Ecuadorians seem to especially excited about their visitors. They ask a lot, and do all they can to straighten the challenges they believe that tourists have. A lady tried very hard to solve the complicated transport connections between the Quito airport and the city center. By public means you first need to take an airport …

Bolivia (in English)

04.06.2019, travelfood

My first impression of Bolivians is that they are quite serious people compared to the rest of South America. They dress quite traditionally and are not as talkative and do not gesticulate as much as their neighbors. And that suits us Finns quite well, since we are very similar! For me who does not speak …

As a teenager I saw the box office hit ”Romancing the stone”, which was filmed in Cartagena, Colombia in the 80s and that was where I wanted to travel as well. Then there were the drug wars and the guerilla wars and the tourism faded. Now it is a popular tourism destination again, but also …

Cuba

15.01.2015, travelfood

We visited Havana during the year of changes and it was obvious that the Cubans expected a lot of their future. Hopeful service suggestions show that they trust marketing also in socialist countries. A certain amount of pride was nevertheless visible among the workers. For me it was difficult to understand how a small, not …

Rio de Janeiro (in English)

30.01.2012, travelfood

The temptation to put “Brazil” as the headline for this article was big, but since I visited only Rio in this one of the world’s largest countries, I cannot cover the whole country with a headline like that. Nevertheless, Rio’s importance should not be underestimated, since the city truly is one of the most beautiful …
