6 & 1/2 Months on the Road!

Heres a little bit on what we’ve learned & what we’ve spent to travel this beautiful country & compare it to what we were spending when living a stationary life. Living on the road comes with many unexpected surprises. Some good, some bad. We’re learning to embrace them all. Practical things learned:  How to drive […]

Some Favourite Books

We happened upon this quirky little bookstore in Beerwah QLD, & in the window spotted the book below. Dakota loving all things explorer & adventure was as excited as I was. Filled with awesome true stories of real life explorers & lots of how to’s. After going through it with him at lunch I thought […]

Learning to Drive a 23ft Bus

When we got the bus I was over the moon. We finally had a way to do The Lap & I couldn’t wait to jump in & go. But I didn’t even sit in the driver seat until I’d done a fair amount of reno’s. Do you know why? Because deep down I was nervous […]

Museums in South Australia

Adelaide City Museum: is a wonderful little place with a lot of art, stories & information about the Aboriginal people plus a whole floor dedicated to those of the surrounding islands. And not only that its completely free! Hardly any of my pics turned out, but I’d say this place is well worth the visit.  […]

Frida Kahlo

We visited Casa Azul (Blue House) in Mexico City. The cost to enter was 80 pesos pp ($6.70 aud). Kids 5 & under are free. If you want to take photos you have to pay an extra 60 pesos ($5.00 aud) . From here on out are quotes or information that is on the walls of […]

Mexican Food

Seeing as I’ve been cooking a bit of Mexican at home, taking some classes & eating a whole lot I thought I’d share a few recipes with you! Ceviche: 2 limes

Xcaret -Mayan for “Small Inlet”

If you’re looking for one spot that has nearly everything at your fingertips then this is it. Seeing as the place is […]

Chichén Itzá a Wonder of the World

We drove North past Cancun towards Merida & followed the toll roads & signs to Chichén Itzá. Its a 3 hour drive & relatively easy to find, even with detours, small towns & extremely basic signs. After parking the car for a small fee we made our way to the front desk. It cost 177 pesos […]

Coba – an Incredible Mayan Archaeological Site.

When I heard about Mayan ruins in the jungle I knew I had to take the kids to check it out. What fun to explore & a great opportunity to learn more history not only about the Mayans way of life but their architecture as well. I wasn’t sure where it was exactly… just somewhere […]

Swim with the Turtles in Akumal

This beach deserves a post all on its own. Not only is it gorgeous but you can swim with the Green Sea Turtles & Stingrays for free! If coming from Playa its a 30 min drive on the 307 towards Tulum. You’ll see plenty of signs on the way. But its on the other side […]
