How we arrived in Ajijic, Mexico.
While cruising the Bahamas on our sailboat "Pipe Dream" in the Spring of 2007 we were anchored next to Lee and Charly on "Windstar4". Over a few rums we talked about our trip to Mexico and found out that Lee and Charly had recently bought a house in Ajijic, Jalisco. On our Mexican trip we had skipped Ajijic. After reading about the Ajijic's large expat community, we felt it would probably be as disappointing as San Miguel de Allende. Lee and Charly convinced us to visit them in the summer. We took them up on their offer, fell in love with the place, rented a house for a while and ended up buying a place in September of 2008.

Welcome to our new blog about our Mexican Adventures. After 9 years of cruising the oceans on a sailboat we have moved to Ajijic, Mexico. If you are interested to read about our sailing adventure on "Pipe Dream", check out our blog at http://www.pipedreamadventures.blogspot.com
It's really about us. We love to roam about the world in search of new adventures.
We have been cruising on our sailboat "Pipe Dream" for the past eight years. We left San Diego in 2000, cruised along the coasts of Mexico, Central America, through the Panama Canal, then onto the Western Caribbean to Florida, north to New York and Rhode Island and back south to the Bahamas.
We have recently bought a house in Ajijic, Mexico, on beautiful Lake Chapala.
Meanwhile we have sold our sailboat. We will continue to live in Mexico and keep traveling.
This blog is about our life in Mexico and our continued travel adventures.
