Overland travel: Truck troubles

BAD OMEN It’s a warm spring evening and enjoying cold drinks with our friends Holger and Moni. In two days we’re making our way to Poland. We will leave a day earlier because we want to make a stop near Berlin. Around 10:30PM a phone call put us all into action. We...
Ireland

Ireland

Barely got my breath back from the return from Nepal and we were off to Ireland for the “Norton” meet at the Beara peninsula in the deep South West. I opted for the T3 in the hope of hassle free riding, that proved half right! Alex and I left on Wednesday,...

Team Canada meets up!

It is sad to leave the whole gang from Slovakia, but we must move on with the show. We started out from Takaj about 2 pm headed south to Budapest under the threatening skies. We planned to take the smaller roads and abandon them for the freeway if the weather turned...

A very fun “Program” in Kosice

Today the forecast is 20% rain, but it is pretty windy and chilly for our ride across Slovakia to Kosice. We set out first for Bojnice(bod-neet-sa), where we had breakfast with a view of the castle. The funny thing today was we asked the waitress if she spoke English...

Nieuwe avonturen!

We zijn nu ruim een half jaar terug in Nederland en het gaat goed met ons. Helemaal geland en ingeburgerd zijn we nog niet, maar dat gaat iedere dag beter. De website lag even stil, maar op de achtergrond gebeurt van alles. We hebben ons volop gestort in nieuwe...
French Guiana… bonjour!

French Guiana… bonjour!

Just over the bridge from Brazil and… politics! Overlanders are always best advised to avoid national politics as they travel, but sometimes things just jump in your face. French Guiana is an overseas department of mainland France. It’s officially part of the EU, it...
The journey begins, again.

The journey begins, again.

The journey has begun with a stop at a familiar location.  We lived in Bahia de Kino (Kino Bay) Mexico for a few years, so we love returning to say hello to old friends and scenery.   We parked at Islandia RV Park in “Old Kino” and enjoyed a few nights of...
El Salvador

El Salvador

  Beginnen wir den Eintrag doch mit einer kleinen aber sehr bedeutsamen Zeitungsanzeige:     Der erste Tag seit 2 Jahren an dem KEIN Mensch ermordet wurde in El Salvador. Der ERSTE seit 2 JAHREN. Statistiken wie diese schüren natürlich nicht gerade...

DIY Motorhome: Windows

After removing the fixed and small hopper windows from the bus we installed 4 awning windows and one sliding window in Blu. Aside from these there’s single pane glass right around the front of the bus and in the door. The awning windows  and the sliding...

Beautiful Baja Part 1

Other than our GPS counting down the kms to the Mexican border, the only other indicator that you’re almost at the edge of US Sovereign Territory is the snaking cue of snowbirds eagerly waiting their turn to enter the Badlands! Why would that be I hear you ask? Well...
