Golden Getaway

This is our journey flying, driving, camping, hiking, skipping, running, jumping & backpacking from Dubai to the States and down into the depths of South America.

JOURNAL – WITH LOVE FROM ABOVE

It wasn’t meant to happen this way – but then again… life happens when you’re busy making plans. JJ: With a heavy heart and tear filled eyes, this will be my final entry (although I will still send shout outs from heaven). For those of you who haven’t […]

CHAPTER 35 – FOREIGN BONDS

Farewell surfer’s paradise! With our new found friends in tow, we headed back up the volcanoes toward the first colonial city of Central America… Gorgeous Antigua!!! We parked the van at a gas station and spent the next few days exploring this breath-taking city with our temporary roommates. […]

CHAPTER 34 – SURFERS PARADISE

We left the cool mountainous breeze of Lake Atitlan and headed south to a lesser traveled region of  Guatemala. Jenna: Not many holiday makers venture to Guatemala’s coast, rather they stick to the tourist routes. Fair play… People say it’s dangerous out there… BUT we wanted sand and surf so the […]

CHAPTER 32 – PUSHING FORWARD

We said our good byes to Crystal Auto Rental Belize with our heads held high – Jenna: It was a moment that held much disappointment as our lack of payment for services rendered was finally confirmed. Our everything was invested into that project – physical effort, finances, time and […]

JOURNAL – OBLIVIOUS TO COMPASSION…

CAUTION: The following images are uncensored & raw. Doggy lovers beware. There are some things I struggle to understand. Things I’ve only witnessed in the 3rd world. Yesterday I struggled once again. All dogs on the farm were neutered by two American vets inside the vehicle workshop. It was a conveyor belt of fear. Whilst the men […]

INSPIRE ME – DRAWN TO WATER

The past 6 months have been such an adventure. The freedom to roam off the beaten track and explore such beauty cements our drive to press on down to South America. When we sit back and relive the moments captured, it is shocking how far we have traveled and even more how […]

CHAPTER 30 – LOST AT SEA

The Jungle… The Farm… TWO MONTHS STRAIGHT – NO BREAKS! We were hungry for an adventure so off to Caye Caulker we go! JAY JUNIOR (aka JJ): You two have been talking about taking me away from all the dirt, heat and flies for weeks. Come on now, let’s go bitches!!! […]

JUST YESTERDAY – WINDING DOWN

This place is magical. It is the uncommercial tropics – wooden huts, vibrant colours, a turquoise ocean, palm trees galore and to top it off, the locals greet us with so much warmth. We’ve spent the past few days exploring the tiny island and winding down from our 2 month […]

JUST YESTERDAY – the GREAT ESCAPE

2 months on a farm changes a person and we needed a break… and FAST! This picture depicts how we are feeling!!! Lets get pissed, let’s get naked and lets spend our chump change… We left Belize City yesterday and headed towards Caye Caulker (still don’t know how to pronounce […]

JOURNAL – I JADORE JEWELRY

I have a passion for jewelry… It is a love affair – that will last forever.   Jenna: In my living room in Dubai I had 4 prominent, all glass, display cabinets that showcased all pieces i’d made and collected over the years. It was magnificent! I spent […]

CHAPTER 28 – OUR PARADISE in BELIZE

We left Hopkins and headed towards Placencia… We did not know what was in store, standard, but were excited for the journey and having come from anti-dog-Hopkins, we needed to find a place that was more dog friendly. Who would not love this face? The road leading to Placencia is […]

JUST YESTERDAY – OUR FIRST DATE

JAY JUNIOR (aka JJ): I’m two years old and live on a farm. Wow time flies – only feels like yesterday I was being turfed out of a packed warm jiggly sack with some other ugly-looking mutts and 6itchs – don’t know much about anything. Then these two come along and boom – life […]

CHAPTER 23 – FROM LAND TO SEA

We left Bacalar and headed towards Cancun Airport… We dropped off our beloved Sacha safe and sound headed on her own adventure and the road of mother hood. She will certainly rise to the challenge. We had our own adventure to embark on. Isle Mujeres. We knew nothing of this […]
