First we thought we could go around the world in four years. Then we were convinced that we could do it in seven. When we got to the sixth year of travel, we felt that 10 was a good round number, enough to see and to understand the world. In June 2015 we celebrate 15 years living on the road, and there's still more than half the planet left to explore! q...I'll never forget that Monday when I put the barrel of a gun to my head and fired until I was out of bullets, without stopping to think of what I was doing so I wouldn't have a chance to change my mind. It was my resignation to a future which I already knew, a farewell to a secure job, an adieu to a brilliant career in advertising, the microcosm where I had lived for the last twelve long years. It was ten minutes after ten in the morning and my last words were, more or less 'keep the corpse, I'm leaving.' My body collapsed and I walked out the door...q The Book of Independence is the story of a dream, of how one day two normal people decided to declare their independence and give up that double life that makes us do on the weekends what we would like to do Monday through Friday. It is also the story of Babel's back country, a journey through some of the world's worst roads with a 4A—4 truck transformed into a house on wheels. There is no bathroom, no shower, no sponsors, no hotels, no phone and no Auto Club. qThe road will provideq is a statement of optimistic intent. Well, optimistic optimism. qThe Book of Independence works its magic like a bellows on the embers of wanderlust, inspiring us to break away from the norm, to slow down and smell the proverbial roses... or cow or elephant dung. It's not about what you'll do after you retire, it's about what you do before you die.qChris Collard, Chief Editor of Overland Journal Magazine, United States qThey're intent on completing their round the world trip in 10 years and, possibly, to invent whatever excuse afterwards to remain in motion.qLonely Planet Magazine qThey've lived through everything... from elephant attacks provoked by getting too close to a herd with calves to getting shot at in Ethiopia.qTVE, Spanish Television qWe are very much enjoying your book! Your stories really capture what overlanding is all about. Thank you!qRoseann Hanson, Overland Expo founder, Arizona, United States qPablo and Anna are genuine. Their vision is a simple one, without pretense, that offers the rest of us the option to attain our own dreams, no matter how deep. Pablo y Anna, bravo y buena ruta.qCemil Alyanak, Excess Noise, Washington DC, United States qWhen I pick up a book, I hope that the pages that are about to reach my eyes are ones of treasure, ones of inspiration. I want to be transported into the world of the writer as they share their story through their mesmerizing words, those of wisdom, strife, and adventure. Reading a title such as this already takes you to the front step, and Pablo Rey's enchanting tale does the rest. You hear of so many stories about the race to travel and it leaves you wondering... What happens when you stop running and just be? To take a whole adventure, and make it your whole life? The definition of 'exploring' doesn't even begin to cover it. Pablo takes you through a whole new transformation into a world that the English language barely has words to define. I can only imagine what it would be like to be a fly in Pablo's brain as his words are so artistically magical, that it is impossible not to whisk you away into this alternate universe.qSarah Blessington, Exploring Elements AROUND THE WORLD IN 10 YEARS CONTINUES AT WWW.VIAJEROS4X4X4.COMFirst and foremost, this is a story of people. This overland autobiography will leave you laughing aloud, inspiring you to get out and experience another part of the world a€“one that is well outside your comfort level.
