Calcutta to Kannur
Why make a journey of thousands of kilometres in an Ape vehicle, on three wheels, in a country where this vehicle is generally used for short distances, such as a taxi or to transport goods within the city? Why face hours and hours of bumpy roads at a speed only slightly greater than that of a bicycle? The answer is simple. To realise a dream that is hidden within us from childhood. To face the world as if it was still a charming place, where self- interests, practicalities and performance are unimportant. Where competition is only internal, with oneself. Where life is not calculus, but wonder. Where travel is not only about the destination, but a way to get lost in the journey.
Travelling with an Ape Car is a serious matter. It means we, as adults, finding the seriousness that children put into games!
