We have already been in Ecuador for 10 days or so but we have been too busy to update the blog! Now there are some photos from the Galapagos Islands uploaded, more will follow later. We are going now to climb Illiniza Norte and hopefully Cotopaxi and Chimborazo! Hasta luego!

We have arrived to Colombia! But Frida and Freddie (pooooor), they are still in the container in Colon, waiting to make the short trip across to Cartagena. In the meantime we are sleeping a lot, writing emails and wandering the streets of old town Cartagena.

We are in Panama! And we are pleasantly surprised! Unfortunately we do not have many days here, in fact we are already in Panama City arranging the paperwork for sending Frida to Columbia, but on the way here we had some pretty fantastic days. Will post some text and photos as soon as possible!

Costa Rica

We are now in beautiful Costa Rica! We started out relaxing on a couple of beaches after having crossed 4 borders in 5 days but now we are venturing into the country to find something to climb! We are also finding some lovely dirt roads through the hills for Frida so the whole family is happy!

A delicate flower of Costa Rica!

Through El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua

We are now in Nicaragua after passing rather quickly through El Salvador and very quickly through Honduras. In El Salvador we had the best pupusas ever! In Honduras we were lucky not to get stopped too much by corrupted police. And here in Nicaragua we have now settled down on the breezy square in Granada. Soon we will continue to Costa Rica but we would like to buy some good Nicaraguan coffee first!

Pupusas with refried beans in El Salvador – we adore them!

Through Belize to Guatemala

We passed very quickly through Belize and we are now in Guatemala. We will visit the famous Tikal ruins, the spanish colonial city Antigua, lake Atitlan and hopefully we will also get to climb a volcano!

On Friday the 13th July we entered the USA! Now Frida is called “a nice rig” and Freddie is eating a lot of “amburgers”. The parents are drinking spritz aperol, finally! Text and photos will be posted along the way under USA.


We have finally started our trip! First destination Canda. Please follow our main updates under “The Trip -> Canada” and “Photos -> Canada”.
