Ukraine North to South

Ukraine North to South

After a long day in the exclusion zone the day before and a long good nights sleep, we were ready to leave Kyiv and explore more of the country. We picked up our car from Anna, the busy car rental lady, a VW Polo Sedan […]

Kyiv Pt. II, Chernobyl & Pripyat

So next day was Peter’s birthday, and Mads and I woke up Peter with Ukrainian flags and song! After a good breakfast at the hotel buffet we went out to see the statue of Mother Motherland. A great statue in concrete and steel, holding a […]

Kyiv, Ukraine

Kyiv, Ukraine

With good spirit and uncertain expectations, we left Denmark and actually also Europe, since Ukraine is not in the European union. Myself personally, had been looking forward to a trip to eastern Europe for some time, and the possibility to go with two friends whom […]

My flight to Colombia had a stop in Panama City and then went on to Cartagena in Colombia. I landed in Cartagena at 22.30, found a cash machine, withdrew 700.000 Colombian Pesos ~ 1.500 DKK, and took a cab to the city. The cab driver […]

Coming from the hip party hostel in Tulum, the Amigos hostel on Cozumel was the direct opposite, very calm, people going to bad at 21 and so forth, but a nice place nonetheless. This was also the place were I met the most annoying person […]

Tulúm

Tulúm

So having heard so much good about Tulum from other travellers I had to go check it out. The city is located just few kilometres from the ocean, and the beach is also a nature park. Our hostel was a step up from the dirty […]

We came early to our hostel in Valladolid which is only 1,5 hours from Mérida. A lovely little town with not much to do besides Mayan ruins and cenotes. Our hostel “The Candelaria” was amazing, quiet and with a nice garden outback with kitchen, hammocks […]
