Bassam Tarazi scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro, trekked to Everest, navigated New Zealand’s Grand Traverse, and hiked in Patagonia—but it wasn’t enough.
Inspired and challenged by his quests of “getting there,” Bassam Tarazi and two friends signed on for the infamous Mongol Rally, a nearly 10,000-mile road trip from London to Mongolia through terrain that would make a mountain goat’s knees buckle, in a vehicle that was little more than a go-kart.
Borders, Bandits, and Baby Wipes is Tarazi’s incredible tale of what comes with life on the go and off the map. It’s a dive into cultures and cop cars, big thoughts and meltdowns, and what it means to be human while covered in a constant sheen of awe and grime.
Borders, Bandits, and Baby Wipes is a story about the kind of adventures we all said we’d have one day but never do. It’s about a world beyond our expectations, and our place in it.
