Soon, already in two weeks the exhibition of our pictures from the Central America trip will start to hang in the shop Globetrotter, in Berlin. For the whole March everybody can come and watch them and at the end, on 26th March evening, we will have a big slide-show with stories. Today we made a Read More
After cloudless sky above beaches in Belize – Honduras mountains seems to be really depressive. You are literally driving through the clouds and every small sunbeam between cloud and another cloud is welcome with family songs.
And here we go: the real border for the Family Without Borders. Even if we were prepared for this moment already on the border with Guatemala, then on the border with Belize, then on the border with Honduras – and we managed – now it’s being really sad.
– But why you call it “butterfly”?! – that was the only question Hanna had after this meeting. Me and Tom speak English with each other, but girls understand everything. Seems like the flying butter didn’t make any sense for Hanna, when she was watching those amazing wings.
We have checked the corners of Honduras really quite well. Also because we couldn’t cross some roads – so we had to go totally around. And that’s how it happened that we ate ‘pollo con papas’ (chicken with fries) in: Omoam, San Pedro Sula, Comayagua, La Paz, Santa Barbara, La Entrada, Marcalla, Copan Ruinas, Gracias Read More
We are in Honduras! And what is the national bird of Honduras? The amazing Scarlet Macaws (parrots): the bird-dream of every photographer.

First impression from some jungle road: a crazy mirage or they are shooting a movie? Do you remember “Dr. Queen” series? Or “Little House on the Prairie”? Women in long, simple dresses and bonnets, men in denim overalls and hats. Those are the Mennonites, religious community and a much more exciting topic than beaches and Read More
– Aarite, Bro? – our first hours in Belize were kind of funny. Everything sound a bit like a joke: suddenly super open, friendly and talkative people. A big change from shy and distanced Maya people in Guatemala. But that was only the first impression, Belize is like a strong drink made of very different Read More
