Part One

At the beginning of July 2023, we are at the start of our greatest adventure ever. A world trip from Amsterdam to Sydney with your own car. This Challenge consists of a triptych. During part one we drive through the Balkans, Turkey, Iran, the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

We look for the very best that these countries have to offer. At the beginning of August we finish in the capital of Oman, Muscat.

Part two

Three weeks later we are at the start of part two. From Mumbai in India we drive straight through this chaotic country, to Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

During this part we will of course visit various highlights of Asia. The finish of part two of the Amsterdam Sydney Challenge is in Singapore.

part three

Part three is the final piece of the Amsterdam Sydney Challenge. We start in Indonesia and drive through Sumatra and Java towards Bali. Of course we will visit Jakarta and various highlights.

From Bali we take numerous ferries that take us more and more to the east. Finally we arrive in East Timor. From here we sail to Darwin in Australia.

The last week we drive through Northern Australia towards our real finish place. The Opera House in Sydney. We toast to achieving the longest Challenge ever. The icing on the cake is of course the Kiwi Challenge, our adventure in New Zealand.
