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...

Textiles and pottery in Huatulco, Oaxaca

Textiles and pottery in Huatulco, Oaxaca

From Puerto Escondido, we drove half a day to Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca. This town is bordered by big enclosed resorts and fancy personal properties on the ocean. 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 cop car went through a yellow light, and we followed right...

Acapulco, Mexico and police bribery

As we drove further down the coast from Zihuatenejo to Acapulco, we were graced with more beautiful beach views. The girls built their own fort in the back of the van using pillows and their newly purchased sarongs.   We entered a neighboring beach town, which is just North of Acapulco, and hyped as being a great place to get a bite to eat and watch the sunset. It was...

Zihuatanejo Mexico and the inconveniences of working on the road

Zihuatanejo Mexico and the inconveniences of working on the road

Some days, working from the road has its downsides. After being without internet the previous night in ­­­the surf-haven of Nexpa we arrived in the bustling town of Zihuatanejo (just down the road from the beach resort town of Ixtapa). Besides Zihuatanejo being a happening Mexican town—let’s face it—it has an awesome name that you just want to repeat over and over until you can actually say it...
