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, Southern Africa as well as North- and Central America.
Right now we are again on the move in South 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.

On the road in northwestern Argentina. Carne, Torrontes, Malbec y gente muy amable.
Through the land of the Dinosaurs
Argentina, about 450 KM north of Mendoza - The partly bizarre landscape in the north of Argentina has already fascinated the prehistoric giants. Lunar landscapes, gorges, canyons, high deserts and fertile wine valleys are the highlights of this area. A visit to the provincial park Ischigualasto Provincial Park (Valle de la Luna) is an absolute must to see.
Travel friends we met 16 years ago in Bariloche bought a plot of land near San Luis 12 years ago. Both of them built a large, beautiful house on it, mainly on their own. The property is huge by our standards at 27,000 m2.
Shipping Motorhome from Brunswick, USA to Zarate, Argentina
On March 28, 2022, we brought our Sprinter to the port as requested by the shipping company; 6 business days prior to the ship's departure.
An extremely large number of papers and certifications were required in advance.
Doctor's Office or Mercedes Sprinter Motorhome
Since we have been on the road with the Mercedes Sprinter, we have been asked several times a day about our vehicle, or praised by other motorists with arm out the window and thumbs up. It seems that many Americans pay more attention to our little vehicle than to their many thousands of huge RVs with cars towing.
When we took a short break in a parking lot on the beach, an older person spoke to us and asked, probably because of the Swiss cross, whether this was a mobile Doctor's Office!
Money exchange at the flower shop
After our entry from Mexico to the USA we still had Mexican Pesos. We wanted to have these changed in an official exchange office, but this was not possible. We were referred to a Mexican gift store around the corner. In fact, inside this store was a small, segregated money counter.
