After spending the last summer in Europe, our family headed towards Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and what a great adventure it was! For almost five months we travelled through these places:

Shanghai – Bali – Darwin – Brisbane – Sydney – Auckland – Hong Kong – the Philippines (Palawan) – Hong Kong – Tokyo

So here it is, our second part of the journey in 33 pictures. Enjoy!

After a looong flight from Portugal, we arrived in the hectic city of Shanghai.


We attended the Shanghai Fashion Fair (thanks to Finpro). A day before the fair started, the whole building seemed to be under a construction state.


But somehow they build the fair up in one night. Papu was honoured to be on the same stand with over 10 other awesome Finnish design and lifestyle brands.


Our story translated in Chinese!


Coffee break in this harmonic cafe was a total relaxation for both body and soul.


After the hectic Shanghai, we headed to Bali to reset our minds. This picture is from Ubud rice terrace.


Balinese food is from heaven! Already miss this!


We got some new friends in the Monkey forest 🙂


Relaxing in the heat.


Only coffee, no wifi in Gili Air island!


Bali offered us some incredible sunsets.


We didn´t know much about Brisbane beforehand but the city surprised us positively!


The Sydney Harbour bridge next to the Sydney Opera House made an impression to us.


The Sydney Zoo was must visit with kids and so much fun, of course!


Our Sydney Airbnb was in Newtown. This hip area was full of interesting houses, wall paintings, bars, small boutiques, and yeah… hipsters.


In Auckland, New Zealand, we had the opportunity to spend some time in our local agents’ home. We were so happy about this, and what is more, we also had some salty liquorice as a gift!


My new favourite Aussie magazine <3


This boiling lake in Rotorua was one of the most amazing places in our New Zealand road trip!


Thermal areas were magical!


I can’t believe that we also saw this in New Zealand!!


Endless hilly meadows in Matamata, New Zealand…


Hong Kong was foggy but also surprisingly beautiful thanks to its many islands and the surrounding sea.


Playtime in Hong Kong.


The new Papu collection -> new favourite outfit 🙂


After the busy Hong Kong, it was time to have some free time again. We spend a couple of weeks in Palawan, Philippines.


On holiday, enjoying colourful mornings.


Japan, spring and cherry blossoms <3


One corner of the wide Tokyo!


Our Japanese agent Janica took us to get inspired and eat some doughnuts in a cool Fred Seagal boutique block in Daikanyama.


Tokyo Imperial Palace, the residence of the Emperor of Japan.


Mmmmm, the Japanese food is so fresh and soooooo delicious!


Some serious work 😉


We had our 10th wedding anniversary in Tokyo. Still happy and crazy together. And the journey continues <3


Now we are in Portland, Oregon. You will hear more about our adventure in the States next month!
