How we won with the system, then lost with the system and at the end had the most wonderful week on the far-away island of Vanuatu (South Pacific).
Vanuatu, little island Atchin. Few people there have solar panels, and those panels make it possible to load… a mobile phone. This is the only connection with other parts of the country or the world. People, who have never seen a TV – have never seen more than what is surrounding them: little islands, bush, Read More
It’s a beautiful and very important day to be in Berlin. Exactly 25 years ago the Wall fell and today 8,000 light balloons are showing the people the way how the Wall was crossing Berlin: from Bornholmer Str, to Mauerpark, Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie.
Just that you get a tiny feeling how it can be on the boat on the Pacific – I had no idea before how catamaran looks like, how are the little bedrooms downstairs, how is it to see the water and water and water. Tadadada: the video!
Best company for little kids? Other little kids! Dream place for little kids? Full of toys for kids. During our trip Hanna and Mila were missing their kindergarten in Berlin. So we found a substitute for it: a little island kindi!
So… we had in our hands a little paper with name „Saraken“. We knew he lives on the Atchin island (which is close to Malekula island in Vanuatu) and that his daughter Rachel works in Port Vila in a hotel. We knew he lives with his wife and little Nanneth, daughter of Rachel. And we Read More
The main island of Vanuatu: Efate, can be beautiful but can get also boring. We wanted to leave it as fast as possible, but we couldn’t.
Last year on the world’s largest tourism trade fair ITB Berlin, we talked with just few people. The nicest guy was from… Vanuatu. From where? Is it a country, a city, an island? How many people know the answer? And know anything about Vanuatu? Do you?
A little video of Hanna teaching the kids of Fiji how to sing “Brother John” nursery song. Music always bring people together!
Looks amazing? Like from those holidays’ folders, which annoy you, when you sit in your office or have to clean up at home? Blue sky, turquoise ocean, palm trees. So far away and so inaccessible?
Learning – is probably the most important thing during our travels. Learning more about ourselves, learning to listen and understand the others, learning new skills. So here we go. How to prepare a nice lunch without a shop in Fiji?
„Miss of White Smile“, „Miss Extra Sugar Free“, „Best Smile of the Island“? Oh come on, ALL the smiles of Fiji are awesome. Let’s copy them? ;)
How amazing is to get into a village of strangers, with so different culture and habits and give each other the happiness of just being together, watching each other and learning new things, from each other.
There are a bit more than a 1,000 people living in this Levuka town nowadays and for few days we met maybe 5 white faces. Can you imagine that in 1870s there were 52 hotels full of Europeans?
Fiji is the 50th country I have visited. And I can already tell you: it’s my new favourite country.
„Kids-friendly place“, „Perfect family destination“, „We have amazing playground and babysitter, come to visit our hotel“…. You know what? This is an amazing playground!
We had long and wonderful weeks in Tonga: full of lovely people, boats, (sometimes lonesome) islands, sun, rain and beaches. It was also new for us to travel with two huge backpacks and our two little girls without any car. “Autostop” (hitch-hiking) was our Song of Tonga. We a bit forgot to make videos but here is Read More
Ocean, ocean, ocean for days and nights? This is a feeling not-to-forget-ever! Have you ever hitchhiked from Tonga to Fiji? ;)
Looong weeks in Tonga are a very good lesson of biology: which of those things, which are moving you can eat? Which of those leaves and fruits are edible?
2 weeks knocked out? No mama, no wife, no talks. Just a bed and thousands of thoughts.
