We felt like we’d put Karen & Mike through enough. Whilst we’re sure they enjoyed their time in Cuba it’s also important to have some down time, with the new school term looming over Karen we aren’t sure anyone wanted another 4 hour squished car journey! That being said… we did in fact take a … Continue reading A More Traditional Holiday, and Farewell to Mexico
It's safe to say we thoroughly enjoyed our extra day in the hotel at Ciudad del Carmen. Not only could we recharge our batteries but Betty was also afforded some well needed rest - the last thing we needed right now was a mechanical problem on the way down to Cancun or we'd have ended … Continue reading The Last Haul, and Visiting a Wonder of the World!
The last 10 days are definitely not what we had in mind when we set out to 'Overland the Americas'. The point of the trip was always about taking our time, if we ever found somewhere we liked stopping for however long we wanted.

The first time we met was in the Philippines in 2015. Back then Annie was backpacking alone and Mikey was backpacking with his cousin Sophie. It only felt right we should force her hand to come and visit us! We had great plans for the sand, sea and sun. Mikey went to pick up Sophie … Continue reading Our Third Visitor – Bienvenidos Sophie!
As was becoming our newfound tradition in Mexico, we moved from our Pacific coast campsite to another beautiful beach campsite (we love you Baja!). This one was in the resort town of La Ventana. We’d been excited to visit this town for la vienta - the wind. Ever since we’d learnt to windsurf in Hood … Continue reading Giving Betty a Rest
Well we made it into Mexico! It’s been a rough ride, everything you’ve heard is true. We’re constantly on edge, worried about our safety. Seriously - you never know where the next cheap taco, friendly smile and stunning free beach camp is going to come from. Definitely one to avoid… Whilst our border crossing experience … Continue reading The warmest Mexican welcome
