Casa Sauza

When most Americans hear the word tequila, their minds are catapulted to a shot they probably shouldn’t have taken, their mouths water for a lime, and the Champs rock out in the background as Benny the Jet Rodriguez and his naive comrades make a mad, chew in place, dash for the tilt-a-whirl. Tequila is a … Read more

Our Route through the Americas

We are ecstatic about our new route map! Through, we have created a dynamic visual that allows both us and our followers to look back at where we’ve been and the route we took to get there including pictures, descriptions, links, and even a video-esque rendering of the journey. Please take a second to … Read more

Ferry Landing

To get from Baja Sur to mainland Mexico without driving nearly all the way to the states and then through the northern part of the country, one must take a ferry. Though we read that other freight companies will accept passengers, the main option, and the one that we chose, is operated by Baja Ferries. … Read more


After a long, exhausting journey back up the peninsula to fix our mistake and then south again with that mission accomplished, we decided it was time to unplug and slow down for a night. During our first drive along Highway 1 on our way to San Juanico in December, we had passed a couple of … Read more

Van on Beach

San Juanico was a beautiful place to retreat, to center, to relax. We were wooed by miles and miles of wide, empty beaches and the forced disconnection of powerless afternoons. Below is a slideshow of our favorite photos from the month.

Brianna and Board

We would be remiss if we left San Juanico without having blogged about surfing at least once. In fact, I feel quite certain that one is indeed the minimum number of posts about surfing required for a town that is most known, and many times only known, for its multiple minute rides. That being said, … Read more

The house we have lived in this month in San Juanico is a real gem. At right around 800 square feet, some highlights of this two bedroom casa designed by a local artist include a full kitchen, a vaulted palm-thatch ceiling in the living room, tiled floors, a fully-fenced lot, a fire pit, palm and … Read more

Our Street

Our description of our journey has evolved greatly over the last year, not just in how we share it with others, but in how we understand it ourselves as well. Perhaps fellow nomads Erin and Simon explain it best in their Slow Travel Manifesto. We don’t view our lifestyle as a trip as much as … Read more

Tacos Pescados

Last week we spent a day in Ciudad Constitución, Baja Sur’s fifth largest city at 40,935 inhabitants. We had only anticipated seeing Constitución while driving through it on our way to La Paz at the end of the month, so when we decided to take the semi-spontaneous day trip, we knew very little about where … Read more
