Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas!

(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 […]

Utah, Arizona – More Life Elevated

(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 […]

Utah – “Life Elevated”

(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 […]

Nevada

(22nd December 2015 – 9th January 2016 ) After taking the mountain pass east of Lake Tahoe everything suddenly changed. We almost couldn’t believe the drastic changes that unfolded in front of us. Not only did the landscape change from the deep green of Pines to an aired desert-like landscape we suddenly found ourselves under […]

US Pacific Coast

(7th – 22nd December 2015) From Vancouver Island we took the ferry on a particularly rainy day to Port Angeles in Washington State. The weather wasn’t any better than on the Canadian side and apparently it was supposed to stay that way for the foreseeable future. At least the border crossing was easy and I […]

Vancouver Island

(31st October  – 7th December, 2015) After almost 7 months living like free roaming gypsies we felt that it was time to start thinking a bit about our finances. Our budget was pretty small to begin with and if we wanted to be able to travel longer we would need to sooner or later take […]

British Columbia & Alberta

(07th. – 31st. October, 2015) Saying our goodbyes to the Yukon on the 7th of October we started heading south on the Stewart-Cassiar highway. We didn’t want to drive too long after the late night the day before and it appeared as though we wouldn’t have to search for a wild camping spot either. We stopped […]

Yukon – Part II

(24th September – 7th October, 2015) We, more me, were once again nervous with the upcoming border crossing into Canada, although this time not really without cause since my current visitor visa was set to expire in exactly one week. Of course we had looked into the possibilities of extending the visa but no one […]

Alaska

(9th -24th September, 2015) A border crossing is always quite exciting, you hear all manner of horror stories, especially with US border crossings; and you never really know what to expect. In our case, however, we had absolutely nothing to worry about. The two lady officers at the Poker Creek Border were really exceptionally friendly.
