I don’t think it’s any secret that I like love beer. Dark beers, light beers, red beers, bottled beers, canned beers, beer on tap, whatever. Heck, after living in Mexico for 3 years I’ve even grown to like (well, tolerate) warm beers since cold ones can be in short supply. In short, beer is great and I love it. I’ve never really been much of a beer nerd or beer snob, I just like trying new beers when I get the opportunity. Luckily for me, constant traveling presents endless opportunities to find and try new things, including new kinds of…

Copenhagen Canal

So Deidre and I are coming up on three years in Mexico. Wow, three years, just typing that is incredibly hard to believe but it’s true. Mexico is huge, we love it and we haven’t even come close to seeing all of it, but recently we really needed a break. Other than short jaunts to the United States to visit family and a quick weekend in Cuba we haven’t left Mexico in years and were itching to see someplace new. I know, we’re jerks but we needed a vacation from the very place that many people vacation to. We had a…

Mexican Autohotel

I’m not an accommodations snob. I don’t think. I’ve stayed in tents, hostels, motels and on people’s couches. But over the years, as my income grew, so did the quality of the places that we stayed in while on vacation. In addition, travel was a part of my corporate life and over the years I stayed in some amazing places (while still being a budget-conscious employee – I swear!). I crisscrossed the United States from New York to Los Angeles to Miami to Portland and enjoyed high thread count sheets, rooftop bars and room service (all while getting work done…

We’re currently in the United States celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends and it’s reminded us of just how many things we have to be thankful for. We’re extremely thankful for the many incredible experiences we had while living in Xcalak and to you our faithful readers for following along on our adventures. We’ve put together a little video recap of our time in Xcalak (both good and bad) to celebrate and we hope you enjoy both it and your weekend!

So we’re in the middle of a VERY long road trip from Xcalak to Kansas City.  In between the massive amounts of driving, we are having a fantastic time exploring new parts of the country – parts that we cannot wait to tell you all about – and also we’ve managed to stop at a few old favorites as well. At the beginning of our trip we returned to Valladolid and toured the nearby ruins of Ek Balam  with some friends who had never been. Afterwards we headed to nearby Cenote X’Canche to cool off. One of the things I love about…

Mexico Minute - AWOL Americans

Private airplanes? That’s just how we roll. Sort of. Recently we were on a flight (an Airbus 320 for you plane nerds – I think that’s a thing). This is a picture of our plane in flight. There were a total of 12 passengers on the plane including us. The crew came close to outnumbering the passengers. I’ve done my fair share of travel over the years and this? Well these days this just doesn’t happen. Such a huge benefit of having a flexible travel schedule. Travel karma is sure to catch up with us at some point, but we…
