Today's vlog begins in San Diego on Fiesta Island where we wake up next to our skoolie buddies Tio Aventura and our favourite solo female traveler Aubry! We begin the episode by giving you a conversion tour of Aubry's BEAUTIFUL tiny home on wheels and then say goodbye to our dear friends as we depart for Mexico! Along the way, we realize that we are both feel some anxiety about adventuring through Mexico alone and chat a little bit about these fears with you. As always, you can count on us to share lots of delicious vegan food and a few hearty laughs x
We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!

Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Toronto-based couple who live full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! SUBSCRIBE for wanderlust travel, behind the scenes of what it's really like to live in a van, and videos all about the yummy vegan food we make + eat!
We post new videos every Wednesday + Sunday AND a new, easy vegan recipe every Friday :)
Our goal here is to inspire you to chase after your own dreams however big (or small... tiny homes anyone?) they may be! We hope to create a community of like-minded, positive individuals who will grow to love and support one another on their own journeys.

  • Such love is admirable. Especially when you are driving around in a Mercedes sprinter and making room for enormous quantities of expensive vegan food and stopping to get waxed before you go to Baja to hang out. I hope all your viewers look at this as a fairy tale, not realistic.

You mentioned fast food vegan place, which there is plant power (if you were in OB you likely were there) but also evolution fast food near balboa.. And another cafe gratitude in little Italy!

  • Thanks for another great video Eamon & Bec. We are starting our van life next year, unfortunately we will be working 6 months of the year to invest for our retirement one day, however it is a start. I have watched countless videos for the last 3 weeks on the construction of a van, which we will be buying the extended Ford Transit this spring. After the last 18 years travelling all of the central-west US, I have a desire of heading to Mexico, my wife has no desire for she is worried we will get robbed, raped and murdered. lol I'm hoping after a few years travelling south and east US, she might feel more comfortable with van life and try Mexico.

  • Growing up in San Diego, me and the homies began partying in Mexico [fake id's] at 15. By the time I left for University I was all partied out, so turning 21 wasn't such a big deal lol Btw, the boxes were a GREAT idea!

  • That border crossing brings back memories we used to spend loads of time down in Baja ,but the best border crossing was going back into the USA,we had a tradition of stopping at McDonald’s it was usually our first American burger in sometimes months (we were homeschooled,so could stay long periods)

I would love to see you guys when you get back, you can plug in at my house off the 401 here and use one of my vacant rental units if you want., Heading down that way to MX when I sell my house is one of my options. Panama also.

  • i was born in mexico but shortly after we moved to the states, and let me tell you the amount of joy and relief we feel everytime we cross the border back into mexico is insane everytime we have to cross to or back it is so scary and raises my anxiety because like you guys said it is a completely different country and mexico isnt the safety at the moment so you’re always thinking about the what ifs but i feel like once you tell yourself its okay im going to be okay is when you can truly experience the culture and beauty mexico has to offer ❤️

  • Vegan Mayo : 1/2 cup of aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpease), 1 teaspoon lemon juice, salt, 1+1/2 cups of neutral oil. Combine the aquafab, lemon juice, salt in a small bowl. Using an immersion blender (I think you guys have it in the van?) on medium high speeds pour in the oil in a very slow steady stream. The aquafaba will start to stiffen and expand. it only takes a few minutes :) store for about a week! Love your content guys! Keep it going! Happy you feel better Eamon :) Go bec for popcorn!
