This one time we drove 4 hours south of San Diego to visit the parents’ of some dear friends. Of course there were stops along the way to either check out a vista or try some good food. Unspoiled coastline greeted us at our destination, and we witnessed a small taste of what it’s like to “live off the grid.” What we ended up carrying with us, from that weekend road trip, was inspiration to take risks and to keep exploring the world together. A month later we packed up our things and took a 6 week road trip out to Michigan – a new place to call “home.” We’ve only been here for about 3 months, but we are happy to have taken that chance. Everyone keeps telling us that “winter is coming”… well, maybe not Game of Thrones bad. Our days have been sunnier than usual around this time of year, but really, winter is coming. So for now we will relish these summer Baja California, Mexico photos and begin to make plans to explore more warmer places.
