Travelling the USA and Canada




Welcome to North America

When we flew to North America together for the first time in 2009 – there were hardly any attractive destinations left for us in Europe – we had no idea that this fascinating continent wouldn’t let us go any more. The endless vastness of the prairies, the beauty of the mountains and lakes, the incredible diversity of flora and fauna as well as the cities and towns have captivated us from the very first day. After about 20 trips and 80,000 km (50.000 miles) in rental cars across the USA and Canada, we have probably seen more of both countries than most Americans or Canadians.

We watched the waves of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean and surrounded the Great Lakes. We hiked the cool paths of the Rocky Mountains and followed the trails of Death Valley in scorching heat. Marmots, rattlesnakes, wapitis, a few bears and even a wolverine (yes, they really exist) crossed our path. We visited the Google Campus, Boeing’s factory floors, the first Amazon Go store and Leonard Cohen’s grave. We followed the tracks of those Germans who found a new home in Texas, Wisconsin or Nebraska; and more than once we thoughtfully faced the memorials of both World War I and II. All those places tell us stories that we are happy to share with you. Get inspired by our travels!
