Lothar Schaefer and Debbie Wellwood

Lothar Schaefer, right, and his wife, Debbie Wellwood, stopped in Kingsville on Monday as part of their months-long journey from Canada to South America. 

A local church in Kingsville recently played host to a pair of travelers who have been on a nine-month cycling journey that has wound from the couple’s home in Canada on their way to South America.

Lothar Schaefer and his wife, Debbie Wellwood, made a stop in Kingsville on their way to the U.S.-Mexico border. The couple – who hail from British Columbia, Canada – started their journey on June 8, 2015. Schaefer said the couple travels a lot together, completing a three-month kayaking tour in 2007 that stretched along the west coast of Canada and ended in in the southern portion of Alaska.
