who is who

Akis Temperidis, professionally is a journalist and photographer, specialised in travel, motorsports and adventure activities. After a long career as a tester and writer at 4Wheels magazine of Greece, he decided to make his dream come true and travel around the world. So, project The World Offroad was born.  Addicted to nomadic life since then, Akis can't wait hitting the road again. The greek overlander now works in Italy in different projects, as a partner of the Maserati in Modena, as a photographer and pubblishist for the Tsunami Racing Team. Akis is also a freelance correspondent to the 4Tpoxoi magazine and to the most popular car website of Greece, NewsAuto.

 

Vula Netou was a contemporary dancer and choreographer. She worked for years in theatre and as a dance teacher. She shared the same dream with Akis and she travelled around the world for almost 4 years. When the couple was in Tanzania, managing a Safari Lodge in Saadani National Park, Vula got pregnant. She gave birth to Anastasia in 16 May 2012 and now she feels ready for the next around the world expedition. "I only need a toilet and a bed for the child", she says.

What is The World Offroad?

It is our life since 2007 we started our trip around the world. We needed 1234 days through 66 countries in 5 continents to complete our first expedition. 167.500 kms in all. It was a lifetime adventure for us and a huge media success in Greece as well as abroad. In addition to more than 1000 articles on our website, there were more than 600 printed pages related to our around the world expedition at the most popular magazines and papers in Greece, Italy, India, Australia and Peru.

In 2018 we depart for our second tour around the world in a rugged, desert coloured Iveco motorhome. This time our challenge is a little bit more complicated, as we are three now, together with Anastasia, our daughter that was born in 2012. Our second expedition aims in inspiring families to travel as it will show that you can make a living on the road and brilliantly educate your child.
