      Jericho Beach

      July 24, 2016 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

      Und schon ist unser Roadtrip auch schon wieder vorbei 😮 Wir vermissen die wunderschönen Rocky Mountains, die Übernachtungen im Auto, die Plumpsklos, die Tiere, die schönen Seen, etc jetzt schon ! 😞
      Aber wir sind wieder heile im wunderschönen Vancouver angekommen und haben die ersten Nächte im Hostel direkt am Jericho Beach verbracht und uns etwas von der Fahrerei der letzten 2 Wochen erholt 😊🌞🌴
      Highlight: weder unser Steinschlag, Wischwasserfehlermeldung oder Ölwechselfehlermeldung wurden von der Autovermietung entdeckt (nach den Worten "okay girls, you're good" sind wir wahrscheinlich in Rekordzeit aus dem Parkhaus gelaufen) 💪 Nach circa 3000 km Fahrt haben wir scheinbar unser kleines weisses Mädchen-Auto etwas überfordert mit nicht geplanten Schotter Wegen usw 😅🙈

      July 28, 2017 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

      Es war schon ca. 19.00 Uhr, als wir uns durch den Verkehr in die Stadt gequält haben und endlich den Kitsilano Beach erreicht. Jörg besucht später noch kurz den Plattenladen Zoolu Records, die haben hier länger geöffnet, der aber wohl mittlerweile mehr Second Hand Platten hat.
      Dann mussten wir noch einen Stellplatz für unsere letzte Nacht mit dem Camper finden.

      Last night with Mounti at the seaside

      July 29, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

      Jörg hatte den Traum, irgendwo westlicher am Strand oder mit Blick zum Wasser zu stehen mit unserem Mounti. Und das ist uns tatsächlich gelungen.
      Wir haben eine ruhige Straße gefunden, die uns einen Zugang zum Meer verschaffte in höherer Lage. Da haben wir dann ein Picknick auf ner Bank gemach und konnten aufs Wasser schauen bis die Sonne unterging.

      Jean Beaty Park heißt die kleine Grünfläche!

      Dann sind wir schnell im Camper verschwunden, damit uns keiner entdeckt. Wir haben dann aber noch ein anderes Päarchen gesehen, die auch im Auto gepennt haben. Wir waren dann nicht die einzigen mit dieser Idee. In diesem netten Wohngebiet haben wir sehr gut geschlafen. Alles gelungen würde ich sagen!

      On Our Way Home

      December 3, 2021 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

      You and I have memories
      Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

      Two of us wearing raincoats
      Standing solo
      In the sun
      You and me chasing paper
      Getting nowhere
      On our way back home
      We're on our way home
      We're on our way home
      We're going home

      It might sound odd to hear that we’re going home as we depart Vancouver for Chiang Mai, but there is nowhere else on earth that makes us feel so much at home as that northern Thai city.

      It’s been 639 days since Brenda and I have been on an international flight and four years since we last set foot on Thai soil. The pandemic has confined us first to our city, then to our province and lastly to Canada. Finally, we feel that we’ve completed our sentence and are once again free to travel the world. I should state that the fact we are both fully vaccinated has eased our trepidation of venturing afar despite the news of the Omicron mutation of the virus. That and the inconceivable thought of spending yet another winter in cool and rainy Vancouver .

      In fact, the number of hoops we had to jump through, the reams of paperwork we had to complete, the brief quarantine we must complete once we arrive in Thailand and the nervous anticipation of waiting for our Covid test results, all attest to just how eager we are to resume our globetrotting.

      As we make our way to YVR for our 1:30 PM departure, the temperature outside is a chilly 2 °C.
      See ya in March, Vancouver.

      Here comes the sun, do-do-do-do.

      On The Road Again

      May 16, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

      Vancouver is so beautiful and the weather is so perfect at this time of the year, leaving her is not an easy thing to do. Nonetheless, the lure of bountiful amounts of seasonal, perfectly ripe, tropical fruit is strong enough to draw these two vegans half way around the world to Thailand.

      Every time Brenda and I visit Thailand over the winter months, our friends who live there go on endlessly about how much better the fruit is in May and June. According to one of our acquaintances, the winter mangoes, which we find succulent and delicious, are so tasteless she refuses to buy them.

      Last winter we were unable to leave Vancouver while the renovations to our condo, which were scheduled to be completed by October 31, dragged on well into the New Year. Being deprived of our annual escape from Canadian winters, we decided we'd switch things up this year and do a warm weather getaway.

      The plan is to spend a couple of days in Bangkok, where we'll celebrate Brenda's birthday, then travel south to Koh Samui to spend a week on the beach and then slow travel north around the gulf of Thailand up into the area known as Thailand's fruit bowl. All the exotic tropical fruits mentioned earlier will be at the height of their season and we can't wait to gorge ourselves on the king and queen of fruit, durian and mangosteen. We're hoping that our hotel won't have any restriction on bringing the notoriously odorific durian into our room, as is often the case in many areas of Asia.

      So off we go to YVR for our 10:35 flight to Bangkok with stops in Seattle and Tokyo. We'll arrive in Bangkok Thursday evening at 11:00PM after losing 14 hours in time zone changes. A long trek, but it'll be well worth it.
