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 […]

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 […]

Learn Spanish in Mexico + the Best Salbutes in Town

I had two experiences learning Spanish in Playa del Carmen. The first two months were at Solexico for 4 hours a day & the last month was with a private tutor for one hour a day. Solexico is quite a large school with lots of little palapas. They have a cafe on site where you […]

Is Mexico Safe?

I had the exact same question when considering our plan to visit Mexico for 6 months & maybe live there indefinitely in the future. I read everything I could find online, I watched news reports & wrote several people I knew living in Mexico asking if it really was safe. This isn’t a professional gathering […]

Tulum– Be Still my Beating Heart.

I’ve got a confession to make… I have a crush. A MEGA crush on Tulum. I was intrigued by the place when I heard about it last year.. so much so it had me make the biggest decision since having kids. Live in Mexico with Little D & Miss P for 5 months to check […]

Life in Mexico with 2 Kids while The Man is Gone.

We’ve just hit 3 months in Mexico without the kids dad & my other half. When we first talked of doing this I thought 5 months would be a breeze. I’d spent nearly 5 yrs with a FIFO (fly in fly out) hubby & knew all to well what it meant to be alone with […]

I found Love in Mexico

Seeing as its Valentine’s Day & that I find myself in Mexico and my hubby is in Australia I thought I’d take the opportunity to write how the two of us met. It all happened in April 2007. I was 6 years into travelling & was at the time spending 6 months in the USA […]

9 tips when traveling with kidlets in confined spaces

1. Something that works time & time again is pressie wrapping. Basically you buy 5-10 small gifts & wrap them… sometimes in a lot of wrap which makes it doubly exciting & takes longer. The gift need not be big, just something new for them to play with when they get bored. Getting antsy? Pull […]

Alone in Mexico with two kids. Are you crazy?!

These are the questions I’ve heard so far when mentioning our proposed plan for 2014 which is for me & the kids living in Mexico solo for five months. So its Q&A time! Q: Why are you staying alone? A: First of all, we dont feel that being married all of the sudden means you […]

Ever since I was a kid and watched Bush Tucker Man featuring Major Les Hiddins  I’ve been hoping to explore this amazing country. The points we are […]
