Feet in the sand in Trancoso. Bahia, Brazil |1|

Once in a while, travelling also means going somewhere and doing nothing. nada. That’s what I dreamt of when we planned our Easter break with the children. In truth, it rarely happens in our family ie. to go somewhere and stay put. So we decided to do just that in...

The experience of a lifetime in the Brazilian Amazon

The experience of a lifetime in the Brazilian Amazon

Years ago, when I was wild and free, I took a trip through the Orinoco delta, deep in the tropical forests of Venezuela. It was just me (ok, and an ex-boyfriend), the driver of the boat and a guide. We slept in hammocks under mosquito nets, I bathed in the Orinoco...

BozAroundTheWorld – the end

We are finishing our Round the World today. Last stop, Rio de Janeiro. Right where we started, five months ago. As I write this last post before we head back to London, I am reminded of these buddhist words of wisdom, which I quoted when we were in Burma early...

Where Nature is stronger than Man

Where Nature is stronger than Man

As in Up (a favorite DVD night during our round the world), we followed Mr Fredricksen's dream of seeing the largest waterfalls in South America and headed to Iguazu falls. Impressive..really. Nature is stronger than Man (i hope) As the falls lie exactly at the border...

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

Yes I traveled to Syria last week. Not the broken and abused Syria that we all know from the news but the Syria full of colours, smiles and flavours that once stood proud. That’s right, that's where we all went on Thursday night with a bunch of super girlfriends and...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...

The wife vs. the mother, Bhutan |1|

We're back from a trip in Bhutan, which I really want to document properly on BozAround. It will be mainly through photos as I took sooo many, and they will tell much more about this beautiful country than my own words. Bhutan is roughly the size of Switzerland,...
