RV DIY, Part 1
With temperatures soaring to the low 100's here in South Texas, we knew it was time to stop procrastinating and get to work on our do-it-yourself window shades. Our goal was to create something that not only kept the heat and the sunlight out, but also looked appealing and professional.
Using room-darkening curtains, we made our own RV-darkening, heat-suppressing curtains for our tiny home.
Sounds of Cuba
Often, while planning for international travels, we prepare ourselves by listening to the music of that country.
Free Things to Do in Havana
As budget-conscious travelers, we love finding fun free things to do in each city we visit. With plenty of museums, outdoor street art, and exceptional places for people-watching, when it comes to free entertainment, Havana has it all!
Check out our list of free don't-miss activities in Havana, Cuba!
Located only 103 miles from the coast of Florida, until the 1950's Cuba was a trendy vacation destination for movie stars like John Wayne and Ava Gardner and singers like Frank Sinatra. Following the Cuban Revolution, the embargo of the late 50's and Kennedy's travel ban of 1963 brought Cuban getaways to an abrupt halt. For over five decades, Americans were restricted from visiting the island nation of Cuba. But in 2016, after President Obama visited Cuba and eased travel restrictions, Americans again began making the short flight from Florida cities down to Havana and Santiago. However, the changes in 2016 did not entirely open up Cuba for US tourism, and certain restrictions still apply.
Our step-by-step guide to visiting Cuba as an American will provide you with the necessary procedures should you wish to visit Cuba yourself.
Welcome to our final list of RV essentials for full-time RVers. If you are brand new, we hope these lists have been helpful as you prepare for your leap into the world of full-time RVing. For those of our visitors who are seasoned veterans, we hope you've found some inspiration for your travels as well.
Some of the items you'll see in this list are items that you may be able to live without, but we include them because they have been incredibly helpful for us.
Welcome to the second installment of our "Full-Time RVing Essentials" list! We hope you found some inspiration from part one, and we hope part two is just as helpful.
When we first started on this journey, we were excited about the prospect of seeing the country, moving at our own pace, and learning new skills. But we, or at least I, had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, and quite a bit of on-the-spot learning occurred during those first few months. Of course, we're still making new discoveries every day, but now that we have a better idea of what is needed for full-time RVing, we want to share our acquired knowledge with you.
Today marks the six-month anniversary of our sojourn in our tiny home. In the past six months, we have traveled through five states, spending the majority of our time in South Texas. During the past six months, our main teachers have been our own mistakes, others' mistakes, and trial and error. We have discovered several items that have made RV life much easier for us, and we would like to share those must-have items with you so you can learn from our trial and error.
