The Makinola: tour the continent above a Falcon
Sometimes, when you really want to do something, the lack of resources is compensated by creativity. If not, let’s see the story of this couple. Juan and Marina are two Argentines who had a dream, and today they are fulfilling it: they are touring the continent above theMakinola , a 1981Ford Falcon .
It all started when Juan bought the car and wanted to try it on a trip to the Hot Springs for a car encounter. At first, the intention was to return, but something made him venture to continue. He started driving north. Marina had stayed working in Buenos Aires, but from afar she could also feel the adventurous impulse. Six months after Juan began his journey, she joined him in Panama. The Makinola has been travelling for almost two years. He left Mar del Plata (Buenos Aires) and arrived at United States.
How do you finance this trip?
Once the car began to be made famous, began to generate marketing products to sell and go solving the route by taking advantage of the contacts generated through Instagram.
What is the route of the Makinola?
They themselves tell it on their Facebookpage:
We are Juan and Marina, two Argentines who are traveling the world with a 1981 Ford Falcon, called “La Makinola”.
Our dream is to travel around the world and know the different cultures, customs, share with people beautiful moments and above all show the world that dreams are to be fulfilled.
The first part of the trip was Mar del Plata (Argentina) -Las Vegas (USA). U.U.). Travel time: 1 year and 1 month
Second tour: Los Angeles (USA) USA) to Miami (USA) US): 15 days
Third tour: Monterrey (Mexico) -Detroit (USA) U.U.). We arrived at the Ford plant
Fourth tour: Detroit-New York (USA). U.U.)
Total travel time: 1 year and 10 months
It all began in Narzo 2017 when we went to see the town of Tigre, which we would later baptize our beloved MAKINOLA.
There he was waiting for us, not knowing the thousands of kilometers, the temperatures and the millions of places he would meet. For John it was love at first sight and of course it was dreaming big and in something wonderful.
