Roy Flynn and Nicole Denise Schreiter live their dream as they take to the road from Switzerland to Southeast Asia

- +

It has taken Roy Flynn, 36, and Nicole Denise Schreiter, 31,500 days to travel by car from Switzerland to Thailand. Leaving their old lives as a technical businessman and nurse in Switzerland behind without any doubts in March last year, thanks to a sense of wanderlust, the couple has travelled through 23 countries, four world religions, and many plateaus and climates after saving for the trip for seven years. Their route on land has led them to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Siberia, Mongolia, Western China, the Himalayas, India, and finally to Southeast Asia.

Their snug team consists of three, with Gandalf the White (a Toyota Land Cruiser) serving as their protector and trusty steed, but now a fourth member, baby Kevin, has joined the crew. Nicole found out that she was pregnant while in Goa eight months ago and from there, much meticulous planning went in to ensure that she would be able to give birth on Koh Samui. The little island down in the South is surely one of the milestones for the couple as they finally kicked back to recharge and relax a little longer than usual while Nicole gave birth to their first son.
