Dog-friendly travel

Yes, you can travel overland with your dog(s)! We have met many travelers in the Americas with their dogs, and most of them were like us–not the richest, not the most organized, not the most Spanish-speaking. If you want to…

Pony Homecoming

We got our van back! Tuesday afternoon, as Team USA was losing to Team Belgium, we took Milo in a rental car and drove down to Port Hueneme in Ventura County. We were a bit apprehensive, as the month of…

Rolling through

Colombia continues to be very good to us, with beautiful mountains, pleasant weather, great people, and relaxed times. The agricultural strikes restricted our movement a little, but we clearly didn’t mind, hanging out in San Gil and Barichara, waiting out…

Bits and bites, nine months in

Today marks nine months on the road, and we have been observing this milestone by holing up in an air-conditioned hotel in Granada. The current mood has a bit to do with travel fatigue, a bit to do with heat…
