The purpose of this blog is to document the planning phase – with all it´s ups and downs, with all discarded and added ideas, with every bit of improvisation – and then later on the actual trip, with hopefully less failures. And whats a project without a check list? We LOVE lists!

If you have experiences or suggestions, if you consider events, advantages, road blocks.. that we don’t. Please DO reach out to us, leave a comment, tell us everything about it!
