2012 Travels in Review – a Truly Crazy Ride!

2012 Travels in Review – a Truly Crazy Ride!

So much happened in 2012, that I get overwhelmed trying to remember it all. So, Jared and I thought we’d go through our photos and make a small monthly collage of our life happenings…but that proved to be even more overwhelming! How do you sum up so much in only 5 monthly photos? 2012 was by-far the most amazing year of our lives. We experienced so many new places and cultures, as well as learned and grew...

Why we love Central America

Why we love Central America

I’m always a little bit shocked (and perhaps miffed) when people ask us WHY we like Mexico (which isn’t technically Central America, but close enough).  They say it with this little bit of disdain, wondering how we could possibly prefer anything less than 1st quality living all of the time. After living and traveling in Mexico for nearly 2 years, as well as making trips to Belize and...

Why I hated the Guatemalan border crossing

Jared had to drive and look at nearly every beach possible, of which there were many. We realized this place would be an ideal place to take a relaxing vacation…it is not your typical beach town, as it does not have big hotels and...

The beautiful beach town of Puerto Escondido, Mexico

The beautiful beach town of Puerto Escondido, Mexico

The drive out of Acapulco is still beautiful, despite the only Mexican town I prefer never to return to! 😉 There was abundant farmland, and the taxi system turned into pickup trucks with covered backs. We arrived in Puerto Escondido just after sundown, and parked near the center of town to go find some food. This tiny beach town has several blocks of great gift shops (if you’reinto...

Police corruption and bribery in Acapulco Mexico

Police corruption and bribery in Acapulco Mexico

We jumped in the van and started to make our way out of Acapulco with the help of our GPS. It had been a nice enough trip to Acapulco, with only one small cop bribery incident that ticked us off. Oh well…we were over it…and on our way out of town! Shortly after missing a turn, we found ourselves behind a cop car on a busy highway road. The cop car went through a yellow light, and we followed right...
