Vacationing in BC!

Vacationing in BC!

We have parked the bikes for 2 weeks near to Venice and are headed home to Vancouver for Sara’s brother Ben’s wedding this weekend. The 11 hours of flying and the arriving at what was about 5 am Venice time with no sleep made a mess of us. Luckily we had a day to...
Around Quilotoa

Around Quilotoa

The temperature dipped fast after sunset and next day woke up to 3C, which was just enough to reach for a down jacked. At 3,880 meters altitude even at the tropics is freezing. To have an idea, I slept 74 meters shy from the top of Mount Robson or 262 higher than the...
The Key to Happiness

The Key to Happiness

“Uno burrito pollo, por favor… para llevar”. I take a seat at the counter, placing my order in halting Spanish, knowing that in mere days I will once again be leaving the tourist hot spot of Puerto Vallarta to head away from the land of the gringo....
Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks

Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks

Yellowstone was utter madness. After the relative peace and tranquility of Grand Teton, Yellowstone was like stepping in to nature’s (or the NPS’) version of Disneyland. The Majority of our Yellowstone Experience Don’t get me wrong, the static mixture of vast pine...
Heating Up In The California Desert

Heating Up In The California Desert

While slowly driving towards our happy place in Baja, we hit Mojave National Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park in the Mojave desert of California. You would not want to visit these hot, dry places in the summer – we were even pushing it visiting them at the...
Mexico, Jalisco

Mexico, Jalisco

After celebrating our birthdays in the resort town of Puerto Vallarta we drove through the mountains and crossed into the state of Jalisco on February 25, 2016. When we started planning our trip to Mexico we contacted our friend John who is originally from Scotland...
Canada- Eastern BC 2016

Canada- Eastern BC 2016

We crossed the border at Roosville out of Montana. It was a simple crossing with a few basic questions: How long will you be in Canada? Where are you going? I see you have dogs; I assume they are current on vaccinations? Do you have any fruits or vegetables? Do you...
Mexico (5) – Mexico-City

Mexico (5) – Mexico-City

< ?xml version="1.0"?> At the RV Park in Topozotlan we prepare MOMO for a two months break. The village is a nice colonial town  35km north of Mexico-City.  In between the cleaning actvities we take our time to visit the city center with the lovely church...
Hiking In The Grand Tetons.

Hiking In The Grand Tetons.

The Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are essentially one. Nestled in the vast surrounding forests of Wyoming, Yellowstone represents the best known and most visited national park in the USA, with most visits to Grand Teton being somewhat of a tag alog. Teton...
USA: California, lo más de lo más

USA: California, lo más de lo más

For the English version see below ¿En dónde nos quedamos? Ah sí, en Las Vegas. Pero lo que hicimos ahí ya se los contamos en la nota anterior. Desde Las Vegas nos fuimos de vacaciones por 10 días a Miami. Ya sé lo que están pensando: “¿vacaciones? Pero si ustedes...
Food in Ecuador

Food in Ecuador

Food in Ecuador so far is the most affordable of all places I have been, even lower price than in Mexico. It seems that vegetarianism is not a huge thing generally speaking. Supermarkets are expensive but regular street markets are more than affordable. So far the...
My A.T. Playlist

My A.T. Playlist

Heather In case you haven’t noticed we suck at blogging from the trail, let’s just say the app sucks and we are tired at night and we are in the wilderness a lot. Plus we truly do the same thing day in and day out, which is walk in the woods. So here are a...
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),...
Whats Next?

Whats Next?

Our time in Puerto Vallarta is quickly coming to an end. As ever, I am a bit in awe of just how quickly time can pass us by. Three months. It sounds like such a long time to spend in a city that we have only granted one week stays in the past. Time flys by in a...
Penas Blancas border crossing

Penas Blancas border crossing

This is Mike…Well we finally had to extend our tourist visa as 90 days was upon us already. We did, like the thousands of others do, and crossed Nicaragua’s southern border with Costa Rica at the Penas Blancas check point. This time was different than past...
