Bo 'n' Louise

A blog about one of our trips

The unprepared round-the-world tour starting 29th of June 2009.
First phase was from USA to South America on motorcycles. We made it, and the bikes are sold.
Second phase was the South Pacific... from island to island in old fashion backpacker style.
Third phase was around and around in Southeast Asia.
In fourth phase Louise went back to Denmark (August 2010) for work, while Bo continued in East Asia.
In fifth phase we were both on work, Louise in South America and Bo in Southeast Asia.
In the sixth phase Louise was in Denmark while Bo was making his way home through Russia.
By November 2010 both Louise and Bo were back in Denmark and an amazing journey has ended - but then there is always the next trip :-)

Returning home

Well, it must happen, that I finally touch down in Denmark.

While Louise had been back in Denmark for month, I arrived in Copenhagen in November 2010 – after 17 months on the road.

An what more to say, that is was “a pretty fine trip”.

Was greeted by Louise and the family at the CPH airport.

And just a picture of my almost-famous Russian jacket which I can finally wear here in Denmark.
