We are a team of two travel photographers. Husband and wife. Spencer and Vibeke. Together we form www.photito.com

We are specialized in travel reportages delivered as complete text & photo packages, always with a soft spot for the people we meet along the way. This has been our job for the last thirteen years. Spencer sticks to the photography, and Vibeke is always equipped with both a camera and a pen.

Our work is published in Norwegian publications such as VG, Aftenposten, Vagabond, Kamille, www.dinside.no, Reiser og Ferie, KK, Hjemmet, Tara, etc.

At the beginning of 2010 our blog was selected by Lonely Planet to be included in their Blogsherpa Program. This is a collection of travel blogs dedicated to wanderlust. The program sadly ended in 2012, but we are stille alive and kicking, and are updating our facebook page frequently.

We often travel with our two kids, currently aged 9 and 12. On our site you’ll find plenty of advice on where to go with kids, as well as our view of the world in all its glorious diversity. Hang on – did I just use the meaningless word diversity? Forget it. What I meant to say is that we write about anything and everything from how to sneak a free ride on public transport in Oslo to what a scorpion tastes like in the depths of the Sahara.


In addition to this blog, we also run www.photito.com where you can have a look at our very best travel images. It’s for those of you who like to lean back and absorb the world through imagery so vibrant and so alive that you can literally smell that coffee in the Cairo coffee house.

If you have any questions, comments or just want to share your own travel experiences – go for it!

We are really pleased you decided to stop by, and we hope you’ll stay tuned for what goes on behind the scenes on our trips around the world.

  3. Congratulations on your new site dress! It looks great and I am really looking forward to reading your stories and of course watching your pictures. Any plans to take the kiddos with you on one of your travels soon?

  4. Hi Emiel, and thanks for your encouraging words. We’re still not quite there, a few more fittings, and hopefully everything will be in place. Our ‘deadline’ is December, when we’ll be taking the little ones to Laos and Thailand. Doing Christmas next weekend to get it out of the way!
    We’ll make sure to come back with lots of pictures and stories to tell;) Take care!

  6. Greetings – I discovered your blog through lonely planet while reading up a bit on Thailand. Planning my second trip to Asia. I love that you travel with your kids and write about it. I can’t wait to bring mine along…as a single mom I’ll need to wait until my youngest is fully out of the “Mommy, I’m tired..carry me!” stage before we embark on overseas travel as a trio. I’ll keep your blog on my radar.

  7. Hi Rene, I’m sure you have lots of great adventures ahead for your next trip to Asia – with or without kids! The funny thing is – some things were easier when they were smaller – like the fact that we could strap them into their buggies and know they wouldn’t go anywhere… Other things, like eating strange foods and travel in general is easier now that they’re both pretty much on their own two feet. Either way, travelling with kids is – and here’s the honest truth – enriching, exhausting and eventful. You are one brave mother to set sails on your own. Huge thumbs up from us!

  8. Hi there

    My name is Li-Anne, and I find your blog rather entertaining and insightful.

    Accordingly, I was wondering if you would like to make a mention of a competition we are running – which I think your readers, and you might find very intriguing: A free holiday into Africa – who wouldn’t want? I sure could do with a little getaway – all expenses paid – know what I’m saying?

    The details are all in the link below:

    Should you have any other queries – please don’t hesitate to ask me.

    thanks for your time – have an awesome day further!

    Safe travels!
