Green desert

Green desert

Although we are basically in a desert(ish) place, at least that’s how it looked 6-7 months ago when we were here before we crossed to Colombia, now it’s all green. It rains cats and dogs lately and the area has turned into a green desert. Blaze has some...
Better Stop for the Captivating Museums in Lambayeque

Better Stop for the Captivating Museums in Lambayeque

We meet so many overlanders who drive the Pan-American Highway, and pass straight through Lambayeque, unaware of what this region has to offer. On the other hand, we purposely returned to Lambayeque because we remembered (from our last trip ) the captivating museums...

Conquering Fears With A New Sport

Conquering Fears With A New Sport

During our recent adventures with Trent and Michelle in Moab, Trent unknowingly convinced us that our longtime dream to outdoor rock climb should/could be realized. Trent is an extremely accomplished, yet humble, climber. He solo aid-climbed a 2000 ft wall...
Hot market, cold feet

Hot market, cold feet

We put an offer down on a commercial property and are currently under contract. Sometimes it felt as if I was at a bidding war, and reminded me of a time, not too long ago, when all common sense was lost in the real estate market. I was apprehensive at times, and...

Canon 70-200 F2.8L surgery

I the past few weeks my Canon 70-200 F2.8L felt somewhat strange then it became more and more obvious that is sick. The lens elements became loose. The front element above the focus ring and in the middle, just below the focus ring. The general feel was that the lens...

Post No.480

With quite a few blog posts and thousands of photos uploaded already sometimes I have no clue how to name a new blog post. Obviously people will look at the photos and maybe read a line or two. How about I just name the blog posts by their number? This is Post No.480....
Monster Turtles and Rockets

Monster Turtles and Rockets

There are turtles and there are giant leather-back turtles. And then there are space rockets. An odd combination, but in French Guiana we’re lucky enough see both in the same week. The end of our last blog featured a cliff-hanger, waiting to see whether our...

Slot Canyons in Southern Utah

Utah is one of our favorite states for outdoor recreation and natural beauty. After 10 days of incredible mountain biking in Moab (which deserves all the hype it gets), we headed to the canyons of Utah in and around Capitol Reef National Park and Escalante National...

Joshua Tree National Park, April 2017.

**Hi there! So I’ve been thinking. My new plan is to blog our current locations and sprinkle in the old international traveling we did throughout Mexico and Canada in 2016 since that never got done. So here we go….** We just got back from another stint in...
Nicaragua

Nicaragua

  Nach unserer Blitz-Durchreise von Honduras, die uns ganze 3 Stunden, inklusive Fussballgucken in einer Tankstelle, gekostet hatte, haben wir für Nicaragua nun knappe 3 Wochen Zeit. Auch nicht unbedingt super viel, aber ausreichend fürs Erste.   Somoto...

San Antonio

San Antonio

San Antonio, I wonder how many places are carrying this name. Probably at least one per each Latin American country. There are at least two in Ecuador San Antonio de Pichincha and San Antonio de Ibarra. Just few minutes driving from Ibarra is this sleepy town which is...
The Countdown

The Countdown

For a multitude of reasons, none of which are even remotely tethered to a desire to stop travelling or depart from our new life on the road, we’d made the decision a couple of months ago to head back to Australia! Sadly South America will have to wait a little longer…...
