Deutsch. Jawoll mein Herr!

Unser Blog wird (ein Stueck weit) Deutscher. Mal schauen was daraus wird. Aber lasst mich erstmal unserer englischsprachigen Freunden erklaeren was hier gerade vor sich geht, bevor ich die deutsche Sprache vergewaltige um unsere Reiseabenteuer Tipp-, Satzbau-, Fall-...

Novitec Megapulse, hero of dead batteries (or not?)

As you might know we have a little problem. A little big problem – because our leisure batteries are more or less dud. Fuck, that’s gonna be expensive… or? After being slightly shocked after testing the first battery which I suspected to be mostly...

… but the batteries are

At the moment I have a serious matter on the table. I was wondering why the batteries seem such a lousy capacity lately and at first suspected that the solar system doesn’t load sufficiently due to too much heat on the rood of the car, which influences the...

No the climate control project isn’t dead..

But after Chiang Mai and leaving the cosy flat, I found other bits and pieces on the car that needed attention first. So while spending time on beautiful Koh Chang I build several things for the car, like propper frames with mosquito nets for the rear windows, a new...

DIY camper air condition: parts picture

A quick update on the camper air condition I’m building. Because of beeing ill, I didn’t get around yet to actually build it, but most of the parts arrived in the meanwhile. So I thought it might be nice to take a picture of what looks like geek-christmas....

3G router – ZTE MF60 .. or ZTE MF65M and more solar power

As time goes by and the mid of October is coming closer by when we most likely leave Chiang Mai, we started to think about our mobile life again. Elton is having a well deserved rest in the parking lot of our Condo at the moment, but in a little more then one month he...

Monthly living costs in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I know, such posts can be a bit dull at times, but when preparing an extended trip or to live abroad this information  can come in handy. As we are in Chiang Mai now for about one and a half months we are not the complete authority, but we start to get a picture. With...

Chiang Mai – welcome to the digital nomad capitol

Remember the post I wrote some time ago? The Don’t plan too much ahead one? Well, I think our experience in Chiang Mai is a good example for what I wrote back then. Our original plan (find the mistake) was to drive all the way along the border of Thailand first to the...

China – 3G internet howto

Digital nomading while overlanding in China is a whole challenge of its own regarding the Internet censorship, aka the Great Firewall, and to make it even more challenging there is an expensive pitfall regarding the selection of the right mobile network operator for...

The calm butterfly

or “Yeah I am finally a Disney Princess” While walking through the hallway in our current apartment building I saw a beautiful butterfly on the wall struggling to find a save place to land, so I offered my hand and voila I was adopted immediately. Well the...

Across the Universe

Short review of Across the Universe – a movie I will definitely watch again.   Sometimes a rainy Sunday has its perks. Just saw a fantastic movie with an even better soundtrack. If you like the 60ies and their sound watch it. You won’t regret it....

The Sapphires

A great movie about an Aboriginal soul group of 4 women who performed in front of American soldiers in the Vietnam War. Amazing voices, great songs, a lot of inspiration and most of all SOUL All rights on the pictures belong to Screen Australia,  Goalpost Film and the...

Cherng Doi Roast Chicken – Chiang Mai

We ate in this small restaurant yesterday evening.  You get a picture menu (no dinner roulette)  and fill out an order sheet.   The maidishes are OK but a little small so don’t forget to order rice and maybe a salad. But be aware the salads are great but...

Ex Machina

We just saw Ex Machina in our hotel room in Thailand, a surprisingly good movie. We already started to watch it a while ago at another occassion but somehow  weren’t in the mood for it back then. This time we were in the mood for it (going out beforehand maybe...

Not a travel blog

Somehow I’m not happy with our blog as it is at the moment. I think we started it off somewhat wrong or we went through some development along the way – I have no idea. Somehow I never really  get around to write about the things  I really want to tell,...

Cambodia, from Koh Kong to Kampot

After our action filled arrival we were looking out for a more laid back, relaxed way of travelling. Thats one of the main reasons why we bought Elton – on the one hand the Voyager had some faults, especially in the cooling system, on the other hand we just...

Don’t plan too much ahead

Don’t plan too much ahead If there is one most important advice, the one advice I’d want to give each and every traveller to be, then it is: Don’t plan too much ahead. Its way more easy said then done. Travelling means freedom – especially when you set out to travel...

Cambodia – fighting for the border

We’ve been to Cambodia twice up until now. While we didn’t see much during the first visit, as we just stayed in the Koh Kong Area as Andrea was ill at first and afterwards we worked a lot, this visit was quite nice and brought us to Sianoukhville, Kep, Kampot, Cheung...
