Budget Travel Tips by a Full Time Traveller

My teen and I have been living the budget travel life full time for almost 2 years now, but we have actually been living a fairly extreme budget life since he was a baby. I was/am a single mom, trying to balance my time spent with him and my time working to pay our bills, so living on a tight budget just became a way of life for us. Over the years I learned how to…

Low Budget Living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

First Taste of Low Budget Living To be fair, we have been experienced at low budget living for most of Seth’s life. So technically this isn’t a new thing. However, this is our first time living somewhere that we’re not struggling to get bills paid, since the average cost of living is a fraction of what we were used to in our old life. But… I digress.

I feel silly even writing it out because it’s so darn easy. But since…

The BEST Mexican Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole is basically LIFE here in Mexico. At least for me, anyways ;). It’s the first thing I look for on a restaurant menu, and pretty much order it everywhere I go! (Manne’s has the best guac in Playa, if you’re wondering!) So it pretty much blows my mind when people are confused about how to make it… It just seems so simple! After getting asked SO many times how I make it, I’ve decided…

Unchooling with No Support System: It Gets Better!

I wanted to share a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ moment with you all… Especially with those of you that have a hard time with family and their judgment about your chosen lifestyle in regards to unschooling and worldschooling. 3 years ago my then-11 yr old son and I made the jump into homeschooling. Unschooling to be specific. When our family found out, they were far from impressed. The typical questions arose: What…

40 Tips for Travelling Single and with Children

The thought of travelling as a single mom, woman or parent can be a little unnerving and intimidating at times. When we first set out to road trip the United States for 3 months, I was quite nervous about how to travel as a single woman, alone with her child. After a week in New York City I learned that most of my fears were in my head, and that as long as we practiced…
