En (Garden) Route to Safari, South Africa

After spending a glorious week in Capetown, we rented a car and headed along the famous Garden Route of South Africa. It is a stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa which extends from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River in the Eastern Cape. The distance is under 300km, yet the range […]

Capetown, South Africa

Somehow we made the decision to travel from David, Panama to Capetown, South Africa. It strangely was cheaper and more ‘cost effective’ according to our travel agency to not go through Brazil (which would make the most logical sense) but to fly from David, Panama to Panama City, Panama to Miami, Florida to Doha, Qatar […]

Bocas del Toro, Panama

After our time in Costa Rica, we crossed the border by foot to Panama. The border crossing we had heard could go either way and for us, luckily, it was a cinch. Though getting to our next destination, Bocas del Toro, was not! After crossing the border, we hailed a cab and set out for […]

Doing Inspiring Sh#t

First, we have to apologize here for the delay in our all blog posts. Life on the road has its ups and downs, its challenges. One of them being reliable internet which has made it nearly impossible to sit and spend a lot of time blogging away. And even if we did have reliable internet, […]

Arenal, Costa Rica

Mitla is Neatla by Charlie Baumhauer

Hola Amigos! This is Charlie here.  I went to Mitla in Mexico a couple weeks ago. I liked it a lot because you could go inside tombs and a pyramid. The tombs were kind of stinky because they kept people who died here. The pyramid was empty inside and there was some details that looked […]

“Mexicans are lazy”

If there’s one resounding truth that can be said about Americans it’s that we’re hard workers. It’s in our cultural DNA. Before this trip, I used to routinely work 10-12 hours a day during the week and then cap it off with another 10 to 20 more on the weekend. And when I’d complain about […]

El arte y la vida de Oaxaca

All of our five senses have been on overload here in Oaxaca. You can’t have a bad meal, it’s absolutely impossible, and I, for one, don’t even eat meat so can’t imagine the realm of all the flavors out there …every time we step foot outdoor we anticipate some sort of adventure in any one or […]
