Als we Liechtenstein verlaten, rijden we Zwitserland binnen. Op de brug die de overgang is tussen de twee landen, stoppen we even. Het is erg mooi weer, strakblauwe lucht en een lekker zonnetje.We hebben nog geen 10 minuten gereden als we het geluid van koeienbellen...
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...

Mines and Glaciers

Mines and Glaciers

Our campsite along the Kennicott river was sublime. Glacier views and a glacial river with ocassional ice chunks floating down. It was a bit cold, we were glad we weren’t in a tent… poor Bob. We took the $5 shuttle bus up to the company town of Kennecott....
Magical Mysterious Meteora

Magical Mysterious Meteora

    Actually, we don’t quite like too touristy sights, but we thought that we could not go to Greece and leave out Meteora. To be honest: we are totally impressed and this place surely is worth visiting even though it is touristy. Just like Kata Tjuta...
