Lesson 16: Taking That Epic Road Trip: From Tokyo to Capetown with Chuck Berry and Phil Woodland

In this episode we tackle taking a road trip around the world. Sounds crazy right? Well, it’s easier than you might imagine. Growing up, Chuck Berry had a dream of driving an ice cream truck around the world. Unlike many of us who grow out of those dreams, this one wouldn’t die. While he realized an ice cream truck might not be as realistic as, say a Toyota Hilux, he still wanted to plan an epic road trip around the world.

It was a fateful meeting in Tokyo when he connected with Phil Woodland who also shared a similar passion for taking a road trip around the world. Tune to to hear tales of an epic six months on the road, how they got from Tokyo to Capetown and all the twists and turns along the way!

Covered in this episode:

  • What lead to Chuck and Phil to decide they’d go on a road trip of this epic nature
  • What you need to know to get cars across oceans AND how to handle car insurance while crossing boarders
  • Chuck and Phil’s favorite places from their trip
  • Why it’s not as difficult as you think to take a long road trip…if you really want to
  • How Couchsurfing is great and why you should give it a try
