Our good friends in Sydney; Zoe & Mauro are also moving back to Europe, so they came over to visit for a spontaneous long weekend. They left Sydney in March, moving to Amsterdam, as Zoe is from there. We haven´t seen them since they left in March, so it was amazing catching up again.

Last weekend we had a great trip to Dovre National Park, doing two full day mountain hikes experiencing all kinds of weather; rain, snow, strong winds, a bit of sun and fog. We also encountered Musk Ox which there are only 300 left of in Norway, so that was very special. We did not get any decent photos of them, unfortunately.

………..

Norwegian mountains are a must see if you come to Norway, it is amazing how the nature and landscape changes across our the country.

Hi Lovelies

Hope you all had a great weekend? We went up in the mountains again, with stunning hikes and scenery. I´m a bit behind with my blogging, so will share some nature photos later this week.

…………

How beautiful is this courtyard? Holland have several of these “hidden” little gems, and they are all hundreds of years old. The one we are visiting here is in a city south of Holland, called Breda.

Hi lovelies, I thought I wanted to share something important with you today, as I´m constantly trying to live a ethical life, and also stand for all the choices that I make. One thing is to say you do something, another is to actually do it. The past 5 years have been spent travelling and living abroad, so I´ve seen a lot of pollution, rubbish, poverty and tourists taking advantage of being in a foreign land. I know for a fact that travelling can have a negative impact on the environment and it´s surroundings, therefor choosing to make some better choices while on a journey is very important to me. We try to chose the transport that has less of an impact on the environment, support local business and always leaving a place or a country in a good way.

………

Our oceans are extremely polluted. This was my main focus on my recent travel through Asia, as it was shocking to see how much waist are in our oceans, I can not just stand by and watch this. I dedicated time to clean plastic from the beach and from the ocean, even if you only pick up a few pieces of rubbish you are still making a small difference, being a good example for others to follow suit.

Hi lovelies

It´s a rainy Monday here today which is perfect for blog updating reminiscing about sunny days exploring Holland and a bit more serious; job & apartment research, slowly accepting that our to long holiday is coming to an end & new exiting times are starting.

….

Holland is very picturesque, which makes it more fun to take outfit photos and just photos in general, after living in such a new developed country like Australia it is great to be surrounded by old architecture again.

It has been two great weeks in Holland, creating better relations with family in-law and dutch friends. Moving home to Europe will make it much easier for us to build our relationship with everyone on this side of the planet. Holland is only a short flight away for us now, and so is the rest of Europe;

NEW ADVENTURES & DIFFERENT CULTURES

Visiting many different little cities and towns the past few weeks I´ve come to really adore the dutch canals, one of the characteristics of Holland.

Hello Lovelies

We found a great jungle eco resort on our trip the the Khao Sok National Park, that I thought worth sharing with you guys. Lowering in your impact on holiday or travel can be done very easily; taking busses or trains instead of flights, minivans instead of private taxies. Buying big bottles of water refilling your small one or staying at eco lodges / resorts. These are some easy steps to take.

OUR JUNGLE HOUSE

it was a beautiful jungle resort, just on a lovely little river surrounded by amazing limestone, wildlife and jungle. 80% of the property is undeveloped. All the huts are build of natural material, no aircon, free drinking water on 15l bottles for all guests to use and mostly local produce for the restaurant.

Choosing eco lodges lowers your impact when you are travelling, and it can also be a really amazing experience, feeling “one with nature”.

MUCH LOVE

If you love being surrounded by green lush tropical nature as much as I do, Khao Sok National Park should be a must see if you are going to Thailand anytime soon. It is absolutely stunning, despite the crazy rain and humidity.

We stayed in a jungle eco lodge just on the lake, little bamboo huts and tree houses, surrounded by untouched jungle, monkeys, snakes, massive frogs and other jungle life. Despite a lot of rain we did several jungle activities.

night jungle walk – river swimming – day trip trekking, kayaking & hot springs  – river tubing

Love from the rainforest

 

If you have been to Asia before, or are planning on going, the elephant experience is probably high on your list of activities to do. Before you explore elephants in Asia, you should be aware that this is a very “dirty” industry where most places are not treating the elephants any good, unfortunately the demand from tourists are so high, that this places keep racing unhappy miss-treated elephants. It might look like they are “happy” they are overall not. Thankfully there are several sanctuaries through out Thailand that take care of miss-treated, sick or old elephants, we went to an ethical sanctuary here in Phuket, and it made me happy to see happy elephants.
