Thailand » Thailand - sum up!

2011-10-26 ( Wednesday ) 03:48:19 GMT+1

Apart from the beautiful sights, the lovely water, and the good weather, the thing we enjoyed the most was the food in this country. Therefore, we decided to make a short sum up from Thailand in terms of meals we managed to capture on a couple of pictures. We will not try to convince you that this was the only thing we ate, because it was ...

Thailand » Koh Lipe (updated with more pics)

2011-10-26 ( Wednesday ) 03:16:37 GMT+1

You know these days when you have completely nothing planned and your main concern is whether to have a swim, or read a book for while and then take a swim? Maybe we should go and eat, and then shower or should we just grab some fruits now and have a delicious dinner later? Should I put sunscreen 50 or 30 on today? Yupp… we are ...

Thailand » Koh Lanta

2011-10-20 ( Thursday ) 09:14:10 GMT+1

After sleeping next to the massive speakers on Phi Phi and leaving the party atmosphere, we took the 1,5h ferry to Koh Lanta. We didn’t really know what to expect. In result, we were astonished by the beach and the place where we stayed. We had a bungalow with a great view next to the beach. We could sit and relax in wooden houses and enjoy ...

Thailand » South Thailand: Krabi & Phi Phi

2011-10-16 ( Sunday ) 16:07:43 GMT+1

After week in Bangkok, it was right time to move accordingly to our plan, namely to the south, and find some nice place to chill out for couple of days. We got a night bus to Trang. At first we had been a bit afraid what to expect after our experience with local connections in India, but this bus was incomparable… clean, comfortable and with proper ...

Thailand » Bangkok - arrived, stayed and leaving..

2011-10-09 ( Sunday ) 11:20:28 GMT+1

The way from India to Thailand was another crazy experience... We woke up earlier since the experience from the days before learned us that it could be hard to catch a cab for the couple of kilometers we had to the airport. There was another festival going on and it was almost impossible to get a taxi, rikshaw or a room. We were walking around with ...

India » Last week in India: Darjeeling

2011-10-04 ( Tuesday ) 10:53:56 GMT+1

Relieved to have a tourist bus with sleeping seats, we jumped into our last Nepali cab to the bus station! Nevertheless, the fact that we got a bus screaming for renovation and two other passengers hade the same lovely seats as us ( meaning in the very back where you cannot move it for a mm!! ) was not a big surprise. After some struggling we ...

Nepal » Trekking in the Himalayan mountains

2011-09-26 ( Monday ) 22:33:30 GMT+1

7 days of trekking... ...actually it was supposed to be 5 days with one day on the bus there, and one day back. But to get to the place where our route started it occured that we had to start climbing/walking at day one! Lonely planet says it is only 117 km from Kathmandu to Syabru, which is actually possible... but here in Nepal, people do ...

Nepal » Kathmandu

2011-09-20 ( Tuesday ) 01:42:01 GMT+1

Nepal is the perfect place to do some trekking so we have decided to go and say hello to the nature and the mountains. Since we are all amateurs in trekking, we have chosen a 5 days option that is said to be enough to go and see the Langtang region. In order to make it as safe as possible we are going with a local ...

India » Agra / Varanasi

2011-09-16 ( Friday ) 17:25:42 GMT+1

Before we left Agra, our new friend Shalab showed us another school that they are running, Prelude Public School. We could tell that the kids has everything in this school, from yoga classrooms, to meditation rooms, computer classrooms, to swimming pools and horse riding tracks. The sweetest toilets for the smallest and cricket fields for the older. Several school buses parked outside, ready to pick up ...

He also showed us Taj Mahal from behind, from the garden where a black Taj Mahal was supposed to stand. We were positively surprised by Taj Mahal ...

India » Delhi

2011-09-13 ( Tuesday ) 16:26:55 GMT+1

After the party at Niharikas, we woke up in the early morning to catch our flight to DELHI !! We were actually very surprised of the metro, that is developed to a higher degree than in many European countries. And the Airport express that took us to the centre of New Dehli was very modern and "high class". We perceived Delhi very different from Mumbai at ...

On our last day in Mumbai, we stayed at Niharikas place. We were very lucky, since she organized a party at her place the same night.

India » Another day in Palolem

2011-09-07 ( Wednesday ) 17:31:11 GMT+1

Our PLAN was realized today… Or almost at east…we didn’t wake up as early as we wanted since Mr Moonsoon was visiting us again… Last night, after getting some henna, we decided to do some laundry (see pics), but unfortunately without electricity our fan doesn’t work and it is still wet! :( We will see tomorrow. Today, we did some chilling at the room, waiting for ...

India » Palolem (Goa)

2011-09-06 ( Tuesday ) 15:39:53 GMT+1

Yesterday, with (temporary) no electricity at our room in the little family guest house Somia, we decided to enjoy a meal and go around in Panaji - the capital of Goa. The city has a strong Portuguese influence not only when it comes to infrastructure it occurs, but also with the tradition of siestas. We had to finish up our meal, since the restaurant was closing ...

2011-09-05 ( Monday ) 16:18:08 GMT+1

On Sunday we joined a bowling competition between different companies in Mumbai with our hosts Amrish and Vishal. Andrzej had to jump in since they were one man short, and he rocked! He helped their company a lot... at least in the first round ;) In the afternoon we decided to go to Goa one day earlier, not to loose time. We will try to get ...

“God morning, this is the captain speaking, unfortunately we cannot land in Mumbai at the moment due to the weather conditions and we have to fly for another hour, to Hyderabad and wait there for Mumbai to open the line. An aircraft of this size is not able to land anywhere else”. The minus with a Jumbo Jet : ) We lost 3 hours waiting in ...

We arrived, we met, we hugged, (we laughed at each other and our backpacks), we located our hostel, and we had a Guinness! HELLO LONDON! We stay at Piccadilly Circus Hostel (Sherwood St.) which is pretty cheap and has a great location – walking distance everywhere! The last couple of days, before we left, was really intensive and we had a lot of stuff to fix… ...

I pack my backpack, "repack" it again... another selection and a third reconsideration... a different theory and another try... and it still feels like I will never fit in the f-----g backpack ! :) One backpack, up to a year and around the gloooobe... mmmm, believe me, you are not that cocky anylonger when you see the (almost exploding) backpack ready... It is time to go! ...

Poland » Goodbye MEC

2011-08-25 ( Thursday ) 22:13:39 GMT+1

My last week in MEC is coming to the end. The last day is officially on Friday, but I have already experienced what does it mean to say goodbye to some of my work mates... My wonderful team made me a surprise- they gathered all together behind my back so I hadn't noticed anything. Seriously, they took me by surprise. They said they wanted to give ...

Sweden » Wonderful days...!!

2011-08-25 ( Thursday ) 10:55:39 GMT+1

Since our family is known to make surprises to each other, everyone expected my cousin Magnus to show up on my birthday... So they did everything to mislead us, and they suceeded! Disappointed I started my day at midnight where they were singing via skype (still in Switzerland) and wishing me all the best (a tradition to "attack" eachother at midnight :) ). While I was ...

It was a lot easier to get an Australien Visa; in other words, I could just fill out an application form on the Internet and taaadaa: "The department wishes to advise that a decision has been made on this application and you have been granted an eVisitor on 08 August 2011". Oh Yeaaaaah! Next, United States! J. ...

I have now received my Visa – Thank you, India! I am waiting for Magda and Andrzej to receive theirs – it seems like the procedure is a bit easier in Warsaw, than in Gothenburg. I’ll tell you how it works here: I had to fill out and print a detailed form on the Internet, put it together with a proof of the transaction (650 SEK) ...
