Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch Jungle Lodge

Caves Branch is a once-in-a-lifetime typa thing that should be experienced again and again. What is it, you ask? Give me two minutes… Let me start by saying that the website of Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch Jungle Lodge heeds the following warning, “Please Remember, Caves Branch is  NOT a resort-we are a unique Jungle Adventure…

Tikal (& a Li’L Flores)

You can’t research traveling to Guatemala without seeing ads pop up for cultural excursions to the ruins of Tikal. Tikal is a beautifully preserved Mayan village with it’s earliest remains dating back to 1000 BC. It’s massive and in order to explore the entirety of the space, you’d need 2-3 days. We took the recommendation…

Antigua, Guatemala

Antigua, girl, you have our hearts. This city is like finding a slight tear the fabric of our universe and finding a teeny spot where absolutely everything is beautiful. The architecture, the landscaping, the people, the energy, all of it vibrant and inviting. The jewel of the city itself are the incredible hotels. Many of…

Lago Atitlan

I don’t know what Lake Como really looks like but from my understanding, it’s pretty much the Elfin land of my LOTR dreams. Lake Atitlan seems like the Central American Lake Como… Without all the yachts and champagne. The lake is a mesmerizing turquoise color and surrounding volcanoes are often backlit by lightening.

Puerto Escondido, baby

Womp womp womb. Aside…

How to Capture Your Journey

In 1980, my mom and dad moved into an RV they called ‘Kuyuktuvuk’. They had been married for about one month and their thirst for adventure, quite like ours, could not be ignored. The two of them spent about twelve months traveling the country, photographing landscapes, their friends, one another, and my mother was there…

Montana Lee is my hero

Yes, Instagram shares our story with the world – a fractured version, one that is curated to grab an entire day and shrink it down into one moment that encapsulates the feelings of the afternoon. The single shot is not always enough however. We want to grab more than our morning coffee, the scenery we…

We were on Business Insider!!

A couple of weeks ago Melia Robinson sent us an introductory email asking if we’d be interested in sharing our van life story for an article to be posted on Business Insider. After choking on our own spit from shock and excitement, we were able to compose ourselves enough to write back something to the…
