We're a group of four individuals: three Kiwis and one Aussie. In July 2016 we are heading across the world to begin the craziest two month road trip of all time.

We are taking part in the Mongol Rally, an incredible journey that begins in the UK and ends in the city of Ulan Ude, Russia. Basically the Mongol Rally is a 16,000km car ride across Europe, The Middle East and Central Asia. 250 - 300 teams participate each year, with a small percentage actually making it to Russia.

There are only three rules:

(1) The car has to be tiny - no bigger than 1000cc

(2) We have to complete the journey on our own (no ringing Mum & Dad when things get tough)

(3) We must raise cash dollar for Charity

For more details on the Mongol Rally follow this link:


Half of the money raised will go towards, Cool Earth, this charity works along side indigenous villages to stop rainforest destruction.

The other half will go towards Live More Awesome. An NZ charity working hard with people suffering from mental illness. They are dedicated to finding ways to help people deal with depression. They began the charity to offer a place to inspire others and help people talk openly about depression.

Any contribution towards our charities will be greatly appreciated, it's not the size of the donation that counts.

We are looking for companies to sponsor us and will happily promote you in every way possible before and during our trip. If you want to donate stickers/gear please contact us via our website or email and we will happily use your logo for advertisement on our vehicle, Facebook, website and various video uploads.

Once again, we are so grateful for any size, shape or form of donation!

Thanks for your kindness!

Ben, Dan, Petra and Sophie
