Ecuador- A brief visit to the coast

Having spent almost a year traveling Mexico and Central America, we have had our fill of beach time and since we left Colombia, our desire to be on the coast is minimal. So we debated if we would even visit the coast of Ecuador. Since the country is small (in South American standards) and diesel […]

Costa Amalfitana

A Costa Amalfitana é famosa pela linda junção de vilas medievais com um belo cenário de praia. O que não imaginávamos era que a estrada seria tão estreita, o nosso querido carro, o Coyote, quase não conseguia fazer as curvas e os smarts e mini cooper juntos com as lambretas é que tinham desviavam de […]

Matera, Italia

Nosso primeiro dia na Itália, foi em Taranto, apesar de termos ouvido maravilhas sobre toda a região da Pluglia, nosso tempo está curto, pois temos nossas irmãs chegando em Paris e ainda o visto para resolver. Embaixo de chuva nos despedimos da Barbara e sua família e seguimos para nosso próximos destino: Matera. Essa pequena […]

Chegada na Itália…

Apesar da correia dos últimos dias com barco para Santorini, barco de volta para Atenas, estrada e barco para a Itália. Nós dois sempre enjoamos facilmente e apesar de sempre tomarmos um dramin, é sempre um desconforto. A parte boa é que estávamos chegando em um novo país e esse é sempre um motivo de […]

Últimos dias em Atenas

Depois de visitar Santorini, voltamos para Atenas, agora já nos organizando para a próxima viagem, pegar o barco e cruzar para Itália. Depois do episódio no barco de volta de Santorini, eu não estava nada animada para pegar balsa, mas faz parte. Antes de partirmos ainda precisávamos dar uma atenção para o nosso querido carro, o […]

Close Encounters!

Nog een dag of twee en Zambia zit er op. En als we aan Zambia terug denken zien we vrouwen met grote emmers water balancerend op hun hoofd. En vrouwen met kinderen in een doek op de rug. En vrouwen met een emmer water op het hoofd én een kind in een doek op de […]

Visitando Acrópoles

Depois de uma agradável noite no centro de Atenas, descansamos muito bem, para quem se lembra dos posts de Istambul, andamos muito por lá e estávamos muito cansados fisicamente. Precisávamos resolver algumas coisas do carro e aproveitamos nossos amigos que falam a língua local para tentar nos ajudar. Começamos pelo alternador, tínhamos recebido um modelo […]

Back in time , touring the Amalfi

Getting Vic an I out of the port took some doing and a couple of hours of pillar to post ,  I had my passport in hand , no entry stamp though ,  no documentation for  the  temporary import of the scooter into the EU , and I could not really tell customs , Victoria was returning to […]

Glacier National Park

[Please scroll down for the English version] [LV] Katrs tūkstoš jūdžu ceļojums sākas ar vienu soli. Mūsu dzīvēs šis solis tika sperts 2014. gada augustā, un tā rezultātā jau tagad esam piedzīvojuši ļoti daudz un redzējuši vēl vairāk. Tomēr katrs pirmais solis noved pie pirmā apskates objekta. Mums tas bija Ledāju Nacionālais Parks (Glacier National […]

The Place in the Midde

We are stuck. We spend our free time reading other travelers blogs, sucking up the nervous energy of those just preparing to embark, the excitement and joy of those on the road, and the reflection of those at the end. … Continue reading → The Place in the Midde is a post from: The Next […]

Fresh Fruit; Fresh Tequila

Even though our border crossing experience was very easy, we were both a little nervous about driving in Mexico. After all, we had spent the past 2 weeks spending time with our very concerned families, and getting looks from people like they would never see us again. We tried to stay positive through all of […]

Riding into Peru

We get to the border late in the day and I check my watch while we work on paperwork and see its 4pm. Yikes. We were hoping to ride all the way to San Ignacio tonight just to get away… Read More ›

Joya De Cerén, the Pompeii of the Americas.

Joya De Cerén El Salvador should not be missed. UNESCO says this about this site. Joya de Cerén was a pre-Hispanic farming community that, like Pompeii in Italy, it was buried under an eruption of the Laguna Caldera volcano c. AD 600. In fact, it is nicknamed “The Pompeii of the Americas”.  Because of the […]

Beaches north of Viña del Mar: Horcón to Papudo

In this 2nd post I describe the beaches north of Viña del Mar, from Horcón to Papudo. Some of these small towns attract the rich and famous of Chile – for good reasons. The post Beaches north of Viña del Mar: Horcón to Papudo appeared first on dare2go.

Ecuador- The volcano adventures

There is something very primal about volcanoes. They are massive, dangerous, unpredictable, beautiful and very exotic (to this California girl at least). We saw many volcanoes throughout Central America, but the ones in Ecuador took the whole volcano thing to an entire new level. The volcanoes here are at high altitudes, the cones are covered in snow, […]

De rook die dondert

Ze zijn niet de hoogste ter wereld en ook niet de langste, maar ze zijn wel de grootste ter wereld: de Victoriawatervallen. Op de grens tussen Zambia en Zimbabwe valt de rivier de Zambezi over een breedte van ruim 1700 meter met bulderend geweld de diepte in. Op het hoogste punt maar liefst 128 meter. […]

Lahemaa National Park

Lahemaa National Park is the largest in Estonia. It is a beautiful, serene place with a myriad of hiking options. With the bone-chilling arctic wind at our backs, we set off on a 25 KM hike into the land of bears, boars and elk. This is what we saw:            …
