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 […]

Exploring Hidden Worlds

My sister Shells & her BF Lewis came for a visit which also happen to coincide with her birthday! We decided to look for something a little more adventures plus she was hoping to check out the club Coco Bongo.

Our First Aid Kit

I know I can get everything in Mexico. Farmacias (pharmacies) are quite abundant. But if you happen to be in the middle of no where or just can’t be bothered going out to find what you need in a time of need then packing a small kit is gonna save you a lot of stress. […]

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 […]

Monarch Butterflies in El Rosario Michoacán

Years ago when we first bought land in the state of Michoacán (online- we’d never actually been there) I researched extensively all there was to do in the area. I had seen a couple posts about the Monarch Butterflies migrating from Canada & was hooked. Finally in the area we had a chance to see […]

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 […]
