QUITO, ECUADOR

Så kom vi til det aller sidste kapitel i mit og min venindes Nord -og Sydamerikanske eventyr. Vi tilbragte vores sidste par dage i Quito for os selv - og nogle venner fra en tidligere gruppe før, at vi skulle vende snuderne hjem af. Ecuador i sig selv er noget mere anderledes i fht. både Bolivia og Peru, og det var ret tydeligt, at jo nordlige vi kom i Sydamerika desto mere "civiliseret" blev det. Derudover var det også noget dyrere her. I Quito spankulerede vi rundt og var bl.a. på et museum fyldt med fotografier, som indbyggere fra Quito har taget, vi stod på ækvator (den gule linje, hvis I skulle være i tvivl) og nød byens hjørner og kroge. Det er en meget fin by, og de mange farverige huse på skråningerne, ser så flotte ud på afstand, da man får sig et panorama view på det hele. Det var med blandede følelser, at vi skulle hjem igen, og vi snakkede begge to om, at vi nok godt kunne have rejst noget længere. Om ikke andet har jeg som person også fået helt vildt meget blod på tanden i henhold til at komme ud og rejse noget mere på sådan en måde. Orv, derudover har jeg faktisk lavet en video over hele vores rejse, som I kan se på youtube: HER. Jeg håber, at I nød at tage et dyk ned i vores eventyr. 

Sadly, the last chapter of me and my girlfriends' adventure had to come to an end. We spent our last days in Quito on our own, but with some friends from a previous trip as well. Ecuador is a bit more different in comparison to Bolivia and Peru and it's quite obvious that the more north you go in Southamerica the more "civilized" it gets. So to say. Also, it's way more expensive here - I wonder if it's because they use the American dollar as their national currency. Well, perhaps. Nevertheless we chilled and visited a museum that exhibited photographies that Ecudorian citizens had captured, we stood on the equator line and discovered some exciting things here and there. It's a very nice city and I really enjoyed all of the colorful houses, which were placed on many slopes. It was with mixed feelings that we had to look each other in the eyes and realize that we were about to head home. We talked about that we actually could have traveled a little longer. Nevertheless, I've gotten a huge lust to go traveling like this again and in general to discover more of the world. Oh and by the way, I've created a little video about our trip, which you can find on youtube HERE. I hope that you enjoyed our little adventure.

A MINION... APPARENTLY

Jumpsuit: Bought in Lima. Shirt: Gina Tricot. Sandals: Pieces. Bum bag: Bought in Peru
Da min søster tog disse billeder af mig, så sagde hun "Ej du ligner en minion", og så kiggede jeg ned på mig selv... Hun havde da fat i et eller andet der, haha. Det havde jeg på ingen måde tænkt over, før at hun nævnte det, men skidt pyt. Jeg havde dette på, på en dag med mine veninder som helt bestemt lå i hyggens tegn. 

As my sister took these pictures of me, she said: "Gosh, you look like a minion" and then I looked down at myself... Well, I kinda did haha. I didn't think about that at all when I dressed but what the heck. I was wearing this on a day well spent with some of my girlfriends.

LORD OF THE RINGS

The ring is from Maanesten
Okay jeg er nok ikke lige Ringenes Herre, men jeg har dog investeret i en ny ring. Min mor absolut elsker butikken, Companys som hun stort set køber alt sit tøj fra, og da de en dag havde 40% discount på alt i butikken, tog hun mig under armen derhen. Der fandt jeg denne fine og minimalistiske ring, som normalt koster 300 kr., men som jeg fik for 180 kr. i stedet. Det var da et rimelig godt scoop. 

Okay I ain't no lord of the rings but I got myself a new ring though... My mom has this favourite shop she nearly buys all of her clothes from and one day they had a 40% discount on everything. I went there with her and then I found this beautiful, minimalistic ring. It usually costs 300 DKK but I got it for 180 DKK and it's sterling silver, so I think it was quite a scoop.

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Tilbage i maj måned da jeg besøgte min veninde i Esbjerg, tog vi nogle andre billeder, udover dem som vi tog på stranden, som I kan finde HER. Dagen før at jeg tog dette billede, gik vi os en tur med hendes hund, og der gik vi forbi denne tunnel, og der fik jeg lige pludselig en idé til et billede. Jeg ville gerne have et billede, hvor hun stod for enden af tunnellen - i solen, altså on the bright side i fht. selve tunnellen, som naturligvis lå i skygge. Jeg kan faktisk ret godt lide billedet, da jeg synes, at hendes pose på en eller anden måde fremkommer ret "stærk". Ret nice, for så passer titlen til billedet bare endnu bedre.

Back when I visited a lovely girlfriend of mine we took some other pictures besides from the ones on the beach, which you can find HERE. The day before I took this picture we took her dog for a walk and like that we walked by this spot and all of a sudden an idea popped into my mind. I wanted to take a picture of her at the end of the tunnel where the sun was able to shine. Like that she'd appear all lighten up compared to the tunnel that was shady. I quite like the picture and especially her pose that looks "strong" somehow and that's nice because then the title matches the picture even better.

HALF A CENTURY

Dress: Pieces. Stilettos: Bianco. Ear rings: Made by me
Min højt elskede far fyldte et halvt århundrede d. 21. juni og i den anledning, så fejrede vi ham med en fest med alle vores venner og familie. Det var sådan en god aften med masser af lækker mad, dejligt selskab, musik, taler, andet underholdning og jeg kunne blive ved... Min far var rigtig tilfreds med aftenen, når han kigger tilbage på den, og det var tydeligt at se, at han havde en helt særlig glow over sig på denne dag. Det var intet mindre en herligt at se på. 

My beloved father turned 50 years old the 21th of June and for that occasion we throw a party with all our friends and family. It was such a good evening with plenty of delicious food, nice company, music, speeches, other entertainments and I could continue for awhile... My dad was super happy when looking back at the day and you could sense a certain glow on him the entire evening. It was lovely to watch.

FLORIDA AND NEW SANDALS

The sandals are from B&CO
I dag rejser jeg til Florida, og jeg glæder mig helt vanvittigt til at komme afsted! Vi skal være afsted i 15 dage og starter ud med at flyve til Orlando, hvorefter at vi kører rundt fra sted til sted og til sidst ender i Miami. Af den grund så tænkte jeg, at det var en god idé at få noget ordentligt fodtøj med sig, når nu vi skal gå rundt og se en masse. Jeg har i noget tid godt kunne tænkte mig nogle praktiske, komfortable og ja, pæne sandaler men det har været lidt svært at finde, i og med at praktisk og pænt ikke altid går hånd i hånd. Jeg fandt dog disse sandaler til halv pris, til kun 350 kr., og dem er jeg ret glad for, at jeg har investeret i. Især fordi at det på nuværende tidspunkt er over 30 grader i Florida, og derfor ville jeg ikke kunne holde ud at rende rundt i sneakers velvidende om, at mine fødder ville nå de 100 grader i løbet a no time. Selvom jeg er væk, har jeg dog planlagt nogle indlæg alligevel, så stay tuned.

Today I'm leaving Denmark for... ta da da Florida! And I'm super excited. We're going to be there for 15 days and we're starting out in Orlando and from there we're supposed to drive from place to place and at the very end, ending up in Miami. For that reason I thought that it would be nice to have some proper foot wear as we for sure are going to walk a lot. For awhile I've been looking for some comfortable, yet good looking sandals but those two things do not always work hand in hand. Though, I found these sandals at half price for only 350 DKK and I'm quite happy I bought them. Especially because the temperature in Florida currently is beyond 30 degrees and I couldn't stand to wear sneakers all day, as my feet without a shadow of a doubt would reach a 100 degrees in no time. Yeah, that wouldn't be so nice. Even though I'm gone I've arranged some posts anyway, so stay tuned.

THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

Min veninde og jeg skulle da også lige forbi Galapagos Øerne, når nu vi alligevel var i Sydamerika, og det var  også noget af et eventyr. Man har jo hørt og læst så mange ting om øerne, som faktisk var virkelig små, og det var spændende, omsider at se dem. Vi cruisede rundt på tre af øerne, med vores gruppe, og det var derudover et camping adventure, så at sige, så vi sov i telt i 7 af de 9 dage, vi var der. Naturen og dyrelivet er helt specielt, og det er så mærkeligt at ligge på stranden, lige ved siden af alle søløverne, som også ligger og slikker sol. I vandet var vi ude og dykke, og der så vi rigtig mange fisk, hajer, pingviner og havskildpadder. Derudover var der kæmpe edderkopper, som vi fik lidt til gode, eftersom at vi jo havde savnet dem i junglen ;-) Vi lærte rigtig mange ting i løbet af vores ophold der, men en sjov fact, som jeg synes, er ret interessant er, at alle de skildpadder som øerne er så kendt for, alle bliver født i fangeskab. Ja wow, alle. De kan simpelthen ikke overleve ude i naturen pga. de mange trusler og dyr - som mennesket i tidernes morgen, bragte til øerne. Nu er det så mennesket, der kæmper for at holde dem i live. Det er lidt food for thought...

My girlfriend and I went by the Galapagos Islands now we found our selves in Southamerica anyway and that was quite an adventure. One have heard and read so much about the islands, which in reality are so small and it was so interesting finally getting so see and explore them. We cruised between three of the islands with our group and moreover it was a camping adventure so like that we spent 7 out of 9 night in tents. Nature and the wild life are so special and it was so weird lying on the beach next to a sea lion, who was sun bathing as well. In the water we went snorkeling and saw different kinds of fish, sharks, penguins and sea turtles. Furthermore, there were giant spiders, which I guess is karma as we missed them in the jungle ;-) We learnt so many things during our stay there but a fun fact, which I really can't forget is that every single tortoise on the islands are born in captivity. Yeah every single one, unbelievable. Because they can't survive on their own in nature as there is too much danger (e.g. dogs, donkeys, vehicles and such) which all are elements that the humans once brought to the islands. Now, it's the man kind who keeps them alive. That's quite food for thought.
