Driving with most of your worldly possessions with you, feels at time liberating, but also frightening. If something were to happen to the vehicle, it’be like losing your car, house, and storage unit in one foul swoop. Luckily that didn’t…

Now we’re getting to the real birthday celebration and some of you may be thinking, “You must be crazy going to Mexico, yes?” Despite all the horrible warnings from the State Department about where not to travel in Mexico, if you had to go, the worst places were probably the States of Jalisco and Michoacán.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/yb6L9qRplfs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

So now you're looking at news with a slight time delay. Following our visit in San Diego and with our truck and car safely stored at our friends’ home, the next day we found ourselves sitting in the waiting room at the Los Angeles airport.

It looked like something in a third-world country.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/NvaOfRxBtFY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

It was the big 7-0, so I was told I could do anything I wanted that was legal. Humm---<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/TON04v4dEfs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Many of our friends have noticed a slight pause in our posts, and have wondered whats up. While we were down in La Paz preparing to take the ferry to the mainland, we got a phone call with a great opportunity.

These spendy, spendy toll roads around the outskirts of Mexico DF are as close as we got to driving in the city.

It was only a matter of time before we were sucked into the vortex that was Mexico City. Although driving around the country of Mexico you soon realise that locally, the city is simply referred to as  ‘Mexico’, or ‘DF’…

In today’s installment, Emma rides a magical unicorn through a field of butterflies and some north going Kiwis meet some south going Kiwis for some classic Seussian confusion. More or less, anyway.   Back when we first started our trip.…
