Can young, career-oriented Americans benefit from the European custom of extended travel before entering the workforce? Young, career-oriented Americans don’t travel. Sure, we enjoy hard-earned one to two week vacations, short respites from our work, but do we really see the world? As exciting as a vacation to some wonder of the world like Machu […]
Our truck has held up really well and we are happy with it and the XP Camper it hauls around. But it needed some attention and we found a shop (Tecnicentro Chicago) in Cuenca whose owners, two brothers, are US trained mechanics … Continue reading →

Hooray! I found hiding in my cloud some pictures I thought were lost because I put them on the computer and the computer died. So here they are: I saw this bird (didn’t take this picture, obvi) and he was cute and very bright! This is the 500 year old cactus in the Etnobotanico Garden. […]
Hasta ahora en nuestro viaje, ningún otro lugar nos ha dado tantos altibajos como Nicaragua. Entramos al país por las tierras bajas noroccidentales. En vez de ir hacia la región montañosa norte, escogimos la costa. Hacía días que no veíamos el mar. El camino cruzó terrenos ganaderos: colinas y pastos verdes parecidos a cuando una […]
This is Mike… As most of you know by now we are not “Big city” people and prefer smaller towns with less congestion. However, as cities go, Santiago is fantastic. It is not a cheap city nor terribly expensive it is somewhere in the middle…
The Hamad El Niel Mosque … a really magical place! The impressions from the “Zikir” at the Hamad El Niel-Mosque in Omdurman/Khartoum deeply stay in our minds. Again, it’s the personal encounters with people on the road which are even more inspiring than all the places, buildings and sights which in themselves are impressive anyway! […]

This is Mike…Yesterday a block away, less than 120 yards, from our apartment was a major bomb threat which shut down the main tourism corridor in Santiago for several hours. People evacuated their busy workplaces in the affected skyscraper and filled…
Het is vrijdag 20 november. We hebben een rustig dagje vandaag; de was, de extension opzetten en proberen om een aansluiting van het zonnepaneel te repareren. Roos komt vandaag aan en zal de komende 10 dagen met ons meereizen. We gaan haar bij het vliegveld ophalen met een taxi van de camping. Voor we vertrekken, […]
This is Mike…Nighttime is usually bedtime in our household but since we had Lia in town visiting we modified our routine a bit. We decided to see the city by night by strolling around the Plaza de Armas and surroundings. The crowds thin out considera…
The days and weeks that followed our robbery in Tehran have been a rollercoaster. The sheer distress and heartache of losing so many of our precious and vital possessions left us with the awful desperate feeling that this might be the end of our trip. We started to feel unsafe and panicked in the city, […]
