Mexico – Yucatan to Oaxaca

< ?xml version="1.0"?> After our two weeks in Cuba we need some rest and drive once again to the nice campground in Xpu-Ha close to Tulum. This is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy ourselves at the Caribbean beach. We meet a few other couples from Germany and spend...

Cuba

< ?xml version="1.0"?> When Columbus reached Cuba in 1492 the first time he obviously did not know that some centuries later shortly after the visit from Barack Obama and the Rolling Stones also „Die Ausreiser“ visit Cuba. It`s not very likely that we come...

Kuba

< ?xml version="1.0"?> Als Kolumbus 1492 erstmals in Kuba vor Anker ging ahnte er sicher noch nicht, dass einige Jahrhunderte später, kurz nach dem Besuch von Obama und den Rolling Stones, auch die Ausreiser die Insel besuchen. Wir denken, dass wir so nah wohl...

With some time on our hands….

While waiting for the transmission to get finished we found ourselves with some time on our hands. So we started researching places we could go. We looked specifically at places that we would not be able to ship or drive to. Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the elusive Cuba...

Headed for the April Sun in Cuba

Headed for the April Sun in Cuba

The sun was low in the sky as we roared away from the airport in a taxi. Soon we were darting through traffic in the streets of Havana. Decrepit vehicles from a bygone era belched toxic fumes through the open windows. The roar of ancient motorcycle engines filled our...

IMAGES FROM A CUBAN ROAD TRIP

If a country is to be judged by the vehicles its citizens drive then Cuba is truly a complex society. 1950s Chevys, Fords, Buicks and Pontiacs cram the boulevards of Havana. Along the Malecon cruise Soviet-era jeeps, Moskvitch cars and Ural motorcycles. Throughout the...

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ERNEST

ERNEST HEMINGWAY AT FINCA VIGIA, HIS HOME OUTSIDE HAVANA. What’s in a name you might ponder? Well, to be someone really important in Cuba it’s a big advantage if you’re called Ernest. Restaurants, hotels and bars the world over claim Ernest...
