What a great life we lead! We slept in a bit this morning after the fun of the 2nd annual La Ventana hot dog crawl and a few too many cocktails. The sun was peeking its way over the horizon on the Sea of Cortez and it was just chilly enough to really enjoy our cup of...
CROSSING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN SO2-Ep2

CROSSING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN SO2-Ep2

  Getting vehicles across high seas has always been a headache for overlanders. In our case, this was the first issue we had to solve since crossing the Atlantic is the only way to get to South America from Europe. The freight company of Grimaldi was the solution...
Monochrome Memories: USA

Monochrome Memories: USA

Our journey across the United States took us 179 days. Over 12000 Miles. 700 gallons of fuel. 3 gearboxes. Having now spent three months enjoying everything Mexico has to offer and with time to reflect on our time there I wanted to take those numbers and reduce them...
Ontzettend Groen (1701)

Ontzettend Groen (1701)

Terug naar Zuid Amerika ​Met een vertraging van 3.5 uur door een technisch probleem op Schiphol komen we in Lima aan. Afgezien van de confiscatie van drie appels en een mandarijn komen we ook goed het land in en snel bij het hostel. De vertraging is uiteindelijk...
1000days, 100000k’s

1000days, 100000k’s

Ridgecrest is a town that primarily exists for the purpose of supporting the extensive Air Force base community on its doorstep. Anyway, we needed a tyre repair as it would seem that we can drive off-road over all sorts of nasty shale and rocks and the only two...
Planny Plan Part IV

Planny Plan Part IV

We think we might have a planny plan! While recently visiting my parents in Michigan, we spent countless hours trying to track down a winter rental, in a mountain town, for a season of backcountry snowboarding. As restless nomads, it’s hard for us to commit to...
A Year of Coddiwomple

A Year of Coddiwomple

In 2015 my word for the year ahead was transformation and wow, did we ever do it up right. We sold our house and the majority of our material goods, we moved into our camper and headed south to points unknown in search of a different lifestyle. 2016 found me...
Do You Believe???

Do You Believe???

Generally we like to settle down for our camping experiences away from the generator crowd, a point I’ve no doubt made previously! Meaning that if you see a caravan, 5th wheel, small camper van or “A” Class motor home (Winnebago style coach camper) pretty well...
AirBnB Review ~ 7 Volcanoes

AirBnB Review ~ 7 Volcanoes

When we started researching Lake Atitlan we knew we were spending one month in a cottage at Pasajcap, however with our friends Pete & Natasha still residing in our cottage rental for a bit, I reached out to the San Marcos Facebook page in search of lodging for the...
The Fun Starts “Just Now”

The Fun Starts “Just Now”

We often forget about the variety of differences between home and the rest of the world. Part of the fun of traveling is seeing just what life looks like for other people, in other parts of the world. Sometimes, the differences are hard to spot due to a common...
Guanajuato, Pueblo Magico, Mexico

Guanajuato, Pueblo Magico, Mexico

Pulling into the obscure labyrinth of  streets in this historic city was an otherworldly experience. The warren of tunnels and overhanging buildings rendered are GPS immediately useless and within minutes we were gleefully lost. We later learned that the tunnels were...
Kid Time in Baja

Kid Time in Baja

We reluctantly chose to leave our happy place in Baja, and head north back to the USA. Our happy place wasn’t delivering (waves, that is) so we decided to head north, do some chores, and start the snowboarding season. On our way north, we stopped in the Cataviña...
Make America Great Again!

Make America Great Again!

Following our usual travel ethos, we followed a reasonable selection of back roads that eventually deposited us at the Boeing Factory car park where we enjoyed a tour of the facility. To be honest it wasn’t overly riveting, a bit like watching paint dry really and a...
