Our home is finally complete again!! Lee arrived on Tuesday and Occy & I could not be more stoked to have her back in the van!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We did our best to capture the reunion (especially Occy’s reaction to Lee’s return) and after an epic battle with Costa Rican wifi we have finally got the video uploaded. Link in bio 🎥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our plan is to now take a couple of days off to soak in each other’s company. Let us know what you think and be sure to comment letting Lee know she should never leave again!

Guys! After lots of encouragement we have decided to jump in with two feet (finally) and created a youtube channel to share our travels with you and give you further insight in to what it's like to live in a van!
Check out our introduction video & subscribe if you want to join in our adventure!!

😍😍😍👋🏻👋🏻 HHIIIIIII PIETJE!!! Welcome to South America! *cue huge grin 😁
SO happy to finally have Pietje back, after 2 full days at the port of waiting, random paperwork, and more waiting (poor Mark left the hotel at 7.30 and returned at 17.30 this Monday and Tuesday...😑), and then another three hours yesterday...but at 11 we finally left the port, and quickly thereafter the city BYYYYEEEEE WON'T MISS YOU 😅We did it! Definitely the biggest logistic challenge of this whole trip. Plus, we weren't even sure if we'd be able to do it, financially...since we spent way too much time in Central America 🤷🏻♀️ Super grateful for the work opportunities the past couple of months, and for the possibility to continue our trip further south. We just really need to go a bit faster now 🤣
Ps. No Wapi/Pietje baby car. They hit it off, but decided they wanted to see a bit more of the world first 😉🚐❤️🚙
- Have you ever slept at high altitude? It's crazy what the thin air does to your body. The first night above maybe 3000m i couldn't sleep more than three hours and i still felt wide awake. After a few nights it got really exausting though and i could fall asleep every other minute - even if just for a moment.
It took me a while to get used to the thin air and the constant ups and downs driving through the Andes. Especially hiking was a challenge 😅
This view was at the amazing Laguna Parón in Peru. 4200m above sea level... Probably the most beautiful view i've ever had while waking up!🤩💚
Have you ever bern at such high altitude? And how did you feel it?
😱😭😭 bye bye Pietje, don't be scared!!!
Last Tuesday we loaded Pietje and Wapi (the van of our shipping partners) into a container to get shipped to Colombia. There might be a Wapi/Pietje baby car when we open the doors again next week! 🚙🍼👶🏻
Took Eddy to a birding park 😹 --- We also (attempted) to sleep there in the parking lot the night prior...didn't go so well. Around midnight 2 cars drove up and stopped behind the van, then drove away down a "authorized access only" entrance road...park rangers...30 min later a few cop cars pull up and I have to get up with a flashlight shining through the windshield to explain the situation. It was raining, late, and they seemed into the van...so they let us stay. Moral of the story, don't trust everything you read on #iOverlander 😉
