On August 17th of 2014 they are leaving again, for their second world trip with the same car. The Land Rover motorhome was rebuilt for the second adventure around the world. The new project is called Mundo por Terra - Latitude 70. The couple want to reach three points in the world above Latitude 70 N: in Alaska, Norway and Russia. The last one will be the biggest challenge of the expedition, as they will try to do it on winter time, crossing the coldest inhabited place in the world.
