This is the place where we share in depth information from our travels and our friends and family bring their photos and stories here too.

There's even a place for you to join in and submit your own travel stories and photos below.

For the most part, when we travel, it's not to see the inside of a 5 star resort. That's not to say that we don't indulge in a little luxury every now and again but because we're not independently wealthy we had to choose between short luxurious trips or long term travel that's easy on the budget...we chose the latter.

"Home" is divided pretty much evenly between Mexico and Canada. You can probably figure out when we're where.

We go home to Canada for 6 months in the summer to work and save and to catch up on everyone's doings.

In Mexico we live aboard our sailboat and travel along the Pacific coastline as well as taking inland trips to spoon in a little culture.

Barra de Navidad 2016

sidewalk shopping in barra de navidad

Post hurricane Patricia we flew in to Puerto Vallarta and hopped on a bus to Barra de Navidad to check out the boat, connect with friends and see how the locals fared.

It is amazing to see how quickly the Mexicans have begun repairing damaged roads and buildings, they're such resourceful and resilient people.

2015 Travel Logs

Read more about 2015

2015 started right here for us. After 48 hours underway we're bobbing at anchor in one of the sweetest anchorages along Mexico's Pacific coastline. More boats arrive within a few hours and we'll cavort around these Islands for a few days before carrying on to Barra de Navidad. Read more about 2015

Trip from Barra to Guadalajara and Tequila

Cathedral in Guadalajara

Shortly after we returned from Guadalajara our friends asked for some information and this is what we told them.

During this 4 day journey we decided to "wing it". Yup, that's right, we thought it might be a good idea to pretend that we're 4 kids backpacking around Mexico.

Would we do it again?...
