(22nd – 29th, April 2016) After our visit to Paricutin we no longer had any thoughts about leaving the Cuota in Michoacan and so enjoyed our drive through the hilly landscape towards our next destination, which was no less a pleasant surprise.

(15th – 21st April, 2016) The state of Michoacán has a very bad reputation, and not just with foreigners either. It was almost like when we crossed from the USA into Mexico when we told people where we were heading. The worried faces looking back at us spoke volumes along with the many stories ranging […]
(30th March – 15th April, 2016) Just after leaving the harbor we were plunged into the turbulent chaos that is the traffic of Mazatlan and it was made abundantly clear to us what was meant by the “light version” and the “real” Mexico – at least where the traffic was concerned. In comparison to the […]
(29th – 30th March, 2016) The ferry trip from La Paz to Mazatlan on the Mexican mainland was where the “real” Mexico started. What that meant we didn’t really know at that moment, though we would soon find out. We arrived at the La Paz harbor in the early afternoon so that we had enough […]
(07th – 29th March, 2016) Northern Baja was an exciting and adventurous experience for us – especially because of all the new impressions; we did ask ourselves, however, what was supposed to be so great about the Baja. As one of the most touristic areas of Mexico we had heard of beautiful beaches, wonderful towns, […]
(26th February – 7th March, 2016) When you plan to travel to Mexico it is not exactly the best idea to travel through the USA beforehand as the level of negative propaganda and fear mongering is unbelievable. Almost everyone, who we told that we were planning to go to Mexico, had the same series of […]

(31st January – 09th February, 2016) Visiting cities with our setup and our available budget is generally quite rare, but with Las Vegas we decided to make an exception. Right from the start we knew that we wanted to visit and really experience Las Vegas with all that it entailed. There may be lots of […]
(17th – 30th January, 2016) Utah didn’t fit in a single article as we originally thought. We had so many amazing experiences that we couldn’t possibly do it justice trying to pack it all into a single article, not to mention its length would challenge even our most devote readers’ attention span. So the planned […]
(09th – 16th January 2016) “Life elevated” was written on the welcome sign to the State of Utah – and that was, in our opinion, not only because of the actual physical elevation of the state but also their general overall attitude towards life. In Utah awaited us one of the most spectacular landscapes that […]
