Saying Good-bye is never easy, especially when it’s forever.

It never seems real. Not when it’s fresh.  At the time of this writing, we are heartbroken, ugly crying and feeling the crushing weight of the loss of one of our beloved family members. Roxy was an amazing part of our family, right from the start. The moment she laid eyes on Kaden, she knew …

What can we say? It’s Gonna be a Volcano Day!

When we first arrived in Nicaragua we had a total shit day at the border trying to get in. It took 7 hours and a lot of yelling (for the last 2 hours) on my part to finally get us in. It was getting dark and we still had a 2 hour drive to get …

Adventure In Costa Rica- Finca Don Rafa’s

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start. We had had a long border crossing day and decided that because of the late hour, we would head out to Walmart and get groceries for camping because the border agents took all of our vegetables and dairy products. It had started pouring buckets and we didn’t …

Border Crossing Peñas Blancas, Nicaragua to Costa Rica with Vehicle and Pets

We’ve been trying to get to this post for a REALLY long time, but a lot of things have been preventing us from actually crossing the border with our vehicle for a while. HOWEVER, we finally did it!!! And now we’re here to share our knowledge of how to cross the border with your vehicle …

Corn Islands- Getting There

When trying to figure out whether the trip to Corn Islands is worth the money spent, you must ask yourself… Are you ready for an adventure? Or are you more looking to have a Hawaiian vacation with the same expectations and hospitality that you find there, without the price tag? If you’re hoping for the …

The Long Awaited Corn Islands

With its white sand beaches, warm Caribbean water and Creole inspired Caribbean food, it’s not hard to see why these tiny little Islands off the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua draw a lot of attention from those who know about them, yet so many people still have never heard of this little slice of heaven on …

Ziplining Mombacho

Adventure awaits, and it’s closer than you think! Just outside of Granada, Nicaragua is a magical place. Cooler climate, sloths, monkeys and all sorts of other colorful reptiles. All of these things can be found at Volcan Mombacho. After taking a hiking tour of the Volcano on the Puma trail (guided hike, for good reason), …

Volcan Mombacho

After spending a quarter of the year separated during 2021, we decided that we needed to hit the road and explore some places we’ve been meaning to visit, but just haven’t had the chance to, for one reason or another. Our first stop on this trip was to Volcan de Mombacho. It is a cloud …

In Real Life, Shit Happens.

For most of us, 2021 was just the extension of 2020 all over again. Lockdowns, more mandates, vaccines and the like. I (Vanessa) had to spend a total of three months back in the United States in 2021. Two separate trips each for a month and a half. There were some family tragedies, my uncle …

La Isla de Ometepe

When we first arrived in Nicaragua, if you’ve been reading or keeping up with our blog, you’ll know that we ended up having to abandon the CA-4 to get our tourist visas’s renewed and that was quite the fiasco. We had to find a way to get to Costa Rica with closed land borders and …
