For most people, a visit to the Mexican Riviera – a.k.a. the Caribbean side of the Yucatan – lasts for around a week and costs $3000 to $5000 dollars. How is it then, that we’re able to stay here for months and spend less than $400 a week? Partly it’s because we rent a condo […]

After nine weeks of living in downtown Cancun, we were looking forward to a change of setting. And having been to Playa del Carmen before, we knew it would provide some fun and relaxation. Plus it’s the perfect home base for working and exploring some ruins and cenotes over the next six weeks. We’d scheduled […]
Last week Rich wrote a post giving his thoughts on what it’s like to live the vagabonding lifestyle. I’ve also been formulating a few thoughts on the subject. So I’ll give you my perspective, along with a brief update on the happenings in our life. We’ve noticed that spring has arrived in Cancun. About the […]
Rich and I’ve been living in downtown Cancun for about two months now, and we’ve grown pretty comfortable here. It’s funny how quickly you can adopt a place. The locals make it easy to feel at home, as they welcome us pretty much everywhere we go. Because of this, we get to experience a side […]
After reading about Isla Mujeres, or “Island of Women” for months, it was becoming somewhat of a familiar mystery to me. On Sunday I was ready to check it out and the weather report had promised sunshine. So despite some suggestive clouds that rolled in, we decided to go anyway. We headed to the ferry […]
Today it was absolutely gorgeous out, so we decided to visit the nearby El Rey Ruins. They’re about a half hour bus ride from our ‘home’ in downtown Cancun, located at the southernmost end of the Hotela Zoneria – or Hotel Zone. They also happen to be conveniently tucked in between a lagoon and a […]
Cancun is divided into 2 very distinct sections – the Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone), which is where the vast majority of vacationers spend their time, and the Zona Urbana (Urban Zone), which is where the city dwellers, backpackers, and Kathy and I live for the time being. The 2 zones are separated by a couple […]
After surviving an unseasonably cold Atlanta winter, the land of turquoise beaches and palm trees was very enticing! We had our beloved flip-flops, T-shirts and other SoCal gear with us and were ready for the warmth. Our 2 1/2 hour flight was easy and we landed in Cancun International Airport with no hitches. Hola!! Either […]
Note: This post was was written after leaving Atlanta, where we stayed with family for about six weeks from Dec. to mid January. It covers a few highlights of activities we did while in the area, so it’s a bit longer than our normal posts. On December 3rd we finally landed at our winter destination […]
After driving over 520 miles down the U.S. coast from MA through Washington DC and Philadelphia, we are ready for a rest here in Richmond, VA. It seems we’ve been following a sort of ‘history trail’, so are looking forward to a new perspective from the South. And since Richmond was the capital of the […]
Up until 2010, I’d never visited our Nation’s Capitol – Washington, D.C. (District of Columbia). Somehow during the past year, I’ve visited Washington not once or twice, but three times! The first two times was without Kathy, so I was excited to explore the city with my better half. For those who have never been, […]
On November 15th, Rich and I packed up and left western Massachusetts as planned. After being in New England for 6+ weeks, packing up felt like moving all over again. I guess that’s part of the vagabond lifestyle. At the same time, we felt that we’d been in the Northeast long enough, and it was […]
