I met the most famous kombi in America and its owners when they arrived to my city!
Never Ending Journey is the name of the project two argentinians started back in 2013. The goal was to travel from Argentina to Alaska in the yellow kombi named Aurora.
I had the honor to meet them in the independence day of my country!
They’d just arrived and were resting in a hostel close to Galerías Mall. It was a little of a mess to get there because the avenue in front of Galerías is one of the main avenues where parades happen on the Independence day and all of the public transportation who, normally, goes to Galerías decides to skip those bus stops that day.
But when we met, I gave them a big hug and we went for coffee. I mean, I didn’t know them until that very day, but it was just a happy meeting with people who are true with themselves and left everything but their kombi to start a never ending journey so my traveling heart needed to connect with them.
We had a little conversation about blogs and social media and I’m really happy to know they ended up opening their instagram account!
I’m really happy they made it to Alaska! But I’m more than happy that they traveled +1000 days to get it! 4 years is a lot and a lot of memories and pictures must be in their memories (organic and digital).
Now, they will take it slow and spend their fall in Canada and their winter in California. And it’s more than deserved, Aurorita made a great job by moving them from the South Pole to the North Pole, she deserves a vacation of her own!
