In Mandarina Voladora we are Checho, Raqui and Mana, our ’83 T2 Kombi. Here is a bit about us!
Checho (Sergio) was born in Buenos Aires in 1992. He studied architecture, and he was bitten by the travel bug when he started backpacking through Argentina.
Raqui (Raquel) was born in Lisbon in 1995, and two decades later she started studying theatre. Between family trips, exchange programs, and hitchhiking adventures in Europe, she fell in love with traveling as well.
We both met in a hostel in Wroclaw (Poland) in December 2017. We met as travelers, and we chose to live as travelers. After moving together in Argentina, we decided to buy our kombi (Mana). We turned it into our house with our own hands and a lot of love, and on the 29th February 2020, we headed to the road with no returning date!
An almost impossible day to start a very possible dream.
