Expedition Portal is an incredible site. It’s a forum, a blog and a community of people that like to explore and get dirty- usually with trucks. Like I said, usually with trucks, so I’m sure you could understand my surprise when I stumbled across a blog post of theirs that followed a Finnish couple’s journey to Kyrgyzstan in an old 1988 Volvo 240 Estate.
I wish I would’ve found this story first. I really do! It has everything. Volvo’s, road trips, weird food, living in your Volvo- everything! Unfortunately because Expedition Portal got to this one way before I could I have to link you over there. Never worry, though. Before you get to the link, I put together a short preview with pics I “borrowed” from the post. If you want the whole thing, you should head over there. It’s a good one.
