Hi friends,


welcome to our Blog.

We, Catherine + Mattia, quit our jobs and lease back in 2017 to roadtrip North America in 2018. We bought a motorhome and named him Henry Ford. We were (and in a way always will be) northwestbound. We documented our journey of this trip here, through writing, on Instagram through photos, and sometimes even YouTube through videos. You can find out more about us in our ABOUT section and if you're curious how we got here, our first blog posts will tell you.

Of course a lot has happened since then, we reached our roads end eventually, we returned to Switzerland, got ourselves a couple of jobs, bought a new Europe-friendly van, adopted the best pup, explored a lot of Europe this way, and in between it all, are always scheming our next adventure. Life as we know it, and then of course the global pandemic has got us on hold for now, but we promise, we will be back. After all, this roadtrip might have started out as just that, but if we're honest, it is now part of our lives.

Until then, stay tuned..

and we hope you enjoy our content nonetheless and of course, we love hearing from you.  



"With no certain route or timeline, we head northwest to hopefully one day reach as far as Alaska. The whole idea remaining, to be as present as possible.

To take one day at a time. And to enjoy the journey as much as our destinations."
