waypoints - on worldtrip since 2005

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.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2019Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2019

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.

Andersen LevelerAndersen Leveler

Sophisticated leveling aids

A traveler showed us his special tools, which he used to leveling his vehicle in the longitudinal and transverse axes. The good thing about the Andersen Levelers is, that you're not limited to just two height levels of wedges, or you don't have to guess how many blocks will do the job. These things quite simply allow a stepless height adjustment. Recently, thanks to Amazon and UPS, we are also in possession of the clever compensation aids.
We simply put our new, red things in front of or behind our tires and we drive on them until the desired height is reached. Then secure with the small wedge, and ready...

Kennecott Copper MineKennecott Copper Mine

Kennecott Copper Mine near Bingham

The large coloured scree slope of the copper mine can be seen from far away. From the mine's visitor car park a shuttle bus will take you up to the top. The view of and into the largest hole in the world overwhelms you – 1200 meter deep, 4500 meter wide, in operation since 1906. The monsters of trucks with a capacity of almost 200 tons, tire costs 60,000 Francs a piece, drive around with their loads on the slopes carved out of the rock. They transport the copper-containing rocs a few miles for further processing.

No fear of contact - Beach Life in Mexico

During Holidays and weekends at beaches you will find tent next to tent with an adequate noise level. A certain noise tolerance is required. Bus companies make good business with the rural population, who take them from inland to the beach and back for a day with their children and toys. Even on old, rickety pickups, up to 15 people including cooking utensils, food and drinks are easily transported. After arrival at the beach, these people cut foodstuffs and cook for the large families. Here having children still works conservatively, well Catholic, because the Chinese 1-child policy has not got around yet. Nor do the indirect environmental consequences.
Occasionally beach vendors try to sell their goods to the people. It understands itself automatically that nearly each group competes at the same time for the strongest background music with the music boxes they bring along.

International Museum of the BaroqueInternational Museum of the Baroque

Baroque Museum and Baroque Churches in Puebla

Puebla, founded in 1531, is the largest and best preserved Baroque city on the American continent and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Not only Baroque art is shown, also insights into the Baroque society of the 17th and 18th centuries are granted.
