The windy section of Baja-

Heading southward down the highway brought us to La Ventana. This is the windsurfing and kitesailing capital of Baja. And wow, what a crowd we saw. The RV parks were packed full of campers, RVs, tents and gear. The skyline was dotted with the flying wings of...
As we wrapped up the time in La Paz

As we wrapped up the time in La Paz

Since we had pre-paid for a week, we decided to stay the whole week and look for the best in La Paz rather than the worst. Once we had secured parking sorted out we were ready to play!  We went snorkeling with the whale sharks in the bay.  They are HUGE, docile...
On the Road in Nicaragua

On the Road in Nicaragua

  The highways were funded by the US so we had familiar road lines and good, pothole free roads! Celebration! Cows are in abundance and take over full lanes, especially around 8:00am. Rambo had a coating of manure to prove it. The driving laws are actually taken...
Private beaches with million dollar views!

Private beaches with million dollar views!

After Santa Rosalia we took a bumpy, sandy dirt road to a quiet beachfront area called Punta Chivato. We settled on a level spot and looked around at the views. Wow! Behind us were multi-million dollar homes, most likely owned by wealthy Americans. These homes were...

Blues and Hickory – The South (Part One)

“How y’all doin’ today?” This friendly southern greeting was music to our ears at the end of our first week on the road. Don’t get me wrong- driving through the Atlantic Provinces and North Eastern States was beautiful, with the fall colors and pleasant campgrounds....

And then with a bang our trip began. After spending 3 weeks in and out of hardware stores, mechanics, camping shops, auto parts stores etc, our pink slip arrived (registration for the car) and off we went to begin our trip Southwards. Night 1… da dum: a layby...
Bolivia: el país de las experiencias

Bolivia: el país de las experiencias

Bolivia es un país contradictorio. Por un lado el caos, por otro, la templanza de su gente. Adaptarse y entenderlo no es fácil, nos costó, nos cuesta todavía. Lo bueno es que hablando con otros viajeros nos dimos cuenta que no éramos los únicos que sentíamos estas...
Meet Pepe…

Meet Pepe…

We agonized long and hard over which car to get… Do we go with the reliability and practicality of a 4×4 but with zero charm or living space or do we go with the dream. We went with the dream… Meet Pepe, our 1983 VW Westfalia camper van –  home...

Catamarca y Tucumán: 4 días en la vida

“¿Cuatro días para atravesar dos provincias? Van muy rápido!”. Puede ser, pero les aseguro que cada minuto viajando es como una hora, cada día es una semana y las semanas parecen meses. Y cuatro días nos alcanzaron para hacer todo lo que queríamos. El primer pueblito...
Mais où sont-ils ?

Mais où sont-ils ?

Bonjour ! Vu le nombre de questions que nous recevons sur notre site web ou par email (où êtes-vous, vous allez où, vous rentrez quand ?), je pense qu’on vous doit bien un éclaircissement. Oui, nous avons bien quitté l’Amérique du Sud. Nous sommes repassés par la...
Spearfishing the Cresta del Gallo

Spearfishing the Cresta del Gallo

Sometimes it all comes together just before it all falls apart. I found the spot where the pargo were lurking and was lining up shots but couldn’t seem to land one. I had two shots on good respectable fish that went bad and one on a monster. The monster fish had...

CO 1 – 2 Days 12 Kilometers

We had really been looking forward to Colombia. Right now, we just want to get the hell out of here. We were behind schedule when we crossed the border from Venezuela into Colombia. It was Saturday and we had an early start in order to get through Maracaibo in a...

VZ 11 – Bittersweet Goodbye

Leaving Venezuela is bittersweet. We never planned on sticking around, we even thought long and hard about a way to get around the country, but we have come to really appreciate Venezuelas affordability and the freedom that provides. The affordability does come at a...

VZ 10 – Vacation

We have tried to keep a straight course through Venezuela and avoid any wandering around. Our purpose here is to pass through and get to Colombia where we plan to do a small amount of exploring, mostly in regard to eating. As we drove through the parched and smoky...

VZ 9 – The Cost of Living

The simple answer to how is it possible to spend three years living and traveling in Mexico and South America without a job or any real source of income is : Very carefully. We cook our own food and we camp out. We almost never eat at restaurants. If we do, we bring...
