Marrakesh & southern Morocco

Καλησπέρα σας και καλό μήνα, καλό χειμώνα και γενικά ότι άλλο καλό επιθυμείτε! Μην περιμένετε και πολλά νεότερα από εμάς αυτές τις μέρες. Ειδικά έπειτα από το ξεσάλωμα σε Άτλαντα και Σαχάρα, ότι και να γράψουμε και να μοιραστούμε από … Continue reading →

Christmas Vacation….

SQUIRREL! Its December the first and Christmas is starting in NYC. The residents in the  apartment we are camping outside have been very interested in the car. Theres been speculation to what we are doing and why we are here. Ranging from “Making a film” and “selling Christmas trees”. We can hear every word outside […]

Cabo de Gata #1, Almería, Spain 10/13

Getting an early start from Granada and the incomparable La Alhambra, we wanted to be ahead of the other 6998 tourists who had presumably visited the complex with us the day before. Too many churches, too many palaces and castles. All wonderful and interesting but it was time to head for a beach and some […]

We zijn online!

Vandaag is een bijzondere dag, want over precies 1 jaar hopen wij te vertrekken! We kijken erg uit naar onze reis van het zuidelijkste puntje van Zuid Afrika naar het noordelijkste puntje van Noorwegen, via West Afrika. De komende maanden hebben we har…

Heading for the Hills

My Family and I had such a great time in Sayulita that I was wondering what we could do to top it. We had spent days with our friends, run on the beach, eaten delicious food and chased giant bugs and lizards. What could be better? Well, it was clearly going to take some time […]

Supersize Me…..

We are in NY and camping on Manhattan Island…I bet its the cheapest accommodation in NY. We found the queue to get in a bit much even on Thanksgiving at 2pm. The queue for the tunnel was mammoth. We couldn’t use the tunnel….damn !!! Gas bottle on roof = banned. So we had to drive […]

Photos of Khiva

I pushed on towards Khiva, rather than camp – it would have been the crap kind of camping. Where you have to hide and make no noise and try not to be seen. There were simply too many houses and people from the main road to Khiva. Nothing like the desert the day before. Besides, […]

Camp Drama – Chitimba, Malawi

Facebook has all the photos for this part of the trip – click here to have a look. Chitimba Camp, Malawi 28th – 29th November 2013 Squeezing the Beast in between the hundreds of trucks jostling for space in the Songwe border, I eventually found a place to park and hopped out. At any African border, you’re greeted […]

Stay Eat Do in Tanzania

ARUSHA TO STAY: We stayed in Masai Camp on the outskirts of Arusha on the Overlanding trip with Absoulte Africa – it’s a place to pop up your tent but is nothing special. See Lonely Planet’s write up here. TO EAT: Can’t fault the Blue Heron, we had a light lunch here and coffee – lovely garden atmosphere […]

Solid Foundation

Work continues at the garage. We continue to meet/hire contractors and make difficult decisions.  The largest of which so far have been surrounding the floor.  As you know, garages typically have concrete floors.  They tend to be cold and damp- not exactly the living surface we picture in our future …

Sticker shock

Reality is slowly setting in.  We’ve been talking about this project for a while now.  Talking and mocking up plans and saving bits of scrap wood from the shop just in case we can use it.  Finally, we’re able to actually get to work.  Our tenants’ lease on the house …

Mexico – Belize bordercrossing with a dog

We crossed the border between Mexico and Belize on a Sunday. Before being able to cross the Belizean border with a dog, there are quite a few hoops to jump through though. The first thing you need to do is contact the BAHA – the Belize Agricultural Health Authority for an import permit for your… […]

American Hustle…

some times you just want to scream and I know some of you know what I mean….This morning the diff lock lamp was on ( don’t know if its in lock or not = bad ). The switch they broke was again broken. Not a good soldering job. I am unable to fix it and […]

Tanzania Roadtrip Video

Journeying through Tanzania was all too brief and I have no doubt I will be back to explore this incredible country in more depth. Descending into the Ngorongoro Crater, where I would witness one of earth’s most unique ecosystems, was beyond extraordinary. The animals roam within their amphitheatre without a care in the world. Beyond the […]

The Lost Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving morning and I’m sure the first thing on everyone’s mind when they wake up is, “I wonder what Nacho is doing today?” The truth is, this is the first time in our lives that we decided not to celebrate Thanksgiving. But don’t despair! We spent the day, and the last few for that […]

Navigation

Een avondje internetten om de juiste navigatiekaarten te verzamelen voor onze Garmin navigatie apparatuur. Tijdens onze eerste reis naar Afrika maakten we gebruik van Tracks4Africa en dat beviel ons erg goed. Ook de gratis kaarten van OSM (Open Street …
