" My world tour is planned to be special and adventurous.  I have this 86 year-old happy car taking me along the world map.

Goran was in Mangaluru with his close friend Jan Henrik Branmo, 60, also from Sweden. He set out from Sweden a few months ago and reached Mumbai two weeks ago from Iran via ship. He has travelled through all the European countries, Turkey and Iran.
