The view from our place for a month, on Amager, Copenhagen

Wow, it’s been a while, huh?! We honestly have been doing everything but updating the blog which is really a shame…

As you can see from the previous posts we’re now back in Denmark. It’s been nice so far. We’ve both forgotten how awesome summer time in Denmark really is. The light nights are definitely our favorite part! The sun doesn’t set until 10 pm and somehow it doesn’t get as dark in the summer as in Winter.

We have been living with Jonas’ parents, my mom, friends and been able to stay places while people were on vacation. It’s been a bit stressful. But now we have a place for a whole month, which is nice. Finally some peace.

I am actually surprised that I’m enjoying our time in Denmark so much. When we boarded the plane in Fort Lauderdale, I could have cried. I wanted to stay and continue to travel. I was sad when our plane landed in Copenhagen as well. Almost depressed.

But Denmark is growing on me. And I can actually see myself spending my summers here. It’s amazing.

Next stop: Berlin

Yesterday we made an impulsive decision to go to Berlin – this Sunday! We booked everything yesterday and I’m sooo stoked that we’re going! Even if it’s only for two nights.

If you follow the big thing going on in Brazil right now, you’ll know that Germany just went through to the final in the World Cup in soccer! And they did that kicking Brazil’s ass to a point that made it an embarrassment to watch.

They beat Brazil 7 – 1. Ouch. The Brazilian crowd was crying, people started leaving the stadium in the break (where Germany was already leading 5 – 0), and when it was over, the Brazilian team broke down in tears. Double ouch. 

If you didn’t watch the game, this gif sums up what happened pretty well:

(Omg I love gifs sooo much!) So with our neighboring country through to the final, we decided to go down to Berlin and be a part of the celebration and watch the final at Brandenburger Tor with the Germans. Denmark didn’t even qualify for this World Cup. Ugh. So we have to act German and root for them this Sunday! I have German roots from maaaany generations ago anyway, so that must count. Right?

We’re flying back on Tuesday so we’ll get a full day in Berlin on Monday. We got a very nice deal on a great hotel and I seriously can’t wait to go!

What have you guys been up to these past months? :)

A Huge Change Of Plans

We’ll miss beautiful Antigua…

Yesterday when we went to bed I thought “What the hell just happened?” before finally closing my eyes around 4am.

You see, yesterday we did a lot of shopping. We purchased a total of four plane tickets – two each – all of which weren’t planned when we woke up that morning.

It all started when we decided to look at our options for returning home to Europe this summer. We have a lot of stuff going on in our families (graduations, a wedding and birthdays and much more) this summer that we needed to be back for. (more…)

Our Trip From Mexico To Belize By Boat

When our Mexican visas were about to expire we started researching how to travel from Mexico to our next country on the list: Belize!

After doing some research about the night bus to Belize City from Playa del Carmen, I didn’t really want to do it. The bus would cross the border at around 3am and lots of people has experienced the guards there trying to trick them into paying to enter Belize (which you should NOT have to do) just to stuff the money in their pockets.

Also, we would have to go in to the officers at the border alone and I really wasn’t up for the fight with the border control in the middle of the night all by myself. I would totally be ripped off. So we decided to look into sailing from Mexico to Belize. (more…)

Next Stop: Guatemala

Yesterday it was Jonas’ birthday. We had a calm and lovely day on Caye Caulker. We had fry jacks for breakfast, hung out by the ocean, went for coffee and mini doughnuts, talked a lot about future projects, bought the bus ticket for Guatemala, worked a little, went for a walk around the island, had dinner with our favorite Goats, went for ice cream and just relaxed at our perfect little cabana.

But it was also our last day on Caye Caulker. And is night time came my mood just went downhill. I don’t want to leave. I really don’t want to leave!

Our visa expires today. We’ve bought the bus ticket. There’s really no turning back, but Caye Caulker has been treating us so well that I just don’t want to leave.  (more…)

Planning Our Trip Around Central America With Help From These Awesome Travel Bloggers

We’re not huge planners and we have also written about why you don’t need a master plan when you travel. And those are still our thoughts on travel planning.

However, it is important to somehow plan a greater frame of what you want to experience. If you just travel around without a plan about what we want to see and experience, you’ll end up not doing what you really wanted.

So I’ve been doing a lot of planning these past days. I just really want to make sure that we cover a lot of what to see here in the area before moving on. To visualize it I’ve created the map above in Google Maps with a lot of pins on it. (more…)
