Current Position = Back home in Bavaria!

After 2 amazing years of driving from Canada to the tip of South America, Stefan, Silke & Fender are now back home in Bavaria.

They shipped Fender, the Defender110, back home in early April and it arrived safely into Hamburg where they could pick it up.

Instead of going back to his corporate job, Stefan decided to go solo and has opened up a successful tire shop. Guess he’ll see his share of Land Rovers and other vehicle goodies during his work hours.

We will forever treasure having met Stefan and Silke and having worked on the sturdy Fender. We now have friends for life and when our little girls are older we’re headed to Bavaria for a much overdue visit.

Thanks for looking at all the amazing photos,

Stefan, Silke, Elsa & Francis

Brazil (March 2010)

Stefan and Silke loved Brazil.

Here’s what Silke wrote in the email accompanying all the pictures:

“The Pantanal is one of the best places in the world. We loved the wildlife and stayed a night at a farm house where they offer safari tours by boat, by car, day and night. It was so cool to see an ocelot in the night and a giant ant eater the next day. The old road through the south part was exciting too. A lot of wooden bridges, cayman and piranhas in the water and exotic birds in the trees. Brazil has beautiful green mountains with many waterfalls (look for a yellow Brazil t-shirt). At the coast we were once more not lucky with the weather. Hard rain and Fender with the tent open was parked in a biiiig puddle. At the end we drove “mas o menos” 20 kilometer on the beach and reached Uruguay just before Easter.

Here are the photos from Brazil:
