After thirteen hours on a plane from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires the last thing I want to hear is that we’re about to hit the road within a few hours, especially when our destination is 1200 km away! The plan is to drive towards a Lake in the North West of Argentina called Cuesta Del Viento, notorious for its moon-like landscape and powerful wind that regularly hits 60 mph. So after briefly meeting the film crew, Stefan Csaky and Matthias Zimmermman (Motz) plus Marco, Gonzalo – and his brother Rodrigo – we head out of the huge urban sprawl of the nation’s capital in two loaded vehicles headed west. I must admit I felt a little out of my comfort zone on that first day on the road. I was in a strange country, passing through all sorts of guarded borders without really knowing any of the people I was travelling with, where we were going to sleep or what would happen if something unexpected went wrong. The landscape was one long two-lane road passing through mile after mile of flat farmland, with little excitement to pass the day aside from our overtaking manoeuvres past some big trucks. After twelve hours of straight driving, pretty much dissecting the top of Argentina – and still 300 km short of our target – we finally stopped at a hotel too tired to go any further. As I flopped into bed, I was already starting to wonder what I had let myself in for. Looking at the map, this huge drive was only one tiny part of the country and I knew our ultimate goal was to end up in the very south. It was already too late to turn back. I was committed and, like it or not, this was going to be one mother of a road trip!
