Vulkanwahnsinn

  In Guatemala, speziell in und nach der Zeit um Antigua, überkam uns ein regelrechter und wortwörtlicher Vulkanwahnsinn. Innerhalb von 8 Wochen haben wir 4 der schönsten und höchsten Vulkane Guatemalas besteigen können. Wenn möglich immer ohne Tour, nur wir und...
A Culinary Conundrum in Guatemala

A Culinary Conundrum in Guatemala

Life at Lake Atitlan involves a lot of great food. Life in San Marcos la Laguna involves a lot of vegetables. This is not a problem for us as we eat vegetarian at least half of the time. However, after months of street tacos, vegetables and chicken being our main diet...

Leaving Asheville

Leaving Asheville

  Well, I am quickly approaching the end of my stay here in Asheville. I have to say, this is one cool town with big city amenities and an earthy organic core. Since, I am essentially looking for a business to buy, and will remain an absentee owner, price does...
Yaxha

Yaxha

Close to the famous Tikal ruins in Guatemala lie the lesser-known Mayan site of Yaxhá. Despite being only 30km as the quetzal flies from its famous neighbour, the drive is a little longer. As a result far fewer tourists make the journey to explore these amazing ruins....

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...
