The adventure starts in Rotterdam. From Rotterdam, the car will travel across the Atlantic Ocean in a container to Montreal, Canada. From Montreal, the plan is as follows:
Canada – from Montreal to Banff/Jasper, then Vancouver
USA – North to South along the Pacific coast and the Rocky Mountains
Central America: Mexico, maybe Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama
South America: (Colombia), Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, maybe with a cruise to Antarctica
Australia – western part
Russia from Vladivostok to Europe
We are home! On 12 October 2013 we returned to Bergamo, Italy, after making a full trip around the world. Our route is on the map below including the mountains we climbed.
This is our route country by country:
Italy – Switzerland – Liechtenstein – Austria – Germany – Denmark – Germany – Holland – Canada – USA – Mexico – Belize – Guatemala – El Salvador – Honduras – Nicaragua – Costa Rica – Panama – Colombia – Ecuador – Peru – Chile – Argentina – Chile – Japan – Russia – Georgia – Turkey – Greece – Italy

Knok the door when in Buenos Aires for a warm shower and a good “asado”. Looking forward to seeing you at home! All the best.

I note from your planned route that you are bypassing most of the East Coast of Australia, in particular I would have thought you would have wanted to visit Queensland? Great Barrier Reef and so on! You can visit us in Brisbane, stay with us if you like?

Thank you for your kind offer! Our route planning for that end of the trip is still very rough so who knows, maybe we will get a chance to visit you 🙂

I will be watching your progress, but do drop me a line when you get close. Unfortunately no mountains here, but well worth a visit.

I noticed that you bypassed Australia and are in Western Russia. So where next?

Hi Imran! Yes, we spent too much time in South America so had to skip Australia….next time! In about a week we will cross into Georgia and then go home to Italy through Turkey and Greece. A lot of good food and wine on the way 😉

With who do you have take the ship from Rotterdam to Montreal? Wich carrier? How much did it cost?
Thanks a lot

We used the shipping company SCL in Rotterdam. They specialize in shipping cars. In total the car was 11 days underways. We had to deliver her two days before in Rotterdam. In Montreal we used an agent recommended by SCL to get the car out of customs.
It cost 1200 EUR for the shipment and an extra 800 EUR if you choose to make an insurance.
