After telling you HOW do we sleep in our car, now it’s time to tell the story: WHERE. Since I have received quite some questions, maybe it’s good to put it into one post. 

Guatemala: this river we had to cross

The smell of Guatemala

Guatemala Likes

From the west to the east, from Pacific to Caribbean sea, sometimes for 3 days without asphalt… Guatemala is not only those “places-to-be” from the travel guides but much much more, somewhere between one village and another.

Adiós Mexico!

Of course not visiting all the places we planned, and of course much later than we planned – we are leaving Mexico. Surprisingly, without any problem on the Guatemalan border!!

San Cristobal the Coolest

Mexico Likes

Cool, because situated between hills in a small valley. Cool, because very walkable and likable with all the small cafes (first time we felt Berlin’s atmoshpere). Cool, because of all the Maya’s culture in the city.

Buying the car in Mexico – done!

To become a happy owner of the car in Mexico you must go through four steps: finding a proper car, checking if it is really a proper car, getting money to buy this car, registering the car. And each of those steps can be a fight – especially if you are a foreigner.
