Today we celebrate that we've been away for two months. We left Sweden the first time on November 6th.
Two people living so close to each other isn't always easy and we have got to see both sides of each other ;) We have been a bit tired of each other sometimes, two very different people who have to get along. One eccentric artist and one grumpy bitch living in a van ❤ but the whole thing have just made us closer.
And over all it have been great, this is the best thing we could ever have done!
And then there is Styrbjörn (the van), the third "little" person on our trip. It's easy to forget him but he is the one who made this whole thing possible. Even though he's a bit wounded and he had his ups and downs (like when he decided to have a broken steering in Germany and made us go back to Sweden) he have been taking us over mountains and even through some of the most dangerous roads (like the 18 degree Wurzenpass) and through small passages in impossible roads. He is the best van we could ever imagine :)
We have seen so much interesting places together that wouldn't be possible to experience any other way. For example living in the haunted Gespensterwald forrest in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, visiting the abandoned löwen-adler-kaserne, experience the Čachtice castle where the blood Countess Elisabeth Bathory lived, all of the crazy and beautiful roads (like this, this and this) we have been driving, the beautiful Cimitero Monumentale di Staglieno in Genoa and the two really cool villages in Italy - Triora the witch town and Bussana Vecchia with all of the hippie artists. That is just a few of the cool places we have been to this far, and it will be more!
