Preparing For The Pan-American

In April 2022 we arrived in Canada and our Pan American Adventure officially started!!

Except it hadn’t… Although we have made it to Halifax, our van was still on its way from Europe to North America, so we couldn’t yet set off to explore the Canadian wilderness.

At the Toronto airport, it wasn’t easy to explain to the passport control officer what we were doing (without a return ticket, chances are you’ll be questioned about your plans), but eventually, we were allowed to enter this fantastic country.

We were going to pick up our truck from the port around the 25th of April. We could not have been more excited! 😎

Please watch the latest episode of our Vlog series where I explain the last parts of the preparations as well as the process of taking the truck to the Port of Hamburg for shipping.
