    Was hier so kreucht ...

    June 29, 2017 in Mexico

    Wir sind noch einmal ein Stück in den Süden gefahrenund finden hier, auf nur noch etwa 500 m über dem Meer, noch mal wärmere Temperaturen als im Hochland. Dementsprechend gibt es auch wieder eine große Vielfalt an. ...

    Last Coastal Views

    January 17, 2016 in Mexico

    We rode through some huge coconut and banana plantations on the way to Manzanillo, where we met Angela and returned some keys she had left in a bathroom along the road the day before. We had no idea Manzanillo was such a big port town, so despite the beautiful beaches leading into town we didn't find the city itself very attractive, and just pushed on over a big hill and down the wide and flat cuota highway to Cuhuatlan for one last night on the beach. The powerful reflecting waves didn't make it a great swimming beach, but once again we camped for free behind a restaurant and savored the warm evening and beautiful sunset.Read more

    Colima State

    January 18, 2016 in Mexico

    After much debate we finally decided to leave the comfortable coastal life to experience inland Mexico. We knew this would involve a lot of climbing as Guadalajara is at 1500 m, so tried to prepare ourselves for a couple of big uphill days. We also decided to take the toll road instead of some narrower, hillier options to get to Guadalajara in the hope of reducing the grade and number of hills we had to climb. Things started off well with plentiful sweet shops along the road where we sampled many of the different forms of sweet coconut bars. At one point we rode over a bridge and got a good look at all the stages of brick making - from digging sand out of the river with an excavator to mixing and firing the bricks. We were very excited when we reached a watermelon stand outside of Colima (City) as we were running low on water, so we sat and chatted with the owner for a while and each devoured half a watermelon. The Colima Volcano came into view, and then we were surprised to see it erupt; we thought we were really lucky to have witnessed this powerful force, but we soon discovered that this was nearly an hourly occurrence and none of the locals seemed to notice. At some point during our climbing we also entered sugar country - we rode by fields and fields of sugarcane and started being passed by many heavily laden trucks hauling the canes to be processed.Read more
