1 Scout - 1 Vespa - 1 Side Car - 1 Charitable Cause - 6 Countries - 7000 Kilometers

The Mission

1 Scout - 1 Vespa - 1 Side Car - 1 Charitable Cause - 6 Countries - 7000 Kilometers

Anyone can take a plane or a boat to travel to a new destination. But the true challenge is pushing ones abilities to the extreme.

Based on the adventure of a few English scouts the team came up with the idea of driving a Vespa with a side car from Bangkok to Japan, which is about a 7000 km trip, the final route and distance will be calculated soon.

With this in mind the team has applied to Guinness World Records for the longest scooter trip with a sidecar ( claim 446056 ) .

The objective

The Karuna Expedition is more than just an attempt to break a Guinness World Record, in fact it is much more. Leo and the team hope to use the attempt as leverage to promote the fundamentals of the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

The values of Scouting; respect, belief, care, integrity and cooperation are principles integral to the Karuna Expedition and we will advocate them in the hope to encourage the development of tomorrow's generation.

Leo believes that the Karuna Expedition will inspire the youth of the countries where we will travel as well as the many participants at the World Scout Jamboree , and ignite a desire to explore the world whilst respecting the environment.

Ultimately, through the money we raise for the World Scout Foundation, the Karuna Expedition intend to reach those children from less privileged backgrounds and champion an active outdoor lifestyle; a scouting lifestyle.
