Northbound: Our last 10 days in Baja


After spending a night in Los Barriles, it was time to say goodbye to our travel companions and begin the journey back North. While Seth & Drea had another entire month to bask in all that is good and wonderful about Baja, we, on the other hand, had to be back in the states in 9 days time. We didn’t NEED 9 days to get back to the border but we like to travel slow, allowing ourselves the...

Baja California Road Trip Week 4: People-watching and whale-spotting in Todos Santos


The start of week four and we had made it to Todos Santos, or “Todos Gringos” as our friends lovingly called it.  I’d heard rave reviews of this town for years and was excited to experience it for myself.  A public beach, a couple miles north of town, though populated with several other campers, ended up being our home for five beautiful days.  While this beach didn’t grab me at...

Baja California Road Trip Week 3: LaPaz and the land of gringo campers


It didn’t take long for me to start contemplating how and when we could make the trip back to Baja next winter.  We now had a taste of what was here and that wasn’t something we would soon, if ever, forget.  The beaches and climate are what drew us in, the food, the people, the slower pace, the lower cost of living, are what have made us feel right at home. With two and a half weeks...

Baja California Road Trip Week 2: Slowing down in Loreto


It may sound silly but it wasn’t until Day 9 that this trip felt real.  It had finally sunk in, this wasn’t a dream I was going to wake up from.  I was truly in Mexico, camped steps from the ocean.  The sound of calm seas lapping the shoreline had been putting me to sleep at night and waking me up every morning for the last 9 days.   Over the years, many of our friends have...

Baja California Road Trip Week 1: Sensory overload in the best way


Ever since arriving in Mexico it feels as though time has slowed down. From the speed limits to the customer service, nothing happens fast around here. Mark & I always feel as though we’re moving at a slower pace than the rest of the world around us so we immediately felt right at home. While I’m still digesting and acclimating to the wonder of this trip, I wanted to share with...

Baja here we come!


After a lot of shuffling, we are finally ready for the road trip of a lifetime. We’ve temporarily moved out of our larger trailer and in to our more robust and off-road capable utility trailer, and tomorrow cross the border for five weeks in Mexico! I have dreamt of a Baja road trip for longer than I can remember. Tomorrow, when we cross, I will probably be the most nervous I’ve been...


We’re Mark & Michele, modern-day nomads perfecting the art of slow, full-time travel.  Our tiny home on wheels and slow-paced travel style allows us to minimize our expenses while maximizing our freedom.  May our unconventional way of life inspire you to design a life that you love.
