CROSSING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN SO2-Ep2

CROSSING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN SO2-Ep2

  Getting vehicles across high seas has always been a headache for overlanders. In our case, this was the first issue we had to solve since crossing the Atlantic is the only way to get to South America from Europe. The freight company of Grimaldi was the solution...
CENTRAL EUROPE(THE TAKE OFF…)SO2-Ep1

CENTRAL EUROPE(THE TAKE OFF…)SO2-Ep1

  Overlanding is defined as a self-relying journey where the primary goal is the journey and not the destination itself. But what does that exactly mean? We overlanders are a different breed of explorers. Seekers of wild places, peoples and cultures that we love...
GREECE & THE BALKANS WARM UP TOUR

GREECE & THE BALKANS WARM UP TOUR

Like all athletes do before the final race, we felt like it was compulsory for us to head out before our next big overland exhibition and do a warm up. Having limited time we quickly planned a 2-week trip around the Western Balkans, an area that is becoming more and...

Fellow Overlanders

11th South to 55th North

It has been almost six months since the last time we wrote a new article here, since the official end of our epic journey. But believe it or not, not one day has gone by without thinking where would be our next destination. Here in the Maldives and with extra time in...
Switzerland

Switzerland

06/1989-07/1991 I visited the land of Swiss chocolate and cheese in 1991, on my way to Holland. I was 20 years old back then and I had graduated high school just two years before, so I was ready to experience new things. My first stop in this small but well organized...
Spain

Spain

11/2004 & 12/2009 From the Roman amphitheaters to the Muslim palaces, from the Gothic cathedrals to the Modernista construction, this country is a treasure of artistic and architectural marvels. Spain was my traveling target twice. In 2004 I visited some of the...
Slovenia

Slovenia

04-2013 /7-2014 Slovenia is a tiny country I rushed through on a ten-day trip to Central Europe, in April 2013. It’s about half the size of Switzerland and its population counts just over two million people. The only way to describe this pocket-sized independent...
Slovakia

Slovakia

8/2014 All though we drove through it all, Slovakia for us was just one overnight  stay in  the capital Bratislava during our overland trip from Europe to Australia in 2014. Overwhelmed from it’s neighbour Czech Republic this small country does not fall back in...
San Marino

San Marino

07-1991 Perched on the top of a rock at 657m of elevation, the 61-sq-km Republic of San Marino is Europe’s third smallest state after the Vatican and Monaco. It was a day trip destination in 1991, on my overland trip to Europe with my family. About 2.1 million...

Romania

Romania

8/2014 Romania was in my travel plans for quite a while but I had never been there until a couple of weeks ago, when Rochelle and I rolled Voukefalas to the Hungary-Romania border. As we crossed the border and we were officially stamped in Romania, we had a pleasant...
Monaco

Monaco

11-2010 This small principality on Cote d’Azur was one of my most recent visits but someone that was with me complained that I have not written about it yet “because you are ashamed of what people might think” as she told  me. So this is Monaco which I was...
Malta

Malta

12/2010 Malta is a small Island in the Mediterranean. Since I am a diver, Malta was one of my target destinations, but I always made plans to visit it sometime in the future because of its small size. The underwater world of Malta is probably considered the best...
Luxemburg

Luxemburg

08/1991 The country that has no real official border and can be crossed in less than an hour’s drive, this is what I remember from Luxemburg. I also remember that except for its capital, Luxemburg has no other cities that you notice on your way. That doesn’t mean that...
Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein

04-2013 It’s true; Liechtenstein makes a fabulous wine-and-cheese-hour break. This is how much time you probably need to get your bearings. Did you know it’s the sixth smallest country? It’s governed by an iron-willed monarch who lives in a Gothic castle on a hill....
