Aylas voyage around the world

3 May 2016

I am home!! Sorry for late post, but my phone decided to take a breake from life! Lucky me I have a boyfriend who can fix anything, even from another part of the country! Thank you everyone for fallowing me on this amazing adventure! I'm really quite tuched by how many who actually cares about this journi! Last time I checked there is close to 80 people on this blog! When I startes this, I expected around 20 ๐Ÿ˜‚ Who knew I was a celebrity?? I'll be on Ellen before you know it! Wish I could thank everyone who's helped me, made an impact or just been a great friend on this trip, but as I started making a list I realised that there is close to 60 people involved in this trip! So you all know who you are โค๏ธ I love you all, thank you so much for sharing your story, culture, home, friendship or just an interesting chat! โค๏ธ You are the ones who have made this trip a memorable one! Thank you so much!

1 May 2016

Always seem to wind up in Italy for the long layovers๐Ÿ˜‚
Aah, Cuba โค๏ธ Beautiful, beautiful Cuba! Where everyone is bestfriends in the streets, the weather is always hot and the sea always crystal clear. In Cuba I experienced for the first time this trip how it acctually is to travel alone... Not a bad thing really! (I had the Bredes, but they wheren't with me all the time. 'Cuz they where, of course on vacation themself, didn't want to bother them too much ๐Ÿ˜‚) But the last night I just had to meet up with someone who talked English! Wasn't easy gettig to know people when you don't speak the language. The couchsurfers meetup where amazing! And I got to dance some salsa ๐Ÿ˜ My main goal for Cuba ๐Ÿ˜‚ Cubans really do know how to party!
Since when did a plane function like a bus? Landing in a random place in Cuba letting people off, before going to Milano? O.o
I'm going home! ๐Ÿ™Š Some of the people I met last night thought it was awful that I havn't been swimming in the ocean yet, so they came to my apartment 9 o'clock this morning and we went out for a morning swim ๐Ÿ˜ Then pizza and icecream for breakfast! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Currently standing in this huuuuge line to check in at the airport ๐Ÿ˜“ The line took around 2 hours ๐Ÿ˜“ My feet hurt! Can't belive I'm saying this, but I can't wait until I get on the 11-hour plane! ๐Ÿ™Š

29 April 2016

Time for that salsa to happen! Met up with more travellers and went to this amazing place which used to be a factory, but is now a club/artplace ๐Ÿ˜
Meeting up with fellow couchsurfers ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
Childhood dream complited ๐Ÿ˜ You just got to love Cuban taxis ๐Ÿ˜
Last day spent at the pool ๐Ÿ˜
This place is one of the diamons I've found. All the locals come her with empty bottels to buy homemade juice or fruitmix ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“ Or you can just get a glass of it like me ๐Ÿ˜ There isn't any other tourists here, so they make a little fun of me, trying to make me speak spanish ๐Ÿ˜‚

28 April 2016

At the pizza place this guy who worked there made me a napkinflower and got down on one knee saying I'm beautiful ๐Ÿ˜‚ He kissed my hand and asked for my number!
Sunset โœ… Pizza โœ… Privat balcony โœ… Stars โœ… Ocean โœ… I know I should be eating Cuban food, but this Italian pizza is soooo amazing!!
Ants are not to be joked with, they are not good hosts!! All I wanted was to sit on the wall... Didn't realise they lived 10cm from where I sat down! Well, I know now! Haven't anyone told them to use the toilet and not humans? ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿœ
Taxi in Cuba! Yes, I've been driving in one of those ๐Ÿ˜ Felt like such a local, almost no tourists use them ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's basicly a shared taxi, where you waive at them, and if they are going in youre direction they let you on! First trip I payed like 6 CUC and thought 'okey price!', then when going home I only payed like 1! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Totally ripped off the first time and thought it was a good deal! Stupid tourist-moment๐Ÿ˜‚
Cuban 'mall' Commodoro! That shirt is just the most Cuban thing in the world ๐Ÿ˜‚

26 April 2016

Yadira ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ
I'm in Cuba, so we kind of have to talk about cars! To my suprise Cuba is quite modern. They have the latest phones, music and tecnologi. 1 out of 3 cars are acctually new cars! (I got this statistic from the very accurate counting technice ๐Ÿ˜‚) Lada is still Cubas favorite brand ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‚
At Yadiras' familys house ๐Ÿ˜
Out exploring the streets this morning before Ole and Yadira came and picked me up to go to the Cuban handcraft marked ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ

25 April 2016

Out eating and dancing last night ๐Ÿ˜ Now my plan is to go get to know the streets before meeting up with the Bredes ๐Ÿ˜ Just so you know, wifi is pretty much non-existing... Just so you don't think I'm dead!
Live music at Copacabana ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป
Met up with my dads friend Ole and his wife Yadira on Copacabana ๐Ÿ˜ They took me to this lovely lady who runs a casa particulare, something similar to an Airbnb, and I got this beautiful room!! ๐Ÿ˜ Even got a huuuuge private balcony!
Cuba!!!! ๐Ÿ˜
Bye Bahamas!! What a beautiful place! Even though pretty much everyone tries to take youre money, and it's waaaay to expencive! Do think it would be a good place for ghosthousing for all you backpackers! A lot of empty, but safe houses ๐Ÿ˜‚

24 April 2016

Free food! ๐Ÿ˜ Got a resturant to prepare the fish for us ๐Ÿ˜ Then they suddently didn't take our cards, the resturant ended up with calling the police(the same policemen that I met earlier came), taking my visacard while me and John had to go get cash ๐Ÿ˜‚ His card didn't get accepted, so I just got the money on my mastercard and they just payed me back on paypal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ After yelling at the police for not believing me cuz I was travelling alone we finaly got out if there... They asked me over and over "and your parents just let you?" and I was like yeah! I'm 20! They don't have a say in it! Going to Cuba tomorrow! Don't know how it works with wifi there, but we'll see.
Met up with some fishermen from Florida!! Just going to have a quick shower, then we are going out to eat! Haha, no, I havn't eaten today ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™ˆ It's hard not having a car!
When the police stops you and asks you a bunch of questions and when they found out I just arrived, they wondered if I had eaten ๐Ÿ˜‚ They offered to take me to somewhere to eat, but it's a little scetchy to just get in the car, even though it is the police! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ
Just walking around๐Ÿ˜
I'm in Bahamas people!!! Country 9! As I sed earlier I'm only staying a day cuz of money and safety. But a day in paradase isn't anyones worst nightmare, is it? No possible way I could stay longer then a night tho!!! Backpackers: stay away from Bahamas, like farfarfarfar away! It's sooo expencive! Now I'm just gone chill by the pool until 16.00 when my room is ready and I can charge my phone ๐Ÿ˜
How can I even begin to talk about wonderful USA? It was so good to finaly be in my '2nd home' again! So amazing to meet up with everyone. I'm so greatheful for all the people letting me stay with them! These 5 weeks has just been fantasic! There is too much to go into detail! To many people I already miss so much! (Please come to Norway so I can return the favor!) To see Peder and dad again was just wonderful! Soon home now people!! Just to be able to share with them how my life has been these last couple of crazy months!! I've learned alot more about this country now that I'm older! It still amazes me how many small things you wouldn't think off is different! I like to think I grow to be a better person on this trip, able to pick the good things about every culture. To learn a different way of doing things and a different view of life. Like to cook my bacon in the oven istead of on a pan ๐Ÿ˜‚

23 April 2016

Late-night beach trips ๐Ÿ˜ Okey, so I guess I have to tell the story ๐Ÿ˜‚ I got kicked out from the couchsurfing place... Don't ask me why, he never confronted me, only: she needs to be out in 30 min. He only kept on talking to Alex about me, wich don't make any sence at all... He told me the others didn't like me, wich I find odd, since I have spent a lot of time with them the past days talking? No one seemed to dislike me and we had a great time! (One of the girls where really suprised that I was gone without saying goodbye) Well, anyway, at 23.00 Alex drove me to a hotell where I stayed for the night. All good now ๐Ÿ˜
Chef Alexander promised me milkshake... This is what I got... I am not complaining!

The roadsystem of America. Just saying...
Can we just take a minute and look at the creativity the Americans put into making names? ๐Ÿ˜‚ We have been in the citys 'Normal', 'Clem', 'Norway' and 'Lebanon'. We have been driving 'Friendship Road', '2 Hour Road', 'Turnpike' and 'Pleasantdale Road'. We have also passed 'Peachtree Airport' and 'Hat creek'. Just to mention some of the places we've been. The US are also really good at recykling, we have been in two Nashvilles and two Lebanons ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sorry if some of this is too Norwegian for all of you to make sence of! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Time to hit the road!!
Because life is better when wearing cute socks ๐Ÿ˜
This is terrible ๐Ÿ˜‚ But waaay to funny to not share with you! The program I dowloaded for free was livable, but terrible, until I was done and ready to see through my finish result. Then I saw it, the big red watermark! Haha, so much for beeing free if charge! But what ever, the video is so bad, is proparbly just helps covering it up! And it gives you something to laugh about. Which is a goid thing, so sit back and watch the worst video ever made by a mediastudent. Yes, I'm oddly proud of beeing able to produce something like this after 3 years of learning how to be a perfcetionist ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‡ Hmm, apperantly it's blocked in Germany and Sweeden cuz of the song, sorry about that! But everyone else can see it ๐Ÿ˜‚
Look at this cute motelroom!!! Okey, so a vlog is on the way! Thought I would try something different... Well, at last it was different! The worst video I've ever made ๐Ÿ˜‚ Had to download some random movieediting program that was just crap... I lost all my Adobe programs some time ago ๐Ÿ˜ญ Hope non of my teachers see this, haha! But, I will post it, cuz you'll see a lot of the roadtrip! Just ignore the bad editing all you mediafolks ๐Ÿ˜˜ Just laugh along with me please ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜˜

In China the problem is that no one locks the door at the toilets. So they have signs saying you have to, of course no one does... Minneapolis Airport doesn't have that problem, they fixed it by having gaps between the wall and the door. That way everyone can look in! And you can still lock the door!

17 March 2016

Ready for 11 hours by plane ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
Met John from Montana at the airport in Busan that was on the same plane as me, he bought me food in Tokyo ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ He is also waiting for his plane to Seattle which leavs about the same time as mine! (We both had to wait for about 6 hours ๐Ÿ˜ด) Always fun to hear a new lifestory while waiting! Haha, he has 4 sons in my age (15-24 years old), so I guess his father instinct kicked in when he saw me alone at the gate in Busan! He, as everyone else, assumed I was like 15! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ
I can't begin to describe the lovely feeling of speaking my mother thounge again after 1,5 month! So good to be with Norwegians who understands my culture and have some Norwegain food! Thank you so much for having me Heidi and Kjell Terje! Korea is such a different country. There is a lot of those small things thats so different from home. Like the fact that they bow to you everywhere, for me thats so unnatural! South Korea is really beautiful and the people are so friendly (until you start speaking English to them, then they panick). Everything in Korea is so wellmade, like hikingtracks and parks! Aah, and the fashion. It's so amazing! If ignore the fact that all the boys have what we in Norway call a bollesveis, the style in Korea is so cool! Even the boys make a real effort over here! And the girls just look awsome, if I ever become a fashionista, this is where I'm moving. Why in the world is there no Korean BBQ-places in Norway?!? I think I have to start one. Like right now.

16 March 2016

I got the cold... My head just feels like cotton! ๐Ÿ˜ข Feel bad for the other people on the plane tomorrow, mohaha! Today we went around Donbeck, wich is a park, much like the park in Skudeneshavn!

Another country checked off the list! I've had so much fun in China!!! I really do love the hostellife! The greate wall, the nightmarked, the church and the Temple of Heaven was just amazing, but most of all China was the people I met. You all know I'm not the touristattraction person. For me China was amazing because of all my new friends! Although non of them where Chinese ๐Ÿ˜‚ Chad is from Taiwan, but that doesn't really count... Jakob, Dominik, Rena, Luis, Louise, Eugene, Mark, Chad, Francisco, Sam, Mal and all the others! China wouldn't be the same without them! My best memories are learning salsa/rumba, all the laughter, the nights at the hostel and the long conversations! My newest discovery is that there isn't alot of girls travelling! Cuz I wondered why I always ended up with a bunch of boys, but there isn't a lot of girls to end up with! I find this very strange... In my mixed drom, I was the only one to make it mixed ๐Ÿ˜‚ 7 boys and 1 girl!

Sometimes you just really need to relax, hide in youre bed and sleep until noon without any kind of reson! But now I think it's time to get up ๐Ÿ˜‚ There is 8 people living in my room, so it's pretty social! I love this hostel by the way! The vibe is just sooo amazing, right before I left to meet up with Louise and Eugene I got not fewer then 5 offers to join people in their plans for the day! The staff is great and it's so close to everything! Luis is now on the plane to his next destination. He is by the way an amazing moviemaker! And he hichhiked trough Skandinavia, took the transsiberianrailway, went to Russia and still finds me the crazy one when it comes to travelling? I'm just ready to meet even more awsome people my last two days! (Since all the Gremans have left me ๐Ÿ˜ฑ)

Tanzania has been just amazing in every way. I don't even know where to start. It's just totally different from Norway in pretty much every way possible! And I love it! I absolutely love it! This is one of the places I will recomend everyone to go! And you know what? I know just the poeple to guide you in all of this beauty! They will be happy too meet you! I can't express how gratefull I am for all the things these amazing people have done for me! And the kindness the school have showed me! I'll be back! And for longer than only two weeks next time!!

Iringa ๐Ÿ˜ I love this city! It's not too big, but the perfect size. We went out eating and there was only one table left. Me and Caroline and some guy we havn't met before sat down togheter. (His name is Alfred) He payed for our sodas and we started talking ๐Ÿ˜Š I love the culture here! Something like this would never happen in Norway! He escorted us to the hotel ๐Ÿ˜ We now got a new friend, even though I properbly never meet him again! I like these meetings! Like a boy I met on the plane from Egypt who helped with the visastuff I couldn't figure out in Egypt. We ended up talking, but when I got of the plane, we couldn't find each other! Never saw him again... Love it ๐Ÿ˜ Random meetings are actually the best ones!

Tanzanian' recepies! Can't wait to get home and try them!
I've been hearing about this rainseason since I got here, but have only had sun! Everyone is talking about it! I've been here 9 days and the only rain has been 3 drops per minute for 5 minutes! ๐Ÿ˜‚ But now it's here! The storm is here! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love it!! ๐Ÿ˜ Haha, I'm guessing it's a Norwegian thing ๐Ÿ˜‚ Everyone else is now panicking and running inside to sleep!

It's so good to just have my own place for two weeks, just to relax, read and be by myself! Travelling is a really sosial life ๐Ÿ˜‚ it's good to have a place in the middle of the journi where you can shut the door and be alone! Can't believe Africa is soon coming to an end! This is Lama and Grรธgi by the way! My faithful travel companions! (I'm still a teenager, I'm alowed to drag teddybears all around the world! Not adult yet! When I turn 20 in South Corea I just have to hide them or something!? Naah, I'm never gone grow up anyway!) I just finished To Kill A Mochingbird!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ How to survive the plane without a good book??

We bought a LIVE chicken ๐Ÿ˜ฑ They told me we were going to buy a chicken, and I was like okey, let's go! Then the farmer gave them a live chicken! Rashidy just carried by it's legs! The chicken was just like totally calm, sitting on his hand! It didn't even put up a fight!๐Ÿ“ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ We are going to eat it for lunch ๐Ÿ™Š Rashidy just killed it ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I feel soo bad for the chicken ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ˜ข It really feels wrong to eat it ๐Ÿ˜ญ It was like alive two hours ago! Just look at that proad murderer!! How can he eat it after that?? All good again today btw ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Was only sick a day ๐Ÿ˜Š

24 February 2016

Was only going to test if all of my pens still worked ๐Ÿ˜‚ Things to do when youre sick and dont have a laptop with you ๐Ÿ˜… I have camped in my bed with 'To kill a mockingbird', the Bible, music, notebook and lots of water! I'll be all better tomorrow, just wait and see! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ
The day had to come... To be sick at home sucks, but to be sick while travelling... Don't know if it's malaria, the food, the water, the sun or the malariameds, but I suddently got really dizzy. Told Caroline I needed to lay down a while and went to my appartment. Next thing I know my backyard is covered by my last meal ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I never trow up! Never! So my reaction was: am I dying now? I just waited for my lungs to come out or something ๐Ÿ˜‚ Caroline was just coming over with lunch when she saw me. She made me eat and drink and ordered me to bed. Her teori is that I either have malaria or it's the meds. PS: it's not dangerus if I have malaria, so no need to panick! That's why I take the medesin! It doesn't prevent malaria, it's acctually the cure ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป Read the discription again today, so now I'm not panicking over malaria anymore! Puh, thats a realif! Now I only have the snakes and scary spiders to worry about ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Talked to headmaster Prankas today to find out if there is anything I can contribute with to the school. (I stay here for free, get free food and they don't let me help with anything! They should at least make me pay for it! This is the least I can do in return!) I told them I could learn the kids selfdefence. I think it's something that they really can use and would help them. Maby they don't come in a situation to use it, but just to know that you can defend youreself is really helpful! I know it makes me realax more at least. I think that if I walk down a street looking confident, I'm not an easy target anymore. I blend in better and look like I know where I'm going and what I'm doing. If you are scared people will notice you.

Todays adventure! We walked to this huuge field! They told me that people weren't alowed to do anything with this place, cuz' it's for the animals. ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ๐Ÿ I think it's awsome that all the animals are free. The cowboys are often small boys around 5-10 years old. They take their animals around and meet up with friends. They go and play, but always keep a close eye on their animals! I saw 2 camelions today!!! And a green snake that was hiding in the road! We came past and it jumped out, pretending to attack befor it ran away. It wasn't poisenes, but still scary!

They took me an other direction today ๐Ÿ˜ We got to a school and all the kids just came running! We were completely surronded! Everyone just kept shouting "umzongo! Umzongo!" Witch means white person ๐Ÿ˜‚ Caroline and Rashidy told it was properbly their first time seeing one!๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ They found a good tree to sit on, but I decided I rather would climb the bigger one ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ Never gone grow up!

So this is my toilet here in Tanzania. I'm so going to fall in to it! You flush it by taking a small bucket of water and poor into it ๐Ÿ˜‚ The other picture is my shower. Caroline boiled me some water yesterday and told me to mix it with the cold water to the perfect temprature. Think I realised that I don't really need a shower or a toilet. I now understand how Clem can live on a roof with his solarshower. I did tell you about Clem? Hmm, maby I didn't. I'm gone write a post about him ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's a funny story ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'll put the post with the Maltastuff, so you have to scroll to find it. Won't make sense to put it with the Tanzaniastuff.

Egypt has learnd me so much! It has been an eye-opener to other cultures. Feel like the biggest lesson has been that an other way to do things doesn't have to be defined as better or worse, it's just different. People/I should stop making such a big deal out of it. I was curius to meet Asmaa, as I knew that she would be all covered up ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป Now I think it's beautiful. It's such a strong symbol of love for youre realigion! She meets challenges because of it, but her love to God is always stronger. Can't express how much respect I have for that. As a christian I not only respect it, I'm really moved by the devotian these men and woman have for their God. I found myself reading the Bible every time they were praying! By being around this muslim family, my christian faith has just grown so much stronger. The people of Egypt is such a good people. I found only kindness in them all!

Hey people! Here's some information for the next step in my journy: The 19th I'll be flying to Tanzania ๐Ÿ˜ I'm staying there for two weeks, but I don't think I'll have any internett... I'll still be bloging, but it won't get uploaded before I get wifi. So if you don't hear from me in the two weeks I'm there, I'm not dead! When I get to a place with wifi, I'll upload everything! So stay tuned ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
This 12 year old girl(but we don't know, she might be younger, her parents may be lying about her age) comes from a really poor family... The Khedars needed help in the house and hierd her, that way helping her to a better life. She's been here for 3 days now. Her parents didn't ask for a phonenumber or an adress or anything! It's basicly just luck that she ended up in such a good family! She is thrilled to be sleeping on the coach, cuz' shes always been sleeping on the floor without any type of blanket or anything. There is so much people in need here! Aziz just want to help them all, but he can't of course... But for this girl the family is making a difference.

Napels was frightening, but I made some really good friends at the hostel! The trainride was just stunning! Even with the problems I got when I arrived, it was worth it!

A good story always has a good ending!!
I had to change trains to go to Pozzallo. On the train I realised I forgot to arrange for a taxi to meet me at the station, I'll never do that mistake again! I went off the train and into the street. For me it just looked like a ghetto. I was terrified! I had imagined a mediumsized station, with taxis easely accessesible like all the other stops I've been at. This was just some tracks in the middle of some ghetto! My mom sendt me the number to a taxicompany, and a nice lady came after about 10 min. But my fears didn't end there! We arrived at my prepayed B&B, wich was closed! The cabdriver called up the people at her company and they tried to get a hold of the people in charge og the B&B, but nothing. In the end I told her just to take me to another hotel. She made a phonecall and took me to this beautiful B&B!! The manager where there waiting for me and it's 2 minutes from my ferry! I was petrified, but it turned out for the better! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sunset at Sicily ๐Ÿ˜
Okey, so this just happend: my train went into a ferry?!? A trainboat! And we are crossing some the ocean by boat. On my traintrip. What?!? Is this even a thing? Is it normal for trains to go into ferrys?? My 3 new only-italian-speaking friends have made it their task to watch over me. I need people like that! They told me to go with them, waited for me at the bathroom and found a place we could sit on the boat. We share our food (I made them taste Norwegian Dumle!) and try communicating ๐Ÿ˜Š Love it! 4 strangers is now becoming a team!
The lady at the trainstation told me the train where splitting between my destination and another place. In the train the speekers suddently started talking about my destination, but only in Italian, and I panicked! Was I in the wrong carrige?!? The 3 people sitting next to me didn't know any English, nor did the conducters... Google translate failed to bring my message.... When google fails, you just know you are lost! But in the end I try writing it in a different way, then it finally made sence for the Italians! By then I was sweating, panicked and terrified of stranding in some Italian city! A panickattack a day is mandatory I guess! ๐Ÿ˜‚
On the train! My bag is packed with sooo much food, I have my book with me and are ready to see Italy from the train! 10 hours of amazing sights, good food and a greate story ๐Ÿ˜Š (and a rather dirty window, but hey, you can't have it all, can you?)
I got chocolatemilk for breakfast today!! ๐Ÿ˜ haha, think I have to explain that one ๐Ÿ˜ A proper Norwegian breakfast -toasted Norwegian bread with brown cheese and a glass of chocolate milk- is usually what I miss the most when I travel. Getting my chocolatemilk is always heaven! ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚ Luksusprolemer! Time for train! ๐Ÿšž There is someone at the station who brought their PIANO with them!! Just to sit and play here! Wonderful morning music!

I was going to just relax in my pjs when my newest roomates arrived! Then I had to get dressed again! It was pizzatime! Whent out in the scary street to get pizza with Jasmine from Austrailia and Laise from Brazil ๐Ÿ˜ฑ A scary trip, but it was worth the 100 meters of fear! Now it's time to sleep after a great night! Was a bit sceptical to the idea of a hostel, but it was just such a nice excperience! Just sitting down in the kitchen(where everyone is hanging out) with people from all over the world was just amazing! Can't wait until my next hosteldestination!
My forst night alone! Or without mom, there is 3 others in my room, 2 girls fro Argentina and one from Brazil. Been out and about in Napels with some people from the hostel today. Not my favourite city really... A little creepy to walk around alone here, people are selling stolen phones in the streets. Not to comftertable to be offered an Iphone 6 that's clearly been stolen. I'm exsausted, and gone say bouno notte already!
The streets of Napels ๐Ÿ˜
Arrived the hostel ๐Ÿ‘ฏ My home for the night is the topbunck ๐Ÿ˜‚
Italian trains are no joke๐Ÿ™ˆ

30 January 2016

Oh. My. Gosh. That appeticer was an experience ๐Ÿ˜ Best thing I've ever tasted! Almost a bit sad to eat the pizza after that... ๐Ÿ™ˆ
"But, Ayla! It looks like it's my voyage, not yours!" "Send me some pictures of me then!" Today we finally got our pizza! Food is a hard thing to find outside the tourist season... All the resturants are closed! Don't Italians eat? Where do they go out on dates?? Finally in Positano we found a pizzaria. The pizza was amazing(of course, this is, after all Italy)! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• It took 2 days, but in the end, we got our pizza ๐Ÿ˜
Postiano and Amalfi ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ The narrow streets, the beach, the lemoncake, the pizza, the scariest -but also the most beautiful- busride in history, the homemade icecream, the flowers, the houses clinging on to the mountainside, the lemons, the oranges, the fountains, the crazy driving and all the stairs. Splendida Italia! Bello! ๐Ÿ˜ Btw: click the picture to see more then just a part of it ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Todays catch at the beach
Madarin vs klementin. Mandarin hadde sรฅรฅรฅ mye mer smak! Merket pรฅ smaken at det er klementin vi har hjemme! Walked to the neighboring city, Maiori, today (20 min walk by a small road with mountain on one side, cliff on the other and cars driving like crazy!) We had the famous lemoncake and homemade icecream. Lovely, absolutely lovely! Then everything just shut down at 1 o'clock... We decided to go back to the hotell to have a siesta as well ๐Ÿ˜Š
Minori Palazzo Vingius, hmm, maby it means Vinjes palace? Is this our palace? Why haven't anyone told me I had a palace? When can I move in?

28 January 2016

That feeling when youre name is called by the gate at Gardemoen. And they ask if I have any nailpolish remover with me. They didn't know if they could let me bring the bag with me! It smelled so bad that they were afraid of fire! At the end they took a large platicbag over it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm dreading opening it...
We have arrived our beautiful hotel! We had the most amzing driver, even though we didn't quite understand each other. But we tried our best! Can't wait to explore the city tomorrow! (If you swipe the picture, you can see more)
We are on our way! Made it to Oslo so far. So far so good! We are ready for pizza! ๐Ÿ•

19 January 2016

Only 9 days left!!! Todays mission is to figure out what clothes to bring... Ended up with this, only to realise it's way too much to bring with me ๐Ÿ™ˆ

12 January 2016

Been in Oslo today to apply for my Chinese visa. Not an easy task! They wanted me to travel back again after 5 days to pick it up! That would have been a total of over 2000kr for a silly visa!! I don't think China realises how far away I live from Oslo... But thanks to my lovely aunt and uncle I don't need to! And as a bonus, I got to see my anut May Bente, which doesn't happen often I'm afraid... Now I just have to order 4 tickets, then I'll be ready to go ๐Ÿ˜ 16 days until takeoff!!
