“Our family treasure many stories since we radically left all we knew as common in Sweden that morning in August 2013. We sold it all, started all over with a wish to live a simple life, spend more time with our children, follow our dreams, do more good for and with the world. In our wildest imagination, we could have never counted on experiencing and meeting all the amazing people, adventures, common ground and love we have shared with so many on our Vilostrada journey so far. Our children are world citizens! We are grateful and we promise to keep giving back to the world. Smile. Because – the world is a beautiful place. ”

Jag lever mitt liv som att det är en dans. I mitt hjärta sjunger det! När man gör något som man verkligen brinner för då vaknar man upp på morgonen och bara dansar, oavsett om det regnar eller solen skiner. Och den känslan, mina vänner, bara ut och jaga den.
I live my life dancing, my heart sings. When you live your life passionately then you wake up in the mornings and simply dance, not matter rain or sunshine. And that feeling my friends, go out and chase it!
