Unforgettable Nature

On Kauai we ended our camping experiment prematurely. As on this island camp grounds cannot be booked online, we went to the county office in person. There we received the info that Haena State Park, the only campsite that allowed campervans, was closed because a storm had washed away the street accessing it. As the […]

Island of the Whales

On Maui we tried to continue our Campervan/hotel mix but almost failed. Before our second night at the Waianapanapa State park we were informed by the park ranger that our car is not considered a camper van but a camper car and because car camping is illegal on Maui we are not allowed to sleep […]

The Volcano Capital

Those four nights in a tent on Oahu were just too much for us. Arriving on the Big Island, luckily Hilo is one of the few places on Hawaii that offers relatively cheap accommodation and we could therefore afford two nights in a basic hotel. Even though the hotel was far from nice, it felt […]

A Drop of Red Luxury

If you like wine you will absolutely love Mendoza. Everything in and around this little city in the western part of Argentina is about wine.

Punished with Torture

The great thing about Valparaiso is that it combines art and wine. And the art is mostly out in the streets, on the walls of the houses. During the military dictatorship graffiti was punished with torture and therefore this form of art developed as a form of protest and a sign of freedom. Today Valparaiso […]

Why is Chile so rich?

One of the things we realized early when traveling in Chile, was that the infrastructure seemed to be in way better shape than in the other South American countries we’ve been to. The reason for this is, that Chile is the richest country in South America – but why? Based on an article in the […]

Don’t drink and drive

With 200 million liters, Chile is the fourth biggest wine exporter in the world. And as we, and especially Daniela, are big wine lovers, we focused our time in Santiago all around wine. Soon we realized that there is no public transport going to the wineries and that wine tours are fairly high priced. And […]
