About us

 Welcome to our travel blog

We are Jose and Cristina, in 2016 we decided to change our lives, we bought Cactus, our campervan, we restored it and now we are travelling through South-America! Since April 2017 our family grew up, we adopted a street dog called Perito!

Our motivation:

After living 6 years in Germany we realise that we were too confortable… The adventure of living abroad has become a normal life, and we don’t like to stay in our comfort zone… we don’t like monotony, we want more!

We need a change to take new perspective, we want to learn more about the life, the nature, the cultures, the people… Some lessons that you learn neither at school nor at your work…

That’s why we bought a AWD (4×4) camper van, we took a sabatical year and in January 2017 we start a new adventure through Sudamerica. We know where we will start but no where we are gonna end…

You can check where we have been and what we have donde in our blog Travelling with Cactus.

Our dream is to complete the Panamerica highway from Buenos Aires to Alaska.

We start the blog in May 2016 because we want to show you also how we are gonna restore the camper which is 30 years old (like us, maybe a premonition). Could be that this is also interesting for someone or is gonna inspire some of you to make a similar crazy things.

You can check that in our page Restoring Cactus.

We wait for your feedback, recomendations, tips, whatever…

If you wanna see how all that is gonna end, follow us! 🙂
