Today's vlog begins at a beautiful free camp spot in Baja Mexico with some new vanlifer friends. While hanging out with them we realize that we’ve made our first HUGE mistake of overlanding in Mexico and need to retrace our steps (in turn adding on a 7 hour detour to our plans). We hope you learn from our misstep and do your research when planning on driving your converted van around Mexico Baja Peninsula and Mainland.
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.

  • Hey guys! short question - do you have any connections/tips for people who are vanlife'ing in Mexico (main land)? I live in Tulum now and would love to drive around the country but as I'm a solo female traveler, I would like to get more informed about states to avoid safety-wise etc. first! Thanks! :)

  • Just a quick tip as an American living in Ecuador: the more Spanish you learn, the better your experience in Spanish-speaking places will be! It's amazing to learn as you go along, but it can also be extremely helpful to do research and studying into better pronunciation and common vocabulary. While of course you cannot be expected to become fluent from one trip, my experience has been that I am best able to connect with the culture when I am able to understand the language. Not to say I am fluent either, but after six months of living here I am finally able to have relationships with locals fully in Spanish- which has been one of the absolute highlights of my time! :) If I could recommend ONE thing to improve your Spanish, I would say work on the pronunciation of "r" - it's very different and integral to the language!

      ColinColinIl y a an
    • Yes it is!! But we were advised that those visiting Baja Peninsula don’t need any of these permits and if you want to cross to mainland you can get all permits at the ferry... it’s not not true we just decided not to take the risk after speaking to a few travelers who told us second hand stories of some people having trouble at the ferry

  • You know what you guys. I don' think you must have wales, surfing, snorkeling and what so ever to create "great videos". This video was magical! Lately you´ve been killing it with being real and just creating awesome and beautiful videos. And the footage with the drone. WOW. I got tears when you described rainbows. "So for me this is just a magical moment" and theen boom the drone! It just show that the more you practise, the better you get at it. You guys are GREAT filmcreators! Lots of love and keep up the good job!
