    Sommer, Sonne, Kaktus and much headwinds

    November 5, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We got up early in order to avoid the heat and get a long stretch done today. We hoped for tailwinds of course. However, reality was different and we had to fight pretty strong headwinds all day. The route wasn't too bad: high plains, some mountains around, a canyon, many cactuses. The area here is VERY dry. You don't find any water except for bottled water in the minimarkets. Therefore, we have to plan days like today carefully, so we always have enough to drink.
    Despite the headwinds, we cycled 162km to a campground on the East side of Baja where we could pitch our tent right at the beach.

    San Felipe

    November 6, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    After a long stretch yesterday, we had an easy day ahead of us. It started with breakfast at the beach, sunrise view included. Afterwards, the owner of the beach camp, Emmanuel, invited us over for a chat, some coffee and a second breakfast (cakes). He convinced us to stay a little longer for a swim in the sea and in the pool.
    We then headed into the town of San Felipe to get something to drink, plan our route and fill up supplies. At the Malecon, the beach promenade, we already bumped into Pam and Barry, our hosts for the night. We had a short chat before we split again to run our errands.
    From San Felipe, we had to cycle another 20km in order to get to the community Mision Los Sahuaros, where Pam and Barry live in a beautiful house. Once we got there, we headed straight to the beach. At night, Nancy and Clark, their neighbours, came over for a game night. We played "joker", a game similar to "sorry" with some special rules and tweaks. It was a great night with lots of fun, great food and interesting conversations.

    San Felipe

    March 4, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Was für ein Unterschied zu einer US amerikanischen Kleinstadt: Begegnet man dort kaum je einem Menschen im Freien, spielt sich das Leben hier auf der Straße ab. Mit lauter Musik, allerlei Leckereien in den offenen Restaurants und an den mobilen Essensständen und viel Tequila und Bier ...
    Wir stehen auf einem schönen Stellplatz direkt am Meer und genießen die Zeit .,,

    Lunch in Mexico

    February 12, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    A 30 min drive from Yuma and we are in Los Algadones, Mexico. 'Genuine' Mexican lunch ... chimichungas, fajitas, tacos. A good experience everything cheap, but what exactly does one need and have room to take home? Oh well, article for a haircut at usd5.00 and chat up a few 'red hatters' we spotted.Read more
