Aug 13th, 2010:

In just 4 days, we will celebrate one year of life on the road - went by so quick and yet we feel we’re just now settling into this lifestyle. Onwards we go into desolate Namibia - hope to be in Botswana (and with Internet) in about 2 weeks.

July 21st, 2010:

May 26 - Jun 16th, 2010:

Landed on African soil. Had a blast in Cape town for 2 weeks. Watched the first world cup game at the brand new Cape Town Stadium. Finally bused out to a beautiful surfing town Jeffery’s Bay near Port Elizabeth for our next soccer game.

We’ve published our Cochamo Horse trekking album -- our best for the whole trip so far!

While living in Buenos Aires we’re trying to catch up with our huge backload of travelog pics. Up first: a trio of albums from Colombia back in Dec. Check out Manizales, the Termales and our drive out.

May 1st, 2010:

After 8 months of constant travel (never sleeping in the same bed consecutively for more than 5 nights) we’re winding down South America by renting out an apartment and staying put in Buenos Aires for a month. After that: southern Africa baby!!!

Apr 19-28th, 2010:

Welcomed our first visitor in over 6 months - had a blast with Hui exploring Buenos Aires, Iguazu and even a bit of nearby Uruguay.

Apr 13th, 2010:

Yay - our friend Hui is visiting us in Buenos Aires on the 19th!

Steering rack finally arrived after long delay at the Chilean customs!

South Peruvian Coast Drive Album published - enjoy the pics.

Apr 1-7th, 2010:

While waiting for the parts, we took a weeklong awesome horse-trekking from Cochamo, Chile to El Bolson, Argentina. Perhaps the best thing we did on the whole trip! Definitely the one thing that made us feel most bad-ass and hard core!!!

Mar 29th, 2010:

TianMa stopped making left turns. Dealer told us a new steering rack is needed. Had to ship one in from the States (as costly as it sounds).

Mar 29th, 2010:

We’ve finally made it to Patagonia and are driving south on Carretera Austral. We were not affected by the big earthquake two nights ago at all, though feel sad for the people that were. Thanks to those that checked up on us.

Feb13th, 2010:

Saddest day on the trip - we were robbed in a restaurant in Villarrica, Chile. Lost all our expensive camera equipment, all the pictures from Argentina and Ognen’s beloved GPS.

Jan 27th, 2010:

Three days after having to tow Tianma to the VW dealer in Jujuy, Argentina, we are finally back on the road.

Jan 23rd, 2010:

Tianma refused to start up at the YPF gas station in Tilcara the morning after we arrived at Argentina following 3 straight days of hard driving through northern Chile.
