Download Die Panamericana - in 6 Etappen durch 7 Länder: Auf und by Christian Schwalbe,Wolfgang Schwalbe PDF

By Christian Schwalbe,Wolfgang Schwalbe

Die hier beschriebenen three Touren wurden in Nordamerika durchgeführt. Wir fahren von Anchorage (Alaska, united states) bis nach l. a. Paz (Mexiko).

Wir haben nach unserer Rechnung bei diesen three Reisen auf und entlang der Panamericana ca. 16.551 Kilometer zurück gelegt und neben einer Reisebeschreibung auch 161 Fotos mit eingebunden.

Die Fotos wurden selbst erstellt, ein Kamerateam stand uns - wie bei vielen Berichten der vorliegenden paintings – nicht zur Verfügung.

Damit können unsere Touren nach unserer Meinung durchaus als Vorlagen für „normale“ Menschen dienen, die ebenfalls gerne in weitest gehender Eigenregie nicht ganz alltägliche Reisen durchführen wollen.

Die nächsten three Touren, die von Mexico urban zu Teilen von Mittel- und Südamerika führen, haben wir durchgeführt.

Wir werden bald im Teil 2 darüber berichten.
