Welcome to the Blog!

Want to escape your 9 to 5 and live abroad? Already working on your own but looking to be location independent? Maybe you’re dreaming of making your travel dreams a reality. You’ve come to the right place!

Even in Mexico, Oaxaca is famous for their cuisine. Considered one of the greatest international cuisines, the flavors are exuberant. After several trips to Oaxaca City, and many clinical trials of many different dishes and restaurants, we have settled on a favorite, one of the best restaurants in Oaxaca, Don Juanito’s....

Oaxaca City is one of my favorite cities in the world. Full of art, culture and architecture, and fantastic food, there is something for every traveler. A touristy place, there are some expensive restaurants, galleries and areas of town, however, under the skin of this city there is a true bohemian pulse....

We’ve been wresting with door sag on our Land Rover Defender for a while. The original cast aluminum Defender hinges have held up well for over 20 years but it’s time for an upgrade. We’ve opted to go with Offroad Monkeys’ heavy duty billet aluminum hinges and windscreen brackets. They’re beefy and beautiful....

Nestled in the cold, high mountains of the Sierra Madre, this beautiful colonial city is the cultural capital of Chiapas. ...

Looking for a place to stay in Oaxaca City? We love love love this little hostel, just outside of the city center. An easy 8 minute walk into the heart of one of the coolest cities in Mexico, it’s far enough outside to be relatively quiet (except for the non-stop fireworks, of course. It is still in Mexico.)...

Meet the Zapotecs, the “cloud people”, who lived in the central valley of Oaxaca. From 500 BCE until 900 CE, their capital was the magnificent Monte Albán. Rivaling Teotihuacan and Tikal in size and grandeur, recent archeological evidence suggests that it may actually be “the first city in ancient Mesoamerica” (1), dating back to 1150 BCE. ...

Just 27 miles South-East of Oaxaca City sits the town of Mitla, home to an archeological site at the heart of Zapotec culture and one of the most popular tourist destinations for visitors of Oaxaca. While we tend to avoid “touristy” locations, we can also appreciate that epic places will often attract visitors. Such is the case with Mitla....

You know that feeling you get when you arrive somewhere that is so beautiful, so inviting and relaxing that you can’t bring yourself to leave? That was exactly the experience we had at the Ecolodge Naha....

Welcome to one of the wildest places in Mexico. Despite being a tourist destination, it’s so unique and bizarre that it’s totally worth the visit. Natural rock formations pour over the cliff like melting ice cream, overflowing 200 feet down the sides of the mountain. ...

New wheels are always fun. La Poderosa has had the same wheels for over 22 years. They’re aluminum alloys and they’re beautiful but flashy. It’s time for a change. The following is an account of our Land Rover alloy wheel refurbishment project....

Maintaining an overland vehicle - especially an older Rover - requires constant upkeep. And if you’re talking about vehicle-dependent travel as a way of life, preventative maintenance is the backbone of the whole operation. ...

Frans purchased a 1959 Series 2 109 Land Rover for long-term living so he could explore the West Coast of the United States and the Baja Peninsula....

San Miguel de Allende is just the best. I really, really love it and am so grateful to call it home. Around these parts though, everyone talks about how good it is to come back to San Miguel because much of the local and expat community travel a lot or divide their time between San Miguel and other places. ...
