In her van, Carmen Gloria Figueroa Sotelo hit the roads this summer. Leaving Montreal where she lives, the young woman traveled for five days through the archipelago of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon in search of a change of environment and a return to herself. And this trip is just one of many.
Carmen has been passionate about independent travel for over twenty years. She also traveled a lot with just her backpack. Southern Patagonia, Chile, Argentina and Iceland are among the countries she was lucky enough to discover.

Over the course of two years, Carmen developed a passion for road trips and decided to invest in a converted van to travel the roads of Canada. She didn’t drive before. “During covid, I learned to drive. So, travel opportunities opened up for me that I didn’t have before.” she confides.
A fan of the unexpected, Carmen immediately decided to drive to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon when she got the chance. “For years I dreamed of going to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, it seemed so unattainable”
Once there, it’s dazzling for adventurers. “Saint-Pierre and Miquelon is a paradise for people who have a motorhome because you can set up almost anywhere with a spectacular view. You can hear the sea and everything, it’s beautiful.”
A trip a Canadian will remember. His next travel project is to send his van to Europe on an expedition next year.
