When we set off in search of a life less ordinary two years ago, this is not what we were looking for. We never imagined anything like a worldwide pandemic was just around the corner. We tried to prepare for as many eventualities as we could think of before we departed...

See what I did there? Dazzled you with my español right? You'd be forgiven for assuming that after 18 months of living in Mexico we'd be well on the way to fluency, but in all honestly my español could only be described as execrable. Daz is much bet...

After the drama of the previous week and the horrific morning with the pump-out, we were looking forward to a few quiet days for a change - you know, the type of days we were expecting when we went cruising - morning coffee on deck, sunny days, gently rocking at anchor...
