Pasos de Migrantes


We are a Venezuelan Italian couple, with a Chilean pet or son (Selene, Humberto and Tobby) after so much time searching our volkswagen found us, and we love her like never before, much more faithful to us as we would have imagined, after a year living in La Paz – Bolivia we bought our ideal VW Bus to undertake our trip, without wanting to return to our countries for the moment, and with a vision of living traveling for a good time, so far we have been on the routes for 2 and a half years. We named her “Frontera”, a 2001 VW Bus manufactured in Brazil, with a young heart.


We started with a migration project, visiting migrant houses, looking for options to be able to support them voluntarily in some way, along the way we became migrants, where we have to adapt to each country and its way of living and its cost of living. Continuing the trip, we work and make exchanges to participate in different activities, both cultural and recreation, we realized that the interaction with different people, their ways of thinking catch you in each visited place, and that encourages us to continue much more, inspired to meet someone different, to listen to the different ways of thinking, and to know that we are all ones, and that the differences between borders we are joining as travelers, it is already a way of life, it is already a way of understanding life daily , taking off our thoughts from rumors and prejudices.

Pasos de Migrantes


What does the BusLife mean to you?

BusLife is a way of life, it is a way of opening doors, it is a world that everyone should live at some time, long or short trips, it is an encounter with other personal parameters, live and learn new experiences.

What are the biggest advantages and challenges of living the BusLife?

Among the daily challenges we have is to generate a way to follow the routes, refuel, and that leads us to work on the trip, we do not have a sponsor or an extra credit to continue the trip, nor are we used to living the day , we are what we want to make sure in each step we take through our work and exchanges, deciding to take new routes also seems to be a challenge, stop visiting some to be able to do others, something a bit extreme in some cases, since we avoid the cities and that leads us to go out on little-traveled routes, but that are very worthwhile to leave the commercial and tourist, leave new friendships, with a difficult “see you soon” or “until the next route” hopeful that we will cross some again, on some route.

Tell us your favourite destination you have travelled to so far?

All have been very good destinations, until now Uruguay in general has been a place where you are captivated, where you want to continue more and more, and where we have lasted longer, Paraguay and its people leave you wanting to continue knowing, but sometimes the weather does not favor us when traveling with a doggy and hairy son.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

Let him talk to us, our kombi never left us anywhere, taking her on land where only 4×4 cars passed us by, nothing happened to her, always attending to her demands, her heart as strong as her shell, I think when she speaks to you everything is going well.
