In August 2014, inspired by a well travelled friend, I posted a question about overland travel on Toyota Hilux forum in South Africa. This was a milestone in preparations for a two year trip that took me to Johannesburg where I bought my first ever car through Africa to Egypt and then through Southern Asia, all the way to Singapore.

The whole trip lasted 580 days, I stayed in roughly 250 different locations, across 36 countries. I drove just under 80000km and burned over 8000 liters of petrol. I drove from Lac Assal in Djibouti at 150m below sea level to 5360m above sea level at Kardung La pass in Ladakh in India.
