It all began somewhere in Australia’s Western Desert: ... the campfire casting shadows across the bush and zillions of stars above us (most surely with the help of a good bottle of Australian redwine) sparked the dream to start travelling in our own 4-wheel and for a longer period. Surviving a nearly fatal accident in Australia in 2009 made clear to us that only a large 4-wheel could be the car for us!

It took us another three years of dreaming and planning and in 2011, there it was: a brand new Land Rover 110 was handed over to us. Bit by bit the dream started to become reality and slowly and thoroughly we converted the Land Rover into a proper overland vehicle

Our two daughters were born in 2009 and 2012 and they really seem to enjoy our nomadic lifestyle ... What a great gift they are! Another dream come true!

Two shakedown trips to Scandinavia and the Pyrenees followed in 2012 and 2013.

This year’s “Overland Reunion“ also was a great step in the process proving that there are people feeling and dreaming the same way we do ... Thanks to you all, you gave us a warm welcome – just like coming home!

And, here we are today: Still one year to go for the long overland journey but only two days to go until we start our first “real“ overland adventure and “go East“.

As planned, here is our overland blog ... we hope you’ll enjoy it. Please feel free to contact us or register, and post comments.

It is great to see that things are possible – one just has to grab the chance and go for it!
