Getting Dental Work Done – The Mexican Way

Central America

 

During our two years of traveling through South and Central America we have had little to no health issues. Which is good, as we currently didn’t have health insurance. However, the times we did have minor problems we always went to local hospitals and clinics. Just like our fellow Ecuadorians, Peruvians, or Mexicans. In most cases there were private clinics available, but we decided to undergo the ultimate cultural experience, going through local healthcare. In this post I will take you by the hand as Sheree undergoes some dental work in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Keep reading

Oh, Oaxaca, You’re Food to My Soul

Inspirational

 

After eight months of residing in the buzzing town of Sayulita, Puerto Escondido in the state of Oaxaca (Mexico) is food to my soul. As I walk along the beach, I feel my shoulders slowly relax and I can breathe again. There’s nothing but a deafening silence. A far away ocean swell. My drifting thoughts. I see fishermen, surfers. Dogs wandering around a stretch of golden sand. A lonely jogger. A deserted lifeguard tower. I instantly know why I came here, why life had taken me by the hand and gently guided me here.

Yeay! We’re Moving again!

Inspirational

 

This time our leave is long overdue. We have been in Mexico for over eight months, and I can sense my wandering spirit getting restless. But why? Why are we packing up again when we have settled. When we have made so many friends. When we have grown to love this small town of Sayulita. Where we play, and where we work. Why? Keep reading

How I ended up Camping on a Deserted Beach in Mexico

Central America

 

How can a single mom travel the world with three kids, on an empty bank account? Somewhere along the road I must have had a sugar-daddy, a rich aunt, won the lottery, or engage in indecent proposals. Life’s just not all rainbows and unicorns. Traveling costs money, and money doesn’t grow on (palm) trees. Keep reading

Inspirational

 

Today, we’ve decided to join a local initiative to clean up the beach. After that, we’ll do some free surfing. It seems like a perfect way to spend a Saturday, so I inhale, the hot and humid tropical air filling my lungs, and look out at the ocean. This is when I realize that I’ve finally made it.

After two years of traveling we arrived in the Mexican Caribbean. Quite the shock, I may say. Instead of local fruitstands there is Walmart. Instead of broke but handsome surfers wearing loose shorts, there's bronzed and oiled up men wearing speedos and golden watches. Instead of casually wandering into PachaMama shop, I get refused into a store because of my bare feet. Instead of waves there's ripples. But how thankful I am for this journey, for my girls, for my friends, and all the love going around! <3 ...

And so the journey continues. After a thirteen hour bus ride we finally arrived in San Cristobal de las Casas. Such lovely change of scenery! ...

Man oh man, Puerto Escondido's Big Wave Challenge was on fire today!

The last few weeks I started to wonder why I was here. I worked my butt off just to get good on the table. I couldn't find the time to surf. And I was tired. Then days like today make me feel alive, and confident of the journey I am on. Massive waves, impressive men who fear less, and beautiful vibes. What else could a woman ask for? <3
