San Jose del Cabo, Mexico to Indio, CA

November 21, 2018

How did we get from San Jose del Cabo, Mexico to Indio, CA you ask? Well, we left Buena Vista Beach Resort on Monday to go to the airport.

Buena Vista Beach Resort

November 20, 2018

Yesterday we ended up at Buena Vista Beach Resort and it was everything we hoped for in a hotel and more. When we headed up to the hot spring pool Rob was wearing his cowboy hat and a fellow that was already there said: “hey… are you from Texas”? Turns out they were and one of them […]


Cabo San Lucas to Los Barriles

November 18, 2018

After our harrowing first day, we finally left Cabo San Lucas to Los Barriles. We decided to give Cabo San Lucas one more try that morning to see what the people find so fascinating about it.

Heading to the Baja, Mexico

November 16, 2018

We left home only 2 days ago heading for the Baja but it feels like we’ve packed a week into those 2 days. It all started with getting up at 2:30 am and going to the airport. Going through the checkpoint was relatively easy as there were little or no people there but Rob ended […]

El Paso to Corpus Christi, TX

March 22, 2018

After arriving in Arizona (you can read about that here) the next 2 days were a blur of travelling from El Paso to Corpus Christi, TX. We had spent a very restless night as we listened to all the traffic on Hwy 10 and were glad to get on the road the next morning. Wanting […]
