Amazon-ing Overlanding

The Amazon: awesome, exciting, wildlife, adventure, river eco-zone? Or hot, humid, over-bearing, mud-ridden, insect-infested swamp? The Amazon jungle has been all of these things to us (and more) over the last few months. With highs and lows. Most recently we cut...
Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Driving into a new country you inevitably find yourself comparing it to the one you have just left. What’s different? What’s the same? Is the food (or more importantly, the beer) any better or worse? We really enjoyed our time in Suriname with the drone and the jungle...

Owru Yari, Happy New Year!

Owru Yari, Happy New Year!

Suriname’s capital, Paramaribo, has apparently been listed as one of the top places in the world to celebrate New Years. Actually, it seems they don’t really celebrate New Years in such a big way, but they celebrate the old year, and this is what...
The Big Durian

The Big Durian

Getting to Jakarta seemed like a fairly straightforward ride, and generally it was.  Decent traffic, some pleasant detours, and a dash of deja-vu. Along one country road that paralleled a canal I was thinking about how Dutch the scene seemed (not surprising...
