J233 - Tulcán - Équateur 🇪🇨
Premier stop en Équateur après le passage de la frontière.
Il nous aura fallu un tout petit peu plus de 2 heures pour toutes les démarches pour sortir de Colombie et entrer en Équateur. C’est vraiment l’attente qui a pris du temps car les formalités ont été parmi les plus simples de toutes les frontières que nous avons traversées.
Nous nous faisions une montagne de cette frontière, on nous avait dit d’être très prudents, notamment en raison des immigrés vénézuéliens qui tentent désespérément de passer, mais finalement nous l’avons trouvée super facile à traverser ! Avis aux prochains voyageurs ! 😉
Et comme il est l’heure de déjeuner, nous nous arrêtons rapidement après la frontière, à Tulcán dont le cimetière est devenu célèbre. Nous en profiterons donc pour le visiter après manger.
Le travail des jardins qui occupent près de la moitié du cimetière a été initié par Don José María Azael Franco Guerrero en 1936, quand il occupait le poste de chef des parcs de la municipalité de Tulcán.
En 1984, l'œuvre a été déclarée «Patrimoine culturel de l'État» par l'Institut du patrimoine culturel de l'Équateur, puis la Direction Nationale du Tourisme le déclare "Site Naturel d'Intérêt Touristique National". Et c’est vrai que c’est un travail titanesque mais tellement beau ! 🤩 Un vrai labyrinthe végétal ! 🌲🌿

We love finding activities where Bodie can join us because he is seriously SO. FREAKING. HAPPY. as long as he’s hanging with us, no matter what the activity is. Whether it’s a simple walk around the neighborhood, dodging tennis balls, or finding the closest body of water to take a quick dip in. He’s game for it all.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - life would suck without you, Bub. Thanks for always reminding me that the little things are really the big things. ❤️

Question for you....what is holding you back from going out and reaching your dreams?! Like full on going for it?
I have so many people who talk to me now that we have sold everything and hit the road. They have passions and dreams but just don’t know how to get out of their current situation. They feel stuck. They ask me how we actually made things happen.
Visited the lovely Smith family. Music, dancing, playing, movie-watching. Love abounds. #lifeontheroad#family

Life is too short. Too short to take life seriously. Too short to not show the world your true soul. Too short to not give your friends all of you. ⠀
Things change fast and you don’t want a day to pass where you thought “I wish...” If you’ve ever thought that, some of us are lucky enough to have a second chance. But most of the time, the moment passes, and we are stuck with the things we wanted to say or do. ⠀
Before you lose that chance, go for it. Get that confession off your chest. Go bungee jumping. Help a friend or even a stranger without being asked. Be yourself. Your heart will feel a lot lighter if you do 💕⠀

I feel so much safer now with Várri onboard 🐶 na, just kidding 💤 he mainly sleeps all day long!
We're doing a short trip to get Várri comfortable with spending full days in/around the van. He always gets a little whiny in new places, but besides that he loves being in the van! 🤞So that's promising for our upcoming trip to Morocco
It's also the first trip I'm doing on my own, so wheter he's sleeping or whining, it's just great with company!

Y'all, I follow a lot of gorgeous, amazing women on Instagram. But one of my favorites is Erin from Wink & A Twirl!
She is so bubbly, honest and sweet that she quickly became one of my favorite people to follow. Today I got the absolute pleasure and surreal joy to get to meet her! And let me tell you she is just as sweet and kind in person. So if you aren't following @wink_and_a_twirl you need to!
I can personal attest that she is as kind and genuine in person as she is on Instagram! So thank you Erin for giving me the surreal and wonderful pleasure of getting to meet you!
Guys.... we’ve been keeping a pretty big secret from you.
As you may or may have not noticed we’re so in love with Todos Santos - we love it here so much that we have decided to make this place our permanent HOME!!!! Our very loose plan when we first set out to live and travel full time in Dita (our RV) was to travel for awhile and find a place to invest in some form of real estate or property. We neverrrr thought it would be here in Mexico but we deeply feel we have found the right place.
The property we have just purchased has three little casitas which we will rent out, Airbnb, etc... the plan is to create a place for relaxation, inspiration and a chance to experience this Pueblo Magico (think @thejoshuatreehouse meets the ocean) We are still going to be full time RVers and live in Dita on the property as well as travel, mainly throughout Baja and a few parts of the US. We also plan to open our photography studio / gallery here.
We would like to invite everyone to experience the magic that we feel everyday we are here, to discover Todos Santos, a beautiful desert oasis bordered by the Pacific Ocean. The property officially becomes ours mid April. Stay tuned and can’t wait to share more!
Ps. To our families, we are so grateful for the encouragement and support. We love you.
Apparently it was National Love Your Pet Day yesterday, so here’s a picture of Señor Bowie looking super chill even though he’s the complete opposite. Kidding 😏 We love this little rascal and are so grateful for all the JOY and laughter he’s brought into our lives.
Meet @thelongwaysouthsarah - our feature woman this week! “My fiancé and I have been together since high school and have always wanted to travel together.
In 2009, shortly after graduating college, we embarked on our first road trip where we toured the U.S. for six months living in the back of our ’96 Dodge Ram pickup. It was a very simple life and we fell in love with life on the road immediately.
In 2012, we decided to take our travels further and drove the same truck with the same set up from Maine, USA to Argentina following the Pan American Highway.
We took two years to complete this trip and knew this would be a lifestyle we would need to incorporate in our lives no matter what.
Since then, we have had a couple different travel rigs that we take to Baja in the winter. We take four months off each winter and travel across the U.S to Baja and back.
Currently, we are in Baja enjoying our new rig- an ’07 Dodge Ram with a Four Wheel Camper!”
Today is our 6-year nomadiversary! We’re celebrating when we let go of the things that tied us down, and started our life of full-time travel.
On our other travel blog, Jeepsies, we reflect on the past year and look forward to what’s to come. Link in bio! 🔗

This time last year we were boondocking outside of Joshua Tree National Park. It’s one of our top camping locations! The wildflowers were in full bloom and it was beautiful. +
Wintering in SoCal last year was nice because we were near family and explored new areas, but it was chilly at times!
The Florida weather has been amazing and it seriously feels like summer vacation or something! We do miss all the boondocking available in the West! However, spending all winter with tons and tons of friends doing typical “summer” activities has been amazing! We’re in the water almost every day and are experiencing winter tans for the first time ever! +
But really, anywhere with these three is where I want to be. I’m at home with them, wherever that may be ❤️
