First we got a bit confused by a misinformation about a bordercrossing to El Salvador by a family from Quebec, who read on a blog about some low clearance bridge at our chosen aduana. Luckily we got a feedback from…
There is generally a wide range of bank machines available.  With our banking set-up, we can use any brand for our withdraws.

There’s a first time for everything. This morning was cold. Just about everything was frozen. When I went to start the bus, the gas pedal was as hard as a rock. I’ve never had this happen before. So, what freezes…

It’s an hour until sunset and we are late. We can see the truck ahead of us but the mountain fog is thick enough to mask the three other trucks in front. We’ve been averaging 20km/h for the past hour…

Just outside of Zion on the way to Bryce Canyon is a tunnel. A long tunnel. A long unlit tunnel. A long unlit tunnel where we discovered our headlights didn’t work. Surprise! There was a little bit of panic as…

First Impressions of Bolivia

The first several days in this country have me disoriented.  I feel some familiarity with it, as if we are back in Argentina with a dimension of Paraguay.  So far all the people we have encountered have not made any…

On the Road in Nicaragua

 The highways were funded by the US so we had familiar road lines and good, pothole free roads! Celebration! Cows are in abundance and take over full lanes, especially around 8:00am. Rambo had a coating of manure to prove…

“How y’all doin’ today?” This friendly southern greeting was music to our ears at the end of our first week on the road. Don’t get me wrong- driving through the Atlantic Provinces and North Eastern States was beautiful, with the…

Bolivia: el país de las experiencias

Read the original post and follow Kombi Pal Norte's overland adventures on their website: Kombi pa'l Norte.


Bolivia es un país contradictorio. Por un lado el caos, por otro, la templanza de su gente. Adaptarse y entenderlo no es fácil, nos costó, nos cuesta todavía. Lo bueno es que hablando con otros viajeros nos dimos cuenta que…

We agonized long and hard over which car to get… Do we go with the reliability and practicality of a 4×4 but with zero charm or living space or do we go with the dream. We went with the dream……
