Op de brug over de ‘Cross river’ moeten we stoppen. Eerst naar een dame van het Ministerie van Gezondheid die onze vaccinatieboekjes controleert en onze temperatuur opneemt (ivm de Ebola). Bij de politiepost ernaast noteren ze allerlei gegevens over ons. Co loopt pakjes mango juice uit te delen om het geheel wat te bespoedigen. Helaas, als […]
About an hour or so South of San Miguel de Allende (SMA), still in the state of Guanajuato is the Pueblo Magico of Salvatierra. This town has a completely different feel to it like SMA. […] The post Salvatierra appeared first on BARNA TANKO.
This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. One of the highlights of our trip. The most impressive ruins we’ve ever seen. The beauty and grandeur of the Inca people, set high atop a mountain and so remote you can only access it by train or by foot. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of […]
Travel the world: Preparing for a new life – the impact on our relationship. A little more than a year ago we decided to change our lives drastically. One of the largest impacts it had was on our relationship. Our personal story: One year ago We knew each other for a few months and recently […]

Evening at a cactus sanctuary near Valparaiso, Chile.
I was trying to focus on “long breathing” while holding my yoga pose, thoughts of aging on my mind. Unfortunately, my posture was made more challenging as Porter poked his nose under my arm and decided to squirm in and … Continue reading → The post Thoughts on Aging appeared first on The Next Big […]
When we open the tent there are green valleys all around us. There are some gentle clouds covering the higher mountains. The birds are telling each other good morning, the sun is coming out from behind a cloud. This is promising to become a gr…
We are now on our way to Bogota to get fresh tires and the replacement headlight that Britannia Composites had shipped to us the day after Christmas, following one small email, only hours earlier, telling them that my bulb failed. Now that’s some customer service. The headlight has been amazing until this point, as has […]

I said I take the day off, but the flowers were calling and I went to see them. The flower fair is still on and I’m still in SMA. This is an unusual long rest […] The post Flowers appeared first on BARNA TANKO.
The trip to the Elefanttreffen was another thing off my must do list and coincidentally also finished my relationship with BMW (broken motorcycles worldwide) We set out on Saturday 23rd January and had an uneventful run to the ferry at DFDS Newcastle. Great to see a former work colleague at the services just off the A1, […]
Traveling with Syncro has been one of our highlights of this experience. He is a part of the team and we spoil him like a little child. We go through hoops to make sure he is well taken care of. Whether that is making a sacrifice on where we stay so he can be with […]
We crossed back into Canada the same day with no issues. Just a 5 minute border passport check. Then, it
Selecionamos algumas fotos para dar um gostinho do que estamos vivenciando aqui na Rússia. Um país de temperaturas geladas (já pegamos -37ºC!!!) mas com pessoas de coração quente. Amanhã deixaremos as cidades com infra-estrutura as margens da ferrovia trans-siberiana e partiremos rumo ao norte, para uma das regiões mais remotas e intocadas do planeta. “Then, we […]
Seit Kurzem ist unser zweites Carnet de Passage gültig und wir überqueren die Grenze zum 25. Land auf unserer Reise nach Asien. Laut unseren Informationen und den Angaben im Carnet gilt in Kambodscha das dieses nicht, an der Grenze wird auch nicht danach gefragt, stattdessen aber nach einer Permit. Wir stellen uns wieder einmal dämlich […]
It’s not exactly midnight yet, so it’s still time to post todays blah-blah. Despite some serious heel pain I am still strolling around SMA for the daily dose of photographs. A stop by the flower […] The post Another day in SMA appeared first on BARNA TANKO.
[Please scroll down for the English version] [LV] Piedzīvojums ir veiksmīgi (at)sācies. Laikapstākļi mūs “lutina”. Lai gan cerības uz pasakainiem laikapstākļiem mums nebija, patstāvīgs lietus arī nav īsti tas, uz ko bijām cerējuši. Papildus tam mūsu nometnē ir ielavījies kaut kāds vīruss, kas nelaiž mūs vaļā. Patiecoties nemitīgajam lietum un vīrusam skaisto Oregonas krastu izbaudīt […]

Since we last checked in, we were driving across the country from Baja, Mexico. We’ve done a fair bit of driving through the middle of the country over the last few months. Thanks to the US highway system and cheap diesel, we’ve hardly noticed a dent i…

De controlepost aan de grens is wat onduidelijk. De politieman heeft geen uniform aan en hij heeft ook geen stempel. Hij is pas net op het werk, hij vertelt dat hij zijn vrouw eerst even weg moest brengen. Hij vraagt of we het ok vinden om naar het kantoor zo’n 5 kilometer verderop te rijden. […]
