The travel substitute for those stuck indoors.

Whilst overlanding is often considered by practitioners as being the best way to spend time, the months spent saving and preparing can seem interminalbe.

Not anymore!!

Just click here, travel from your armchair and get scores for the privilege.

(warning: very addictive)

I think speed may count more than (or at least as much as) accuracy - i got a level 6 (world) trying to be accurate, and a level 11 (world) just trying to get the blasted thing (which is way too small!) somewhere close ...

Damn you!

I'm meant to be leaving in two days, I've got a bag to pack. But I just can't stop clicking!

Didn't realise how shaky my South American knowledge was though.

33kms?

I nailed it within 16kms of Warsaw Poland, and 8kms from Asucion, Paraguay. Of course, that was all luck. But it did happen!
