Then, we entered Mexico. Our pre conceptions and thoughts were very different to our experiences. We had been warned as Overlanders to stick to toll roads and don’t drive at night, which we stuck to religiously, until we experienced the community based culture it had to offer. This dramatically changed our thoughts and we had some of the most unique experience’s eating with locals after being invited into their homes and welcomed to their communities.
This warmth continued through both Central and South America where we continued to be accepted in communities across Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. This part of the world was very much new territory for the majority of us and we found ourselves captivated by its temples and Mayan history. After shipping from Honduras we were soon reunited with the cars in Colombia we were ready to complete our last leg of the journey; South America.
Unfortunately due to money running low and time slipping through our fingers the trip came to an abrupt end. After shipping from Uruguay to Germany we were faced with the dreaded issues at customs and legalities of the cars by this point, we had to bring the cars home on trucks to get them fixed up and ready to go. Since then we have been touring Europe sharing our storing at various Adventure shows and we hope to continue sharing.
