The Good

Food: This GBU edition is late because well, we have just been too busy eating.  After we left Mexico, we consoled ourselves through most of Central America with the knowledge that good food was waiting for us in South America. We put our heads down and powered...

I love receiving book recommendations from family and friends. Books demand our time and attention to finish and with time feeling like our most precious resource these days,  a persons curated book list reveals a lot. The books we expose ourselves to reflect where we...

The Good

  • $1.45/gallon for gas since 1/1/18 - that's all. 

  • Ecuador:  We spent 53 days in this spectacular little country. It is the first country since Mexico we feel like we did right. While the surf report (a high of its own) drove our schedule, we did get to...

The afternoon sun shines bright and hard on the beach here in Sinaloa, Mexico. The still air and glassy waves of my morning surf have been overtaken by the onshore wind, leaving a white capped mess in its wake. I contemplate kicking off a semi-productive project, but t...

When in doubt, say yes. To people, to experiences, to new ideas, to anything that excites or intrigues you. Why? Because I’ve never heard of someone’s life changing by saying no.  And a yes, like a yes to a date, could mean you end up meeting a person that changes ever...

The Good

  • In real life (because we can all agree this is not real life), Nick and I were both drawn to life in the fast lane. The extrovert in each of us has a hard time saying no because we both draw a ton of our energy and inspiration from being around people and t...

Baja

If you’re wondering if you should go to Baja California, you should. It’s neither California or mainland Mexico, but as the name suggests, it’s a marriage of both places on one small peninsula. Tijuana and Ensenada are starting to meaningfully compete with San Dieg...
