Let us Introduce Ourselves!

We are Karl, Leah and Oz Wolf. In early 2018, we decided to pursue an overland expedition from Boulder, CO to Ushuaia, Patagonia. For us, international travel is not only an opportunity to pursue some of the best adventures in the world, it’s also an opportunity to connect to a broader community and learn more about other cultures. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you in our blogs, photographs and trip reports.

    What a wonderful trip. While in the Yucatan, there are lots of cenote, caves and underground rivers. Check out
    The Ek Balaam ruins near Chicken Itza. They are small but have a great example of carved and painted decoration recently uncovered. Valladolid is a beautiful town where the Mexican revolution began. Merida is a large colonial city with beautiful architecture but may be a bit tame for you. For info check Yucatantoday.com.
