We are Ken Southam and Sarah Allen from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We will be on an adventure in South America from January 1, 2018 to May 5, 2018 driving our 25 year young 1992 Volkswagen Westfalia Hightop Camper from San Antonio Chile to Tierra del Fuego Argentina and then north again up the west side of South America to Cartagena Colombia via Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Columbia.
We researched the highlights of South America and established a preliminary road plan that is really quite flexible since we are self contained we can travel at a relaxed pace and change the plan as we discover new points of interest along the way. We have planed a 4 month trip with a pace that allows us to spend multiple days at a number of stops during our journey. We just need to average 150 km per day to arrive in Columbia in early May in time for our flights back to Vancouver. Our plan has a start and and end point but everything in between is the adventure.
