5 Reasons To Choose Playa del Carmen Mexico as your World Schooling Hub

Central America

 

Playa del Carmen, Mexico is generally not considered a child friendly destination. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in the world, catering to the needs of not only the rich and famous, but also party animals from all over the world. Arriving at Playa del Carmen in the evening, with three kids and all of our luggage, I was literally panic-stricken. We were surrounded by a big soup of people, for as far we could see. Most of them, either happily intoxicated or uneasily sober. As opposed to other parts of Mexico, all was marked in US Dollars. Tears welled up in my eyes, and I wanted to crawl back to the small local Mexican towns, that we had thus far resided in. However, after two months I can see both the beauty and the convenience of Playa del Carmen as a worldschooling hub. Keep reading

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

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

A Whale Watching Adventure with Nico Ransome

Central America

 

Who is Nicky?

Today I am meeting the British Nicky Ransome from ‘The Orca of Sayulita’. She has invited me to go whale watching with her, and I am beyond excited to meet both this passionate young woman and the whales of Sayulita. As we chat easily I am instantly drawn to her happy and almost childlike ways. She’s an open, free-spirited soul who has lived all over the world, following the singing of the whales. We soon come to realize that, following the sound of the waves, we have lived in many of the same places. Today, the whales and waves are bringing us together in Sayulita, Mexico. Keep reading

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 ...

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
