We've been fortunate enough to escape the Canadian winter and the bitter cold, snowy weather we've had there this year by driving 6000 kms away from home to Baja California Sur, Mexico. Ever wondered what it'd be like to pack yourself into a tiny house and head south with the birds?! We'll show ya ;)
Today's van life vlog begins in Cabo Pulmo National Park where we jump right into our first snorkel in this beautiful underwater marine world! Then, in true van life Mexico fashion we get our tiny house stuck in some soft sand on the beach... thank goodness for our Max Traxx! As Eamon says "the most consistent thing about life in Baja California is the sunsets" so we enjoy a beautiful one with you and head to sleep! Day 2 begins with a failed water sport event and a grumpy Bec. Don't fret, we can't stay grumpy for long when we live in our van on a stunning beach for FREE! We then head into town for some essentials and back out to another snorkel spot along the national park. The vlog wraps with a tour of our new friends tiny house (it's a motorcycle and a tent!) and a camp fire sing along! AHHHH, van life in Baja 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!!
The Traveling Van Life in Mexico; hot, sticky, but oh so much fun!

I want to thank you for going to my country and loving the atmosphere, the people, the music 😭 on a different note I honestly always eat tortilla tacos with salt but you guys added an extra to it with the avocados (I know it's not this video but still lol) I'm for sure trying that next! Thank you for loving my country and coming to visit ♡🇲🇽 cannot wait to finish watching the rest of you guys videos 😂

Just wondering, do you need a place to park your van, do some laundry or a hot shower? Let me know. We are in the Cabo Bello neighborhood, across from the Home Depot.

But it is still amazing and beautiful during spring when all the buds on the cherrie tree bloom day into flowers. The one downside is that during summer our mulberry tree just covers our driveway with mulberrys

    Alisa BlumbergAlisa BlumbergIl y a an
  • Hi, can you please consider not using the super racist Mexican stereotype accent?

    Callie BarfieldCallie BarfieldIl y a an
    • Callie Barfield I still don’t see the racism in this case, sorry. I think we just have different world views. When we can start to see that most people (even white people) are good with good intentions and human consciousness is on the rise that’s when the shift will really happen.

      Holly WildeHolly WildeIl y a an
    • @Holly Wilde great question. Here's a link that might be helpful- though addressing how imitating Asian accents is racist, it would apply across any accent of a population that has historically/currently faced systematic oppression from white people. "[The fake accent] echoes, if not embodies, elements of minstrelsy. In this racist American comedic tradition, white performers donned blackface makeup and depicted America’s black population as lazy and simple-minded." The accent Ehmon is using is typically used as a form of mockery- to portray Mexicans as stupid. Even if that's not his intention, it's a form of a microagression toward Mexican people. It's important to remember that just because someone's intention isn't to spread hate, it can still be racist. Racism takes lots of different forms. When we can start to recognize the ways in which all white people are racist (not just the neo-nazis, KKK, etc.) We can start to dismantle the systems that oppress people of Color. I hope that makes sense, let me know if you have more questions. Happy to discuss further!

      Callie BarfieldCallie BarfieldIl y a an
    • Callie Barfield Why is it racist to emulate an accent? What does an accent have to do with race? Please explain. My grandma was Texan and I liked to do her accent. It’s good natured teasing nothing more. If I thought there was something inherently wrong with her accent I wouldn’t have teased her about it. Do you think there is something inherently wrong with the Mexicans’ accent? I think the most racist people on the planet are the ones who are always pointing their finger at others. The ones who walk on eggshells around another human beings solely based on race.

      Holly WildeHolly WildeIl y a an
    • @Holly Wilde I want to encourage you to consider what about my comment upset you so much that you felt the need to tell me to chill. Is there something about your own behaviors that makes you uncomfortable with this type of criticism?

      Callie BarfieldCallie BarfieldIl y a an
    • Chill Callie. It’s an actual accent not a “stereotype”. You’re over judging.

      Holly WildeHolly WildeIl y a an
  • Loving the beefy vlogs, keep ‘me coming por favor. You have to post a Spotify playlist of all the songs you pick up in Mexico.
