    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?

    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 πŸ˜‰

      Hi Lise!

      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.
