From the Blog



We have been cruising through Mexico and Guatemala the last few weeks, two countries we know quite well but we had a lot of fun doing it with two VW busses and our cameras. Tomorrow we are finally ready to head into unexplored territory: El Salvador. We are now relaxing in a small hotel at the border between Guatemala and El Salvador en tomorrow morning we will cross into El Salvador. We are very curious[…]


Two months in Playa del Carmen: our top 6

We have been in Playa del Carmen for the last two months and we have really come to love this city. It is 100% Mexican but with a lot of foreign influences. If you ignore the fact that the cash machines sometimes spit dollars and look away from the Quinta avenida (5th avenue), you will find that it is has a lot to offer. From nice places to work to hidden places in the beach[…]

A road trip with a baby in a vintage VW van: in 3 months from Mexico to Costa Rica. You are going to do what?! With a baby? But…? And..? Uhm….? Yeah, the same kind of questions have crossed our minds when thinking of this plan. There are a lot of buts, maybes and uhms to think of and those are just the kind of questions and challenges we love to tackle! What we also love, as[…]



Over the last six months, Steven has been training very hard for his first serious triathlon, a 70.3 Ironman in Aix en Provence, France. Two weeks ago his moment had finally arrived. All the training, the preparation, the planning, the traveling and the dreaming it would finally become a reality. At 4.45 AM he opened his door to get in the car to drive to the start. But the wind was so strong it almost[…]


We are having a lot of fun in Holland

We have been in Holland for almost two months now and we are having a great time! One of the great things of traveling is coming home (albeit only for a few months). All the stuff that is so typically Dutch and makes us feel right at home like the food, the weather and our dear friends and family are always a true gift after being away for a long time. But also new things[…]



It has been almost three weeks since our little Isa was born and we have enjoyed every second of it! Both our parents have been here, Stevens brother with girlfriend and also Stevens Uncle. We felt so warm to have them here around us (and could really use a pair of extra hands;)) Isa is doing great, she is growing steadily. As you can see in the pictures we weighed her on a very accurate[…]

We are offline 6 weeks for our maternity and paternity leave

We decided to take a long maternity and paternity leave the entire month of November and probably a bit of December too. Our MacBooks are nicely wrapped in a ribbon and we go offline to be fully present for the birth of our baby (boy or girl) and completely focus on the first[…]
