We are Anna Callau and Pablo Rey, from Spain and Argentina, driving around the world since June 2000 in our Mitsubishi L300/Delica 4x4, a.k.a. La Cucaracha (The Cockroach)
It has been 300.000 kilometres (almost 200.000 miles) driving thru some of the worst roads of the world. We started in Barcelona, Spain, and we travelled the South of Europe, the Middle East and Africa from Cairo to the Cape. We crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a fishing vessel during 23 days and wandered slowly around all the American countries, from the Magellan Strait in Tierra del Fuego to the Arctic Ocean in Deadhorse and Inuvik. We've driven the PanAmerican Hwy., the Dalton, the Dempster, the TransAmazon and the Road 40 in Argentina.
We had 4 bad breakdowns in places you wouldn't like to have any problem: in the Sudanese Sahara (at 270 km. of Khartoum), at Sibiloi National Park in Kenia (next to Lake Turkana, at 800 km. from Nairobi), a frozen engine in the Bolivian Altiplano and another breakdown in the deserted Chilean Andes. We had to fight in Trinidad and Tobago and Brazil, when someone put a knife in my neck, we've been robbed in Athens (Greece) and Addis Abeba (Ethiopia), assaulted with AK47 in Kenia and attacked with stones in Venezuela.
We have lots of stories and travelling tips in our page www.viajeros4x4x4.com. It's mainly in spanish (some of the pages are in english), so if you are not familiar with the language, you can try the funny google translator... it will give you a clue about what we are writing about...
We have three books in spanish (you can find them in Amazon: Historias en Asia y África, El libro de la independencia y Por el mal camino) and we just finished the translation into english of our book AROUND THE WORLD IN 10 YEARS: THE BOOK OF INDEPENDENCE.
See you soon... somewhere on the road!!
