There’s a difference between good tacos and just tacos, good tacos are more likely to be in less-fancy buildings without flashy signage.
Processing your Mexican temporary residency is much harder than they make it sound.
Really should have learned more Spanish before getting on the plane.
Even a nice Hilton hotel is still, in the end, just a hotel.
It’s amazing how terrible a car can be to still be listed for sale here. I looked at a car for 60,000 pesos (just under $5,000AUD) and I think someone was murdered in it but it wasn’t cleaned.
Horses, livestock, dogs and other animals all just roam free here. Must be tough for fencers to not be needed.
Lawns don’t exist here unless you’re in a fancy place. It’d be hard to move here if your identity was built on how good your lawn is.
Very few Australians are here or have visited here. Many people are surprised to hear we travelled so far.
Should’ve stopped for a night or two in Los Angeles. 26 hours door to door was a lot for two toddlers.
Always buy bottled water.
Oysters taste different here. Bad different.
I had to drive on the other side of the road for the first time in three years in the presence of a Mexican man whose car I was test driving. He must have spent the whole time wondering why a person who drove this bad wanted to buy a car.
Money transfers internationally are never as quick as you’d imagine, especially over a weekend.
There’s little consistency between different offices of Mexican authorities. There’s very much a local spirit in the decisions they make.
We love it here.
It’s quite hot.
Buy a good pram and travel cot, they’re worth their weight in gold.
Pack light, you don’t need all that stuff.
There are no Ubers, Didis, Lyfts or taxis in Todos Santos.
