Today's vlog begins with a wonderful cup of Chaiwala Chai as we wake up slowly and prepare for a big day of whale watching in Guerrero Negro at the nearby Ojo de Liebre. As two animal and wildlife lovers, today is an absolute dream come true!! We head out to the lagoon with a guide and spend the morning surrounded by the beautiful grey whales and their calves. These whales have recently migrated down from Alaska and come to Baja each year to birth their babies and nest while the young whales grow enough to travel in the open water. All we can say is WOW!! After an eventful morning with the whales, we head to a remote free campsite and spend the night eating vegan tacos and relaxing in our hammock.
We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!

    I'm pretty introverted myself but I can be more or less confident around a certain amount of people. 😊

    For me, that doesn't sound like an introvert.. that just sounds like she wants to relax introvert avoids being an extrovert lol Bec doesn't..she just wants her space sometimes but I wouldn't say that's an introvert..that's just normal for most people x I'm only saying this because I grew up extremely shy and I've grown to be more outgoing ..not overly, but better than I was before.. so from my perspective I just don't see how wanting a moment alone from time to time makes you an introvert when you're overly confident and don't mind company or being the centre of attention (not in a bad way) xx

    Beside the fact, that i dont look like an angel goddess, i‘m pretty much like Bec. I love to smile and make people happy and comfortable but i often need a break from them. Even my family and boyfriend. From them not as long, but i love having the opportunity the be alone every now and then...and for a lot of people this is so weird and hard to understand...that makes me a bit sad...

    I'm introverted but when in the mood I love some socialising. My partner is very introvert and doesn't care for being around peeps. That stops my flow of extrovert sometimes but we respect it. Bec, I love your sensitive soul 😊 Crying at the Whales... I'd be exactly the same.

    Question about whales. I’m curious to hear more about “loving” whales. I’m certainly not anti-whale but I get super excited over bears. They make me get out of the car and scream in happiness. I live in coastal areas like British Columbia and western Washington state. I think Orcas are cute but grey whales? Are they cute to Bec? Is there time to educate me on why she likes them as much as she does? Not judging at all, just extremely curious to learn. I bought your cookbook today. Thank you!!!

  27. Catherine Levison

    Catherine LevisonYear ago

    I was born an introvert and I actually set out to change myself into an extrovert. I’m the one people always talk to in a line. I like people and can listen to anyone but...I have to be alone a percentage of the day. In fact, I can spend several days alone no problem. My buddy is introverted so I’m the more social one by light years. Thank you!

    I’m both I can meet new people but I get sick if people easy, and at the same time I need my own time we’re I will not speak or interact 😂 my bf is supper introverted and likes to stay with who he knows so interacting with new people with him is interested

  31. Dajah A. San Nicolas

    Dajah A. San NicolasYear ago

    I just found you guys so I'm binge watching all your videos lol!!! But I'm an extrovert through and through. Of course there are times when I'm alone, but I love being around people and I'll definitely go out of my way to be with people. My husband is an introvert...through and through lol. It takes time, but with balance and respect it definitely can work. We also have time away from eachother where I can go be with people and be social and he can stay home or at the gym where he is happy and comfortable. A great way to respect eachother's boundaries and allow for individuality.

    My wife and I are similar at times and different at times. We think it has a lot to do with us both being Gemini which is the sign of the twins. So, basically there is 4 of us in this relationship. LOL We are very compatible but the differences keeps things interesting. Love watching you guys!

    Never seen anybody cut their hair while it was in a bun before- that's an interesting technique. Whale watching looked extremely cool you guys. And the introvert extrovert struggle is real. I'm about 50 50 of each so I love being around people and being by myself and I need a balance to keep me sane.

  38. michael Harris

    def need alone/quiet time. people take alot of energy.

  39. Jacy Brazil

    Jacy BrazilYear ago

    I am completely like Bec on this one. I love people and being around them, but I need time by myself to recharge. My boyfriend is the exact opposite and it drives me crazy, but he knows when I need “my time” and either goes and does what he wants or waits on me to recharge. Y’all are great! Love y’all! 💜

  40. TheOwensThree

    TheOwensThreeYear ago

    I would consider myself an extrovert I love being around people to a certain extent I couldn't be at disney world 24/7 but after becoming a mom I seriously love my alone time/quiet time!! 😂😂 I love you guys so much!

  42. Bfoster0519

    Bfoster0519Year ago

    I’m catching up on your vids so excuse the lateness. But I am an ambivert, so I go for periods of time where I’m SUPER extroverted and then I go to the other end of the spectrum and I’m SUPER introverted. My husband, however, is a true introvert always. So sometimes my extroverted self can overwhelm him, but it works when we have to spend time with people during those times. He just gets to sit and be quiet and I can be the more outspoken one.

  44. Reapings

    ReapingsYear ago

    I relate to wanting to always meet new people given any opportunity to, but I also know I only have a handful of hours worth of energy to socialize or be mentally engaged. I consider myself an introvert, a very friendly introvert - only because I know I get my energy from alone time. Cheers guys, stay safe and have fun!

  62. Matthew DenBoer

    Matthew DenBoerYear ago

    FOR THE POLL: I am extroverted like and my wife in introverted... We deal with it like you guys, I ask my wife constantly do do tings and wear her out and she keeps me locked away from society long enough to make me go stir crazy. The problem is we love doing things together but at times she will just ask me to go without her! Most extroverts love introverts over other extroverts... Side note, I am glad Eamon said he easily gets sick of people he meets and pawns them off... I laughed... terrible but funny.

  69. Kelly Carmichael

    Ah, those whales! My husband and I saw whales on a small boat in Alaska, and it was just...uh, there's no words. Amazing! The introvert-extrovert dilemma. It's so interesting, because I was super introverted before I got married, but my husband is an extreme introvert. Over the years, I've found myself being more and more introverted and loving the quiet, alone time. I still really enjoy spending time with people but it needs to be in small amounts. My husband is still really introverted and really likes to be left alone the majority of the time.

  70. Cat Kay

    Cat KayYear ago

    I’m like Bec, we don’t always have to have plans with people all the time, I definitely get very exhausted very fast and need to go away to be alone in order to recharge so I can be good for and to the people around me...if people like us don’t have that time it definitely starts to show and I personally get cranky and snappy

    Sorry I'm soo late here, ..been on holidays myself, though. Thank you guys soo much for sharing your "meet&greet" with the whales. It has been a wonderful experience, even from a distance- Thank you, Thank you, Thank you ! You see, Bec, others can get quite emotional about this, the way, you wanted to know about Intro- or Extrovert. Definately Intro, but just like you, at times I LOVE being around ("the right") people (that is, as long as I can have some "recharge-time" all by myself). See you, guys, lots of love from Germany, Marina

    My boyfriend and I are the same way! He’s a definite extrovert and I’m very much introverted. We’ve been together 4 years now and have worked together to make it balance. Honestly I love that he’s an extrovert because he can speak up and or introduce us to new experiences that I might not have done with an introverted partner or by myself, not to mention the people I wouldn’t have met if he didn’t spark so many conversations. We make compromises by spending time with people and going out but then also enjoying peaceful alone time together or a part. It’s important to speak to your partner when you’re feeling exhausted from all the socializing and feel like you need to recharge, and then listen when they express their need to get out and socialize. Loved the video and the whales ! 💕

    I was honestly avoiding watching this video because I knew Bec would cry and then I would cry. Those whales were amazing. If you guys make it over to central Mexico, my partner and I have been living in Tequisquiapan, Querétaro for the last year. Hit us up if you want a tour!

    Hi Eamon and Bec, I'm from The Netherlands and I watch your vlogs once in a while. I love to watch how you guys live in a van and travel around North and South America ! Funny that part about being extravert or introvert 😂. I'm the extravert, and my wife is introvert. We understand exactly what you both need and mean. I like to meet and get to know new people and my wife loves to have much time for herself. Grab a book and read all afternoon for instance. I think you make a good team, just like us !

    My boyfriend is a major extrovert and often fills in when I’m just not feeling it. But when I am feeling it we can pretty fun together I’m pretty inverted but I need some socialization every once in awhile. I think we work great together since he respects all my moods, if you will

    Go introverts ! I’m the same and I understand you Bec. I need my time. My girlfriend is more of an extrovert but we do separate things. If she wants to see people, she does and I don’t and that’s fine. If I don’t get my alone time ( which I need a lot a lot) I freak out get anxious and burst into tears. It’s good to respect everyone needs. PS : I love how sensitive you are about the whales, you almost made me cry. ;)
