Bassam Tarazi (here’s his Travel Style) is an international travel warrior, an inspiring motivational speaker, and the founder of the blog Colipera. His book, “Borders, Bandits, and Babywipes: A Big Adventure in a Tiny Car,” details his journey as he and his friends, via Amazon, tackle the “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.”
