Brand se Baai and Noup

We reach the campsite at Brand se Baai and there is not a soul in site and the whole place is locked up so we set up camp hoping that someone will arrive in order to get keys for the bathrooms and for us to pay.  We settle in for a nice lamb chop braai […]

What are your thoughts! Costa Rica to close the zoos and free animals?

We thought our readers would want to know what one beautiful Central American Country is planning on doing.  The news has been buzzing lately about Costa Rica’s plan to close their zoos and release all the animals into the wild. We’d love to hear your feedback. You can read more about this plan here:  http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2013/08/04/costa-rica-zoos.html […]

It all started with a little bump. “What on Earth was that?” Sheena asked, wide-eyed and alarmed. “Just a little bump,” I said reassuringly. As dictated by Murphy’s Law, it was 92 kilometers into a 100 kilometer diversion off of Thailand’s northwestern mountain circuit that would have taken us to a high mountaintop campsite next [...]

A Series of Unfortunate Events

After our off road exploration of the Luangwa valley, we made our way towards Kapishya Hot Springs – a place that almost every traveller we have met has said we should visit.  On the way, we passed Shiwa Ng’unda – a large English estate from the 180s (I believe). It really does look like an … <p><a href="http://www.kapp2cape-blog.net/2013/08/its-in-the-attitude/">Continue reading »</a></p>

Photos of Biking Across Mongolia

Having made it to Kharkhorin and had a look round the Erd Zuu monastery, I was looking forward to beginning the off-road adventures through Mongolia. Alas, progress has been made and the tarmac extended for a couple more days’ ride… I lingered longer than anticipated in Tsetserleg as their Naadam festival was just beginning. So […]

Bagno di Gavorrano, Italy

  Being close to Bagno di Gavorrano in Italy by now we thought it would be time to wrap up the events of the last three weeks. We left on the 10th of July after a little farewell party the weekend before and a nice breakfast with the family in the morning. Leaving was certainly […]

Dushambe, un cuibusor tadjik

Cica nu exista rau fara bine. Pentru calatori, a fi cu ochii in patru e musai: atentie si la pericole, dar si la oportunitati efemere (vocea unei femei care rasuna in fundul alei poate vesti o petrecere, un claxon de bicicleta poate semnala baiatul cu paine calda&#8230; si tot asa). In unele cazuri e o […]

outdoor theater movie night camping campsite projector

Campsite Movie Night? C’mon, Really?

I did something on my last trip that I never thought I’d do: found an amazing little perch about 500 feet above a gorgeous valley which extended from horizon to horizon, set up camp, grilled a fantastic pork chop, poured myself a Maker’s Mark, and finally… fired up the movie theater? You’d better believe it. […]

Turning for home

Sudan would end up being the northern most country we would visit on our African odyssey. With time and declining bank balances, restrictive Egyptian import laws, and the Syrian conflict staring back at us, we made the difficult decision to turn the PPE around and head back for Tanzania. Kathmandu it wasn’t; nor was it […]

Route Mombasa to Nairobi, Kenya

Here is the route of my trip from Mombasa to Nairobi (you can move the map around by clicking and holding) Mombasa (blue) to Diani Beach (red) – 23 miles (1 hour due to Likoni Ferry) – see post here Diani Beach to Tsavo East (green) – 144 miles (5 hours through the Shimba Hills) […]

So things are not looking good at the moment.

Wine in this, the Italian part Switzerland, is sometimes sipped from small pottery cups called "tazzin".

Sonogno, Ticino, Switzerland 7/13

Google Map Despite my misgivings on the way up the valley, the village of Sonogno was worth every hairpin corner. Dating back to 1200, Sonogno is the last village on the paved road in the Valley Verzasca. All motor vehicles are required to park at the …

Moving….

Been meaning to post this for a bit….We’ve been told on our travels that we are moving too fast, moving too slow and that we’ve missed the “beautiful” things….that we’re going to die in the next country on many occasions….many times we’ve been told this in both Africa and America…We’ve met people “travelling” very slowly….in […]
