Around World in Toyota

Nicolas Rapp a man born in France is going to drive a Toyota Land Cruiser around the world. My mother handed me a newspaper article about him to read that showed up in an Indiana Newspaper. (I am guessing a press release.)

Is he French or American, I am not sure, but he has a cigarette in his mouth, I am betting French is the dominate culture attitude. There is an overland trip idea to sleep on top of the SUV; I think he is erecting a tent in this photo.

This is a photo I took in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia showing a look a like vehicle, I believe the search words you need to key in is “Overland” with if you want to learn about this genre of travel. These people had a website, and I wrote while I was in Ethiopia.

I was happy to see this map, an ironically I have been working with a Brit guy by the name of Ian to travel by car. I have marked on the map with black arrows my, or our proposed trip. I am thinking maybe of doing this in early March, the reason I got the International Drivers License the other day.

This is the TYPE car Ian and me are thinking about buying. The tentative plan is this, pay about 500-800 U.S. Dollars for this car, tint the windows, hope we can find one with AirCon and take off. I have been to Africa about five times and Ian has been an intermittent traveler for years. We both have many countries under our belt and would like to “Take the Piss.”
(British Slang for Winding up or making fun of people.)

Well, it is like this, we believe Travelers of this small planet exaggerate, so we can wind up the world, take the piss, and have some fun. And truly, I believe this is what you really want to know, do I truly need to spend 20,000 Dollars for a car, or can I do what make great sense, buy one and abandon it at the end of the trip, becoming car litter bugs.

Read about he is truly a good at getting press releases published, I often think the most important skill of wanna be travel writers is self promotion skills, in a way actual travel is irrelevant.

I guess Nick is asking for Donations, has a few sponsors, please somebody throw money at me and make me do this.
