We've covered a lot of ground since we returned to the USA from Mexico in August. It's starting to feel like we need a vacation from all this traveling! Next week we're headed to One Fire Hot Yoga Festival in Puerto Morelos, Mexico to lead some seminars and we were interviewed about our yoga journey.
One of the most common questions we get about our nomadic lifestyle is what are we doing about school for the kids? Some people are simply curious. Others aspire to travel more long term with their children and seem to be looking for a "How To" guide. And others still seem genuinely horrified by the fact that by traveling we are denying our children a "normal" education. So this is an attempt to answer some of those questions, but honestly, we mostly fly by the seat of our pants!
In our experience, new opportunities present themselves when you're able to be truly open. And sometimes this means taking a leap of faith, changing dreams, or changing directions without knowing exactly what's on the other side.
Borders are just imaginary lines on maps, right? Wrong! We had a few challenges crossing the border from Mexico into Guatemala: "lost" tourist visas, importing the Earthroamer, pushy men trying to "help" direct us, a new currency, and re-learning normal life stuff in a new country. But the Guatemalan highlands were incredible!
Oaxaca is home to mole, mezcal, handicrafts, textiles, and most things "Mexico." But already running behind schedule, and with an upcoming yoga event on the other side of Mexico, we were planning to briefly sample Oaxaca and then move on. But truck trouble kept us there much longer than we had planned!
