Stepping Away from Vanlife /// A Trip to Antigua, Guatemala

Those of you who have been following our blog know that we’ve spent the last few weeks hanging around in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.  It’s a sticky place for Vanlifers and once we arrive here, it’s always hard to leave.  BUT, we recently had a great opportunity to meet up with some friends in Antigua, Guatemala … More Stepping Away from Vanlife /// A Trip to Antigua, Guatemala

From Tent Camping to Vanlife /// Mexico & Guatemala Travel

For many years, Marc and I were avid tent campers. We camped throughout the US, Eastern Canada and even along Australia’s southeast coast with our little 3-person tent and whatever car we had at the time.

Cobblestones, a Ghost Town & Peyote Hallucinations /// Northern Mexico

Real de Catorce As we rattled along the cobblestone road, I began second-guessing our choice to visit Real de Catorce. We were lured by the promise of a ghost town and the vague idea that it was ‘en route’ from San Miguel de Allende to Hidalgo. I had been admiring the desert landscape as we … More Cobblestones, a Ghost Town & Peyote Hallucinations /// Northern Mexico

Chasing Waterfalls & Urban Exploring Part 2: Vanlife North & Central Mexico

Grutas Tolantongo Canyon We awoke early in the morning, found some pastries and coffee at the ONLY café open in Cholula at 9:00 am (what?! – this seems to be typical in Mexico) and waved goodbye to the friendly old man who runs the funky little parking lot. We were off in search of adventure … More Chasing Waterfalls & Urban Exploring Part 2: Vanlife North & Central Mexico
