifised at the end of the game. There was…

Tulum me away

  I had heard so much about Tulum and had been looking forward to go for a long time. Paradise beaches, spa’s, yoga and diving. What’s not to fall in love with? We stayed in Pueblo Tulum to get a bit of the city as well as the beach. The city feels like a mix between…

Bacalar, Mexico

We were headed for Tulum but decided to stop and rest for one night and one day in Bacalar, Mexico after two border crossings and ten hours of travelling trough the religious crazyness of Belize. I swear, there were more sects than supermarkets in that giant swamp and we early on decided not to stay….

Belize

Our flash visit of Belize ended up being a surprise. We started by paying 15 US dollars each to enter the country at a very grumpy border police. Then just drove shortly to Belize city and changed bus for a ride of 2,5 hours for 30 US dollars each (the most expensive since we started)……

Tikal

On our way to the famous Maya ruins of Tikal we stopped in Flores. A bit by chance we stayed in this beautifully arranged hostel, full of creativity and a great balance between art, light and nature. We stayed in a very sweet tree house, it was great! We joined a guided tour to Tikal….
