Moto & Drone

We are often asked how we use the little motorcycles that we carry on the front of MogTug.  They have proven awesome little adventure machines, helping us with everything from getting groceries, to scouting a dirt road before busting through with MogTug. One random...
And try again

And try again

A little over a week after our first miserable failure. We were back, climbing Volcán Acatenango… again. Outside Juan’s home, we filled our day packs with our warmest gear and snacks. An afternoon wander only. No camping in the cold this time. The dry ground...
Overlanding La Selva, Peru’s Enormous Amazon Rainforest

Overlanding La Selva, Peru’s Enormous Amazon Rainforest

La Selva, literally translated ‘the forest’, means the Amazon rainforest to Peruvians. This is an enormous part of Peru, covering around a 60% of the country, but not many travellers go there. La Selva is also not really that suitable for overland travel,...
Toacaso, outside the arena

Toacaso, outside the arena

Yesterday I posted photos of what happens in the rodeo ring. Today we look at photos taken outside the arena. This is one of those events in Ecuador I warmly recommend visiting before it vanishes away and the ATV’s take over here too.        ...
Toacaso, arena action

Toacaso, arena action

A third visit to a chagra event took place at the high altitude small town of Toacaso, Cotopaxi, at about 3,100 meters altitude. When we arrived it was absolutely stunning sunny weather which later on turned into a rainy day. The setup pretty much the same, chagras,...

The other side of the Andes

The other side of the Andes

We rolled down to the other side of the Andes. Drove up to Nueva Loja, practically 20 km from the Colombian border, then down to Coca, Loreto, Archidona, Tena and Puerto Misahualli. Hot, hot, hot weather, the highest we touched was 44 C. This is where the Ecuadorian...

Sinchi Warmi

Sinchi Warmi

We stayed two nights at Sinchi Warmi lodge by Misahualli. A very nice place ran by indigenous families, well organized and very clean. The only thing missing is wifi at this place, everything else is great. Watch for bug bites though!       The post...
Take a break

Take a break

Your birthday excursion up a volcano didn’t go quite according to plan? You can’t really be too disappointed when one of the first things you see when you roll back in to town is a lady selling assorted pastries out of the back of her car. With a face full...
Amazonia – ein Traum wird war

Amazonia – ein Traum wird war

  Kaum zu glauben, dass wir uns diesen Traum erfüllen konnten. Ein Traum, der weniger auf meiner offiziellen Löffelliste als mehr in meinen Träumen existierte. Ein Traumtraum quasi. Als Kind verlor man sich oft in den grünen unheimlichen Weiten des Duschungelbuchs,...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...

Machachi

I was really enchanted with my last series of ‘chagra’ in Ecuador, so I decided to visit another competition and shoot a new series of photos. I think the photos talk for themselves.       The post Machachi appeared first on BARNA...
