Have you ever walked in somewhere and thought to yourself, “I don’t know how this place got started and I definitely don’t know how it’s still going”? Well, that’s exactly what I thought when we walked into the Space Murals Museum just outside Las Cruces, New Mexico. Driving down highway 70 you can spot the giant painted steel tank from a good distance away, however if we had not already had this roadside attraction on our radar, we wouldn't have known it was open for business. We were greeted by a nice woman reading a book and smoking a cigarette. She casually let us know we were free to roam and take as many photos as we like. There was no fee, just a donation box and a dusty gift shop. We of course headed straight for the outdoor rocket garden (where the murals are).
Chelsea and Jeremy just returned to the states after 3 years of living in South Korea teaching English. They made good money, traveled to lots of new countries and have decided to share their Make Money and Travel story with us.This adventurous couple saved up enough money over seas to return home, renovate a 30ft RV and should be hitting the road any day now! How they ended up in Korea is very similar as to why a lot of us get started with full time travel. Chelsea and Jeremy were terrified of the idea of settling down after getting married, "you know, house, car, and little things running around in diapers". They have what we call a case of Sedentary Lifeaphobia. So, they packed it all up and moved to the island of Geoje, South Korea to teach English. This is where you may want to go grab yourself a beverage and settle in for another adventure in how to make money and travel!
We like Santa Fe, New Mexico but we've been told multiple times that its only a summer destination...we politely disagree.Santa Fe (Spanish for Holy Faith) is the oldest capitol city in the United States and known for its rich history, artistic culture, and of course being the most visited city in New Mexico. Summer may seem like the most enticing time to be in here, especially if you've seen Georgia O’Keeffe paintings, rightfully so as everything is greener, but the town is much busier. We say if you’re in the vicinity, it’s worth a stop any time of the year. Here are five Santa Fe stops we found that are great no matter what the season!
We were only in Marfa Texas for three days and two nights, but this place is extremely unique. Where else in the world can you visit a small town with a population of 1,900 yet feast on 5 star gourmet food, enjoy world famous art installations, and gaze upon one of the nation’s few unexplained phenomenons? We parked our RV out at the famous Marfa Mystery Lights viewing area. They allow overnight parking and we stayed for 2 nights. Not sure if multiple nights are ok, but the town wasn’t busy at all during our stay and no one gave us any hassle. We thought about moving to another spot but there’s no BLM or National Forest land, and the few RV parks weren’t too appealing (and surprisingly expensive for a small town in the middle of nowhere).
