Brazilian drivers are crazy!

Brazilians, in general, are lovely people. I actually think that they might be about the friendliest people in the world. BUT, put them behind of the wheel of a motor vehicle and they think they’re Airton Senna (famous Brazilian race car driver).To put…

Long days of travel

Finding overnight overland stops, or camps, in Brazil.  I think I’ve mentioned before that an unfortunate thing about overlanding in Brazil is the distances between attractions. It can be several long days of bad roads and too much traffic before you reach your next ‘Brazilian attraction’. And, along the way, there’ll be no official camping […]

Chachapoyas and Kuelap, Peru

Chachapoyas is a lovely colonial-style town. The central plaza has lots of tour companies, cafes and shops.  I see a few gringos out and about, but mostly it’s locals, maybe because it’s the off-season now. We are back up in… Read More ›

Onboard Shower

Oh yeah! Hot water at the touch of a button—or rather the attaching of alligator clamps… and a 15min wait for the car to warm up. One of the creature comforts we have decided we cannot do without, is the ability to have regular hot showers. This is not only because we like to be clean, […]

Watch this space

So in a couple of weeks we set off on a mini adventure to tour the North of Thailand in South East Asia, this one is only 3 weeks long and we have rented bikes out there. Plenty opportunities to explore and see cool things. We are renting ER6 Kawasaki’…

One day in our Colombian life

It is a Sunday in October. Back home the leaves are turning into beautiful colors in homage to the Autumn season. Kids are getting ready for Halloween and are preparing their Halloween costumes. Oh how I miss Fall! We have been on the road for nearly 16 months. Currently we are renting an efficiency apartment […]

Guatemala 2.0: The Extended Stay

Hey Adventurers! I sure hope you enjoyed our ‘year on the road’ posts as much as My Family and I loved putting them together. It’s been quite the journey so far, but it’s also far from over. We celebrated our year travel-versary in Guatemala, and I just realized I haven’t yet told you about our […]

Galapagos Islands- To cruise or not to cruise

There are two ways to see the Galapagos islands, by organized cruise or independent travel island by island (or I guess a combo of both is possible). Almost everyone who goes does organized cruises, and trying to find information on how to experience the islands without booking a cruise is difficult. There is not much […]

Stuck in the desert

Facts: 1. A river has two banks 2. From Dongola to Wadi Halfa along the Nile is approximately 400 km 3. There’s a new road from Dongola to Wadi Halfa 4. After Dongola there’s no bridge to cross the Nile So far so good. The Bradt Guide says: Heading north, the journey is dramatically improved […]

The prisoners spent long hours mining Limestone creating the unique lunar landscape that surrounds the prison today. Once left to ruin, the quarry and half of the prison flooded meaning that today, the area is half Soviet Gulag, half…

One border, two extremes: from Ethiopia to Sudan

Just your ordinary border crossing. I leave the Ethiopian highlands and descend into a completely different world. Of course there’s the heat: Sudan must be one of the hottest countries on the continent. After the cool breeze of the mountains the heat hits you like the flames of purgatory. Under these climatic conditions a border […]

From the border of Peru to Chachapoyas

After crossing the border we head for the town of San Ignacio before stopping for the night. We wind up staying at a small hotel and parking our bikes in a private garage behind the hotel. It’s a little unnerving… Read More ›

Een goed geloof en een kurken ziel dan drijft men de zee over

De MSC Rita is onderweg, Ton is gelukkig weer aan de beterende hand en wij staan op Schiphol. Na een bewogen week waarin aanvankelijk de schrik en bezorgdheid de overhand hadden, stappen we zo met een gerust hart het vliegtuig in. We zullen de nacht doorbrengen in een dodgy hoekje op Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in […]

Het wilde zuiden

Na een leuke tijd in Zambia, trekken we weer verder en steken we vandaag bij de Victoriawatervallen de grens over naar Zimbabwe. Na het afronden van de grensformaliteiten aan de Zambiaanse kant rijden we via de oude spoorbrug over de gorge naar het buurland. Vanaf de brug vangen we nog net een glimp op van […]

The road to Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina [by Paula] The urge to just get ‘there’ – wherever there may be – is not something with which the slow traveller is familiar. Whilst most of us have goals and destinations in mind, the desire to arrive has to be resisted, or else you’re not really going to appreciate the things […]

2 Arizona weeks = 28 days

On the road again (or soon to be…). I’ll betcha you thought we’d never get going again! After all, it’s been just about a full month since we dropped anchor here in Arizona. Perfectly in line with our scheduled 2 weeks stop! Being jobless; Priceless. Our latest try at a doable schedule puts us back […]

Bergen’s Wooden Homes and the Quiet of Fuglsetfjord

Our moonshine friends are still fast asleep and, after crawling from the frost-covered tent, we hurry to pack. The morning air is brisk and once again the bikes protest the chill. The Shorai batteries have protested at any temperature close to freezing all along our journey and the extra strain on the starter always puts […]
