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 […]

Camping in Kenilworth to Escape the Crowds

Is it worth it to visit Kenilworth in QLD? Well, if you’re not actually passing by or in the general vicinity I wouldn’t say a massive YES but if you happen to need a place to chill away from the crazy school holiday crowds that are so much better at booking ahead than you, then […]

Booderee National Park + Hyams Beach

A couple years back we visited the beach in Jervis Bay. It was a spontaneous trip that left a lasting impression but was too short lived. Now that we have the bus which is nearly self sufficient (only missing a toilet) I started flipping through our Camps7 book looking for a places to stay. We really […]

The Unique Island that is Holbox + a 1000 yr old Tree

Holbox (pronounced Ol-bosh) is quite a well kept secret in these parts. Your main mode of transport are golf buggies with not a single paved road & no high rises to be seen. It really is one of a kind. If you’re driving from Playa del Carmen you take the 307 towards Puerto Morelos. Take […]

Things to do In & Around Playa del Carmen with Kids

Xcaret: A fantastic adventure park that could keep you entertained for 2 days. With over 40 activities for all ages its not something you wanna miss. Four & under are free but if your kids are taller than the measuring stick you’ll end up paying if you don’t have ID to prove their age. The […]

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 […]

Xcaret -Mayan for “Small Inlet”

Xcaret – (pronounced Ish-Ka-Ret) is located just south of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula. You cant possibly miss it! With more than 40 activities we were in for a big day. 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 […]

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 […]
