Hallo wir sind es mal wieder :-) (endlich wieder W-Lan)<br /><br /> Gestern haben wir die spanische Grenze mitten in den Pyrenäen überquert und die Nacht auf einem sehr netten, und mal wieder sehr günstigen Campingplatz verbracht. Der heftige Wind vom Mittelmeer ist uns leider gefolgt und hier oben ist es deutlich kälter als die letzten Abende. Wir machen es uns in unserer Höhle oben gemütlich und entscheiden uns für einen klassischen Fernsehabend mit Nüssen und Süßkram.  Ein Spannband mit Haken dient uns als Tablethalterung und die externe Festplatte wird mit kleinen Drähten aufgehängt. Sieht ganz lustig aus und erfüllt voll seinen Zweck.<br /><a name="more"></a>Basteln war auch heute Nachmittag bei der Ankunft gefragt. Andreas hat seine mobile Werkstatt aufgebaut und mal wieder die Hinterachse gecheckt (kaum Öl verloren) und Löcher in unsere Kocherbox gebohrt. Wir haben vor ein paar Tagen festgestellt das es in der Box bei kochen sehr heiß wird und da haben wir überlegt das ein paar Lüftungsschlitze hilfreich sein könnten. Andreas bringt das erste Mal seinen Akkuschrauber zum Einsatz, ich hab ja noch etwas gelästert das wir das Teil mitschlürn müssen, aber jetzt ist es super. Dank Spannungswandler im Wohnraum is der Akku schnell aufgeladen und einsatzbereit. <br /><br /><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OEDXWTC8c8g/VWX9etH0qZI/AAAAAAAACKM/EMA7_dI1chQ/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OEDXWTC8c8g/VWX9etH0qZI/AAAAAAAACKM/EMA7_dI1chQ/s320/upload_-1"/></a><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-c7OICTEWmNU/VWX9j31IFFI/AAAAAAAACKg/nVdCILoO5t8/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-c7OICTEWmNU/VWX9j31IFFI/AAAAAAAACKg/nVdCILoO5t8/s320/upload_-1"/></a><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-mVvPcxzbGnY/VWX9wXinTTI/AAAAAAAACLI/ExInCvOLI40/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-mVvPcxzbGnY/VWX9wXinTTI/AAAAAAAACLI/ExInCvOLI40/s320/upload_-1"/></a><div></div><div></div><br /><br />Hier ein Blick in die Pyrenäen: <br /><div><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zw6O_UV-lo4/VWX93KIWyiI/AAAAAAAACLc/7FkzlsKqbmM/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zw6O_UV-lo4/VWX93KIWyiI/AAAAAAAACLc/7FkzlsKqbmM/s400/upload_-1"/></a></div><br />Das ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen. Wir fahren bestimmt irgendwann nochmal hin. Allerdings ist der Offroad Teil etwas ausgefallen, da wir bei einem Versuch kläglich im Hof eines Spanier gescheitert sind und uns auch so die Landschaft total überwältigt hat, sind wir auf dem Asphalt geblieben. Macht aber auch so total Spaß, offroad kommt ja eh noch genug.<br /><br /> Hier genießen wir grad unser Frühstück. So sieht es bei uns aus wenn wir die Küche "ausgepackt" haben. <br /><br /><div><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2eTDRM_xpnQ/VWX9Xi6dq5I/AAAAAAAACJ4/BU6Vwh1xzK8/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2eTDRM_xpnQ/VWX9Xi6dq5I/AAAAAAAACJ4/BU6Vwh1xzK8/s400/upload_-1"/></a></div><br />Unser Nachbar auf dem Campingplatz hat am frühen Morgen ganz viele Vogelkästen raus geholt und in den Bäumen verteilt. Die kleinen Dinger taten uns etwas leid, aber sie waren sehr hübsch.  <br /><br /><div><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-45cUXLZeTz8/VWX9P-AZNGI/AAAAAAAACJk/OGx_rATf8Ho/s1600/upload_-1"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-45cUXLZeTz8/VWX9P-AZNGI/AAAAAAAACJk/OGx_rATf8Ho/s400/upload_-1"/></a></div>

Racen met Bromsnor

De agent in het wit gesteven overhemd heeft ons middels een ferm handgebaar naar de greppel van de dirt-road verwezen. Geroutineerd overhandigt Marijn al onze papieren; paspoorten, rijbewijs, verzekeringsbewijs en carnet de passage. Als gebruikelijk wachten we het uiterlijk vertoon af waarmee alles wordt nageplozen. Dat onze documenten in het Nederlands of in Engels zijn […]

Tafraoute & Icth

Leaving Taroudant we decided to go 179 Km to Tafraoute, a town which was recommended by a couple we had met on the road yesterday. The drive there is all on the paved road, though still with amazing views and … Continue reading →

Next stop, Stanley, ID. Paul and Camille own a coffee stand here – Peaks and Perks – which is open June through mid-September. Then, they sell pumpkins in the SF Bay Area. Seriously, they sell pumpkins for a month. Then, they travel for 7 months a year. They returned last week from a winter in the Dominican […]

Dirigindo na mão Esquerda

Uma das maiores duvidas sobre dirigir o mundo seria como encararíamos o desafio de dirigir um carro com direção do lado esquerdo em países que se dirige do lado direito. No Reino Unido todo se dirige do lado esquerdo! Como esse problema só começaria no final da nossa passagem pela Europa, na chegada ao Reino […]

Shafer Trail

Lobo da Estrada na terra do Tio Sam

Uma coisa é certa: O Lobo está adorando as terras do Tio Sam!!! Esta foto foi tirada quando fazíamos o Shafer Trail, uma estrada de terra que acompanha o Rio Colorado e adentra o Parque Nacional Canyonland. ANIMAL!!!

<div>After a bleak week at work I decided to call a holiday on Friday to welcome our friends Dan and Sara (<a href="http://www.worldwideride.ca/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.worldwideride.ca</a>) to our humble abode on Friday. I must say it was weird, here are two fellow travellers (still travelling unlike us!) who we first met for a beer in Panama rolling up to Casa Rondelli on the same bikes. We met them again in Vancouver when Sara was back working for a short while and Dan was…..enjoying himself. Really great to have them in our home for a few days, Friday we took them to Queensferry to see the famous Forth rail bridge which of course they hadn’t heard of. My god, what passes for education in the colonies these days? Neither had they heard of Moniaive so we headed to this bustling metropolis to the sidecar rally, Fiona bravely sitting in the chair whist a complete lunatic piloted it (me). Great time at the rally, worth a mention was the punk / ska bands whose average age was higher than mines, great crack and excessive drinking.</div><div>As we took off on Sunday, I tried the crash ability of the outfit by driving directly into some dustbin’s at the side of the road, unknown to me Dan had been up early in the morning and put a huge magnet in one of them to attract the chair to it, minor adjustments alter we were on our way having brightened up everybody’s Sunday morning (except Fiona as she was still in the chair)</div><div>Another party night Sunday with Fi’s family visiting, and then a high speed chauffeured tour of Edinburgh on Monday with Fi in the driving seat looking after us. I have to say I reluctantly climbed a mountain as well, I survived without oxygen or a Sherpa to help me and now I can claim to have climbed a small part of Arthurs seat.</div><div>Lunch in the town and then a superb dinner at Bert and Laurenne’s house topped off a great weekend. A struggle to keep focused at work today but luckily tomorrow we are off to Ireland for the Norton International Rally, life can be hard.</div><div>If you spot a couple of homeless Canadians this week on their BMW’s (the giveaway is the British Colombia numberplates) say hi, the tall blokey one is Dan and the petite girly one is Sara, they’ll be visiting a monument near you soon.   </div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Mc3apoH2DSk/VWTJsakQgwI/AAAAAAAAH8A/JPDQJqfl_ZI/s1600/a1.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Mc3apoH2DSk/VWTJsakQgwI/AAAAAAAAH8A/JPDQJqfl_ZI/s640/a1.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>The Pederson's arrive, both with nice new Bumot panniers</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VPNpAkm_JR8/VWTJsq6AIgI/AAAAAAAAH68/GFk5zqrG7bs/s1600/a2.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VPNpAkm_JR8/VWTJsq6AIgI/AAAAAAAAH68/GFk5zqrG7bs/s640/a2.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>Dan's first ever Irn Bru</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-eSSSW5KQ2Eo/VWTJtHuuZhI/AAAAAAAAH7M/1e90yFOrwg4/s1600/a3.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-eSSSW5KQ2Eo/VWTJtHuuZhI/AAAAAAAAH7M/1e90yFOrwg4/s640/a3.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>It seemed to affect his riding style somewhat</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Uw19dARH3yE/VWTJtmH9qXI/AAAAAAAAH7E/jjFNWkpbCto/s1600/a4.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Uw19dARH3yE/VWTJtmH9qXI/AAAAAAAAH7E/jjFNWkpbCto/s640/a4.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>Fi was sitting backwards in the sidecar taking these, very brave</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fOrmqjVj5k8/VWTJuhUqYfI/AAAAAAAAH7Q/X_Ae4SGGkIU/s1600/a5.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fOrmqjVj5k8/VWTJuhUqYfI/AAAAAAAAH7Q/X_Ae4SGGkIU/s640/a5.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>The team do Dinner (very good it was too)</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_lW1h8ws1kg/VWTJvLuj9LI/AAAAAAAAH7Y/2Ay2rRX3TeU/s1600/a6.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_lW1h8ws1kg/VWTJvLuj9LI/AAAAAAAAH7Y/2Ay2rRX3TeU/s640/a6.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>Helped by the wine</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9ANa32_kvR0/VWTJvm3wXjI/AAAAAAAAH7w/C1bGDHJhoJM/s1600/a7.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9ANa32_kvR0/VWTJvm3wXjI/AAAAAAAAH7w/C1bGDHJhoJM/s640/a7.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>Fi just checking Norrie's properly dressed</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PjWQHbLRoKI/VWTJwSGic_I/AAAAAAAAH7g/csoW82Elb80/s1600/a8.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PjWQHbLRoKI/VWTJwSGic_I/AAAAAAAAH7g/csoW82Elb80/s640/a8.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>A panorama of sidecars</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-YhXHI8-xCCk/VWTJxHnEuXI/AAAAAAAAH7o/zgNglN7zfpg/s1600/a9.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-YhXHI8-xCCk/VWTJxHnEuXI/AAAAAAAAH7o/zgNglN7zfpg/s640/a9.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>The ladies after climbing the mountain</td></tr></tbody></table><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-MprkRZEyKVE/VWTJsusH-RI/AAAAAAAAH64/bpCdpFGLoeM/s1600/a10.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-MprkRZEyKVE/VWTJsusH-RI/AAAAAAAAH64/bpCdpFGLoeM/s640/a10.JPG"/></a></td></tr><tr><td>Edinburgh and its not raining ...superb</td></tr></tbody></table>

Cooking on the road is one of the areas that consumes a lot of mental and real time. It’s easy to initially eat at the road side taco stands or other quick eats, or splurge and be a foody at a hip restaurant in a capitol city.

Challis

Though they traveled the Pan-American on motorbikes, Paul and Camille have joined the Westy-nation. We followed them north to Challis Hot Springs (and no one broke down!) We did have to slow down through a cattle drive. Idaho keeps surprising me. We were happy to finally have some sunshine. And happy to make some more […]

This was one of the days with sunshine. A few days earlier the wind was so strong that this lake had mini water tornadoes rolling across it.

Torres del Paine, Chile

The Tehuelche Indians, Patagonia’s original inhabitants, called the wind Shamej Gooshe, translated as “The Wind Which Goes Round”. Shamej Gooshe was a mythical being who would drag animals and people into his underground liar and kill them. I thought we had met Shamej Gooshe in El Chalten the night the wind kept us up until sunrise. But […]

We verlaten onze mooie camping in Rome en rijden richting de kust naar de Golf van Gaeta. Heerlijk rustig en genietend volgen we deze kustroute en we lunchen op een mooi plekje. Daarna naar Caserta een plaats waar een mooi paleis moet staan, met tuinen die zich kunnen meten aan de tuinen van Versailles. Dit […]

Hoje (24/05/15) foi a vez da correia do alternador arrebentar. Saímos de St. George logo após o café da manhã e estávamos tranquilos pois seriam […]

O ponto mais ao sul da África

Um lugar que tínhamos pulado na nossa passagem pela Garde Route era a cidade de Cape Agulhas, lugar mais ao sul de toda a África. Nosso plano era voltar até lá com meus sogros então reservamos a cidade para ir com eles. Apesar de termos saído de Knysna com o tempo horrível, chegamos a Cape […]

Rainy Costa Rica

As the truck was now in order and our hotel room was becoming much too comfortable, we set off for the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica.  Who could resist the tropical beaches, warm breezes, and fresh seafood?  We were pumped to start the journey. We blasted out of San Jose, only missing one or two […]

Chilly in Chilly

From the moon, we finally started north to go find some friends in Chilly, ID. We cruised through Hailey – nice town – before finding out that Sun Valley and Ketchum are just over-priced resort subdivisions. Kind of a bummer, but we weren’t staying long anyway. From there, we could turn up a road that just […]
