We arrived in Seydisfjordur and getting off the ferry and through customs was quick and easy. No checking what food (and how much wine) had been brought into the country (we hid the dried mushrooms for nothing!) and covid/vaccination formalities were already completed on board. Apparently all passengers had negative PCR tests which were administered … More Into the Wind
Laurent and I are making the best of our self-confinement which we see in some ways as being a blessing in disguise. During our 3 months on the road we have found ourselves repeatedly frustrated with the lack of time we have had to dedicate to simple things such as reading a book or watching … More Scenic lookouts, graveyards, and mystical valleys
Laurent was a bit hasty in mentioning our return to Peru later in the year……..since we did not yet cover our last days in the country! After getting the oil changed and a few other minor truck adjustments (there is never really an end to the vehicle maintenance….sigh), we left Arequipa and headed back to … More Onwards to Chile!
Pas de séquence Adios pour cette fois car nous ne quittons le Pérou que temporairement. Nous y reviendrons dans quelques mois par le coté bolivien des andes. A trés bientôt donc!
Nous sommes au Chili depuis plusieurs jours déjà et nous n’avons pas encore terminer le chapitre Pérou……la raison en est simple un disque dur récalcitrant et la perte d’une partie de nos photos.

Stay tuned for exciting video clips! We will also update some of the older articles with videos as … More Coming soon……….videos!
The amazing flight over the Nasca lines was a hard act to follow. We were therefore not prepared for the spectacular scenery that awaited us along the southern peruvian coast on the way to the country’s second largest city, Arequipa. It was absolutely breathtaking with enormous sand dunes practically falling into the vivid blue ocean … More Along the southern coast to Arequipa
Après avoir visité Lima et laissé installer un relais pour stabiliser notre installation éclectique solaire nous avons repris la route tôt samedi sur les conseils d’Anne et d’Emmanuel afin d’éviter la migration estivale des Liméniens vers les plages du sud. Après quelques kilomètres seulement le désert reprend immédiatement ses droits, encore et encore sable, rocaille, … More De Lima à Nasca
After a slightly confusing entry into Peru, as described by Laurent in his earlier post, we landed on the beach behind the hostel Swiss Wassi. Incredible sunsets and good company (thanks Melba)! The beach at this campground is little piece of paradise after the surprising drive down from the border. Surprising for different reasons : First … More Northern Peru to Lima
