AshLivin Video #13: Nicaragua

And we're back! It's been a long time since our last video, but we're excited to be back with the latest AshLivin video update - this one's all about Nicaragua! From the cool, coffee-rich mountains of the North to the sweltering colonial cities and touristy beaches of the South, Nicaragua has a little of everything. Check out our month exploring Central America's largest country:



And for a short teaser of the action, check out our Nicaragua highlights reel here:

AshLivin Video #12: Honduras

Filled with beautiful national parks and even more amazing people, Honduras was nothing like what you hear about in the news. We absolutely loved our month in this amazing country, and it quickly became one of our favorites that we've visited on this trip. Hope you enjoy our latest video update!


And if you have less time, here's a highlight reel!

AshLivin Video #11: El Salvador

Back in May, after a brief stint at home in California, we returned to Central America and met back up with Taisa and Ernesto and traveled through El Salvador, hopping between beaches, volcanos, and cloud forests! Hope you enjoy our latest travelogue!

(Depending on where you are in the world, you might have to watch it on a computer instead of a mobile phone - my apologies!)

We're back!


It's been a while, so we just wanted to check in and let you know what's been happening recently. After almost 2 months in Guatemala, we went home to spend some quality time with fam and friends and to attend Sebastian and Diane's wedding in Santa Barbara (congrats!)! 

In the beginning of May, we flew back to Guatemala to pick up our car where we left it (at an auto shop called ARB Guatemala) and had a few new things installed: an awning to keep us cool/dry/bug free, and a new battery charger! Gracias Humberto!

Then it was off to El Salvador! We met up with our friends Taisa and Ernesto ( and have been driving around El Salvador for the last few weeks with them. A video update about this small but amazing country will come eventually, but for now, here are some pictures and short vids to keep you entertained :)



Congrats Seb and Diane! Thanks for including us in your big day!

AshLivin Video #10: Guatemala

Over the last ~2 months traveling through Guatemala we've visited some breathtaking locations with some incredible new friends. This country and its people could not have been more welcoming - thank you! Special shout out to the amazing duo Tiasa and Ernesto, with whom we traveled overland for 5 weeks straight! Thanks for tolerating us and we can't wait to keep traveling together! For a click-able table of contents of locations, watch the video directly on Youtube @

Volcán de Fuego

Just a brief update... while Liv was getting some alone time while nursing her knee (sorry Liv!), I hiked up the inactive Volcán Acatenango (over 5000 vertical feet!, with a summit at 13000 ft) with the hopes of seeing the nearby active Volcán de Fuego erupt. Fuego didn't disappoint...

It was certainly the most powerful natural phenomenon I've ever seen. I stayed up all night photographing and filming this beautiful beast in total awe. Following these immense eruptions, molten rocks tumbled down the cone of this 3,763m volcano for nearly 5 minutes. 10 minutes later, volcanic ash began raining down on us a few kms away.
