Walter Marroquin

Walter Marroquin

Walter came into our lives in Panama. After a couple of beers we already knew we would travel together until the end of the trip.

He was riding down from Canada, on his loved Triumph Scrambler.

We decided to ride until the end of the world together, to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego.

Walter was the most positive person we’ve ever met.

He would never get crossed, never get stressed. Everything would be good enough for him. He would make the most of each situation.
He was the incarnation of kindness. A great spirit for adventure, and so much enthusiasm for life.

You couldn’t help loving him. He had such a smile, an amazing sense of humour, a big heart. Walter was an angel, an example in life.

In such a short period of time, he became a dear dear friend. A brother.
One of those friendships that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

But his path took a different turn on the way from Copacabana to La Paz.

Walter left us…but be never gave up.

He kept his sense of humour and incredible spirit up to the end.

Right now it’s just pain. But Walter, we are so glad our path crossed.

You changed our life for ever.

We miss you terribly. But we know you are in peace.
We will ride together forever. Nuestro hermano.

Massimo & Sophie

Pérou: on est bien mieux dans les montagnes!

Ah le Pérou, avec ses vues incroyables, sa Cordillère des Andes, ses flutes qui chantent au loin, l’osmose parfait avec la nature… Alors euh pas du tout… ☺ Je suis désolée par avance de casser le mythe mais il faut être honnête des fois. Tout n’est pas toujours tout rose et tout beau...
