Have you ever asked yourself "What is true freedom?" I imagine that we would all have a different answer for that question. For Sara, Dean and their dog Lupe they traded the city for a life on the road. Their days are now spent surfing, fishing and exploring their way through the Americas. They have definitely made me rethink what is important in life!
"There are a lot of people doing this trip, and by this trip, I am referring to driving the Pan American Highway, overlanding the Americas, rambling the big A, and however else people are referring to it these days. When we decided to plan our adventure, we thought it was a novel idea. Perhaps, even a little shocking. And to the people where we reside––it is. It’s crazy. Why the hell would you want to do that? You mean, you are going to DRIVE through Mexico. You are going to die."
"After camping on the beach for a week in Mompiche, we spent the second week working as volunteers at a hostel. As volunteers, we painted some signage, built furniture, created a promotional video, and did some gardening for a few hours a day, in exchange for one of the private cabins (The Mud House)."
Sara, Dean and Lupe have navigated through the Americas, the hustle and bustle of life, and their relationship with each other. What they have learned is that its better to wake up on a beach somewhere in South America than in an apartment in Jersey. Thanks guys for the inspiration.
