Gaby tells me about her husband, who left his permanent job at the time to go on the one-and-a-half year tour of Asia.
How did it all come about? After a world tour and a long journey through western Africa the following year, the couple decided to explore Asia. “We had dreamed of having a Mercedes-Benz truck for a long time, and I had already bought a Mercedes-Benz L 710 short-hood in an online auction. At first, Christian thought I was joking, but he came with me when I collected it at the Dutch border. I drove it all the way back home, and I felt I was queen of the world.” However, the cab was not high enough for Christian. They needed a truck that suited them both.
