Dreaming of Kilimanjaro Before we even went on our long Asia adventure we had plans of going up Kilimanjaro. We ended up in Indonesia, Nepal and others countries in Asia instead which took us up to mountains like Mt. Batur and the Himalayas. And did we get a taste for those mountains?! you bet we did. Looking at photos of Kilimanjaro and the savannas of Tanzania doesn’t really make it better does it. One day we will be there to climb it. In the meantime we hope you’ll enjoy our previous travels.

The Jungle adventure in Chi Phat, Cambodia Chi Phat is a small eco tourism village society with approximately 35 households located in the west of Cambodia. Surrounded by the Cardamom mountains, one of the last remaining rainforests in South East Asia, it makes this spot perfect for adventures. We spent a couple of months here as volunteers. One of our tasks was to hike or bicycle up to the next village to map and trace any new potential tourist spots. No one had ever mapped this village so we thought this was a very honourable task. We chose to go by mountainbike since it was faster. It was said that it usually takes two hours to get there by mountainbike. There are no roads in Chi Phat and no road to O’Kay village which was the targeted destination. An orangy and red dust road that had been transformed to a long, wide line of mud would lead us there. We were in the middle of the rainy season and there would be no stopping on the rain part. So we figured we should just throw our selves out there. After passing wodden houses on stilts, oxes and huge electrical cows as the locals call them (old fashioned tractors) we turned left on the slippery orange mud into a small path. This path was even muddier and more wet than the other road. We had been told that this part was so leech infested that we should expect at least one or three big ones sucking our blood by the end of that path. It was hard to steer and the […]
Trekking in Sweden – Swedish summer holiday 2015 Sweden is a wonderful country to visit in the Swedish summer. If you like the very very cold it is even nice to visit in the colder months. But now that summer has knocked on the doorstep it is time to get adventurous Swedish style.The Swedish highlands and the Kebnekaise mountain is a beautiful way of spending a summer hiking and trekking around the landscape. But where to start? We would love to go on a Swedish highland trail. Does anyone know where to go trekking in Sweden, which trails and how to get there? Any info would help as we are desperate to get adventurous here in Sweden. Do you need a guide to go hiking and trekking up north? and do you need special permits? Have you gone on a trail up north that you can recommend? Many questions to answer but we’ll be just as happy if you could give us any information about the adventures that lies ahead up north. Thanks from the MahzTravel team
Slottsskogen Zoo, Gothenburg, Sweden When most people think of Gothenurg they might think of seafood, the summers in Sweden and Liseberg. Even though these are all great things and there are lots of things to do in Gothenburg, one of our favorite areas of all Gothenburg is Slottsskogen Zoo. Directly translated to “The Caste forest” it is not really a Zoo in that sence. More like a recreational area or a park with animal encloisures spread out throughout the forest. The park was established in 1874 and is the oldest Zoo in Sweden. Focusing on Nordic Nature the Zoo holds animals like Moose, sheep, Ölands gees, deer, ducks, a seal family, penguins and there is also a small childrens Zoo where the children can interact with some of the animals in the Zoo. At 2 pm and 2.30 everyday you can watch the Zoo keepers feed seals and penguins. There are also wild animals in the forest and some visitors have met wild deer strolling around the park. Even though there are plenty of things for kids in Slottsskogen it is very popular amongst adults. Exersicing, picnics, walking and just hanging out at one of the cafes is a popular way of spending a summers day in Gothenburg. There is also an observatory where you can watch star constellations if weather conditions are good. I used to come here all the time when I was a child. I was fortunate enough to have my grandparents apartment not far from Slottskogen which came in handy if we wanted to go there. And as we moved from Gothenburg we would come here […]
