Small Car, meet Paddle Board

A little off topic but our lives are a little off topic lately. We have found ourselves uncomfortably stationary in a world that is pretty foreign to us… Florida. Although, we have become residents of this vacation-destination state, we treat it like an extended vacation ourselves. We want to make sure we experience it all…

The Return Home – Southern Mexico

Work, relocation and the daily grind has gotten the best of me – up until today, the blog has all been but forgotten. I finally signed up for the “Time-Hop” feature on Facebook and it was the swift kick in the ass that I needed. A year ago, around this time, we were faced with…

The Return Home – Antigua

Of course Antigua gets its own short post. I love this place so darn much. But first ~ more border crossings.   We decided to cross at the Hachadura border going north – why? Why not! We hadn’t been that way yet so we thought, what the heck! The border was very simple to cross…

The Return Home – Leon and Border Crossings for Days

    We found ourselves in a difficult situation. Our budget was well blown and we were entering our reserve account… Solid work starts for us with the coming of winter and we were miles and miles from the Colorado Rockies and snow. We made the extremely tough decision to book it home – we…

Belize Zoo

First, I have to say it is so hard to keep up the pace with writing about our trip now that we are home. It seems like it was all a dream and I am constantly kicking myself for not finished up our little narrative. So to get back into the swing of things (hopefully),…

Sunsets for Days

Welcome to our library of our most important ritual of trip. Not much reading here, strictly beautiful pictures.    

Mama Sara’s House

If you want to party your pants off (and put the party up your nose), hook up with any other backpacker you can find and possibly wake up to a monkey giving you a handy… THEN DON’T COME TO MAMA’S! There are other places for this, and this is just too good to be one…

VIVA NICA : Our time in San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur, our home for about 4 weeks during our trip. There is so much to say about the place. In the tour books, they still have SJDS labeled as a quiet fishing village, clearly there hasn’t been an editor in the area for awhile. Fishing is still a part of this community…

Back to Bacalar – The Photos

Here’s a bit of a catch up and a teaser. I have an “office day” planned for Friday to fully dive into one of our favorite places on our trip, San Juan del Sur, Rivas, Nicaragua. But until then, a little eye candy for everyone’s Tuesday. I have not emptied my camera card again on…

Pura Vida!

  After Laguna Apoyo we headed down to San Juan del Sur for a week. We were hooked and at our final destination… And we couldn’t stay put, the travel itch had set in and there was no cure. We had to try to get to Panama so we could check off driving all of…

Laguna de Apoyo

Let’s talk about heaven on earth. It’s here. Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua is tied as my favorite place in Nicaragua. We have been to Little Corn Island on a previous trip and if you’ve been there, you know it’s absolute paradise. Apoyo competes with Little Corn in my book. Situated right smack between Granada and…

Las PeƱitas and Our Bribe Attempt

Las Penitas is the a great place for your first night in Nicaragua. Leon would be the first choice to visit when coming from the north but there is a major problem with the colonial town destination. There is no rig parking. There is no camping. If you are looking for a place to stay…
