Since I was a child I've been in and out of over a dozen homes. Growing up my parents were Real Estate Investors and they would spend their spare time and money flipping our homes. Some of the homes had big projects, and others small... I was always helping, working with them on home design, and this seemed rather normal for me. I graduated high school at 16 then received my Interior Design Diploma. I found myself browsing the web a few years ago, stumbling upon Hideout Bali.
With a white sandy coastline and turquoise-coloured waters, with some of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches and vast Biodiversity; it’s no wonder more than 5500 people get away to be married in Mexico each year! What do you need to know and do to get married in Mexico or on one of these incredible beaches? It’s so much easier than you think! There are no permits required and no extra fees to get married on the beach in Mexico. My personal advice for beach weddings- get marrie
A place we've started to call home 🛖
We made our way back to Veracruz for our van and stayed in an apartment we're starting to call home. We've been here several times now during our first few months in Mexico 🇲🇽
Next stop is Puebla, and back to Veracruz for the van 🙌 This apartment is one of the best deals for an Airbnb that we have seen yet. It includes a parking garage with beautiful garden seating area. There's a large kitchen because we like to cook all of our own
After a long 7 month wait for our van, we were forced to take a plunge and buy a vintage 1981 Jeep Wagoneer. We rented a small car for 3 months, later upgrading to a small SUV. After only 40 days with the car we were charged an atrocious amount and that they would not help us. This forced us to drop off the rental immediately, which followed with the purchase of our new Jeep. We named him Tank the Jeep because it feels like a tank when you are driving it. It has 4x4 and came
It’s already nearly March as I write to you about our first Christmas away from home... We spent our first Tropical Holidays in Mexico City! After a long wait for our van in Veracruz we decided to make a 4 hour journey into the big city. This was a benefit for us because there are plenty of beautiful AirBnB rentals who are pet friendly and extremely affordable. We had previously stayed at a chic apartment where we hiked about making a nice big christmas dinner. We chose a cut

JANUARY 2021 - It's been nearly 6 months since we have moved to Mexico and I am proud to announce that I have just become a local Mexican Real Estate Agent! I've been working professionally with Real Estate for 10 years. I also hold over 15 years of experience in Design and Building. The past 6 months that we have spent waiting for our van has been a time to reconnect, focus, and dream of our future. I decided to tie all of my passions together by becoming a Real Estate Agent

Modern Concrete Airbnb in Puerto Escondido It's about a week before Christmas and we found out that we will not be getting the van quite yet. We decided to upgrade vehicles, so we had to bring our little rental car back to Mexico City. It's about a 3-4 hour drive from Veracruz where our van has been parked for over 3 months... We spent a few nights in the city at a beautiful Airbnb Afterwards making our long 10-hour journey to Puerto Escondido. We arrived at night. The key to
We have been living and travelling throughout Mexico for over 1 year now! We've visited over half the states and so many unique destinations along the way. In the post, we will be sharing and updating Mexico's Best Vanlife Locations from us and other fellow travellers. Mexico has been known as the most biodiverse country on the planet. They have stunning White Sand Beaches, Tropical Forests, Volcanoes, Mountains, Pine Forests, Snow, Condense Cities (Mexico City), Deserts, Can
RENTING A SCOOTER In Mexico Renting a scooter in Mexico is something I was prepared for this time. I have already rented a scooter in Bali. If you’re only visiting your destination for a short amount of time you can most likely get away with taxis, uber, and walking but you’ll realize very very quickly how scooters are a key to freedom abroad. We have been here for a month and if we see people walking we simply wonder, “where’s this guy's scooter?” It’s just a thing in these
Our van arrived from the sea on September 28th. After spending one month in Veracruz, we decided to share part of this story so far. Once we arrived in Veracruz, our first order of business was to find another vet. Because Trixie needed surgery again... Once this was settled, our tracking number showed that our van/container/ship had arrived! I contacted our agent and we started the process to import our van. During this first week, we stayed in a small bright and cozy AirBnB
Back in Mexico City! We spent a weekend in Mexico City as a break between travelling from one side of the country to the other. I found a beautiful industrial garden loft, hidden in the middle of the city. I was definitely at the top of our list of Airbnb's we have stayed so far. To top it off, I was able to use my very first SMEG refrigerator. I was such a nice accent for this space. The Rooftop Garden was full of fruits and vegetables. I couldn't resist but to try one Green

It was early one-morning camping in our old van when we realized we had to act on our dreams and we had to do it fast. The kids were sound asleep in their bunk above and we enjoyed the sun beaming in. It had been a few years already since we decided to live alternatively but we were not surrounded by the support that we expected.
If you're new to #vanlife I want to welcome you into this fascinating world of nomads! Not all people were born to have a stable home and job, some have adventure in their veins and prefer the nomadic life.

What we can do to help Tulum and waste. If you read my recent blog post about Tulum find it here -> You may know there's what some people would call a water and sewage problem here in Tulum. The beach has been taken over by algae and the town is developing too fast. What used to be a small quiet village off the sea is now a place to find some of the most incredible ruins and vacation destination rentals. This has certainly made a significant impact on the surrounding environm
