PEI and Bus Pie

PEI and Bus Pie

An exhaust leak that Jason had tried to fix with inferior parts earlier in the week didn’t hold, and we were in desperate need of a muffler seal fix. The sputtering was getting pretty loud. Jason had done some Facebook searching and was able to connect with Mark...
Grand Manan

Grand Manan

We spent 3 days exploring the island and camping on the coasts. The island is quiet – really quiet. Tea time seems to be a major event in most towns. The Eastern side is more open and has sand beaches and a Provencial Park. It’s the more populated area and...
Loonies and Toonies

Loonies and Toonies

While in Maine, we finally cracked open our guidebook for Canada. Still, we had to hit the final Junior Ranger badge in the U.S. at St. Croix before crossing over. This might be the least-visited National Historic Site in the U.S. and possibly the most thorough ranger...
Canadá pa’l Norte

Canadá pa’l Norte

For the English version see below Canadá es un país que teníamos muchas ganas de conocer. Sin haber visto demasiadas fotos ya nos imaginábamos cómo podía ser: montañas gigantes, millones de pinos y lagos por doquier. No nos equivocamos. La naturaleza de este gran país...
TELEGRAPH CREEK

TELEGRAPH CREEK

Why are we drawn along some roads and not others, especially this one,  a 112 kilometre dirt track petering out at an abandoned town, beside a fast, broad river running out of the Stikine Ranges? The writer Edward Hoagland came to Telegraph Creek in 1966, more or less...
You

You

You know I’m really not the “7 best things to do in Ecuador” type of blogger. There are lots of small stories coming along while traveling. Today was no exception. I flip flopped the idea to write or not about some things, but it happened while...
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...
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...
Cajas

Cajas

Cajas National Park, is about 30 km west of Cuenca, but we drove at least an hour to get there. Cuenca looks like a construction zone these days, which means they dug up a bunch of roads and sometime in the future, who knows when, eventually they will be functional...
Peggy’s Cove und ein Getriebeschaden

Peggy’s Cove und ein Getriebeschaden

Nachdem wir das Auto vor ca. einem Monat in Hamburg abgegeben hatten waren wir nun endlich wieder vereint und fuhren auf direktem Weg zu unserer Airbnb Unterkunft, um unsere Sachen abzuholen. Die Rucksäcke wurden einfach hinten reingeschmissen, wir wollten weiter,...
Panama

Panama

Panama means the end of the North American continent. There are two Americas, North and South, Central America is not a continent, it’s a geopolitical division. Panama can be frustrating and it turned out to be expensive. The convenience of US $ is not as...
CANADA: THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

CANADA: THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

The scream of the reel is electrifying. The rod bends double, the tip almost piercing the swell. ‘You got a strike,’ yells Ryan. Stumbling across the deck I wrestle the rod from the downrigger. Whatever’s on the end has already hit warp-speed. The...
Lets get out of the heat of Arizona…..

Lets get out of the heat of Arizona…..

We left Arizona bound for cooler climates.  Anywhere north that would offer us a reprieve from the heat, with unknown destinations in mind.  Ultimately we hope to get to Canada for a while. So we finished the tasks on the van and loaded her up with three dogs, two...
