The trip with a capital 'T' starts early morning on February 14th, Valentine's Day.  India, China, Mexico, Cuba, Peru and Brazil.  Destinations I could only dream about when I was younger.  Back then the most exotic place we ever went was Denmark.  I can't wait to explore the world.  I started in January 2007 with South Africa.  I absolutely loved it.  Now I'm back for more.  The whole world is waiting for me.  Well, not just me.  I'm not going by myself, I have three good friends I got to know during college who's joining me.  Kristine, Marianne and Rannveig.  Four norwegians with such a sick sense of humour is leaving Norway for 4 months.  How on earth will we survive?

Kristine (21 will be 22 when we're leaving):  I bet she's the one of us who talks the most.

First of all: Old(!) picture, taken at a party (may explain the beautyness, hehe). Me and Rannveig (with the crazy eye).
  Give her a penny and she'll talk for hours.  I think it's funny, though.  Very easy to keep a conversation running with her around, hehe.  She's funny, sweet, kind.. interested in history, culture and ofcourse travel.  Likes good music and loves beer.

Rannveig (22):  She was in my class for 3 years in college, and that's also how I met her.  Just like Kristine she appreciates beer.. but also a lot of other things.  Sometimes it seems like she's high on caffeine, but I find it quite entertaining.  We've been talking about this trip for a really long time, and finally we're going!

Marianne (22):  I guess she's the one I know least of us who's going.  But that doesn't concern me.  She's a bit like me.. loves photography and organizing things.  I think we started talking about this trip about a year ago, and she was all for it right away, and still is. 

And then there's me, Frida (21):  Restless and eager to see the world.  Loves photography and meeting locals from all over.  I'm a bit of a organizing-freak, and creates lists over everything.  Likes a good party, but also the lazy days.  Hoping to get some great photos and unbelievable experiences on this trip. 

I think we're a nice, funny, and great group of people.  I have no doubt it's going to be a successful trip.  Definitely the time of our life.  I'm hoping to bring a video camera as well, so we can show friends and family at home how much fun it is to experience the world.

You are more than welcome to join our trip, by reading all about it :)  Also.. if you have any good suggestion about the countries we're visiting, don't hesitate to contact me!
