My Story: We Spent 2 Years Planning This Round The World Expedition

An unprecedented journey where my friend Tushar & Myself drove 90,000 km through 50 countries in 6 continents of the world. We spent 2 years planning this round the world expedition. We split our journey into 6 legs for the 6 continents we covered around the world.

Asia

Our epic journey started from India Gate, New Delhi. We crossed the Indian border and drove through Myanmar, a hidden gem in the sub-continent that was till only a few years ago closed to tourists. From Myanmar, we drove through Thailand and Malaysia before concluding our Asia leg in Singapore.

From Ushuaia, we took the Pan American highway and drove all the way up to Mexico crossing Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. The journey took us through the Death Road in Bolivia, rated as the Worlds’ Most Dangerous Road!
