Pura Vida in Costa Rica!

Six month after I started driving southwards from Canada, I have now reached the turning point of this journey. While plans, fellow passengers, time schedules and personal aims have changed along the way, so has the final destination. Instead of bolting through to Panama, I decided to take it easy and spend more time in the places I love. Pura Vida!

Good Times in Nica (ragua)

Nicaragua was all I had hoped for. Nice beaches, relatively good roads, old colonial cities, a nice crowd of travelers, lots of volcanoes and inexpensive too. There was really not much left to wish for but to come back soon!

Greetings from Paradise

Wild horses on the beach, colorful Macaws flying through ancient Maya ruins and snorkeling the corals of a Caribbean island. Those were the last two weeks in El Salvador and Honduras!

Guatemala Adventures

Being our first country in Central America, Guatemala has been pleasant and relaxed but also challenging. A burglary into our truck, roads too steep to climb and alleys too narrow to pass through, to name but a few. All in all it was still a good experience and I will be back on my way up north in May!

Macario – Meeting with a traditional Mexican healer

When I first heard about Macario Cimas, it was clear to me that I wanted to meet him in person and learn more about these old Mexican traditions. Macario is one of a few traditional healers, which are still operating in the Oaxaca mountain region, combining his ancient knowledge with the open mindedness of a modern human being.

100 Impressions from Mexico

The last three weeks have past rather quickly. We spend the time with a lot of driving, lovely spots and still more amazing people. Mexico has already taken a special place in my heart. But now it is time to leave the country and start our Central America adventure in Guatemala!

Human Relations on the Road

One of the single most important things about traveling are the people. The people you meet, the people you travel with and the people you have to leave behind. Everyone can be a good or a bad ingredient in the cocktail that is your very own special trip. Because I was so caught up in human relations for the last few weeks, this blog is about just that: The people.

Viva la Mexico

After a week in Mexico we have yet to experience any hazardous situations. The ones everyone warned us about. Apart from some odd looks we have only met nice people, willing to help us and interested in our trip. The gap in language is still a problem, but we will try to pick up Spanish as fast as possible.

Frozen eggs in the desert

After almost 30 degrees Celsius in Los Angeles, I was ready to get my board shorts out and enjoy the hot and dry climate you would expect from the desert. We were on our way into the Mojave Desert, which spreads along bigger parts of our upcoming trip. But the same night I was proven wrong, when our wet towels froze inside the camper…

On the road again

Raindrops on the camper’s roof, changing sights every day and scrambled eggs with baked beans. Library days, cold showers, road trip tunes and driving on the slow lane. Laundry hangouts, books, car repairs, wanderlust, highway maps and cloudy days with sunny endings. I’m on the road again!
