Catching Up With The Ultimate Road Trip . . . Around The World

Friday, May 14, 2010

A few months back, you may remember a post about two friends leaving their jobs and comforts of home life to hop on a Land Cruiser and drive around the world. At the time of that post, it was March, they had just checked off Central America, and were heading south towards Buenos Aires.

I popped back onto their blog yesterday to check out the progress. They have successfully made it through South America, with an apparent extended stay in B.A. (who can blame them?). Then, back to the master plan, shipped their ’96 Land Cruiser over to South Africa to take on the wilds of both the cities of Johannesburg and Durban, as well as the actual wilds of Kruger National Park.

Their most recent post is makes me want to fill up the gas tank and head to South Africa (something doesn’t sound right about that). It is filled with some amazing shots from their “safari” thorough the park (seen above), the adventures of finding a camp each night, and the history and observations of their current location — Mozambique.

One problem that snuck up on the pair: not enough room in their passports. I can’t say I’ve ever had that issue yet . . . must be nice.
