VW Vagabonds

This is so cool....


Nearly three years ago Rich and Amanda Ligato began their overland adventure around the world in a 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia campervan. Their route has taken them from San Diego, California to Amanda´s homeland of Mexico and into Central America. Bypassing the roadless Darien Gap, they shipped the van from Colon, Panama, through the canal to Guayaquil, Ecuador and South America.
The forces of bureaucracy were put to the test once again as they shiped the van from Valparaiso, Chile to Durban, South Africa, beginning a journey through Africa. After more than a year in deepest, darkest Africa the adventure continues. They picked up the van from the port of Newark, New Jersey beginning a trip to the four corners of North America. Having been away from their home country for almost three years they expect massive culture shock. Hop on and join them as the wild ride continues...
