From Sea to Shining Sea

Yesterday we crossed the Peruvian border at Huaquillas. After leaving the Atlantic in Colombia, we finally reached the Pacific today. So far we made more than 81,000 miles (130,000 kilometers) driving Herbie on five continents since September 2009. We’re staying tonight in Trujillo. Tomorrow we’ll head towards Peru’s capital, Lima.

  1. Hi:

    I’m part of a Vw enthusiast group on Arequipa, are you coming to Arequipa? It’ll be nice if you get here; there are lots of places I’m sure you’ll like; besides (and that’s something you can ask 😉 ) the best food in Peru, is Arequipenian food (:

  2. In Brazil we have some cars that use “completely VW air”. It’s named “Gurgel” (Gurgel Cars). There is an interesting Gurgel X12, something about a jeep and a fusca… See on Google.

    I think you will like it.
