"To travel around the globe with six children between the ages of 2 and 12 are both heaven and hell for the family Holmqvist. nSedan the middle of January, they have traveled around in Asia – and has lost both telephone and bank-id.n– at the same time, we get to be with completely amazing experiences, " says Joel Holmqvist. "
"Aftonbladet met the family Holmqvist the first time just before christmas. Then they packed for their adventure – a land for an indefinite period of time. Now Joel and Lisa have been on the move with their six children in just over a month. "

"– Everything always takes longer when you are eight people. We forget about one to two things in every place we land. You have to be on your toes all the time, " says Joel. "
"On the journey between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur two weeks ago, forgot about Lisa her phone on the flight. At first it felt as no calamity for the family, even if it obviously was a chore to get rid of it. "
"a Little worse was it when Joel would log into their bank on one of the family Ipads and discovered that the youngest daughter, Colette accidentally deleted the two Bank id. "
"– it was Then that we gave up and packed up and went home. We tried to get one and fix it with the bank but it was impossible. You will be completely locked, " says Joel. "
"Joel's phone with the family's last Bank-id was locked up in the safe at the hotel and was taken only when it was absolutely necessary. Was recently contacted by the Singapore Airline that found Lisa's phone. It was very much thanks to that family saved their boarding pass so that the airline could see what number it was on Lisa's seat. The phone came with bud to the family hotel."

"– We had a crazy tough stopover between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. When we landed in Kuala Lumpur so it was a three hour queue at the immigration. Then, we had already traveled for twelve hours before its. But when you think that the limit is reached for what the man is capable of – then you get a little to, " notes Joel. "
"But despite some of the hardships, all the experiences and meetings with new people and cultures a great chance to learn new things and come closer together as a family. Joel notes that children are very curious about how other people, but also animals - live and have it. "
"A great adventure was in Borneo and a visit to the Sepilok where there are wild monkeys, including orangutans and näsapor. "
"– Näsaporna are amazing animals, there are only a thousand left in the entire world, and we were around a meter away from them. They are quite large and they jumped over the heads of the children who laughed and howled – with a certain fear in the laughter. All of a sudden ran it a monkey right next to our feet, and all screamed, " says Joel, who notes that, as a tourist should be careful and listen to the guides and all the information that they provide."
"the Family attracts a lot of attention on their trip. Many are interested in all the kids and want to take pictures and film the family. "
"– It can be a hassle sometimes, but it's how it is, " says Joel. "
