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- and Central 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.
Edy and Brigitte
Antigua is located in the highlands of Guatemala and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its colonial ruins, such as half-decayed churches, monasteries and buildings with collapsing pastel facades. Colorful houses decorate the street and a breathtaking panorama of still active volcanoes surround the city.
Saints on the street and temporary works of art
In the former Guatemalan capital Antigua, Semana Santa, Easter is celebrated very big. Already from Ash Wednesday, during the Holy Weeks, the 40-day Lent, the city offers the people a special spectacle with colorful "alfombras" (carpets) and the extraordinary processions. Spanish missionaries brought this Catholic tradition to Central America.
Traveling around with Guatemala's fine drops
The production of Zacapa Rum in Guatemala has a long tradition. Allegedly the Mayas have already produced a drink similar to rum. The high-quality sugar cane is grown at an altitude of approx 220m. The production is exclusive and only the first essence "Virgin Sugar Cane Honey" of the pressing is used. The aging of the distillates in old oak barrels in the mountains at 2’300m altitude refines the taste and gives the Zacapa Rum its special note.
Taste: soft and intense with sweet notes of vanilla, honey and sherry as well as spicy notes of caramel and oak wood. Intense, voluminous and round in the mouth.
Belize, the small country between jungle and corals
Belize lies like an island between the Caribbean Sea and Guatemala and the capital Belmopan is unknown. Since Belize was an English colonial territory under the state name British Honduras until 1981, the official language is not Spanish, but English. Garifunas (dark-skinned Creole population), Latinos, Europeans (many Mennonites), Americans, Chinese etc. live closely together here.
Chamula and the church Templo de San Juan
Chamula is an independent and autonomous Tzotzil community located 10 km outside of San Cristobal de las Casas, in Chiapas. The inhabitants live according to their own laws and traditions, for example, they still live polygamous. The Tzotzil strictly defend their culture and religion against outside influences and have retained much of their culture despite the oppression of the Catholic Church and the Spanish.
