We are the Verdugo family; Marco, Tracy, Santana & Sienna. between us we paint, sing, sketch, make music, photograph, write & film. We are on a seven month creative journey which will take us from Southern California up the coast to Oregon, on to British Columbia and then South again all the way to Oaxaca in Mexico. Marco and Tracy form two thirds of the band The Long Goodbyes www.myspace.com/theloooooooonggoodbyes and will be gigging along the way. Tracy is a successful artist and will be collecting ideas along the way for her next exhibition back home in Australia. The girls will be homeschooled along the way, attend Spanish language school in Mexico for two months and also help to create a documentary about their trip. Tracy hopes to publish a book about their adventures and the ups and downs of living a life less ordinary.
The Verdugos are also long time supporters of The School of Hope (El Colegio de esperanza) www.americasfoundation.net in Tijuana, mexico and will be raising funds and awareness about the school throughout their trip.
Stay tuned for weekly updates on our adventures!
