Multi-legged visitors

We’re getting ready to pack up once again to hit the road. We have a booking for an 8 day cruise in the Galapagos Islands aboard the Beagle (No, it’s not the same boat Darwin used) in late November! We’re super-excited for this trip – it’s been on our highlight list ever since we left […]

México es muy differente

Mexico Everything’s different in Mexico. Everything. Although some things may look similar, they are not quite the same. It’s almost like all of your standards, all that you think is normal, all that you know and are accustomed to, all that escapes through that rolled down window as you approach the booth, in line at […]

So are we in Alaska, or British Columbia?

As we’ve mentioned, we quite enjoyed Alaska, we didn’t want to miss our last opportunity for a visit, so we made the detour to Stewart and Hyder. Stewart is in British Columbia. Hyder is right next door and is technically in Alaska, although they do use Canadian money and run mostly on Canadian time (except […]

Vooruit kijken

De afgelopen twee dagen waren we in het prachtige Ruaha National Park. Overdag werden we getrakteerd op geweldige landschappen gevuld met ontelbaar veel baobabs, giraffen, olifanten, nijlpaarden, krokodillen, kudu’s en meer… veel meer… En ‘s nachts werden we wakker gehouden door het gebrul van leeuwen en nijlpaarden. Het is fantastisch om in Afrika te zijn!!Nu […]

Candelaria Caves, the entrance to the underworld.

The Candelaria caves is a large natural cave system in the municipalities of Chisec and  Raxruha in Guatemala.  This impressive cave system is sacred to the Q’eqchi Maya, and stretches continuously for some 29km (18 miles). The main gallery, Tzul Tacca, is almost 60m (200 ft.) high, 30m (100 ft.) wide, and 200m (650 ft.) long, and […]

Zuid Afrika, Zimbabwe, Nederland

Zimbabwe Terug naar het noorden (a) Jesse is vertrokken, dus hoog tijd voor wat onderhoud. De blog wordt publiceerbaar gemaakt en Dappere Dodo krijgt een beurt; behalve de al voorspelde vervanging van de manchet van de tussenbak zijn er geen extra dingen. We zitten weer op een tijdschema, want over negen dagen komen Dick en […]

Pompeia, a cidade das cinzas

Completamos nossa primeira perna na Itália com sucesso, visitamos Capri e a costa Amalfitana com ótimo tempo, e agora chegava a vez de visitar Pompeia, famosa cidade que foi coberta pelas cinzas de uma erupção no século 1 D.C. Dirigimos até a cidade que leva o mesmo tranquilamente, a estrada é boa e logo na […]

All I Need

The rain pounded on the roof, wind gusts of over 60mph causing the camper to sway. A slight whistle sounded through the vent, even as our collective breathing fogged the windows. Pacific NW camping during a storm. An excellent idea! … Continue reading → All I Need is a post from: The Next Big Adventure

Top 5 fotos – Roma

Com tantos lugares bacanas em nossa viagem, resolvemos separar cinco fotos de alguns lugares que passamos, fotos que não necessariamente retratam bem o lugar, mas sim momentos que saíram bem na foto e que gostamos… simples assim o processo decisório, rs!

Rather a long way from home

The Sign Post Forest in Watson Lake started in 1942 when Private Carl K. Lindley placed a sign pointing to his hometown of Danville, Illinois. The idea caught on, the ‘forest’ has grown and when we added our little sign (12,681 km to Christchurch, New Zealand) they numbered close to 80,000.  

Tenenkrommende bureaucratie

Je moet Afrika natuurlijk niet vergelijken met Europa. Natuurlijk gaan hier dingen langzamer, bureaucratischer en inefficienter. Maar ondanks dat besef staan we soms met gekromde tenen te wachten op weer een formuliertje, stempeltje of papiertje. De grensovergang van Malawi naar Tanzania duurde anderhalf uur terwijl er eigenlijk verder nauwelijks andere mensen waren…. ze zijn dus […]

Noordwaarts / going north

Al ruim een maand reisden we min of meer van west naar (noord)oost door Zuidelijk Afrika. Dat was met name te merken aan de tijdstippen van zonsopkomst en zonsondergang die steeds vroeger werden waardoor ons ritme ook steeds verder naar een vroeger tijdstip verschoof (we bleven namelijk altijd in dezelfde tijdzone).Inmiddels staan we om half zes al […]

Cajamarca, Peru

We spend two nights in Cajamarca and try to make the most of it by seeing some of the town and the surrounding area.  It’s a lovely high mountain city surrounded by small villages and centuries of history. As with… Read More ›

Mees suidelike punt

Nadat we in Willowmore alle tanks en jerrycans weer met benzine hebben gevuld, vinden we via de pomphouder een slaapplek in het stadje. Hij stuurt ons naar Jumpers Place, een hostel voor motorrijders dat wordt gerund door zijn dochter Lisa en haar man Rony. Een goede tip, want die avond kruipen we na een gezellige […]

Tentativa de ascensão ao Huayna Potosi

Hoje aconteceu nossa tentativa de ascensão ao cume do Huayna Potosi (La Paz, Bolívia), com seus 6.088 metros de altitude. Iniciamos a caminhada ontem por uma trilha de pedras, quando subimos do acampamento base a 4.770m até o acampamento alto, a 5.130m. No acampamento alto tentamos dormir cedo, pois a meia noite teríamos que levantar para […]

RESPECT IS A BEAUTIFULLY FITTED TYRE

  The road sweeps left beneath the intersection for Veracruz. At the apex of the bend we flash past a motorcyclist hunched over his machine. His luggage and various paraphernalia stand abandoned in the grass verge. ‘Maybe he needs help’, I say, slamming on the anchors and reversing back up the hard shoulder. I wander […]

Prince of the City

With its nippy handling it is exciting to drive, yet incredibly fuel-efficient. And with its sophisticated safety features you will also feel very secure. A true Prince of the City. “ Een kleine 2000km ín […]
