In 2005 we changed our lifestyle and became full-time travelers ever since.
In mobile homes we rolled through North Africa, South America, Russia, Mongolia, China,
Southeast Asia, New Zealand, Australia and Southern Africa.
Right now we are on the move in North America.
The future: We remain nomadic and let every day take us by surprise.
We hope that all of you have fun in virtually traveling with us.

Puchutla Road 175, from Oaxaca to Puerto Angel
The Pochutla road is 230km long, winding and scenic - over 6 hours of cornering, one after the other. Small towns with countless speed reducers and picturesque views of the Sierra Madre. Parking places to enjoy the view or to stop for photos are in vain. Few houses are built on stilts on the slopes.
Day of the Dead, Michoacan
In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is celebrated every year at the beginning of November to welcome, nourish and re-interact with the souls of the dead on their return to the land of the living. It is also called "Noche de Ofrendas a las Animas" or simply "Dia de Muertos".
The villages around Lake Patzcuaro in Michoacan are well known for the elaborate ceremonies of their predominantly indigenous people.
Vehicle Registration USA
The North Carolina Road Traffic Department requires an exhaust emission test and a technical inspection of the vehicle for the annual renewal of our vehicle license plates. Since there are different requirements in the different states, it is difficult for us to meet these requirements on the road. Only states that require these tests have emission test equipment. Once we had to drive 600 KM to get a valid test in another state. The test then only cost 25 dollars!
Now we have legally registered our vehicle through an agency in the state Montana.
Rodeo, a popular sport in Wyoming
We are in America, and that's where the national flag and the singing national anthem of standing Americans, hand on the heart, belong before any major event. The Miss Rodeo, as well as the so-called celebrities, could also not be missing.
What in Spain is bullfighting, is in certain states in America a rodeo. One can be divided opinion. What the cowboys show on the tortured horses, partly without saddle, is courageous and breakneck. It takes a lot of skill to capture the bouncing cattle from the horse with lasso in a few seconds.
Sturgis - Meeting of the iron horses
Since 1939 the "Sturgis Bike Rally" takes place annually in the Black Hills in South Dakota. Every year more than half a million bikers come to the 7'000 inhabitant hick town to party together. The whole state is booming and vibrating like earthquakes, mainly because of the sound of the Harley's. There's really no lack of fun, because bikers are brothers and sisters and together they celebrate as much as possible. Shrill are the impressions: hard steel, hot wheels, old rockers, adventurous women, pierced, tattooed and fat people with their heavy motorcycles.
Among the countless motorcycles is hardly a helmet-wearing driver. Yes, in this state only helmet is required for drivers under 18 years. But those who ride without a helmet must wear glasses to protect their eyes.
