From roughing it in Africa to a cosmopolitan life in Buenos Aires

Hi everyone! 

My hubby Thomas and I decided to take a year of work and just travel, work along the way and just live differently for little while.

We started our trip around the world a bit rougher than we anticipated. Because of heavy snow in Europe at the beginning of December, Heathrow were closed. But determined not to let our travels get postponed on the very first day, we got a flight to Frankfurt and spent a night there visiting Christmas market in our summer-casual-clothes ment for Cape Town, South Africa. Cold and excited we got on the plane and our journey could finally begin! In Cape Town we tasted wine, we saw the penguins and the cape, and after two days with smooth sightseeing we were on our way – on the road to be exact. With a South African-base
d company called Drifters we travelled trough Namibia for 12 days, Botswana for five and then Zimbabwe with Vic Falls before heading to Johannesburg – a total of 26 days on the road.

Travelling in a truck with a group has it´s challenges in every way, but it´s by far the best way to experience Africa. It´s rough, edgy and you experience wild life right outside your tent. We had elephants and leopards in our camp, we lived in the desert for three days with basically 45 degrees Celsius every day and no shadow to be found. We walked with rhinos, we went into a Delta that was so remote, saw sunsets and sunrises we´ll never forget.

But from the rough and edgy we were ready for some civilization. And Buenos Aires is the coolest city on this continent. It´s fresh, highly influenced by Italy and with the proud traditions of tango, wine and meat that you wont find anywhere else.

We spent New Years in Buenos Aires. Our tiny flat is in a very chic neighborhood, Palmero. Coffee shops, boutiques and fabulous meat restaurants is just around the corner. I´ll find the absolute best ones, and report back to you in case you wanna visit!

We´re staying in Argentina for three months, then we´ll travel to Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Peru before heading to New York in May. We have our own travel blog, so if you wanna see more pics check out: vireiser.net. (It´s in Norwegian though…)

I´m so excited to be a part of the Scandinavian Chic-universe, and I hope I can contribute with stories from my travels – fun, hot and of course very chic!

That is so cool- We have just put some plans in motion to do something similar- We have had many people who travel for a year stay with us in our home through the organization Couchsurfing.org- are you familiar with this organization?- we have been doing it for almost three years and it has changed our lives for the better!
Here is an old post I wrote regarding the organization-http://ladyofthearts.blogspot.com/2010/03/experience-world-from-your-couch.html

Hi girls!
I love your comments - so happy you like the photos:) It´s a great journey so far, just so exciting! I´m enjoying every minute of it, and that´s our main reason to break out and just do exactly what we wanted - for a year.

Hope you wanna follow me along the way!

PS- I checked out Couchsurfing.org here in BA, and it´s huge! We´re gonna go to one of their outings soon:)

XOXO - Camilla
