Now That's What I Call A Roadtrip!

Meet Herman and Candelaria Zapp and their four children. Paloma, Pampa, Wallaby and Tehue. They have been driving their 1928 Detroit-made Graham Paige (Model 610) around the world since they left Argentina childless in 2000. They can't go over 40 miles per hour so they have avoided all of the highways. The family eats, drinks, sleeps, and the children are home schooled, in the vehicle.

All four kids were born on the road in different countries, Pampa, 8, in the United States; Tehue, 5, in Argentina; Paloma, 3, in Canada; and little Wallaby, 1, in Australia. According to the article at MSNBC,
Together, the Zapp family has traveled across Japan, Korea, Canada and New Zealand. They spent a year in Australia, 13 months in the United States and most recently visited Brunei and Malaysia. Along the way, they’ve had visas denied, close-calls with robbers and been served meals that included monkey and live ants.
