THE DRIVE BEYOND BORDERS

From 15.5.2022

One of the most important things we can do is to put ourselves in a good place,

because only then can we truly make it better for everyone and everything else around us.

Hi, I'm Warbaby. 

On Sunday morning, 15 May 2022 I started driving from my home in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia towards Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

I started planning for the trip in January 2021, starting with the route, the car, and everything I needed to get sorted before I leave a year later. The initial plan of driving to Europe via China, Mongolia and Russia had to be deferred (to 2023 at the very least!) as China’s land borders are still closed due to the pandemic, and Russia is at war with Ukraine. 


My goal, my intention, is to experience more and differently from before, to share experiences and stories that may be interesting or useful that I encounter along the way, and to leave things slightly better wherever I am. 

My stories are shared on Instagram, YouTube and here on this site. 

Thank you for being here!
