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),...
More Texas Projects

More Texas Projects

We drove back to Texas to wrap up a few more bus projects, a few more doctor visits and a little more time with friends and family. The bus list is endless, but there was one major goal that wasn’t on the bus list: get dad’s convertible running and take it...
Namibia 3, Etosha NP!

Namibia 3, Etosha NP!

We headed into Grootfontein where we could stock up on supplies and finally buy Rob a cheap phone as he had lost his in Senegal. It was about time he got one and they had a good one on offer. Grootfontein seemed like a really nice town, but we didn’t hang around...
Italy

Italy

3/1999 & 12/2009 & 11/2010 Italy has been a getaway for me for almost all of my trips to Europe or West Africa. So I have visited this beautiful country more than four times. However I have managed to cover a different part every time. In 1999 I covered North...
6th Wedding – Córdoba, Argentina

6th Wedding – Córdoba, Argentina

[[The story of this wedding of Juan and Belén started humble – we had some problems finding a wedding in Argentina, because it was already April, the fall was coming and temperatures dropped together with the wedding season. We sent 45 e-mails to different...
Nigeria & Cameroon

Nigeria & Cameroon

​Before leaving Nigeria, after receiving our Cameroonian visas at the extremely efficient Calabar consulate, there was one place we had heard of that we wanted to visit – the Drill Sanctuary. Drills are one of the most endangered primates in Africa, and...
