In the village Torekov in South Sweden Petter’s family runs a restaurant called G Swensons Krog which dates back to 1907. Every time we’re out traveling a piece of our heart remains in this village and in this house. It is a beautiful restaurant with fantastic food! They have a star as the restaurant manager;
One of those nice dinners out on town. Not that we have cooked home even once on this trip, but still one of the better ones. For dessert: outdoor jazz! Tomorrow we’re going to El Salvador, can’t wait!

If you wonder what pupusas is I don’t
We bought the trip Flores to Antigua from the same travel agency that had been promising stuff they couldn’t hold, like promising a tour group with max 12 people in it and then it suddenly turned out we were 45 in one gruop with one guide.. SAN JUAN TRAVEL in FLores, apparently they got like
After an early morning and a long day at the amazing ruins of Tikal we enjoyed our last evening in Flores before catching the night bus to Guatemala City. Look at these cute “worrying dolls” we got when we paid the bill at the restaurant, you’re suppose to put all your problems on them and
