Team West Chat
March 18
Panos
Yes you know the future miss philosophy
<3
Yvonne
Yes, please share philosophical quotes, and not so many naked pics.
And, Panos, you know that we'll stick together for the entore journey, right? You cannot just throw up if you want to get rid of us. Your "no-second-date-move"... not working here. It's kind of impossible to break up with us for 100 days.
(Team East started their chat already on Saturday... phew... But we'll win the challenges.)
Panos
That was an attack...I will drink moderately... maybe...
I will never leave my team... if you are good kids
Yvonne
If we are good kids?!?
Panos
Okay okay ... even if you are not
<3
I was sure about the question ahhahahaah
What are the challenges ?:o
Yvonne
Don't know. The HQ and the ambassadors and the community can come up with ideas.
One will probaby be "Attend a local wedding".
Btw, how is the Visa stuff going, Jed? I saw your e-mail. You need Europe and America, right? I'm in New York right now. Shall I talk to someone, that they'll let you in?
Panos
Cool..i love weddings in
For me its just Usa, will have an interview on thursday !!! Cyprus for a country that many dont know has a good passport actually !!
Jed has the visa challenge :o
Yvonne i dont think u have any probs anywhere hahah
Yvonne
You have a interview??
Not yet, no... I'm a good kid, you know.
Panos
Yes for the visa with usa embassy
With media i have one on thursday too if that was a question:o
Yvonne
I meant the embassy. But media is great. Again? It looked like everyone in Cyprus already interviewed you.
Panos
Still have some places hahaha as many is better so we can take the message out there <3 the interview now its just for yuujou
Yvonne
Yeah! Awesome! I won't understand anything though, right? Or is it in English?
Panos
You wont understand anything :D
Yvonne
Well I have 100 days to learn Cypriot.
Panos
Greek with a cyprus dialect if we want to be more prescise
Wow i love how smart my sentence looks
Yvonne
OMG...
This is what happens when you don't send pics? You are impressed by your own sentences?
(I think we lost Jed somewhere in the conversation. Or in the ocean.)
Panos
I have had a discussion of 4 sentences with him in a period of 4-5 days .. so i think he enjoys his ocean at its fullest because after we wont do so much surfing.. or maybe we will ?^^ahhaha
Yvonne
We will only travel along the coast for Jed.
Panos
I have no problem... i dont know about you though.... you seem to get sunburned easily..........
Yvonne
And you think the sun is worse at the coast? πŸ€”πŸ™„
I will have an extra backpack for sunscreen.
March 19
Panos
-.^ when in coast you more likely to be at the beach that what i meant...Its okay or you can have an umbrella all the time ... btw i get sunburned easily and i am making fun of you hahaha
Jed
If you get sunburnt easily i have some amazing sunblock from SA that’s all organic ☺

Works like a charm πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Let’s say half half , land and sea ☺ coastal and mountains
Ps let’s get a tattoo on our journey 😱
Panos
Ahhaah for sure i want to get a tattoo
Btw we gonna do hiking?:o
Yvonne
A tattoo?!?
I can make you a tattoo. I'm an expert.
Kind of.
Panos
..............i dont know if i can believe that
Okay i can let you make me a line ,it would be an interesting one
Yvonne
Me (sunburnt and yes, a little drunk)
See! Expert!
I am very good at making cloud tattoos.
March 21
Panos
Oh no dangerous woman with us
I will have a cloud under my feet no problemo
My visa for usa is approved soo i am done with stress about visas :D
Jed
I’ll take a cactus 🌡
Panos
Its going to end up being an elephant with yvonnes hand though :o
Yvonne
Because I have such big hands?
πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ
I'm very good at drawing a cactus too πŸ€₯
March 22
So, do we want to buy an old car, rent a car or shall we take the public transport?
Or we buy 3 horses?
Or just walk to Japan? Barfoot.
March 24
Jed
hey Guys, Yuss i had a heavy weekend. Silly phone isnt working and was away shooting a weeding :O So much to catch up on.
Ohhh im os down lets get horses, and bicycles would be awesome.
Panos
I want the horses too
Yvonne
Okay let's get horses then.
Panos
Cool !! We are so serious about this trip i love it <3
Yvonne
Well prepared
Maybe we also buy a donkey? For the luggage?
Panos
The name of my horse would be ginger
Yvonne
?!?
Panos
Yes we have many in cyprus i can bring one with me
Yvonne
The name of my horse will be Panos or Jed. Only to confuse you every time I talk to the horse.
Awesome! Bring three then.
Panos
Okay done !! Its sponsored from yuujou ??
Yvonne
The donkey?
Jed
Ahh my horse name !! salad πŸ₯— ☺
Yvonne
Salad?!
(I think I ended up with two crazy dudes... 😳)
Panos
For sure its the 3 of us....
Just look at this
Yvonne
Who is this person? Don't know her.
Panos
...its crazy philosophy curly swiss traveler pikoliko
You have to meet her
Yvonne
Really? And then she's traveling with us and we need a 4th horse?
Or she can take the donkey?
Panos
No no more
Jed
Hahaha give her the donkey πŸ„
Yvonne
That's a cow! She will never make it to Japan on a cow
Jed
Hahaha we can push πŸ€”!
Yvonne
Poor cow!
Ok, but if we get horses how do we cross the ocean? On them?
Jed
I took this just for you guys πŸ˜‚
Panos
I will rent pegasus from hercules he is greek he is going to trust me
Yvonne
You guys are so clever! We'll make them wings and if that does 't work we rent pegasus.
All set.
Panos
All set ! We wont discuss for transportation anymore ..we should tell that to the office
Yvonne
Team East is buying a cat and a duck instead of horses... Weirdos
Do we have a budget for the animals?
March 25
Jed
Owes 2500 euros


We can buy a horse everywhere we go haha 🐎 and a donkey πŸ„



But serious note who’s bringing a tent ?

Does anyone have one ?
Also if not maybe we look at buying one in Zurich πŸ“
Yvonne
Did you see the email?
I'm currently in New York. And we'll meet in Berlin, no? Or do you plan to visit Zurich before?
And of course we can go snowboarding!
I tried to find a pic of me snowboarding but this is all I got this year: Me talking while putting on the snowboard.
Panos
I tried ski one time.. my legs wide oppened and i fall down...
So we can have funny videos on the trip too
Yvonne
I can teach you. You'll become a pro.
Only snowboarding though.
Panos
Okay snowboarding.. its good that we are insured...
Yvonne
Haha, yes. Shall we also buy a snowboard apart from the horse for everyone?
Panos
Yes and the magic carpet of aladin
Yvonne
Good idea. All set then. Ready to go!
But seriously, do we want a car or no? I don't care, both works for me. But I'm a very bad driver so if we get one you guys most likely have to drive most of the time. If you don't want to drive (which is totally okay) I suggest we'd rather take train and bus.
Panos
I prefer car i think we will be a bit more free
Yvonne
Can you drive on the right side of the street actually? You are both the other side.
Panos
But public transportation doesnt bother me
I drove one more time you need just some time for getting used to it
I mean we can do europe with public transportation its really easy .. basically guys i am fine with anything.. i would like the pegasus but okay
Yvonne
Shall we do public transport in Europe and then buy a car in South America or the US?
Panos
I think this sounds like a plan :D
Jed
I rate Europe and South America public and A car for the USA πŸ’ͺ🏻.
Panos
Route 66 ?ahhaha
We are sorting out cool :o
March 29
Yvonne
So we don't buy a car in Berlin? Maybe we have to ask if we get the money for it even if we buy it in the US.
I'm thinking that South America in a car would be easier too, no?
@Jed Do you have all the visas you need btw?
Panos
My usa visa is readyyyyy :D :D
Yvonne
Yes!!!
Jed
Nope I don’t !

To short of time to get a appointment for the USA visa
Panos
Btw we should have sorted out the car thing before we start travelling ? :o
Yvonne
Uff! That means what?
We should.
But you got the Europe visa?
Panos
Yesss what tha means jed ??:o
But they take his passport soo he needs to wait i think
Yvonneee cool one :9
Yvonne
You cannot leave us alone, Jed.
Panos
What does it mean??
He will not leave us alone everything is going to work i am sure ^^
Yvonne
Are you flying down to South Africa and help him there?
Panos
Let me check the flights...
Yvonne
Ok cool. I can also come and help. There are direct flights from New York.
Jed
Yvonne
Ah okay. So at least you can come to Berlin. That's good. We'll get your US visa somewhere else.
You need Japan too?
My week was great. Still in New York. Saw two theatre plays. Met a lot of friends. Wanted to work, finish my play, but didn't do much.
This play was sooooo good:
Had a photo shoot:
And now I'm catsitting at a friends place:
If we make it to NYC we should definitely see a play!
And I was invited to a piano concert at the Swiss Embassy. Very modern piano playing... rather hitting the piano than playing.
How was your week?
Jed
Yvonne
Wait what was in the magazine?
Your houses on wheels?
Yuujou was in a US magazine! Freaked out when I saw it.
Panos
So cool !!!!!!
Yvonne
Haaaaa
That was your week?
Panos
Me its a bit boring i am on my laptop the whole day tryimg to prepare everything before i leave
I am doing video editing posting blablabla
I go out with friends too but more or less i am in front of my screen the whole time :o
Jed
What too cool
Panos
Jed your city looks similar with mine just a bit more tropical
Jed
What editing do you do bro ?


Haha well we have to pay the bills some how 🌡
Yeah I would say more tropical πŸ’ͺ🏻
Panos
Bro i have a travel blog and staff so i have to organize everything to be posted automatically..
I dont do proffesional editing like you do your work is amazing i saw the commercial you did for mobicel
Jed
Yvonne
Will you guys take your laptop with you?
Jed
This is far too cool
Yvonne
It is, right? So many pages!!!
I made a video too. People thought I'm crazy.
Jed
Ohh that’s sooo cool!!

Travel videos rock πŸ€½β€β™‚


Thanks so much dude. Yeah I have loads of videos just lacking the data πŸ€”
Now that’s cool
Panos
No way i am not bringing laptop with me for sure thats why i do a lot of work now i just want to care 95% for yuujou ahahah
Yvonne
I will. For the writing.
Jed
Ohhh laptop, I would like to maybe take mine but we shell see
Panos
Btw can we use the mac to upload something like on our own staff like youtube channel or it just for yuujou??
Jed
Good question !
Yvonne
I don't know. Ask them
Panos
I thought you know everything
Its okay i will ask you something philosophical the next time
Yvonne
Haha. I'm in New York. The people who know everything are in Zurich.
Haaa! You freak πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
March 30
Panos
I am bit i admit it :o
March 31
Jed
Hey guys, what’s the plans with tents and stuff do one of us have to bring or can we buy a small one once in Berlin ?
Panos
I dont have a tent so i think we should buy in berlin or anywhere in europe.. decathlon has everything for this kind of staff
Jed
Perfect and bear foot hey
Panos
You are going to be the barefoot trainer jed hahah
Yvonne
Guys, read the e-mail... Ot everything provided.
*It's
Panos
I read it :o what did i miss??
Yvonne
Panos
Yess i got itt !! I thought its like the car they provide i thought the money to buy it
Yvonne
πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ˜£
Jed
Mmmm I got pretty much everything besides a tent
Yvonne
So you want to brinh your own stuff?
They'll provide it. If you want to bring your own stuff talk to them that they don't buy it for you and you don't use it then.
Jed
Ahhh it might be easier to just Yuujou’s
Yvonne
But do we need other stuff? Like a little coffee maker thing? Or I don't know... plays? Instruments? teddy bears?
I will bring my running shoes and clothes. But when it is not a safe area, one of you guys has to come running with me...
Although if I get kidnapped you'll have more money to spend for just the two of you.
And more space in the car
Jed
Mmmm yeah I’m definitely keen on a run for sure ☺πŸ’ͺ🏻.

Mmmmm more space and money πŸ€”
Yvonne
Hard decision, right?
πŸ˜‚
Jed
What about a travel one ? Just thinking glass in a bag isn’t the best!
Yvonne
Yeah, I don't have those though.
I'll see if I can find one out of plastic.
Panos
Oh guys i am not a fitness guy but i will take advantage of both of you to get fit hahahahah
Hahaha we will bring like a small thing for cooking too .. i know how to make instant noodles !!!
Yvonne
oh wow now that impressive! we will surivive! instant noodles! you are an amazing cook!
(This is a very good article I just read.)
I will prepare a workout for you! You will look like your brother after these 100 days
Jed
Do we need to bring cooking utensils and so on?
Yvonne
I don't know.
We have to ask
I wouldn't bring too much though. We'll rather try the local food than cook. We get enough money for it.
Panos
I dont like to cook anyway <3
Yvonne
Me neither.
I wouldn't bring utensils actually. Apart from a coffee thing.
Jed
No come now ☝🏼 cooking is a part of friendship building 😊😬
Panos
Oh jed so you want to build our friendship with cooking for us no problem <3
Yvonne
Jed, you're right. My friends cook for me all the time.
The weird thing is: They never let me cook for them...
Panos
Yvonne same here... ahahhahahq
Yvonne
Now Jed wants to change the team 😳
Jed
Hahha maybe I’ll stick to cooking and you guys stick to helping πŸ€”πŸ˜¬πŸ™πŸ» no need for team changing
Yvonne
I'm very good at that!!
I'm a fast learner.
Maybe Panos you sing while Jed is cooking and I'm helping?
Jed
Team improvement πŸ™πŸ»πŸ”₯
Yvonne
We all be better humans after the trip.
Maybe.
Panos
Maybe.... its all a maybe...
We are going to do a really big thing :o
Yvonne
with the cooking?
Panos
-.- noo for the journey
So guys are did we have a conclusion about the transportation?:o
Yvonne
We won't have that much time in Europe. We'll either end up in the UK or Portugal (or even Marroco) before we'll head to South America or the US.
I think a car is more comfortable. But if we can only buy one once we should save the money for we crossed the ocean, no?
I'm leaving NY today and it's okay because the weather is bad.
Now it's sunny again. Should I stay?
April 1
Panos
No much time means like 1 week?:o
I mean you can if you want
Stay.. but i think it will be more fun with us for 100 days
Yvonne
True. I thought that too and took a flight back to Zurich.
Back home.
Panos
The window.
Yvonne
I live in a window, yes. It's cheaper.
April 2
Panos
Cool never heard of anything like i live in a window before but i can expect anything from ginger philosophers
Guys btwwwwww
What and how many shoes are you taking ?
Yvonne
3 pairs probably. Running shoes, which I can also use for hiking, flat light shoes and flip flops.
Or maybe high heels too for all the weddings?
Jed, how is it going with the visa?
Panos
I mean you can go with flat light shoes at weddings no?? We are going to be the travellers of the wedding anyway ahahahha but clubbing and staff is a possibility
Yeh jed hows life with the agencies
Yvonne
I can, yes. But then I'm so short...
April 3
Jed
Ohhh guys it’s now
A Wednesday night going on a Thursday morning πŸš€

But serious Iv been finding it very challenging trying to sort out this visa nonsense πŸ˜“ so I might not be able to land first week 😭
Panos
The european one its so hard ?:o
So its actually thursday ... i am leaving on friday from cyprus.. and i still have to go the army to get some papers ,get my driving liscence ,pack my bag ,say goodbye to everybody... but visa.. its done... and it was the most stressing one.. i understand u man
Jed
Yeah dude it’s been super hard 😱

Cross fingers that all goes well tomorrow ☺
Yvonne
Do you have the interview tomorrow?
I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Panos
Me and the teddy too
Yvonne
I'm glad the teddy is supporting too
April 4
Panos
The teddy is glad because i am glad that you are glad.
Btw in the case of jed coming a bit later what are we doing ?:o
Yvonne
We wait in Berlin and cry.
There is a 99% chance that he'll be late.
So we either start the two of us and he'll join us on the route or we'll go party in Berlin and wait for him there.
Depends on the visa people.
Panos
I somehow like it that litteraly nothing is sure
Yvonne
Not nothing.
Panos
Okay not nothing
Yvonne
I will be in Berlin FOR SURE.
And you too, no?
Or I start by myself?
Just me and the cat?
Panos
You will bring the new york car ?
Cat*
Yvonne
Or course
Panos
Cool cook some asparagus and i am coming in verlin
Yvonne
She's ready.
Panos
She is cool
Yvonne
Very cool
Her name is Lulu.
But she doesn't listen.
So you can call her anything
Panos
I will call her lula
Just for the sake that i can call her anything
Yvonne
Okay. Call her Lula if you want.
Haha. Freak!
Panos

You can get the Colombian visa online. We try to apply for it for you.
You don't have to do anything right now.
Do you have some pictures in visa size of you? Sometimes they ask for this.
Jed
yeah ill have to go take a bunch of photos :D
Yvonne
We will call the Cololmbian Embassy and ask. There are confusing information.
April 10 April 17
Jed
Hey guys , so I’m still waiting for my flipping sms to come through 😭. I might just go in again and sit and wait and see if anything comes of it πŸš€
Yvonne
ugh!!!
but maybe the sms comes later today?
Jed
Yvonne

soooooooooooo cooooool!!!!!
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
whoop whoop! see you soooon!
so, when are you coming?
Jed
Ahh it’s all joy till I have to sort this japanes visa out 😭
Yvonne
i just heard it

April 24
Jed
hey guys hows the travels :D Im getting so itchy :D I wanna come travel so badly
Panos
Hey bro all good we are headinf to Pari tommorow we hope to see you there actually
Hows the japanese visa still no awnser??
Jed
agh no answer im gonna call in now and see if its come in :( So frustrating
Panos
Yeh man do your best you should be with us this week and enjoy paris tooo
I know its not on your hand but lets hope for the best
Jed
yeah shots bro :) its been hard because i cant really take on work and just been sitting waiting. Flip im soooo keen to see paris
Yvonne
come come come jed
I need a running buddy
panos is only joining me every second time
Jed
Ahhhh, soon i shell join in :D
Yvonne
Amazing! You should get news from the Japanese embassy today, right?
Shall I call them?
Play the hysterical woman and shout and cry
Maybe that helps...
Jed
Haha no won’t help 😭 it’s up to the japs on sending it soon
Yvonne
But it takes only 2 days, no!
?
I thought they're so fast...
Have you already packed? So as soon as you get the passport you're good to go?
Jed
Yeah ment too. But they may have only done it yesterday and today so may only get it tomorrow or Friday
Yvonne
Please don't bring anything! We already have too heavy bags πŸ˜‚
Jed
Yeah I’ve done washing now and packed my room for the person to rent it and Iv got all my travel stuff ready
Yvonne
Ah okay... Well, let's hope you get it back tomorrow and can fly out maybe tomorrow night or Friday early
Would be great if you can join us on the weekend
Jed
Yeah would be epic, my worry is that I won’t be able to apply for my US visa in a Europe country and I’ll have to try do it in South America and I really do not want to do that.
All the reviews Iv seem haven’t been good.
Yvonne
I thought Barbados is okay?
But if you apply in South Africa it will take way too long, no? Then we're already in South America or so till you can join
Don't worry about the US visa, we'll do it while traveling.
I can help you with all the paperwork
Jed
Iv got all paper work sorted it’s just finding a place to do it.


Yeah Barbados but any idea how to get that side 🀭
Yvonne
Brazil should also be okay
Europe just takes too long. If you apply e.g. in Switzerland the next possible date for an interview is Mid of May or so.
It will be fine. Don't worry too much. Just get here and the rest will follow.
If not Barbados, there will be another place.
Barbados doesn't look to bad to wait a bit for visa stuff
April 26
Any news from the visa?
April 29
Jed
Hey guys picking up my visa now and got the Japanese visa
Yvonne
Wohooooooooooo!!!!
Finally!!!
Jed
I know
Yvonne
So cool
When are you flying out,
Jed
Up to yuujou team hey
Yvonne
We're going to Auxerre today and stay one night there. We will be in Lyon on Tuesday in the eve.
And will stay there a few nights. So ptobably Lyon works best. If there is an airport.
