We’re so pumped about our conversation with Omar Bendezu. Omar is an Entrepreneur and is also a content partner. Content partners help Voyage in so many ways from spreading the word about the work that we do, sponsoring our mission and collaborating with us on content like this. Check out our conversation with Omar and his team below.
Thank you so much for sitting down with us again. For folks who might have missed our initial interview, can you start by briefly introducing yourself?
“¿A dónde van?” is Spanish for, “Where are you going?” For brevity, it often gets shortened to a phrase that sounds like a single word – ondevan.
This question of “where are you going?” has become a familiar one for Omar and I. We both are avid travelers who have a taste for getting off of the beaten path. Friends, family members, and coworkers are hardly surprised when we let them know of our latest plans to pack up and explore somewhere new. One of the other questions we often get is, “How did you guys meet?” Omar is from the coastal region of Peru and I’m from the Midwest.
Omar, being the competitive entrepreneur and the more practical half of our team thought, “How can we make back the money we invest in this? Can this be something more than just a hobby?” We were sure that we weren’t the only ones who wanted to explore Florida in a more adventurous and bohemian manner.
And we were right. When we started telling people about our idea their faces lit up. We quickly found helping hands that wanted to make the campervan a reality. They helped us convert the interior, paint the outside, even figure out the less exciting bits like the best way to insure the vehicle. Because of all of the enthusiasm around the project, it materialized very quickly. Within a month the van was ready to hit the road.
