Arriving to Newfoundland

The wind is definitely a factor to be reckoned with here, the trees are packed tightly together and seemingly shortened to keep the wind from breaking them. That night the wind picked up and rocked the camper for a little while until we had time to adjust…

One month on the road

By Marcela

We’ve now lived in our camper for about a month and are coming into some kind of daily routine. We drive short distances since Atlantic Canada has a lot to offer and we’ve kept the tempo quite low, there’s a lot for us to learn about our new home and lifestyle…

The tidal bore and Cape Breton Island

By Nicho

Before proceeding to Cape Breton Island, which, for me would be the main attraction in Nova Scotia, we had to make a stop in Truro and the Bay of Fundy to watch the tidal bore coming into the bay. It has been…

Back in cold winter again

By Nicho

We arrived in Canada March 3rd, old neighbors and friends of my family reached out to a relative of theirs in Halifax. We got to stay at Tricia’s house for a week and we instantly felt welcomed by this extremely nice lady. There was nothing she wouldn’t do if she…

Nova Scotia, the New Scotland

By Marcela

There is a certain something with the irish culture that makes you feel at home even if you are far from home, family and friends. When I was 17 I went to Dublin to go on an English school during my summer break. I learned that irish people are a friendly bunch and …

There and Back again

By NICHO

As the date of departure is slowly closing in, it comes with a mix of emotions. Mostly I just want to get away from here, especially since it’s wintertime, cold, dark and not much to do. My parents who have lived in Gothenburg all my life have recently moved to …

To prepare for the unknown

I am aware that there are risks in every part of the world you choose to explore – but I claim that many bad experiences happen because travellers are not well informed about the destination or simply don’t understand the code of conduct of the actual country.  To be truly honest my greatest fear at the moment is

The van by the beach

Getting the idea

By NICHO

My girlfriend and I met about two years ago. We both came from families that had travelled quite a lot and passed that interest down to us. It felt only natural that we would travel somewhere neither of us hadn’t been before. Both of us had intest in Central- and …

Buying the camper

By NICHO

Initially our plan was quite simple, fly to Vancouver where some friends of ours live, buy a van, and probably rebuild it ourselves to our needs. However, after giving it some thought it felt a bit like there were too many unknowns in that equation. Just a simple fact …
