About SEVENTEEN by SIX

We are driving from Mexico to Argentina in our VW Eurovan, which we bought in the US in 2011. We are both journalists from the UK – we’ve been working a little on the road, and we have no plans for what will happen at the end of this trip, in 2014. We’ve been broken, stranded, stuck and lost, and so far had the time of our lives.

Trip Start: Trip End: 2014-12-31 .
