Beached at last

April 17, 2014
13.4.14. You are absolutely right, Sally and Vince has now come round to your way of thinking. Yesterday he had half a guineapig. Crispy fried. He was extremely disappointed with the lack of meat on it. I had a massive portion of Lomo Saltado. Fortunately for Vince I couldn't eat it all. So he got most of my chips. Good job as, predictably, he was still hungry. Checked out at 12, leaving bags at hostal - bonus. Weather became lovely and sunny. So we were able to do just what I wanted - sit in...

Bus bother

April 13, 2014 - Ayacucho, Peru
Hi Graham - Cusco can be very expensive, yes. But we found somewhere cheap to stay and somewhere very cheap to eat. We stayed in Arrieros Hostel, just up the hill from San Blas church. Ask around for it or Google it. I have just put a review on Trip Advisor. One flight of steps down from the hostal and turn to the right is a cafe serving 2 course menus for 6 soles. And you can get good quality organic food from the main market. There are a couple of supermarkets too. Booze-wise, best to go to...

Just a quickie

April 9, 2014 - Cusco, Peru
As we are back in Cusco and the internet is fast. We totally recommend Cusco, Graham. You will love it. Not much not to like.   Alan - you had cocOa. We had coca. That O makes all the difference.   Meet me at the Fort: Not a sentence you hear every day. But that is what Vince said to me this morning, in Ollantytambo.  We were climbing around the - free to visit - ruins. Yes folks, more climbing. All the activity has left me with a raging appetite. We went to the local market and had 2...

Coca

April 8, 2014
Coca tea doesn't really have any effect, Graham. Coca leaves do, if you chew enough of them. They give you energy, heightened awareness and, apparently, stop you feeling hungry. We went to the Coca Museum in La Paz. The indiginous (spelling -sorry) people used the leaves well, to give them the strength to work hard. Then the Yanks came along and made cocaine and it all went a bit wrong. Vince and I did drink a lot of coca liqueor when we were on the salt tour. It acts a bit like speed....

Arno Bay S.A

April 4, 2014 - Cowell, Australia
Well we have finally left Port Gibbon on the Eyre Peninsula and arrived at Arno Bay two days ago. We are camping at the back of the pub here for a cost of $20 for three nights and with the $20 we get a $10 voucher back to spend any where in the town. So all up it cost only $10 for three nights here. The publican at the pub is very friendly and the meals are great, we had chicken schnitzel with garlic prawn sauce with 6 good size prawns for a cost of $10 each. yum yum. Today we walked around...

From Moquegua to Cusco

April 4, 2014 - Cusco, Peru
11 hours' kip. Fantastic hot shower. Beautiful weather. Back okay. Stomach okay. Breakfast for 2 pounds ten for the both of us - tea and beef roll for Vince, milky coffee and avocado roll for me. On the way to the other side of town to find out about collectivos (minibuses) we found guineapig on the menu. One pound 60 for guineapig, rice and potatoes in a stew. Jo and Ellie please note - the guineapig's leg and foot was very visible! I had half a forkful. Tasted like the dark part of turkey...

Wir habens geschafft!

April 1, 2014
    Nächste Woche sind wir schon zwei Monate verheiratet und ich habe immer noch keinen Blog-Beitrag geschrieben. Asche auf mein Haupt! Aber da nun am Freitag auch endlich die Bilder von unserem Photographen gekommen sind, habe ich nun keine Ausrede mehr. Ja, was kann man über die eigene Hochzeit schreiben? Am 08.02.14 war es nun endlich soweit, der Tag auf den wir seid drei Jahren gewarteten haben, war nun da. Ich habe euch ein paar Bilder eingefügt, dass ihr einen Eindruck von unserem...

Haslam SA March 23rd - 31st 2014

March 31, 2014 - Smoky Bay, Australia
We have just spent the last week at the small seaside town of Haslam. It is 70km east of Ceduna and only has a few houses/shacks, a boat ramp, a jetty and a free camp. It was a good base to be able to visit the other local towns of Streaky Bay, Smokey Bay and Ceduna. The camp area can handle about 15 vans comfortably but had over 20 some nights. A flushing toilet and a town water tap made the stay quite easy. The weather for the most part was quite nice with the wind picking up in the...

Costly Chile. Hello again Peru.

March 31, 2014 - Moquegua, Peru
I would be very surprised if the following doesn't contain several mistakes as I am pooped and my brain is turned to "Off". So apologies beforehand.   In fact, Graham, Coroico was even dodgier than I suggested. Vince told me that the 4 men actually climbed out of the truck and accosted him verbally. So he had a narrower escape than I thought. Good job he's excellent at acting stupid. Just shows that a moneybelt would have been a dangerous thing.   Thanks for your comment Jonny....

The Purest of Pure Joy

March 28, 2014
What a week. The first True Impact Team has come and gone just like that.  We had a great time minstering together and God definitely worked through each and every person on that team.  It was a blessing and pleasure to be a part of it. Part of what the team brought with them were knapsacks from each child's sponsor.  Susie and Andy Stewart (the founders of True Impact), sent out drawstring bags to all of the sponsors to fill up for their children and brought all of them to hand out to the...

The story so far - double La Paz

March 23, 2014 - La Paz, Bolivia
In La Paz we found a decent room within budget and with hot shower. We managed to get haircuts for 2 pounds 50 pence each. That was great value for me. Vince wasn't impressed, though. He says he usually pays far less when he's abroad. We went to a micro brewery. There was one very good brew which tasted like English real ale. Somehow it was both hoppy and malty.   From La Paz we travelled to Coroico. The journey only took 2 hrs 30 mins in a minibus. It cost us under 2 pounds each. But it...

Tumby Bay and Port Lincoln 13 – 23 March 2014

March 22, 2014 - Port Lincoln, Australia
We said our fond goodbyes to our friends at Port Gibbon and drove the 100km south to Tumby Bay. We decide to stay at the RV Park which is a cheap camp area only 1 km from Tumby Bay. It has water and a dump point so we were set. This would have to be one of the most beautiful towns that we have visited. The foreshore is grassed, has bbq’s, toilets, playgrounds, a big jetty and the most amazing coloured water on the planet. We had a good look around and visited the Lookout (fantastic...

Pray for a Heart of Appreciation, Love, and Trust

March 19, 2014 - Jinja, Uganda
March Madness is definitely here in Uganda…and these past four days are kind of the "calm before the storm."  Much of this last month for me is going to involve being a part of two mission teams that are coming to Uganda through True Impact Ministries.  The first team arrives here Thursday evening and stays for a week, and then the second team will arrive on April 2 and 3 and stay until I leave and come home!  Needless to say, there is much preparation to do for both teams coming, as...

Klettern in San Luis

March 19, 2014 - San Luis Potosí, Mexico
Hola, in San Luís habe ich gelernt, wie gerne ich in der Natur klettern gehe. Ich bin nicht sehr gut, aber ich geniesse es sehr. Um mal einen kleinen Eindruck zu bekommen, wie das da so ausschaut, moechte ich euch dieses Video hier zeigen. Ein paar der Leute, die es gemacht haben, kenne ich :) Viel Spass damit! An manchen Stellen wird ein bisschen viel gefachsimpelt, aber wenn man weiterschaut gibt es noch ein paar Bilder aus San Luís, der Stadt :)...

{2014 March} Book Review: Between Heaven and Earth

March 17, 2014 - East Jordan, Michigan, United States
  I received Between Heaven and Earth from Bethany House for free, in return for my opinion on this book. Between Heaven and Earth is written by Steve Berger and Published by Bethany House. My overall thoughts, I actually really enjoyed reading this book and proved to be very insightful and beautifully written. What I really loved about this book is that it's written around personal stories. It is not written as your typical self-help christian books. I honestly loved how this...

Fortunately and Unfortunately - the pros and cons

March 16, 2014 - Copacabana, Bolivia
Thanks for the comments. Always apppreciated. Yes, Rose, people were surfing down the dunes. Funniest was one lad who climbed to the top, sat on his board, fell off, and became a laughing stock as his board gracefully sped down the dune all by itself.   I've heard that about guinea pig, Sally. Think Vince will probably try some when we get to Cusco, which is writhing with it, apparently. I will have one teeny forkful. I can't get excited about it at all.   We should be able to meet you in...

Port Gibbon SA 27 Feb – 13 March 2014

March 13, 2014 - Cowell, Australia
After more than 2 weeks at Point Lowly we moved on southwards. We have spent the last 2 weeks at Port Gibbon, a free camp (actually is free) south of Cowell on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It is a great free camp with drinking water taps, dump point and toilets. There would be about 15 vans at the camp most days and a beer garden that everyone meets at every afternoon at 5pm. The beautiful white sandy beach is just a short walk down the stairs. The water was warm most days and...

Frühling? No way!

March 10, 2014 - Toronto, Canada
Liebe Sonnenanbeter, Wie ich hörte und auch im Rahmen von vielen sonnigen Zusendungen sehen konnte, ist bei euch der Frühling ausgebrochen. Ich will auch :( Wir knacken diese Woche laut Wetterbericht erstmalig die +3℃-Grenze. Ist doch auch schon mal was! Leider macht mein Laptop zur Zeit etwas schlapp, daher so wenig News aus Toronto. Dabei war einiges los. Ich bin nämlich nicht mehr Franzi, sondern ab heute nur noch "Frau Gellrich" - am Dienstag habe ich meine erste Unterrichtseinheit...

Cooler

March 9, 2014 - Arequipa, Peru
We had a 10 hour bus journey to Arequipa. It was alright. We had to take an expensive bus, which we don't usually do. About 20 pounds each, which is unheard of for us. But there seemed to be no easy way around it. Anyway, the bus was incredibly smooth and very comfortable. And the loo was okay. We were going along some very bendy mountain roads and I liked the feel of the side to side movement. It made me sleep. Good job the loo had a grab rail in it though. I am glad I am not a bloke. How...

Port Gibbon S.A

March 7, 2014 - Cowell, Australia
  Hello every one we are in Port Gibbon S.A  just out of Cowell on the Eyre Peninsula. There are about 15 other campers here camping, the other day John and Peter and Zac (Peter's Son) went out in the boat and came home with 36 Blue swimmers. We had fresh crab spring rolls which i made and crab patties that Tammy made. Had a great happy hour last night as we had two young back packers in one was from England his name is Domanic and the other from Holland, had no idea at all what he was...

Sand and lots of it

March 6, 2014 - Nazca, Peru
We went by bus for 3 hours with one bus change from Cerro Azul to Huacachina, which is an oasis. It's quite amazing, really, because there's nowhere else like it. It is a proper, albeit tourist, town with a lake in the middle and great big sandhills all around. Despite my complaining abut climbing volcanoes when we were in Central America, I did actually have a go at climbing the sandhills. And I was successful. "Not bad for an old bird", said Vince. We found a hotel for a tenner....

Sun & Fun

February 1, 2014 - Yuma, Arizona, United States
Palm Springs did not disappoint.  It was not quite as warm as usual, but mid and high 70's for Christmas and New Year's was okay.  Our campsite was across the road from the pickleball courts making it convenient to play.  Only a few RV parks have courts, so we play whenever we can. We did a couple hikes NE of the Salton Sea.  One hike was an oasis and the other at a slot canyon. On our way to the Yuma area, we stayed a couple nights at Niland, CA, on the Salton Sea.  This time we were...

Afrikanen wonen in bomen en groot marathonfeest!

March 3, 2014 - Moshi, Tanzania
Mijn collega, Mama Joyse vertelt: 'In de jaren 80 ben ik in Japan geweest voor een conferentie, gezondheidsmedewerkers uit ontwikkelingslanden werden uitgenodigd om hier aan deel te nemen. Dat was een hele ervaring, met name omdat veel Japanners nog nooit iemand met een donker gelaat hadden gezien. Er werd regelmatig even in mijn arm geknepen of ik kreeg een aai over mijn hoofd. Op een dag zag ik dat een man me lang aan zat te kijken, na een poosje vroeg hij: 'Is het echt waar dat jullie in...

Dancing Before Him

March 3, 2014 - Jinja, Uganda
It's so hard to believe that I only have a month and a week left here in this place.  The True Impact team comes in just a couple of weeks.  While I'm so so SO excited for them to come, I have also almost been dreading the time just because I know that it's going to be the time when I start counting down my final days.  I've started to feel more and more at home in this country, and God is definitely putting it on my heart at least right now to come back, and much longer than for 5 months...

La Vida Mexicana - 2

March 1, 2014 - San Luis Potosí, Mexico
Hola, ich bin mal wieder in Mexiko angekommen. Hier werde ich in den nächsten 6 Monaten meine Masterarbeit schreiben. Kreativerweise werde ich wieder in San Luis Potosi sein, da, wo alles begann. Ich bin vor 4 Tagen in Mexiko angekommen und ich muss sagen, besser hätte es garnicht losgehen können. Nachdem ich insgesamt ca. 26 Stunden unterwegs war, kam ich um 3 Uhr nachts in Queretaro an. Ich bin von Deutschland nach Cancun und dann mit einem anderen Flugzeug nach Mexiko City geflogen. Von...
