Argentina – East Coast III

Playas Doradas [[After the crazy long drives on long and quite boring roads of eastern Argentina, we needed a place to stay and rest for a while. We checked the map and a small place called Playas Doradas caught our eye – it means golden beaches :) So we drove...
Is Arequipa the Most Beautiful City in Peru?

Is Arequipa the Most Beautiful City in Peru?

Our three visits to Arequipa are almost not enough. This city prompts the use of descriptions such as ‘Peru’s pride and beauty’, ‘picturesque’, ‘graceful and harmonious’, ‘prettiest’ and of course ‘beautiful’. The main reason for the city’s appeal is that its...

Time to trade in that cushy graphic design job for a job unloading trucks in Guatemala. Our cross-country journey was going well. Possibly too well. The roads were much better than our previous trip across Guatemala. It looked like we might be able to get to a very...
Our weekend with Adonis (Costa Rica)

Our weekend with Adonis (Costa Rica)

Costa Rica Some people seem to love it and others tend to bull run through it.  It’s expensive, over toured, and in my mind, overrated.   For us, bull running was our only thought as we had other places we were more interested in.  We both had spent time in Costa Rica...
Volunteering Abroad ~ Guatemala

Volunteering Abroad ~ Guatemala

We knew that when we headed out for a life on the road that we wanted to spend time volunteering in the places we explored. We had done a variety of volunteer work back in Oregon from Habitat to Humanity to Fences for Fidos to cooking for the families at the Ronald...

No entiendo nada

Wir waren zu schnell, hat er gesagt. Wir sind über die Linie gefahren, hat er dann gesagt. Und Schlangenlinien sind wir gefahren, hat er auch gesagt. Und eine 200$-Strafe hätte er jetzt verhängt, hat er gesagt. Nur, wir haben nichts verstanden. Der Google Übersetzer...

Argentina – East Coast II

Gaiman [[Gaiman – a small city with non-argentinian sounding name (I immediately thought of Neil Gaiman), was created in 19th century by welsh immigrants and it definitely influenced the local architecture and feeling of the city. You can walk around the town...
Rest stop

Rest stop

We entered Colombia from Ecuador on August 28, 2016. After a few days of driving I was convinced that we will be out from here in about a month. I think the main thing what ticked me off was the road tolls, which can be quite high in Colombia, the fairly high price of...

Cabaña Suiza, unglaublich hilfreiche und overlander-freundliche Schweizer Familie.   Nachdem wir uns mit aller Gemütlichkeit langsam durch das wunderschöne Guatemala bewegten, hiess es nun endlich auch mal wieder aktiv zu werden. Geistig aktiv um es genauer zu sagen....

Little Falls, Big Falls

Argentina has its finger stuck between Paraguay and Brazil. Yes, really! Look on the map… there’s long, narrow, finger-like, sticky-up bit in the far north-east of Argentina: Misiones province. We crossed into Argentina from Paraguay at the bottom of the finger...

Out of the Ordinary: Travelling with Family in Peru

It’s exciting when close friends or family members want to come and visit us on our overland journey. They want a taste of our life – to share our day to day experiences. It’s not always easy to work out how best to do this in a limited time, but we have managed it...

What a great life we lead! We slept in a bit this morning after the fun of the 2nd annual La Ventana hot dog crawl and a few too many cocktails. The sun was peeking its way over the horizon on the Sea of Cortez and it was just chilly enough to really enjoy our cup of...
Paraguay

Paraguay

The Chaco… a chuffing big, flat plain stretching east from the Andes. Covering eastern Bolivia, north-east Argentina, a bit of south-west Brazil and much of Paraguay… it’s big. After the descent from the Bolivian altiplano, it’s a long, long, straight road reaching...
