Hola todos y bienvenido a Ecuador!

Hi guys, so we’ve finally arrived to Ecuador – the land of
my dreams. The trip here was fine, I slept pretty much the whole flight. It was
a nice contrast to wake up to chirping birds and t-shirt weather.

The first day we went to Quicentro, the biggest mall in
Ecuador (I think). We got some groceries and other stuff. In the evening we had
dinner at a nearby restaurant and then had an early sleep. Yeah we’re a bit
jetlagged alright.

Yesterday we woke up not so happy due to altitude sickness.
Yes we both knew this would affect us as it did last time we came here. Quito
is the world’s highest located capital at 2 850 metres. The symptoms we
suffer are:





Ache in the body

Short of breath

And Patricio even got a fever in the night.

Today he’s a lot better, I however feel a bit sick =( Hopefully
it will pass during the day because tonight we’re meeting some ecuadorian

We are quite excited today because we’re gonna call some
apartment agencies to go see some nice flats. Since we’re staying probably for
a year we’re renting a more permanent apartment instead of Airbnb.

Anywhooo.. Gotta go take a shower soon but I’m avoiding it
since there’s not hot water. Yes I might be spoiled but I don’t like to shower
in cold water ok!

3 months left

Hello everyone!

It sure has been a while. During these months we have been workin’, sleepin’, eatin’, repeatin’. But we have also done some travelling. In April we celebrated our wedding anniversery in Oslo, Norway. In May we travelled to Budapest and Kiev (and Chernobyl) and in July the whole family went to Warszaw, what an incredible city!

Soon we’re off again, as always. But this time will probably be a little bit different. We are going to Ecuador in January on a one-way-ticket. This is not the first time we book single-way-journeys. However, the plan now is to “not come back”. Ha-ha I know it sounds very dramatic but what I mean is, we want to find our home. This sure has been a struggle for the last five years or so. We just don’t want to live in Sweden. At least not now. 

Do we know where we want to live? Not a clue. If Ecuador wasn’t on the other side of the globe we would for sure root there. But we’re thinking maybe Spain. Well, the idea is to be in Ecuador for one year or more. Just enough time to really think about what we want and where we want to settle.

So now it’s less than three months until we leave. Until then we have so much to do;

- Finish Red LLama #4
- Get new passports
- Sell/get rid of furnitures, clothes and stuff that we cannot bring or won’t need
- Complete retouching the photoshoot we did for Mila Silver
- Book tickets out of Ecuador (we need that in order to get in)
- Fix the living situation in Ecuador, gotta get that apartment!!!

.. And obviously have time for the family. In order to stay above the surface we’re treating ourselves to spa next weekend. Too excited! We’re going to Asia Spa in Varberg, hopefully it’s as nice at it looks.

So, nice catching up and all. Now back to work…

Ecuador I’m coming for you!

Growing and developing

Aaaaand we’re back!

We actually just came back to Sweden after six weeks in Asia. This time we went to Thailand (Rayong & Bangkok), Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore and Indonesia (Batam Island). During these travels we’ve had time to work on our business a lot! 

We’ve been coorporating with different brands (see two examples above) and also doing very exciting articles for Red Llama #4 that will be released later this year (can’t belive it’s going to be our forth issue..).

I remember when we began talking about a starting a business, this was in Costa Rica, 2014. We sat by the breakfast table in San José, by the time we were renting a room at Soledad’s house (a kind but special woman). We dreamed about our own magazine and to be able to work as freelancers and keep travelling the world. By that time we were younger and earned about 600 USD per month (incredible..). Now it’s been more than four years since we quit our jobs in Sweden and set sail for Spain. Since then we’ve been to 13 countries together and lived in Barcelona, Tokyo, Chile and Ecuador for longer periods. 

Yesterday we booked our next trips - Budapest and Ukraine. We’re going for a short trip in May. This time it’s going to be a very different trip. We’re working with more brands and also we’re visiting Chernobyl in Ukraine, how exciting!!
