Welcome to our site. Here you can read about our travels. We are Marcia and Kilian from the Netherlands. We’ve been on the road full time since August 2020. We travel in a small camper van, a Mitsubishi L300, 4×4. We first travelled through Europe and a small part of Asia and since January 2022 we are in Latin America. For years our sweet cat Binkie travelled with us, that’s why we’re called gato goes global, gato is Spanish for cat. Sadly Binkie passed away suddenly on the 21st of October 2023, at the age of only 7, in Santiago de Chile. It broke our hearts and we miss him very much, but are traveling on and hope he is still with us in spirit.

At the 19th of February 2024 we were getting some water in Las Lajas, a small town in Argentina. I spotted a kitten sitting on the road, not moving even though we were driving towards it. I got out and the kitten was literally starving to death, was clearly sick, had an abscess and a perforated left eye. We took the kitten with us. Miraculously the little guy survived, although many months of (specialist) medical treatment were necessary. We named him Finnley and he is now our new traveling companion.
