Los Cabos – The Southern tip of Baja

After our days in La Ventana, the next thing on our agenda was driving around the southern tip of Baja – Los Cabos, known as a place of retreat and resort paradise for richAmericans. At first, we had planned to drive around the entireEast Cape since it is supposed to be especially beautiful. The first part of the stretch, however, turned out Read More

Heading south along serene beaches and across wild mountains

Shortly after we had reached Baja Sur, the southern part of the peninsula Baja California, we took a special detour to San Francisco de la Sierra. Long ago, the people living here far above the surrounding desert immortalized their impressions in cave paintings. Fortunately for Read More

We had toured the Rockies for a few days without seeing the image put into our heads by magazines and advertisements. Then, on our way north through Montana, we enjoyed the views of high mountains on the horizon so much that we decided to take Read More

Yellowstone – high mountains, wild animals and endless wilderness

After our long drive through the Wild West, it was time to see some mountains again. We took the Beartooth Pass and set a new high mark with our Bremach: the elevation of the pass is more than 3300m (a little more than 2 miles) Read More

From the Plains to the Mountains

We have done lots of driving since we left Chicago because we wanted to get across the Great Plains quickly since there is not much to see and do there. The vast expanse of the Great Plains was, however, very impressive – only fields and Read More
