Not a travel blog

Somehow I’m not happy with our blog as it is at the moment. I think we started it off somewhat wrong or we went through some development along the way – I have no idea. Somehow I never really  get around to write about the things  I really want to tell,...

Cambodia, from Koh Kong to Kampot

After our action filled arrival we were looking out for a more laid back, relaxed way of travelling. Thats one of the main reasons why we bought Elton – on the one hand the Voyager had some faults, especially in the cooling system, on the other hand we just...

Overland with dogs

Overland with dogs

  We can’t imagine our overland travels without our German Shepherd dogs. For some, they can act like a very good security system, but for us they are the best travel partners . Real friends !   We have 3 dogs, and two of them accompany us most of the time...
Installing a fan in an expedition vehicle

Installing a fan in an expedition vehicle

This week we have installed a roof fan in our expedition truck. Although the installation itself went smoothly we had some unexpected prepping to do.   Why a fan? One person can generate up to 1.5 liter of extra moisture in the air. If you also cook, shower, dry...

Interview with an Adventure Travel YouTuber

I think many people – including the majority of my family – find it hard to accept that an “Aventure Travel YouTuber” is actually a real thing. It might not have existed a few years ago, and perhaps it wont exist in a few years time, but in my...

How to decide on an overland vehicle

Deciding on an overland vehicle is definitely one tough decision. First, your choice will greatly affect the way of traveling: it will determine the places you can go and the hassle you will have while going there. Second, in case you are going on an extended overland...

Ocean, desert, flowers, earthquake…

Blooming Atacama desert

Blooming Atacama desert

During our stay in Santiago de Chile, we’ve heard and seen many stories about the blooming desert in Atacama. Since we were kind of in the area (as we explained to a few friends, 1700km is not really that close), we decided to have a look ourselves. Luckily,...

But you are on vacation…

Many times when we meet people,  they tend to think that we are on a constant vacation.  Some think its great,  others not so. Both opinions are ok with us. But the vacation thing is only partly true.  Sure,  we do see a lot and when people meet us,  we are mostly...

In the last post I mentioned the wallaby videos.  But WordPress is giving me trouble.  I am hopeful that you can see them here.  If not, I will load them on our YouTube page, which has some other entertaining videos also!  ...
Climbing and Lingering

Climbing and Lingering

We lingered around Port Townsend for at least a week. Great funky little town. I can’t recall ever seeing buskers with their own pianos, but there were at least two of them here. And, we all got to hang with our friends a bit longer, so we were in no hurry to...

Testosteron im Gepäck

Manchmal hätte ich gerne mehr Testosteron im Gepäck. Klingt erstmal komisch, ich erkläre Euch, was ich meine: Immer wieder stelle ich fest, dass Steffi und ich einen Hang haben, Herausforderungen ausführlichst zu durchdenken. Statt es einfach zu tun. Etwa im Gelände:...

Food! Food in Baja…

Click to view slideshow. Everyone loves food!  I would consider ourselves as amature foodies, who also love to cook and creating new drinks.  In our tiny home on wheels we made sure there was enough room for a two burner stove top, sink, full spice rack and the...
