Great road tunes are like a great relationship. You start off smilin’, with Michael Franti, lovin’ the world and the world lovin’ you back. Then you move into a smooth groove, cruising down the road of life with Peter Wolf and Mick on background vocals. Then just when things start to get a little sleepy, in come the Kinks to make you sit up and remember why you’re alive. Any way you look at it Al Green is here to stay, just like that amazing person in the seat next to you. Life is goodhit the road Jack.

In October 2012, I drove 6,800 kms with my artist husband, Ric Kokotovich (, and my dog Iggy, to spend 6 months in our adopted city of Merida. Leaving the fast paced world of Calgary behind, I packed my books, art and entrepreneurial spirit, and set off to explore what lay beyond the borders that had become my life. In October 2013 we hit the road south again, hoping to find out what ‘living the dream’ really means. This is my adventure.
