Hanna, a Swede who loves reading Dostoevsky; Alex, a Russian who knows everything about Stieg Larsson, and their little dog Sam (he is illiterate) are the team behind samandthedunes.com.
Hanna and Alex met in Kosovo, made their first work related trip to Lebanon at the end of the Israeli-Lebanese war (2006) and are currently living in the Sahara. It was here they managed to hook up with Sam from the desert and they have been together ever since. You will get to know more about Sam in this blog but let’s start by saying that he is very social and friendly, even though he has the annoying habit of gently (well, at least by dog standards) biting people’s hands.
Anyway, they love to travel, have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and enjoy eating in Michelin star restaurants as well as in fairly unknown hidden treasures in, let’s say, Skopje. Basically they enjoy life, drinking good wine, reading, and spend a lot of time trying to find out what their most fitting sports activity might be (kite-surfing is not one of them). Most of all they like to plan and plot their next trip. Separately and together they have visited over 60 countries and dined in places like New York and Chisinau (bet most of you don’t know where that is).
In essence, if you want to know more about Hanna, Alex and Sam, and all the hot spots and other cool places they visit – stay tuned!
