For the Zapp's, their 83-year-old vehicle has become a home for the last 11 years, as they travel around the world on a never ending trip of a lifetime.
Spanning four continents, Herman and Candelaria Zapp have covered an incredible 142,000 miles while becoming parents to Pampa, eight, Tehue, five, Paloma, three and Wallaby, one.
Instead of returning home to buy a house, the couple decided to keep driving and show their family the sights of the world.
Former IT specialist Herman, 42, and his wife Candelaria, 40, set off from Argentina in 2000 and began driving across South and North America, as well as Australia, New Zealand and now Asia.
When the money quickly ran out on their first trip, they decided to rely on the kindness of other people who give them shelter, food and petrol.
'We were happy, we had everything a young couple could want, but we felt we had to go,' said Herman, currently in the Philippines with his family.
The only hard rule the couple have to stick by is the 40 mile per hour speed limit the 83-year old car is restricted to.
The Zapp family are always on the move, only stopping for short periods on their journey.

Remarkably, each of their kids has a different nationality, with Pampa, eight, being born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Tehue, five, being born in Argentina, Paloma, three, a native of Vancouver Island and little Wallaby, one, obviously from Australia.
The car was shipped to Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea as they travelled those countries and they are currently in the Philippines on a tour of South East Asia.
