Lima Beaches The coastline of Lima and its surroundings is over 3,000 km long, but it’s almost impossible to swim here. Who’s to blame? The above-mentioned cold Humboldt Current. There are some exceptions though: a few beaches in the northern part of the suburbs, which the warm El Niño current flows by. But even these places are only comfortable to [...]
Climate Lima is located in a tropical zone, so we expected warm weather and occasional showers. But the climate is unique in the capital: it’s a tropical desert! It rains here almost as rarely as in the Sahara. The city’s [...]
The next stop in our journey around Latin America was Peru, the cradle of the ancient Inca civilization, a country with incredible history and magnificent natural landmarks. We decided to stay in Lima, as it’s easier to study the culture [...]
After visiting Punta del Este and relaxing on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, we decided to go searching for a genuine colonial colour that we missed in Montevideo so much. We heard a lot about a special place called [...]
Montevideo is a city with nice beaches, but the water there is dirty, which makes it totally unfit for bathing and water amusements. We started to miss classic seaside holidays, so we decided to go to Punta del Este, the [...]

Hello there! We’re Michael & Helen, and our twin boys Michael Jr. & Robert. We love travels. We’ve been on the go our entire lives, and it’s our choice not to have a single place to call home. Instead, we travel every month to a new city, exploring the world, the cultures, the cuisines. Every month we decide upon our next destination and head for a new place that will be our home for this period.
Our travels changed us a lot and now we love how our kids too evolve during our journeys. Life on the move unites us: we learn to adapt to new situations and rely on each other more and more.
We would love to share stories of our travels around the globe, and we hope that you’ll be inspired to explore the world on your own together with your family. Our stories will show you how fun it is, no matter how small the kids are. So, take the trip together with us via this blog!
