AROUND THE WORLD IN 10 YEARS, TONIGHT AT 7 PM @ ISSAQUAH, SEATTLE!

'Join us October 15th at 7 pm for a special evening with Pablo and Anna. These two have been traveling overland for 15 years in their trusty 1991 Mitsubishi L300 Delica, known affectionately as La Cucaracha.

What started as a four year journey has taken them to four continents, over three hundred and fifty thousand kilometers, three books, a drive through a wedding chapel, and many other adventures. This presentation is free but donations to Pablo and Anna are encouraged to keep them on the road.

They will also bring copies of Pablo's book "Around The World In 10 Years: The Book of Independence" to sell after the presentation. This will be held in the new store of Das Mule at 60 NW Gilman Blvd, Issaquah, WA, and should last about an hour.

HOW WE PREPARED OUR 4WD FOR A 15-YEAR TRIP AROUND THE WORLD

Do you want to know how we prepared our 4WD to overland the world during 15 years? Read this story written by Chris Collard for the Spring Issue of Overland Journal!

'Their original 1-year plan to experience Africa on an intimate level while taking as many turns as possible morphed into two and a half years, and then expanded to include South America. Two more years passed, then another three, and they were still embracing their nomadic existence. They eventually realized that life on the road wasn't simply an extended vacation or escape from reality – it was reality.'

AND NOW, TRAVELLING WITH MOTORBIKES IN SOUTH EAST ASIA!

After almost 16 years overlanding the world non-stop in a 4WD van called La Cucaracha, we jumped to South East Asia and bought a couple of old motorbikes in Vietnam! This is a-ma-zing! I wish I had started to drive motorcycles before.

Follow us during the next two months while we travel from the mountainous border with China to the heat of the south (also through Laos and Cambodia) at Pablo Rey Anna Callau - La Vuelta al Mundo en 10 Años

Buenas rutas!

I love to go to the mechanic in Vietnam. It never costs more than a few bucks!

Running away of a 'controlled' forest fire in Laos. No one closed the road, and we found ourselves surrounded by flames and dark smoke. The late was the worst, as our irritated eyes were fighting to stay closed while driving, and we barely could see anything in front of us, not even the potholes. We crossed that kilometre on fire just on time, or maybe a little too late, as the people we find in front of us, all locals, were turning around. Creepy....





We don't need to look for adventure, adventure is looking for us.

'Don't worry, when we finish to fill the gas tank of the truck, we will fill yours'. First time I see this...
I love countries like Laos, they're always full of surprises!

The most spectacular place of the last 3 month journey through Southeast Asia? Kong Lor Cave: 7.5 underground navigable kilometers in a motorized canoe. Huge. Awesome. Just charted in 1995. There are still many places to discover!

Today we crossed again the border to Vietnam. It was easier than the last time, when we entered Laos and had to pay a revolutionary ticket of 9 dollars each to take out the bikes from Vietnam. That tax doesn't exist, and you realise you've been cheated when they say 'thank you' and you leave with empty hands. Not even a weird paper written in an impossible language...

But the important thing here is the motorcycle etiquette. The air pollution is so bad that we have to ride in a homemade version of Bonnie and Clyde!

After lunch, there is nothing better than a good nap. They know it even in Vietnam! Of all the countries we've visited during the last 3 months in South East Asia, Vietnam is the best!

Our best wishes to the police checkpoint in the Lions statue, Sihanoukville, Cambodia. They stopped us with the excuse that our motorbikes were from Vietnam and we cannot drive them in Cambodia. Theconversation was quite tense, but we kept our word. No, we are legal. We never accepted their offer to sit down, nor even parked the bikes where they said, out of sight.
As they saw we weren't afraid, one of them asked me to empty my pockets. 'Are you looking for drugs?' I asked with a broad smile.
Two minutes later, they were prompting us to leave. They were loosing time with us, we haven't bribe any police in 16 years around the world, we are not going to start now!
So, corrupt policemen in Sihanoukville, this is for you
