Peru: Battles and Mines

Peru: Battles and Mines

So is it all Incas and llamas in Peru? Well, okay… there are quite a lot of Inca sites and there are quite a few wandering llamas. But there’s other stuff too…. Honest! For our third entry to Peru, we crossed the Brazilian Amazon into the (rather similar looking)...
We Are Still Alive, and We Are Doing Fine! / Ja, wir leben noch, und es geht uns gut!

We Are Still Alive, and We Are Doing Fine! / Ja, wir leben noch, und es geht uns gut!

Dear EarthLoversOnTour-friends, we are still alive, and we are doing fine! We have even finished our ‘Cape Town to Casablanca Tour’ already – well, after 13 months 😉. At present we are back in South Africa. Only by plane and just for a while, yet we are enjoying...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...

Joshua Tree National Park, April 2017.

**Hi there! So I’ve been thinking. My new plan is to blog our current locations and sprinkle in the old international traveling we did throughout Mexico and Canada in 2016 since that never got done. So here we go….** We just got back from another stint in...
L’Anse aux Meadows

L’Anse aux Meadows

This is one of my favorite places. It was a Viking town, with blacksmiths and other things. It was also the first place Europeans ever set foot in North America. There was a tour we went on to show us the city planning and different shops. All the buildings were made...
The wreck of the S.S Ethie

The wreck of the S.S Ethie

After visiting Tablelands, we met up with Mali Mish at the Lobster Cove Lighthouse. It was a really cool lighthouse and there were costumes and games to play with. I remember Luka dressing up in an old girl’s dress and that was really funny.     After...
Four Days in // Mauritania

Four Days in // Mauritania

Although the border crossing into Mauritania had ultimately been easy, but not stress-free, we found ourselves at the end of a long day without a spot to camp. So we did what any self-respecting overlander does, pulled out the iPhone and clicked into iOverlander. The...
Crossing No Man’s Land // Mauritania

Crossing No Man’s Land // Mauritania

Moments after driving through the arch of the Mauritanian border, I burst into tears. We had just made our way across the infamous ‘No Man’s Land’ and found ourselves swarmed by fixers trying to ‘help’ us across the border. The gendarmerie were trying to instruct us...
Zurück in die alte Welt………!

Zurück in die alte Welt………!

Dakar – Hamburg – Fehraltorf   Wir lassen es uns nicht nehmen, Afrika unseren 7. Kontinent den wir auf unserer Reise ansteuern, zu betreten.    Das ist mein erster Aufenthalt in Senegal Afrika.    Dakar die Hauptstadt Senegals liegt auf der...

Vessel-Finder

Hallo von hoher See. Dieses Posting ist vordatiert, damit es hier nicht gar so einsam wird. Wir schippern gerade irgendwo im Atlantik umher. Wenn der Zeitplan stimmt, dann haben wir inzwischen Dakar im Senegal hinter uns gelassen und mit etwas Glück noch keine...
Bilderbuch Freetown

Bilderbuch Freetown

Es gibt über Freetown gar nicht so viel zu sagen, weil wir aus Sicherheitsgründen nicht an Land gehen konnten. Es bleiben die Eindrücke dieser unendlichen Armut, der Menschen, die zusammen mit Schweinen am „Strand“ leben, von der dunkelsten Stadt, die wir je gesehen...
Bilderbuch Dakar

Bilderbuch Dakar

Unser Ausflug nach Dakar war dann doch viel kürzer als erwartet. Statt der eineinhalb Tage an Land, war es dann nur knapp ein Abend und zwei Stunden am nächsten Vormittag. Natürlich viel zu kurz, um eine Stadt kennenzulernen. Aber immerhin lang genug, um die Mischung...
Twillingate

Twillingate

As they say –  if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. After camping our first night near Doyle, we started the drive across Newfoundland. First, we made a quick detour to Corner Brook for sushi and to donate Bode’s old bike that...
Meat Cove

Meat Cove

Several people had recommended this campsite to us, but Dave got here first and posted a photo on Instagram that led us to skip most of the sites on the East side of Cape Breton and head straight for Meat Cove. Somehow, Bode convinced her parents to let Ava ride with...
Red Point

Red Point

Like nearly everywhere we’ve been on the East Coast this summer, Prince Edward Island is jam packed with campers. We made it to Red Point Provincial Park, but had to park in the overflow area for the night. It worked out great for us, as it was a big grassy...
Bay of FUNdy

Bay of FUNdy

A little more than a week ago we made a plan to meet up with fellow traveling families, Adv-o-DnA and Mali Mish. We’d met both last year on our travels to Alaska and were looking forward to catching up with them since we decided to head North instead of South...
Banos

Banos

Banos is a very busy town, I would say brushing the tourist trap description. So let’s see, we have the medieval church in city centre, the crowd on the streets, tour companies/adventure tours about every 100 feet offering zip lines (called canopy around here),...
