A unique time!

Alle Länder, die wir mit dem Bremach besucht haben

Coming soon…

Capital cities and gigantic steaks

Our last days in South America were a good preparation for getting us into the mood for our return to Europe. Wide, green fields with trees here and there and the changeable spring weather brought back images of home. Even shopping in Uruguayan supermarkets, their Read More

Chile and Argentina

On our first day in Chile, we treated ourselves to three urgent needs: showers, laundry service and the internet. The last travel highlight we had in mind was the Altiplano, so, upon arrival in Chile, we booked the return ship for our Bremach for mid-September Read More

Bolivia

Even during our last few minutes in Peru, we had better and better views of Lake Titicaca, and we had barely arrived in Bolivia when the lake actually appeared as it is described: the Andean Sea – an endlessly broad expanse of water, with either Read More

From Cusco to the Lake Titicaca

Some nice villages and their friendly inhabitants made the drive a pleasure. Tanja’s sister Natalie met up with us again In Huamachuco, and we headed off through the Read More

Rough and Almost Impassable Northern Peru

Full of prejudices, we crossed the border – expecting rubbish, petty crime, and unfriendly people from reports we had heard. But, lo and behold, like a wonder, none of this appeared. Even the customs official suffering under the unreliable intranet with us was very friendly Read More
