We are Matt and Sarah Smith recently of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  We are traveling through the Americas in our custom Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro Westfalia named Koru with well over a year on the road now.This is the adventure of a lifetime for us.  We’ve given up our jobs and most of our belongings and packed what we deem necessary to live minimally day to day into our compact van.Koru is our beloved chariot and home while on this exciting adventure.  So let’s go and have a look at America the beautiful!

  • Coyhaique to Villa O’Higgins via the Carretera Austral - After the beginning stretch of beautiful mountains surrounded in fjords and rivers on the Carretera Austral, we were excited to share the beauty with Matt’s parents for their 4th visit on our journey (incredible!). They were becoming experts at Latin American travel, and we couldn’t be happier to share time with them again, this time in Coyhaique, Chile.

Come with us!
