Finally, Beach time

So we woke up early to leave Acapulco, in fact we set the first alarm since starting our trip. After our evening arrival in Zihuatanejo we wanted to ensure even if the drive was really long we would be somewhere we could stay before the sun set. At seven am we set out and we…

Over the mountains and to the sea

Wednesday we left San Miguel de Allende. We took our time getting everything situated in the bus before we left. The night before we had located an RV park along the route to the beach. The plan was to see how we felt when we got there and decide if we wanted to push through…

Now we’re really getting into Mexico- San Miguel de Allende

So we have been in Mexico about a week now and I have had some time to reflect on being here. Mexico isn’t truly part of Central America. From a geographical stand point, the Yucatan Peninsula is but in reality Mexico is it’s own region. It is a blend between the first world and the…

It’s warm in the South

Bus video- Exterior

So we’ve done some videos of the bus. Here is the exterior of the bus. Stay tuned for the interior tour

Country Roads

So we discovered this great option on google maps that allows you choose to avoid highways. We’ve been using this along our route and it has been taking us down amazing picturesque country roads. The other advantage is that people are a lot less likely to get frustrated at the slow speed of the bus….

The first week

For almost a week now we have been trying to outrun the weather. We left the night before we had originally planned on leaving in order to get ahead of the snow and since then we have been on the run. Apparently we choose the coldest week of winter to start our travels. Don’t worry-…
