The Baid family flew back to India and had their car shipped home.
This epic road trip by the Baid family is an inspiration to everyone who wants to travel. Updating about their adventures on their Facebook page Overland Stories, they have proved that getting married and having kids do not mean the end of travel adventures. In fact, travelling with those you love is one of the best ways to spend time together and rediscover each other.
As they say, the family that travels together stays together.
