Florida – Again

Once again, it's time to hit the road. As this is our first visit to New Mexico, we decided to extend our travel days a little bit and enjoy a small road trip. The journey from our house sit in New Mexico to the next one in Texas led us South along New Mexico Highway... Continue Reading →

Most of the trail is covered by Highway 14, which also runs right next to the house we were sitting. Highway 14 is about 50 miles long and encompasses 15,000 square miles of culture and history. We explored... Continue Reading →

The last leg of our American road trip (#VanLife Part 3) takes us through every southern state on our way to Florida. Our first stop was a house sit for a retired couple who live completely off-grid in the New Mexico high desert with their two dogs. We spent merely three weeks in this desert oasis,...
