A história dessa canoa começou quando ainda planejávamos nossa viagem há dois anos atrás…

Buscávamos informações via internet e um dia a Michelle achou um website chamado www.brazil9000.com, que se referia a uma expedição de um americano e um inglês no Brasil. Eles faziam uma viagem do extremo norte ao extremo sul do país utilizando primeiramente um barco,...

Unser Südengland Roadtrip – Überblick

2 Wochen in Dorset, Devon und Cornwall Unsere erste Testfahrt mit unserem Land Cruiser führte uns diesen Juli nach Südengland. Monatelang hatten wir eigentlich immer von Norwegen gesprochen und die für den Urlaub geplanten Zeit wurde immer weniger. Anstatt der anfangs...
Finland

Finland

Today we leave Norway after 3 weeks of mostly ok weather. However, it rained almost all day. We made for the border of Finland in 55 Km. The roads here are very straight and all you see are trees, lakes, and reindeer. The plan was to make some miles and the roads made...
Velkommen til Norge

Velkommen til Norge

We rijden bij Tana Bru Noorwegen in. We zijn zo ver mogelijk naar het Westen gereden en nu gaan we met een smalle route langs de fjorden rijden. We rijden van Torhop  naar Lakselv. We zijn blij dat we deze route hebben genomen ook al was het behoorlijk om. We...
Berlin and Beyond

Berlin and Beyond

Before I get into this update, I realised that “Tales from the Fjords” lacked one anecdote that we thought was worth a mention. Whilst wild-camping in Norway is well accepted, it seems some locals felt that our presence with Erik and Mieke in the forest on one...

Ride to the Arctic – Stage 2

Stage 2: Stavanger to Trondheim (via Bergen) This is the part of the journey that I have been the most excited about since I learnt of the fjords and it doesn’t disappoint. Everything that has been said of Norway, whether it’s ‘Motorcyclist’s...

Tales from the Fjords

Tales from the Fjords

Watching Denmark slip away as the ferry departed for Norway, you could have been forgiven for mistakenly thinking you were off the South West coast of Western Australia – long stretches of beach sand with low scrubby vegetation sporting all the same greyish salt...
Rather have a Panda than a Prince!

Rather have a Panda than a Prince!

Back in 2008, a group of us ventured into the central deserts of Western Australia for a couple of weeks of solitude! Well not quite solitude as Jen and I were providing the support vehicles for 3 friends on KTM motorbikes as they bonded with each other (boys will be...
Heading north towards Oman

Heading north towards Oman

When I woke his morning, I was reminded of the last time we spent New Year’s Day adventuring. We were in Mauritania heading for the border with Senegal, 3 months into our African Adventure. This time was quite different. Instead of waking early, packing the...

Antarctica update 2014

As there was an overland vehicle involved this season as well, I thought I should do a write up on the main events in this year’s Antarctic season. We arrived back home in Norway mid September, and after about four weeks spent with families and friends, we...

Things to do after an overland trip

Hi All, We’ve been off-line for a while, but are now back in Norway after a great couple of months on the Antarctic continent. Malin was part of the shut-down crew this season, and they flew out on the 11th of February. I’ve been in Norway for a couple of weeks...

Norway – home at last

Dear friends, fellow overlanders, and all readers, This post has been looming in the distance for some time now. But no matter how hard we’ve tried to postpone this part, the time has come. The arrival home, and the final trip report from the unURBAN Adventure through...

Northern Ethiopia

Before I start writing this blog I would like to write short about the Ethiopian salaries and also the cost level in Ethiopia. During our stay this is level of salaries we have been told about: a small scale farmer maybe make 500 birr (26 USD) a month, a security...

North to Alaska — Fairbanks, AK

Our first night out of Smithers we stayed at a Provincial Park at Meziadin Lake (N56 05.235 W129 18.481) and very quickly had a run in with the voracious mosquitoes which attacked us from the moment of our arrival. I was very grateful for the floppy hat complete with...
