    To be honest we have no idea yet. We plan to be in South America for more than a year so any prediction will be inaccurate. Thank you very for the invitation! Hopefully we'll meet one day :beer

    Finally, our first video from Paraguay is online!
    We had such an amazing time and the 5+ months we spent here couldn't fit in only one video.
    So, we made a mini-series! For the next 9 weeks, stay tuned for the new episodes :lurk


    *Don't forget to turn on the English subtitles, otherwise it'll be all Greek to you :lol3

    In this episode, we're eating spicy rice, we're drying socks on Kitsos' rack and we discover Paraguay's only mountain!

    Cheers,
    Stergios & Alexandra

    Stergios,

    you are hysterical!!! "We overtook for the first time..." with the visual proof. Couldn't stop laughing!!!! Okay the push button motel, with the mirrors, interesting experience complete with off street parking. Funny story, I'm from NY but married my wife in Brazil. After the wedding we couldn't find a hotel in the city, so we headed a few minutes out of town and just needing sleep we went to one of "those places." Very clean, but wow, kind of strange :-) I felt kind of naughty (even though I was married to my wife) and she hates when I bring it up in front of our Brazilian friends. Seems like you didn't enjoy Brazil and that made me and my wife kind of sad. She kept saying, "but why are they going there?" meaning she wouldn't visit those areas either. There are some beautiful places, great food and most of all, fun people in Brazil. You probably don't like cities, but she is from Curitiba and it really is a great place to visit. Then there are the beach town in the south east, very beautiful.

    Really enjoying your videos, thanks for taking us along!

    Felt kind of naughty even though you were married?!?!?! :rofl Nice one!
    Yes, these places offered lots of laughter :jack
    As for Brazil, actually we enjoyed it and especially its people!
    We weren't expecting this level of "sociableness" and people's "openness" (I don't know if I'm using the right words though hahaha)
    It was the other factors that were against us, that made us suffer a bit:
    Kitsos' (our scooter) engine problems,
    the extreme heat which made Kitsos' problems even worst,
    and last but not least it was the prices (fuel, accommodation, food etc) which made dealing with Kitsos' problems kind of a nightmare.
    Brazil is in our future plans. Perhaps going north all the way to Manaus which was our first plan or something like that.
    Tell your wife that we are very happy we had the chance to see at least this small part of Brazil and met so many amazing people there!
    Thank you for the comment and for coming along on our trip!
