On the road for almost 300 days, the couple of journalists left Bento Gonçalves, in Rio Grande do Sul, in February and in 3 days they were in Uruguay, the first frontier of the trip.

It was also in Uruguay who met the country’s former president, José “Pepe” mujica, on the eighth day of the trip. The unexpected meeting took place at the Escuela Agrária Rincón del Cerro, on the outskirts of Montevideo, where the former president is one of the sponsors of the project and a volunteer.

How to travel South America by car

In addition to helping with transport, the couple's Renault Sandero 1.0 serves as a small house and is fully equipped so that adventurers can sleep and have their meals independently, spending even less on the trip and saving on hotel. As nomadic travelers who adopt this lifestyle say, “the house may be a little small, but the backyard is immense”.

Cramped spaces can be a challenge, but they weren't a barrier to reaching the 300-day trip. Despite not being an appropriate vehicle for great adventures, the car has held up well for the nearly 37,000 km covered. Can you imagine what a car trip across South America? See photos from this trip:
