First stop: Florida, USA

On November 18th, due date for our trip, we flew from Denmark to Fort Lauderdale. The next 10 days were meant to be an immersive experience into the American way of living. 

Lasse’s father and his wife, Torben and Amber, have been our guides during these 10 days in Florida. Nobody would have been more suitable for this role! 

We visited the Kennedy space center of NASA and we went around looking for alligators, taking breaks at really typical diner places. During the week we spent four days at Amber’s parents house, in the countryside, enjoying the days of Thanksgiving with them. And on the 21st November night we celebrated the birthday of Torben at the beautiful Solomon’s Castle and The Boat on the Moat. A place full of beautiful art pieces made out of recycled materials. 

While we were in the country side we had the opportunity to visit a small and nice vineyard and winery called Bunker Hill vineyard that makes unfiltered wine from muscadine grapes, a grape wine native to the southeastern and south-central United States. The Bunker Hill Vineyard and Winery makes also very good jams and fruit wines. 

Back to Fort Lauderdale we had few days left. Saturday night we decided to go to Heart Nightclub in Miami downtown. Unfortunately coming back home we got in a car accident but both us and the guy that caused the accident are fine, luckily! 
Now we are in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. And we will try to keep the blog updated as much as WiFi allows us!

The (un)lucky trip

Here we go!

Some updates are coming from Lasse’s walking trip from Germany to Italy.

When I first met Lasse last year he was planning a 2 weeks walking path in Sweden through the forest in the north of Sweden, it was only him, a trolley and his hammock. After coming back he has always talked about that moment as one of the most free of his life and a turning point where he realised many important things about how he want to live his life.

Since that walking trip has changed him so much he started many months ago to talk about another walking trip, more advanced and way more challenging than the first one: almost 2000 km of walking from Germany to Italy with an hammock, a Biolite and few other things.

The idea was the following one: Copenhagen – Rostock with a bus and a ferry and then straight down to Italy, walking through small villages and the Alps. Camping in national parks, forests or where it was possible to find a shelter.

A friend of him, Kasper, decided to walk with him.

Unfortunately after only 500 km Lasse got an inflamation in his ankle that got him stuck for at least one week. Because of that the guys decided to rent a car and try to get the best out of the trip, heading to Munich for the beginning of the OctoberFest and to Italy, where I was visiting my family.

Even though they couldn’t walk all the way they have been visiting quite some places, here a list of them: Rostock, Berlin, Hanz, Leipzig, Güstow, Müritz National Park…
Down here you’ll find all the pictures they have been taken during the trip!
Hope you’ll enjoy!

Sensun Festival

First stop!

Is there any better way to spend a summer-weekend in Denmark than going to a festival in the nature?

Thursday afternoon, after having lunch at Tivoli, we take the train to Køge. 40 minutes after we are on the local train to Rødvig with our backpacks, the landscape outside gets more and more quite, few houses and many golden fields are scrolling outside of the train .

The festival is a combination of people, colors and music that is difficult to find in another place, everything looks meant to be there for a shooting of some kind of New Age movie. The guys at the entrance are really welcoming and there is a nice tent where they make food and sell coffee.

The festival is divided in 3 stages: chill out area with cafè, outside stage with a great psychedelic stage design and the huge Tipi Tent that is part of the old limestone mine. The music changes from chill out to techno and a lot of psytrance.

The experience of being in the nature with so many different people makes the festival a place for experimenting, meeting people and discussing about new ways of living life, more nomad and less conventional.

The location is the perfect playground not only for a festival but also for somebody that wants to experience some nature in Denmark and be in front of the open sea. Stevns Klint and all the walking paths around are a great turistic point. The cliff is under the UNESCO heritage and it’s a place where many scientists found fossils and traces of the dinosaurs.

Rødvig, Boesdal Kalkbruin and Stevns Klint are a good daily tour and a relaxing spot for who’s in Copenhagen or wants to travel around Denmark.
