This blog post is about the past and how we can deal with it in the present. Of course we heard about Rwanda before going there. Only thing we heard for a long time was about the Genocide. Here you find out why we should never forget and why you should go to the Memorial Center in Kigali.
The capital of Rwanda is called Kigali. This city is so different to all other cities we have seen in Africa so far. Is Kigali a safe place to visit and should you ask the people about the Genocide in the 90ties? Will Rwanda become the Singapore of Africa? And is it really cleaner here than in other countries in Africa? With these questions we booked our flight to Kigali. In these two blog posts about Kigali you can read all about our insights and experiences.
Our Ghana time was all about family, as Nils' sister currently lives with her husband and son in Kumasi and as we could met some friends in Accra. So we got a completely different insight into the local life and were able to enjoy real Ghanaian cuisine. Let us take you through local Accra in this first part of our blog posts about Ghana.
Lagos is energy! It is one of the most vibrant cities we have been to so far. Lagos is the former capital of Nigeria and the biggest city in Africa. Around 20 million people are living here, working here everyday and commuting up to 3 hours per way – each day. You will see really really poor people, really rich as well and from slum to high end everything is present here.
Our travel continues and this time we enter completely new territory for us, because it goes to Africa. In the next four months we will be at the west and east coast as well as in the south of Africa. We will travel to a total of nine countries and we are already very excited about the new adventure. In this blog post you can read how we succeeded in entering the African continent in Senegal.
The most asked question we got about Dubai was if the city has a soul and if it’s worth to go there. Our answer is: Yes, it is!

‘Welcome to Mongolia’ is one of the first things we hear after arriving in Ulan Bator- capital of Mongolia. This is the beginning of many friendly faces and an interesting time. We will stay way longer than we planned and would have our most exciting road trip ever. Mongolia moved us, that’s for sure. We will come back! Our workation in Ulan Bator was a success and we learned to understand the love-hate relationship towards the city a bit more.
We only spend a few days in Bishkek. But for sure we liked it. We have some nice food recommendations for you, especially when you need some western food after many months of traveling. Read all about it in our so far shortest blog post!
We travelled from the new capital Astana to the former capital Almaty by train for 24h - from the north to the south of Kazakhstan. In the south we went for a road trip to some beautiful places and found out that the country has a lot to offer - if you can go there. With mixed feelings and an early cancellation we experienced our road trip and the south of Kazakhstan.
In this blogpost you will find out if we liked Almaty and why our tour through the south of this country was an odyssey for us.
