  We made the descent down into the green mountains that surround Lake Atitlán. The windy roads made everyone sway in the chicken bus back and forth. We passed the very first town that we gave school supplies to with Mayan Families, San Jorge, and I instantly got butterflies. Waves of memories rushed over me […]

  In life it is always important to take a moment to reflect on why you do what you do. What do we do at Life Out of the Box? We travel. We travel to explore the unknown. We travel to take a risk. We believe that taking the risk is always worth it. We […]

We moved to Central America to pursue our dreams & start Life Out of the Box. Just over a year later, we’ve expanded into two countries Guatemala & Nicaragua, have given thousands of children school supplies and have had lots of fun & adventure along the way.

Baba is an expatriate from France who has successfully opened his own hotel in San Juan Del […]

This is an amazing and inspiring video of scenes outdoors all around the world. The narrator of the poem explains that she tried to live a life of playing it safe, but her heart kept telling her that she was craving for something more. She finds that her body, soul and everything inside of her […]

When we landed in SFO, the butterflies were fluttering. It was a combination of nervousness, excitement and surprisingly culture shock. We were back in the States, back home, and it felt like a new foreign place like Nicaragua did 8 months ago. What were we going to do first? Surprise the family! Since JB’s family […]
