DIY Motorhome: Electrics

Our house is off-grid! By this I mean that since we started travelling in Blu we haven’t had to plug it into a main power supply (although we can). Our solar panels and battery have so far proven to be enough! Despite having electric machines for coffee,...

Recently, I added two countries to the countries I have visited. My daughter, Chrissy, and I took a girls trip to Tokyo, Japan, with a long layover in Beijing, China. For this trip, I let her do the planning. I figured this would be her time to stretch her legs for a...

  Here is the main difference between backpacking and overlanding, schedule. With the car we pretty much had complete freedom of movement, WE decided how long we wanted to stay in each place and what time we should leave. None of the waking up at the crack of dawn...

Korea – A Turn For The Unexpected

After getting passed the equator it was time to start thinking about our planned “gap” in the trip. I had agreed to join Ross with the caveat that I needed to go on a North American wedding tour in July and this seemed to correspond with Ross’s need to renew health...

China – 3G internet howto

We overstayed Panama roughly with 30 days. It was an interesting time period with lots of sweat and nerves, filled with paperwork and uncertainty. With all that there was plenty to lay the camera lens on, actually more than I expected. Panama is a beautiful country,...

The Arrivals

It’s the people you miss. The trade-off for a life lived out in the world is that you leave behind those you care about. That twinge of sadness at the idea of missing out on all those celebrations and camping trips and dinners out. Luckily for us, the arrivals...

A Grande Muralha da China

Ousadia não faltou aos chineses quando resolveram, há mais de 2.200 anos atrás, proteger seu território e império de grupos nômades das estepes euroasiáticas. Qin Shi Huang, o primeiro imperador chinês, que já havia sido muito arrojado quando demandou a construção de...
