    October recap: 4 countries in 4 weekends!

    While contemplating the past 6 months on a never ending train ride home earlier this week, I was wondering about the craziness of my travels these days. While I thought traveling from Norway to Curaçao to Turin within 2 weeks back in June was pretty insane, I can’t help but think that October was even more hectic. During the week I worked and in the weekends, I traveled. Four different countries in four weekends. Packing on Friday (or any other day), leaving the next morning, back on Sunday night and unpacking on Monday. Then work, gym, sleep and packing again.

    we12plog: from Curaçao to Turin

    Wow – that was a silent week on our blog. Somehow we just didn’t get around to posting and since we are no neurotics about this, it felt good to be “away” for a while … Wow – dat was een stille week! Op de een of andere manier kwamen we er niet aan toe om artikelen online te zetten en aangezien we geen stelletje neuroten zijn, voelde het eigenlijk best goed om even “weg” te zijn… Sunday: my second day on Curaçao! Starting with an adventurous morning, we go snorkelling and jetskiing. We have a local lunch at Serka Norman and in the afternoon we hang out at Zanzibar at…
