Jojo and Norah are on the adventure of a lifetime! They live in a tent on a self-built raft and travel around Sweden’s lakes via the Dalsland Canal.

Their raft measures 2.9-meter x 7-meter and it’s built with impregnated wood and 28 x 200 litre barrels. It weighs a total of 1.5 tonnes and is powered by a 6 hp 2-stroke engine.


The tent, which is a Sibley 500 Protech tent by Canvas Camp, even has electricity thanks to its two 150-watt solar panels and three batteries.When they visit small towns along their route they carry groceries and gas cans on a homemade handcart.
