Roadtrip in old VW with a baby

A road trip with a baby in a vintage VW van: in 3 months from Mexico to Costa Rica. ‘You are going to do what?! With a baby? But…? And..? Uhm….?‘ Yeah, the same kind of questions have crossed our minds when thinking of this plan. There are a lot of buts, maybes and uhms to think of and sometimes it makes us nervous too.. However those are just the kind of questions and challenges we love[…]

Back in Mexico and our family is growing

Since a couple of weeks we are back in Mexico for another nine months of Digital Nomad fun. This time we will probably be traveling a little bit less than last year.

Our first child, Isa, was born in Mexico and we loved being here just with the[…]

As you can see in the pictures we weighed her on a very accurate[…]

We are offline 6 weeks for our maternity and paternity leave

We have the great opportunity to give form to the ideal way for us to receive a new life into this world. We decided to take a long maternity and paternity leave the entire month of November and probably a bit of December too. Our MacBooks are nicely wrapped in a ribbon and we go offline to be fully present for the birth of our baby (boy or girl) and completely focus on the first[…]
