The journey of a lifetime!
As the crow definitely would not fly
A 10-year old geography student could have pointed out that Lovie hadn't chosen the most direct route to Cambodia. Months could have been shaved off the schedule had they not zigzagged around Central Asia. But where's the fun in that? Instead the nomadic crew opted to hit as many countries as possible. The meandering route took them through the best (and sometimes worst) of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Siberia, Mongolia, China and Southeast Asia.
In total, the team crossed 18 countries and more than 25,000km of unpredictable terrain through all kinds of weather – all in a plastic car with a top speed of 80km/h
