Namaste, travelers.

2010NewYearWe’ve done a lot of thinking about how to bring in the end of the decade that started with the crazy Y2K shenanigans and we have a couple ideas that just might tickle your fancy. These new year’s parties won’t be in any major city and will be anything but typical. Isn’t it time you broke away from the new year’s party mold and started off the year with something different?


Try these on for size.


BCRThe Budapest-Chernobyl Run is launching its inaugural route on December 29th from Budapest, Hungary. This drive-anything expedition will traverse the Hungarian countryside into the castle-laden land of Romania, then continue through the beautiful valleys of Moldova, across the disputed region of Transnistria, and into the notorious land of Ukraine, where you will get the chance to see, firsthand, the abandoned town of Priyat and the specific location of the Chernobyl disaster. Oh yeah, and if you register for this awesome adventure by November 16th, you can save some bucks for some fantastic party accessories (including your favorite beverage)! Check out the Budapest-Chernobyl website for the route map, detailed information, and the registration form.

Classic Run logoHere in India, we’re taking an old route to the new year! The Classic Run, which started the whole Rickshaw Challenge back in 2006 as the Indian Autorickshaw Challenge, will be taking several teams from around the world from Chennai, through the state of Tamil Nadu, to Kanniyakumari, with a fantastic new year party in the former French colony of Pondicherry. Romania may be castle-laden, local wildlifebut Tamil Nadu is temple-laden, and these are some scenes you won’t find anywhere else on Earth. Plus, you’ll be in the driver’s seat of Asia’s most beloved little vehicle, the autorickshaw! This is the classic style of autorickshaw adventures and will always be the first, the original, and the papa bear of autorickshaw tourism in India.

Regardless of where you choose to bring in the new year- in exotic Eastern Europe or tropical Tamil Nadu- we guarantee an adventure that you won’t soon forget and stories that will never grow old. Brush off the dust of the past decade and start anew. 2010 is going to be incredible.
