Podcast #2 – Hitchhiking in Syria

Welcome To Syria!

Our second podcast is here!
This time filled with sounds and stories from the road, mainly in Syria:

  • Learn how to say “Thank You” in 8 different languages!
  • Hear the sound of Turkish radio commercials and radio music
  • Listen to the difficulties and hardships of hitchhiking in Syria ;)
  • Feel the pain that Arabs experience in the cold desert through a moving song from Syria
  • Be first to guess which Gotlandic song we’re singing and win a Turkish ashtray!

…and much more!


We would love your feedback on this!
Let us know what YOU think by posting your comment!

Theme based on track by Matty Blades.

          Ciao Alfio!
          Good to hear from you! Of course we remember you.
          We are right now in beautiful Jordan, Aqaba.
          All the best!

      Tack för din gissning.
      Visst är det good old Summarn Kummar, men tyvärr fanns det en deltagare som var ännu snabbare ute och knep den Turkiska askkoppen. Dock kan du invänta en hälsning i brevlådan för din senaste donation! Tack så mycket! Kram

    I guess the song is the Swedish version of The Chicken Dance, or better known as the Frog Dance.

    Små grodorna, små grodorna är lustiga att se.
    Ej öron, ej öron, ej svansar hava de.
    Kou ack ack ack, kou ack ack ack!

    Small frogs, small frogs are funny to see.
    No ears, no ears, no tails have they.
    Quack quack quack, quack quack quack!

    I hope it came from Gotland’s Middle Summer Festival. I know doesn’t look like you are sing that, but it was the only one I know. :(

    Lycka the contest. Jåtte bro because of 3 things:
    1) challenger.
    2) a bit of difficult since you sung a very little part (in a good way).
    3) it feels like we are gonna to learn something at the end (a popular historical song from Gotland!) The feeling of grow, people love that.

    Actually in my trip I will switch Kiruna to Gotland since it’s used to be a real Viking land and yours.

    En stor kram fran

      Wow Breno,
      that’s an interesting and impressive guess, thank you!
      We are sorry to say it is not completely correct this time, and that somebody else already won the exclusive prize.
      But we are of course looking forward to celebrate midsummer with you on Gotland in the future, and to follow your blog!
