Fellow Overlanders

This was another unexpected publish from the L.I.F.E (Litle Indian Family of Explorers) our companions and friends through the Nepal earthquake. We met the Baid Family on line while we were trying to organise our China crossing. A crazy dream that Anad  (the...
France

France

01-2005/12-2010 France and its ex-colonies. I know that for most of the people that visit France the number one destination is the cosmopolitan Paris. That wasn’t the case for me. I first stepped my foot into French territory in the Caribbean, when I visited Guadalupe...
Carribbean Lifestyle in Kenya?

Carribbean Lifestyle in Kenya?

As many international overlanding families are connected via facebook (especially through the Facebook group “International Overland Families”), for a long time we had planned to meet the “Dacaluf” and “KUMP” families from France....
The Pyrenees

The Pyrenees

We headed out late at 11 am north again towards the Pyrenees in France. We planned out route to cross Andorra for country number 43! We had the perfect storm and over 2 hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic thru Andorra. It is a Saturday and the cross border shoppers are...
South in France

South in France

The weather has not improved much as we headed south from Lyon it got worse and worse. We plotted a course to Gordes southeast of Avignon using the secondary roads. We did not stop at Vienne as planned since seeing Roman ruins in the pouring rain is no fun. We...
Lyon France

Lyon France

Franck had big plans for us for our sightseeing visit to Lyon. It did involve quite a bit of good food and wine. The first order of the day in France is get the bread for dinner!! We did spend one day touring Lyon, but on the way we stopped in Trevoux to admire the...
Door het midden van Frankrijk

Door het midden van Frankrijk

Opnieuw zijn we in La Belle France. In het begin van onze reis zijn we hier begonnen en via de westkust van Frankrijk naar Portugal gereden. Nadat we in Spanje zijn geweest, zijn we via Zuid Frankrijk naar Italië gegaan. En toen we uit de UK kwamen, zijn we via Parijs...
Spain to Morocco

Spain to Morocco

After an amazing night out with Kevin and Heike we got up in the morning feeling a little worse for wear. We packed up at a slow pace and said goodbye to the residents in the camp site. They seem to spend winters in Spain and then head back home for the summer. All...
Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Home. After a mad dash across Italy and France, I can finally stop and draw breath. The problem was that, as ever, there was not enough time. There never is. Every place we travelled through, we went slower, stayed longer than we had time for. And it still wasn’t slow...
Onward We Go!

Onward We Go!

Keeping posts coming with the regularity that you, our valued readers, deserve can be quite difficult at times. In my defense (Rebecca), we’ve been on the road consistently for the last few weeks and have been drinking and relaxing on the Med with friends, which is...
The Hills are Alive!

The Hills are Alive!

Leaving France and the cheese behind, we hopped over the border into the south of Germany near Freiburg. First to the Bodensee, better known to most Brits as Lake Constance (not sure why we English feel the need to rename places in our own language, when the locals...
Did we mention the cheese? (France 2015)

Did we mention the cheese? (France 2015)

Only in France! The absence of recent contributions to the Blog could well have aroused suspicions that we are sitting idle, squandering the days of the European summer. But on the contrary, dear Watson! The life of the overland traveller allows little time for...
Krakow/Cracovie

Krakow/Cracovie

La traversée de l’Allemagne et de la Pologne ont été rapide ceci pour une bonne raison c’est que nous avons attendu pas mal de temps nos visas russes et que le visa Schengen de Chris expire mi-juillet. Ceci n’est que partie remise l’Allemagne et la Pologne n’étant...
