  • iz geits los, how exciting is that! my dearest cousine quickly cut my pony at 5:30am (so they cant grab me by it and i have a clear view) and brought us to the trainstation. and then my mum and best friend sophie came to the airport. sophie gave me a hand-made personalized journal. all in all, what a lucky girl i am!

  • Our adventure allready ends. We had a great time full of wonderful moments, long lasting memories and great encounters we will never forget.

    Our last day in Brasil we spent at Ipanema Beach to soak up the last sunrays. But how could it have been different: On the last day we got rubbed at the beach. So far we were lucky, but the beachbag of Chrigi wasn't there anymore. Fortunately neither camera, phone or other very valuable belongings were in it.

    But now we are looking forward to celebrate Christmas and to see all our friends and families back home. And a big THANK YOU to our families for the heartily welcome at the airport!

    We wish all our readers "Merry Christmas" and thanks for following us! CHEERS 🍸🌴☀️🎄

  • Beautiful day today and I didn't even wear a coat. Walked the hilly streets of the city for two hours and then walked down to Lac Leman and along the lake to Pully. I think I broke my new shoes in and my feet weren't even sore-14 km today. Pully was gorgeous with lots of birds and the lake so clean. When I got back to town I went up to the Olympic museum which was amazing. There were lots if photos from the 2010 Vancouver games. The Olympic flame is lit here all the time. I didn't see the displays because it was a little pricy for me. The one thing that is nice about the hostels here is that they give you a free transportation card so you can save in buses and trams and see the city. Heading out to Bern tomorrow for a day and it's supposed to be wet and cold tomorrow. It was the former home of the Bern bears and of Swiss clock making.Read more

  • Beautiful train trip from Lausanne to Bern, and only one hour 26 minutes. The country side and mountains were beautiful. Got into Bern and spent 3 hours roaming around. Very homogeneous here with all the buildings the same colour of communist green. Very weird. Only spending one night here and then heading to Lucerne. Saw five guys swimming in the river today, holy wow, because I was cold in my down jacket. I had to take a picture of them. Super expensive in this city and so glad I groceries yesterday. Very clean but very tourist driven. They have these shops and restaurants that are in cellars underground. What happens when it rains? Where does the water go? Also noticed that there is no wheelchair access to many sites or cathedrals. When I was here 30 years ago they had the Bern bears in a hole in the ground. The girl at reception said they are still here in hibernation but their hole is bigger.Read more

  • Today was a big walking day for a total of 23km. I started this morning taking a stroll around Lake Rotsee and then made my way through the village of Elikon and then back to my room for a foot rest and my sandwich that I packed from breakfast. At breakfast we did have some pretty aromatic but delicious cheese and a great breaky with two cappucinos, I then set of for Mt. Pilatus, said to have been named after Pontius Pilate, who apparently was buried there. I was going to take the chair to the top but a one way fare was 60 Swiss francs which equals about $80 so I scrapped that idea. I was looking to take more photos of carnival goers but I think they were recovering from yesterday. On my way to Zurich tomorrow and the weather is really standing up for me, with a rainy change for Tuesday.Read more

  • With the help of four nice people I managed to arrive in bologna in one day. Not only that it was quite easy and fast to go 504km with strangers, I also got two new friends and a new older sister in life, Sabrina, who I felt connected to from the first second I saw her :)

    And now we're back, after 7 wonderful months. Our friends and families got up very early to welcome us back home. And Switzerland welcomed us with its typical cold winter weather - where you can blow air in the air and get a little, white cloud... - And that's what we've done as soon as we got off the plane 😅 like little children yejii!!

    And now, after our families welcomed us, Jan and I finally had to go different ways... After 29 Weeks spending every single day together... What a strange feeling!!

    And so we have to start work on monday again - to get some money for our next travels! We can't wait to go again!!

    We're so thankful for everything! How lucky are we to travel so far, meet soo gorgeous, awesome, and crazy people and never had a serious accident or problem!
    But the best thing in all our luck is that we still love each other - just as we are! (jep Jan even survived the few "grumpy Sandra days" 😀)

    A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL FRIENDS AND OUR FAMILIES!!!!
