If you read the comments, you may have noticed that we were contacted by some travelers a few weeks back about stopping in for a visit. Meet Vincent and Sidonie.
The crazy thing is that we’ve actually met their bus before – albeit with a different owner – way back in Colombia. Since then, the bus made it up to Montreal where it sat parked for 6 months. Then, these guys flew over from France to pick it up and drive it to Alaska. Now, they’re on their way to Argentina. It’s an Argentinean-made bus, so it just wants to go home, I guess.
Anyway, we know the deal. Karmic debt. We have a cozy casita with running water, actual beds, warm showers, a washing machine and a real kitchen. It makes all the difference in the world after living on the road for extended periods. They didn’t even mind the house scorpions. “We have those in France too.”
Anyway, really cool folks with a great travel attitude. They’ll go far.
We gave them the BodesWell Tour Agency special and showed them around. They got to release some baby turtles. We got French cooking. Win-win.
Of course, some bus work was mandatory. In all of Southern Baja, there’s really only one place to go: Geraldo VW in La Paz. Geraldo has a full shop, just about any part you would need and even speaks some English. VIP parking included.
