Rio_de_Janeiro_Brazil-1Just i detta nu längtar jag tillbaka en aning till denna plats. För er som missat, visas för tillfället världens absolut viktigaste evenemang (förutom VM i kärringkånk i finska Sonkajärvi) fotbolls VM på TV i detta nu. Om jag fick välja skulle jag gärna varit med och hejat på plats, tyvärr missar jag troligen det denna gång då Google gav mig följande svar.

Det gick inte att skapa någon vägbeskrivning för att gå från”Hammarbyhöjden” till ”Rio de Janeiro, Brasilien

My 2013, November
on januari 2  by Erik Dilexit  has No Comment

My first thought was to finish these throwbacks before 2014, but that didn’t go very well.  So let’s continue where we left in October, Peru. When I first thought about traveling to South America there was three places I really wanted to visit, Rio de Janeiro & the Amazon in Brazil, and Machu Picchu in Peru. When I left Manaus in the end of October I had changed my travel route to go directly to Bolivia and skip Peru, but on my one week long boat trip from Manaus to Porto Velho I did a lot of reading and changed my mind once again. I really wanted to see Machu Picchu, now afterwards I’m really happy I went.

Looking back at the trip and November makes me realize this was the month when I got to see the most different places, jungles mountains, deserts, ruins, cities and more. Here’s a short version of the months pictures. Machu Picchu, Isla del Sol, La Paz, Death Road & Salar de Uyuni. The last half of this month I relaxed in Bolivia & Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, that’s why there are no photos from those places.

My 2013, October
on december 30  by Erik Dilexit  has No Comment

And the adventure continues! It’s time for october and another month in Brazil (and a couple of days in Peru). The month started in northern Brazil, more exactly Ilha de Marajo, where me and my german travel mate Till where heading deeper into the amazon by boat. Totally I spent 2 weeks onboard 3 different boats during this month. I would say the first 2 days was most fun and exiting. My ”Wheel of Time” audiobook saved me the last trip, it was supposed to take 4 days, it took 7.. (I’m never gonna complain if something is 10 minutes late again, just remember when I arrived 3 days to late.)

Short version of the entire month (if you want the long one you have to ask me) Short boat from Ilha de Marajo to Belem, 3 day boat trip to Santarem, short bus ride to the beautiful Alter do Chao, 3 day jungle tour, 7 days laying sick at the hostel, 2 more days on a boat to Manaus, 7 days of relaxing at Manuas, visiting a okay park (nothing like Inhotim in Belo Horizonte or the Botanico garden in Rio de Janeiro), another 7 days on a boat south to Porto Velho, 4 days on roads to Peru.

My 2013, September

If earlier months has included a lot of new & exiting things, this month and the upcoming two will kick their asses. Just scrolling through the entire month I realize I’ve got to many pictures that I would like to include. First I thought about using a gallery, but it didn’t look as good. So here you go! 1,5 billion pictures! If you wonder why this month included so many photos it’s because I went to south america, and this first month I spent in Brazil. I started out in the south and Rio de Janeiro, continued north by bus to Raposos and Belo Horizonte, and then took a flight to the north and Jericoacoara.

Huge thanks to all the nice people I met on this trip, none mentioned none forgotten.

My summer, and especially July included many things. Laughter, tears of joy & sorrow, family & friends, weddings & funerals etc etc. In short, it included a lot, and for my photography it was a great month.

Btw, I hope you like the new design of the website. Since my brother is home I use his knowledge as much as I can, I point and he fix!

Home sweet home

Traveling is soo much fun, but coming home after a long trip is something special. I’ve been home for almost a week now and the trip already feels like it was ages ago. I haven’t met my entire family yet because a couple of them live so far away, but I’ll see them for christmas at least. So far I’ve just chilled and relaxed, and will do so for a week more before I’ll start as a ski instructor again up at Romme Alpin. I’ve also been spending to much time in front of the computer, eating homemade delicious food, visiting my little niece and nephew, taken the snowmobile for a test run, baked toffee, ate the toffee etc etc..

Uyuni day 3/3
on november 29  by Erik Dilexit  has No Comment

Salar_de_Uyuni_3_Erik_DilexitThis is what we were supposed to to on our 3rd day, jump in the car and go before the sunrise, unfortunately our car broke down in the end of the second day.. Therefore we had to wait until 8-9 to get picked up by another car just to head back to Uyuni again without visiting any of the places in the big national park we just arrived in. I got up early anyhow just to try catch the sunrise, but after 1 minute outside I decided that I would leave the cold alone and live at least a few more days .

So instead of a visiting the thermal springs etc we just got to see some lamas and some rocks.. Though lamas are quite cool, just ask jack or max..

That was all I had from Uyuni, I might make a little summary post from the entire trip tomorrow, because on sunday I’m coming home!

Salar_de_Uyuni_2_Erik_DilexitThe second day started around 7-8 a clock if my memory works. At this point we were already on the border to the salt desert and heading away from it. On the days to to list there was no big fields with white salt, instead huge volcanos and other cool things. Enjoy!
