Toronto, Canada, May 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Their travels have taken them around the world, but it's what Dzido Szoltysek and Paul Todd are planning to do next that really set them apart from the average traveler. With nothing but a rental car and a sense of adventure, the two 24 year old men from Toronto plan on roaming the vast countryside of Ireland for ten days . . . the kicker? They're doing it without maps, GPS systems, or guidebooks. Instead, they'll be relying solely on the directions given to them by the people they meet along the way.
“Our travel plan goes a little like this,” says Dzido. “1. Begin at airport... 2. Ask for directions... 3. End at airport.”
This isn't the first time the duo has taken such an unorthodox trip. Their previous adventures include racing around the world from London to Sydney, camel trekking through India and running with bulls in Pamplona. And during each trip, they've kept online readers engrossed by updating regularly on their travel blog, Real Men Ask For Directions
Their latest trip is no different from the rest, as they have already started to blog about their trip preparations.
“We settled on Ireland pretty quickly since it is somewhere we have both wanted to go for a long time,” writes Paul. “Then we got to thinking about what we would need to rent a car and travel around Ireland: guidebooks, maps, etc. Then it hit us- why be a slave to guidebooks that have sent us to boring locations and hostels that closed years ago. We began to envision a trip without any “artificial help”. Surely it could be done. After all, guidebooks haven’t always existed!”
The next chapter of the Real Men Ask For Directions travel blog is set to begin at the Dublin airport on May 24th, 2008. Upon arrival, the pair say their first plan of action will be to burn their map. From that point on, the trip is in the hands of the men and women of Ireland.
