We are Livia and Mattia, a couple from Zurich, Switzerland. In June 2019 we decided to quit our jobs, hand in the keys of our apartment and leave with all our belongings packed in two duffle bags and one goal: The Panamericana.
Starting in Vancouver, our VW Bus Westfalia 1982 named Melvan, since then takes us all over North and Central America. The name was chosen by the previous owner, so we kept it. Why rename a 37-year-old baby, right? For an air-cooled we bought on Craigslist, the VW Bus still runs surprisingly well, especially considering that we have already driven from Alaska to Mexico, I just feel sorry for the people who drive behind us when the road is a little steeper.
