    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!!!!

    In the morning, we moved from the pod to our airbnb, which is on a side street to orchard road. There are georgeous old little houses!
    On the 20th, Nguyen came to visit us for two days - we had a wonderful time and visited the rest of the family in Singapore. As well we went to delicious restaurants, to a museum and shopping :) thank you Nguyen!

    And then the day came... 24th of january... We finally had to pack our stuff for the last time and go to the airport in the evening. We must have lost our swiss punctuality somewhere during our trip... So we once again came a little bit late to the airport. - We didn't have to wait too long before we could board the plane. It was half empty which was wonderful for us to sleep, on almost a bed! 😀

    The day we arrived in Padang we had the afternoon off. But we basically just hung around in our nice hotelroom, because we were so tired and lazy.😅😁
    The next day we chartered a little boat and drove to 2 islands off the coast. Just to lie in the sun and snorkel a bit🌴☀🚣. A very lazy finish to this intresting and funny trip.🛫

    Today we visited the Canyon in Bukkitingi, together with a local guide. We came across about a dozen monkeys🙈 and watched them for a while.
    When we finally managed to get away from the monkeys, we had a look at the old WW2 caves. The japanes built them here im 1942.
    After that we walked through the countryside for about 2 hours with a magnificent view over the ricefields an the little villages.

    In the afternoon we had a cooking class with the same guide and his wife.😊
    We cooked and ate about 8 dishes.😜

    After 10 hours in the bus we finally arrived at our hotel. We then went out for dinner. Our choice was terrible😂. It seems like they put the food from the freezer into the microwave and then half-frozen onto our plates.🤔

    After that we watched a 2h traditional dance performance and even went onto the stage ourselves😉😊.

    We hired bicycles after breakfast and drove to a historic village, where the indiginous people of Samosir Island used to eat their prisoners. Including an english and an american missionary.

    Our guide explained us everything. From feeding the prisoner for a week, seasoning them just before they beheaded them, to eating them raw. Using Rob as his prisoner😂.

    After two hours on the bike we decided that it was way to hot to go on and went back to our hotel to exchange the bicycles with scooters😁.

    With the scooters we drove almost to the top of the island, stopping here and there to take pictures.

    Its definitly a place were i could stay a bit longer😄.
