We spent about 3 hours at the border between Honduras and Nicaragua, but since we got stuck there over lunch time, we were sitting doing nothing from noon till 1pm. We proceeded to the nearby town of Esteli where we stopped for the night. We didn’t clue into the fact that we were crossing the […]

Today we crossed over from Guatamala to Honduras. What an ordeal! And what a ton of money! We do not plan to spend any real time in Honduras, as we would rather get to Costa Rica and spend a bunch of time hanging out there. The border crossing was a bit of a zoo. After […]

The trouble with these ‘officials’ is that whatever […]

This crossing from USA to Tijuana was quite simple, though it caught us a bit by surprise. After all the messing about, the whole process took us about 2 hours. From San Diego on the I-5 South, you start seeing border signs about 2 miles prior. All of a sudden, the border appears. Expecting to […]

Welcome to Bolivia

Eager to reach Bolivia, we zipped past Lake Titicaca and dashed for the Bolivia border.  But, we were stopped one last time by the Peruvian police, and also had to navigate our way through a protest,

Welcome to Peru

A mid-morning border crossing from Ecuador to Peru proved to be very stress-free and relatively quick.  We spent about 45 minutes standing around waiting for the boss to arrive to sign our Peru vehicle importation permit.
