Colonial hangover

Colonial hangover

Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Driving into a new country you inevitably find yourself comparing it to the one you have just left. What’s different? What’s the same? Is the food (or more importantly, the beer) any better or worse? We really enjoyed our time in Suriname with the drone and the jungle...
Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Visiting Patzcuaro felt a little bit like camping at a farm! The place we chose to stay had a wide variety of farm animals roaming free on the large property. The location was beautiful, on a grassy hill above the city. We had sweeping lake views and big shady trees...
Getting close

Getting close

While in case of events I prefer long lens with cropped frame camera, in tight spaces it might help to have an extra setup. In my case that’s 16-35 mm on full frame. You are close, very close to the action, basically breathing down their neck so to say,...

Can we keep her?

Can we keep her?

The day dawned clear and cool. We awoke to clear skies above our camp spot at the foot of the volcano. We could now tick: ☑ Watch one volcano erupt from the summit of another off our list. Ok. Technically there was no actual list. But if there were. That one would now...

Tula-

Tula-

When we finally left San Juan Teotihuacan, we didn’t go far. Just a short drive away is the archeological site of Tula in the town of Tula de Allende. It is often overlooked, because Teotihuacan is so popular. But we wanted to take the time to look at the Toltec...

Amazonia – die Lümmel von der ersten Bank

  Schul-Leben Das Volunteering (unsere eigentliche Aufgabe hier, NICHT das ganze Chicha-Getrinke des letzten Eintrags) gestaltete sich sehr interessant. Jeden Tag haben wir von 7.30 bis 10.00 Uhr eine Klasse. Mal im Alter von 5-7, mal von 8-11 und mal von 12-18. Dabei...
Moto & Drone

Moto & Drone

We are often asked how we use the little motorcycles that we carry on the front of MogTug.  They have proven awesome little adventure machines, helping us with everything from getting groceries, to scouting a dirt road before busting through with MogTug. One random...
And try again

And try again

A little over a week after our first miserable failure. We were back, climbing Volcán Acatenango… again. Outside Juan’s home, we filled our day packs with our warmest gear and snacks. An afternoon wander only. No camping in the cold this time. The dry ground...
