About JoefromTO

I’m an aspiring world traveller. I’ll be taking my family of five on the road for a year to see where it leads us. While I’m writing this there is approximately 10 months till we hit the road with our backpacks. Till then I’ll be teaching and trying to survive being a dad.

Our Marvelous stay in Bonda, Colombia

Where we were on the first day of school Charo and I have been planning this trip for the past 4 years. Actually, Charo has, as you know I’m just along for the ride.

Travel Buddies by Marco

Welcome to travel buddies where Mateo, Daniela,and me (Marco) write about our travels. It’s pretty much a kid version of Joe from T.O Mateo Mateo likes to play soccer and is almost always ready to help somebody. He can be wild at times but he doesn't hurt anybody on purpose. Mateo along with his sister Daniela make friends easily. Also, Mateo loves waffles. Daniela Daniela is the calmest of the three. She is also the most friendly. Daniela is a good reader for her age. She likes to go spelunking (Cave exploring.) Me (Marco) I like to read and play video games. My favorite sport is basketball I also like to surf. I can’t make friends as easily as Mateo and Daniela. I also love to eat mango Note: The mango is bigger in person. Bye!!

4 Family Friendly Nights in Manuel Antonio

Eleven years ago Charo and I went backpacking for a month through Costa Rica and Nicaragua. I remember landing in San Jose and going on different chicken buses to get to Quepos so we could go to Manuel Antonio park. It was a long day of travel. When we planned our adventure, we knew that Manuel Antonio was a go-to spot. […]
