Tecate: Our U.S.A. to Mexico Border Crossing

The route we’re in the process of taking through Mexico is from Tecate, down the Baja California peninsula to La Paz, then from La Paz across the Sea of Cortez by ferry to Mazatlan, after which we’ll be zipping a mere 2,600 kilometres across the mainland of Mexico to the Yucatan peninsula. My sister Nic and my brother Ben and … Read More

A Breakdown and a Pause Before Mexico

Since Christmas we’ve been through a dozen different landscapes, wild camped under the most brilliant starry skies, and had another mechanical breakdown. On the way from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, in a very empty part of Nevada, Hanna started really laboring up hills, to the point where she conked out.  Luckily we just made it to a petrol station … Read More

Deserts, Mountains and Canyons, Southern USA Style

Time seems to be flying by and so here’s an update on some of the amazing stuff we’ve seen and done since San Francisco.  I can’t believe it’s only been just over 3 weeks since we left, and how much we’ve seen in that time. After San Fran we drove down the coast before heading east to Death Valley.  We hung out … Read More

What Does a Day’s Driving Look Like from Hanna’s Perspective?

So some of you may have picked up on the fact that we have a dashcam fitted in the windscreen. It was a thing I wanted to experiment with and wasn’t really sure what would come out of it. So the first (and perhaps most obvious) aspect of it that needed (needs) solving; is what does one do with so … Read More

Hanna Below the Sea

It’s been a while – Sas explained why – so we are now in a warmer and significantly quieter place – Death Valley, CA. The ups and the downs (literally and figuratively) of driving through such a diverse landscape are fading in to a warmer glow of memory, the nights of freezing head and warm body fade also as the … Read More

It’s a Long Way Home (via California!)

Some of you may have noticed that it’s been a while since our last update. From Vancouver, our last stop in Canada, we drove every day for 12 days. We stopped each night, and then moved on. We’d had enough of the cold and where heading for California and the warmer weather. By the end of the 12 days and … Read More

We Love Vancouver!

We’re a bit upside down and inside out with our posts at the moment because we haven’t blogged for a while.  We still want to write about the best bits of our travels so far though! So… Wow!  Vancouver.  We loved it.  What more can I say.  It’s certainly a city of extremes: from the city beaches, to the views … Read More

Icefields Parkway, Waterfalls, Glaciers and Mountains

That’s a big title – one that I probably wont adequately fulfil – but there is a road from a place called Jasper to a place called Banff called the Highway 93 – luckily some bright spark re-named it the Icefields Parkway and that is much easier to write about. So Jasper and Banff are Canadian national parks – Banff … Read More

Lake Louise to Kelowna

  Lake Louise Campground, this morning: we woke to the whispering patter of snow falling onto Hanna’s roof. The already-snowy landscape took on another level of quiet as the campground’s few tire tracks and foot prints were filled in by the night’s snowfall.  We turned on the heater and lay in bed until the van heated up.  It was -5C … Read More

Niagara Falls – Some Photos for Now; With More to Follow ….

So before it fades a little here are some of the photos we took at the amazing Niagara Falls. There are many places to read about this incredible location, on and off the net, and we will add some (well choosen?) words to that library very soon but for now here are some images to keep you interested: More soon … Read More
