Hot News - July 2005   (July 12, 2005)

Website statistics: In June we were able to welcome on our website 20'764 visitors
                                from 103 different countries  who did 410'405 hits
                                (May = 19'154 visitors - 108 countries - 359'316 hits)


Today, the French shipping line CMA-CGM made us a good offer to ship our car in a container
from Cayenne/French Guiana to Singapore. Therefore, our LandCruiser will leave to Southeast Asia
on July 24th and we hope to see it again around September 23rd. Unfortunately we cannot join as
passengers on those vessels - at least not to conditions which are affordable for us. Therefore, we
have not decided yet where we shall spend our time in the meantime, but it looks very much that
Sumatra in Indonesia could be the choice.
The chapter North- and South America seems definitively to come to an end. Totally, we spent nearly
10 years in the Americas (North and South combined) and drove more than 156'000 miles through
40 different countries. Although we visited already Southeast Asia in 1994/95, back then we were
not able to visit all regions because of unrest, respectively uncertainty.


On July 7th, 2005, we were able to celebrate after a journey through 150 countries the car's
600'000th Kilometer - very prosaic before the post office in Cayenne/French Guiana.
Are you interested into the LandCruiser History, prepared by Toyota Motor Sales USA?
(after some loading-time please klick "IN LEGEND" and afterwards "HAIR TO MAGELLAN
- and you will see that we already belong to it too!)
