Twelve Miles of Montana

And it took us two days. Hebgen Lake – not yet open for the season so the camping is free. We actually made money on the deal – someone left 15 cents on our table. When we arrived in the afternoon, there were a few fly fisherman about, but then they left it to us for […]

Pinguins, mar azul e o melhor da Cidade do Cabo

Saímos da Cidade do Cabo cedo e seguimos para o Cabo da Boa Esperança, um dos lugares mais bonitos da região, a estrada é beirando o mar e cheio de lindo visuais. Nossa primeira parada foi na praia de Camps Bay, onde do alto da estrada vimos essa incrível praia, ali nos perguntamos: Estamos no […]

Apaixonados pela Cidade do Cabo

Aproveitando a presença dos meus pais na Cidade do Cabo e a tranquilidade do feriado de Pascoa, saímos do apartamento alugado no Airbnb para explorar a região. Duas quadras da nossa localização existia um parque chamado Company’s Garden, repleto de verde e bem tranquilo, muitas pessoas vão para lá com suas famílias para fazer piquenique, […]

Almost crossed the border

Almost crossed the border from Honduras and Guatemala, almost. The Copan location is quite different from all the other ones in Honduras, it’s clean, civilized and fast. Checked out from […]

De romantische waterstad Venetië

Voordat we aankomen in Venetië bestuderen we de kaart. Op internet lezen we namelijk steeds “camping in Venetië, direct aan het water”. Nou dat klopt maar dan in de provincie Venetië en dat ligt nog kilometers ver voor Venetië zelf. Je kan dan wel met trein, bus of boot naar Venetië toe. Waarschijnlijk is er […]

The Road Less Traveled

After our last post, we had some friends ask why we made the decision to drive directly from Peru to Chile instead of taking the more-commonly taken route via Cuzco and Lake Titicaca into Bolivia before entering Chile. It is a very good question. The answer is that we are fortunate to have visited many […]

Still Faithful. Again.

Still in Yellowstone, and time to travel south to see Old Faithful again. Obviously, we had to recreate one of our favorite photos of the trip – Jason and I with our heads cut off. A new family tradition has been born. We had planned to camp in Yellowstone, but it seemed a little uninviting. […]

Bonjour ihr alle<br /><br />Wir sind in Frankreich angekommen und vorher mal schnell durch die Schweiz gehuscht, um festzustellen dass da alles ganz schön teuer ist. Ich sag nur, n' Menü bei Burger King für 17,20 Euro. Unfassbar. Die ersten Grenzübergänge waren ohne Probleme zu bewältigen. :-) Leider keine Fotos.<br /><a name="more"></a>Wir haben ziemlich gutes Wetter hier unten und es kommt richtig Urlaubsstimmung auf. Morgens schlafen wir oft lange aus und kommen somit immer erst mittags los. Über Tag sitzen wir eigentlich nur im Auto und lassen die Landschaft an uns vorbei rauschen. Grad sind wir in Aix les Bains an einem See namens Lac du Bourget und verbringen die Nacht auf einem Campingplatz. Meine französischen Vokabeln, die ich den Tag über gelernt habe, kommen leider nicht zum Einsatz, denn die nette Frau am Empfang spricht einen lustigen Mix aus deutsch und englisch, mit französischen Akzent. Eine wunderschöne Kulisse begleitet uns in den Abend. Rot leuchtende Berge die den See einfassen...<br />Au revoir ihr Lieben. Wir denken an euch! Mareike und Andreas<br />Hier noch zwei Bilder von unserem Spaziergang am See...<br /><div><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-i2JNzDrMXPc/VVmqCsKLUlI/AAAAAAAAB9k/E7HqLpjJRKI/s1600/_MG_0044.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-i2JNzDrMXPc/VVmqCsKLUlI/AAAAAAAAB9k/E7HqLpjJRKI/s400/_MG_0044.JPG"/></a></div><div><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oVsyiRydt5w/VVmqrDUOLKI/AAAAAAAAB9s/rN1CINKheW0/s1600/_MG_0051.JPG"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oVsyiRydt5w/VVmqrDUOLKI/AAAAAAAAB9s/rN1CINKheW0/s400/_MG_0051.JPG"/></a></div>

Get Your Kicks On Route 66

Após passarmos a tarde secando o toldo e a barraca, limpando o barro das nossas botas e arrumando e limpando a bagunça do Godzilla, hoje (17/05/15) de manhã saímos de Kingman e pegamos a famosa Route 66. A “Mother Road” (Estrada Mãe), como é carinhosamente chamada pelos Americanos, é uma das primeiras rodovias dos EUA, inaugurada […]

N’Kob & Dades

Today we headed to N’kob in 225 km, but opted to start via the pist and to ride along the dunes. Our friends had suggested a stop at Yasmina Lake. This is a lake formed by rainfall and is seasonal. … Continue reading →

More Yellowstone

We spent a great evening watching the elk and their babies from our campsite. The next morning we decided we needed another night at this site, but first we needed to clean up a bit. We drove just outside the park, to Montana, to take care of business. We were pleasantly surprised with a one-stop […]

These views remind us of the Copper Canyon.

Following the Devil’s Backbone

El Espinazo del Diablo (the Devil’s Backbone—a mountain pass along Mexico’s highway 40) is an infamously sinuous mountain road that joins the towns of Mazatlán, Sinaloa and Durango, Durango. The road has a bit of a reputation for punishing travellers with terrifying accident-inducing winding turns. Luckily travellers are also rewarded with spectacular views as the road runs along a mountain ridge, high in the […]

Many people need a cup of good coffee for a good start into the day. In our case, we definitely need tea. Strong and sweet Assam tea! Typical and traditional "Ostfriesentee" (East-Frisian Tea)! Every morning! Boiling water in the camp early in the morning sometimes can be a really annoying task, especially when you've got […]

Asuncion, Paraguay

Our ride to Asuncion is a long one, and seems to burn through the day quickly.  Having had to deal with a hard-starting bike this morning no doubt has set the tone for the day.  We arrive in Asuncion later… Read More ›

Cinco coisas para você ver em Viena, Áustria

Sabe aquelas cidades onde você chega e tudo parece bonito, arrumado, cheio de detalhes? Viena na Áustria é nesse estilo, para onde olhávamos sempre havia uma coisa bonita para ver, infelizmente é uma cidade meia cara para quem está na estrada como nós e tivemos que ficar pouco tempo, mas com certeza é um lugar […]

O reencontro

Depois de quase dois anos sem ver meus pais, era estranho a sensação de saber que eles estavam para chegar nos próximos dias. Claro que hoje em dia a conexão pela internet é muito mais presente, quer queria quer não, vejo meus pais quase todas as semanas pelo Skype, muito diferente de dez anos atrás […]

So far away from home: Belgium versus Australia

Sometimes something happens which really points out some difference between Belgium and Australia. I mean, it’s obvious that the 2 countries are very different, but people and attitudes are very different too. Like the other day when a Belgian friend said “You know that I’m moving a long way away!” I was a bit taken […]
