Just in case you thought vehicle based travel was all fun and games, we thought we'd let you know some of the challenges of overlanding you might face if you choose this lifestyle. This is not to complain, to say I do not love this life, it is just to highlight a few...read more
The unknown is something that you can only ever fear or embrace. The open road. The journey. Unrelenting tarmac, yourself, your few meager possessions and your ride. Nothing is more evocative of the freedom and myth of the American Dream. The romanticism of this...read more
With our overland prepared, distinctive and branded Landcruiser, our happy faced hound dog, and what we hope appear as happy, friendly demeanors, we are approached by friendly strangers several times a day, wanting to know more about Overland Travel, our journey and...read more
There has yet to be an instance on this trip, (and I hope there will not be again) in which I find myself as close to giving up on the whole thing as I was on that particular night, overlanding honduras, a small distance from Puntal Sal and the Janette Kawas National...read more

“Are you not worried?”, my mum said over Skype. “Not really, it's always fine” I replied, “You talk to people, they tell you not to drive this road, don’t drive after dark, there are bandits with AK47s here on Sundays and so on”. Reflecting later on our conversation,...
We decided to travel in a group during this trip and if I had to pick one question that I was probably asked most regularly, it would likely be: "wow! Four of you travel together! Do you not fight!?" My response is usually to laugh and say something non-committal...
We decided to visit Lake Atitlan! The huge and spectacular Lago Atitlan was quickly to become our home away from home. We had been on a quick time limit to reach the town of San Pedro. As we were booked in for a few weeks of Spanish lessons, where we would stay with a...
Think you might want to overland Guatemala? Here's a post highlighting our favourite parts about time driving through this amazing country! Guatemala was wonderful, for me, it was a true highlight of the trip, perfect weather, delightful locals and scenery and variety...
Borders, Barges and Belkin. Our week in Belize. Entering Belize was a little complicated; initially helpful border officials and the shift in national language from Spanish to English meant us progressing at lightning pace until it became time to clear the dog and his...
The trip that we set out on and the trip that we had envisioned were bound to be different. There was, however, no way we could have predicted the way that this trip has actually gone so far. The level of breakdowns and other problems that we faced in the US alone was...
Our journey across the United States took us 179 days. Over 12000 Miles. 700 gallons of fuel. 3 gearboxes. Having now spent 3 months enjoying everything Mexico has to offer and with time to reflect on our time there I wanted to take those numbers and reduce them down...
Pulling into the obscure labyrinth of streets in this historic city was an otherworldly experience. The warren of tunnels and overhanging buildings rendered our GPS immediately useless and within minutes we were gleefully lost. We later learned that the tunnels were...
One of the (admittedly few) curses of long term travel, is the overall inability to spend much, if any time with family and friends. This year, having been away for nine months, I was lucky enough to get a flight back to the UK to spend ten days with good friends,...
