The wish to visit Japan has been there for a long time. Finally we decided to go at end of 2019. The trip included days in Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. Japan is very much about contrasts and we got the opportunity to experience some of them.


The purpose of the trip was to learn  more about the regions and the people south of Himalaya living in the Sikkim region of northeast part of India, Bhutan and Kathmandu area of Nepal. Tibetan Bhuddism has strong influence in all the regions above..


We have been curious about Cuba for some time and spring 2015 was a good opportunity to visit Cuba. As US and Cuba have declared that they will gradually reduce the embargo we wanted to see how Cuba looks like before US tourist invation. We spend intensive two weeks travelling from Pino del Rio on the west of Cuba, Havana and to Santiago de Cuba on the east side.



2014 we decided to take a trip to an interesting country, Uzbekistan, providing traces from the days of Djingis Kahn, Silk road traffic and Islam, former soviet union and now trying to find it´s way to modern democracy. We visited Tashkent, Nukus, Khiva, Bukhara, Nurat and Samarkand.
