We're 2 (Froggies ! :) ) students in an engineer school in Toulouse (France), we love travels, trips, expreriences, that would be too easy if we were realizing it with a huge 4x4, a permanent support, and nights in hotels !
We do want to drive a little car with a small engine, pass through mountains and destroyed roads, stop at the middle of deserts to change a part of the transmission, sleep on the roof of the car, meet the local population, and offer almost the half of the money you'll give to humanitarian associations.
This summer 2016, we'll head to london the 8 july, and will to come back before september ! (you know, the stard of academic year ? :) )
The plan ? We start in London, we finish in Paris ! Isn't there a problem ? Oh, the mid-way point : Vladivostok (Russia) !!
We'll get through Eurasia, crossing Czech, Turquie, Iran, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia. Our return will depend on the condition of our sweet car !
We'll share an important part of our road with the teams of the Mongol Rally, a kind of race which runs from 16july to 20 august. Our (Your) donations will be given to the organisation of that rally, in order to be ensured of the well and fair redistribution of the money to humanitarian local associations. The rally doesn't bring any support, they just collect the money (1000GBP per team).
Seriously, one year before our entrance in the professionnal world, we therefore believe that we need to open our eyes and minds on the world around us, the different cultures that we won't see in France, in order to understand its and to know how to adapt. Then, what's better than travelling withour our usual confort, following our instincts, our sociability, and our taste for adventure ?
Happiness is one of the things that grows if you share it, help us to make our grow, we really want to share that happiness with all the people we will meet and help with (y)our money !
