We are a family of ten feet – six human legs and four doggy paws, all aware that spending quality time travelling together is all that matters. That is why we are in love with overlanding.
By definition, quoting Wikipedia, overlanding is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanized off-road capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time (months to years) and spanning international boundaries.
So, basically, the journey is our destination. Our journeys are heavily spiced with the fact that we travel together with our baby girl and our hairy dog. Some people call that crazy, we call it fun.
We like to travel to mostly forgotten, remote and sometimes even desolate places of our planet, enjoying their yet unspoiled beauty and serenity. The insights we share on this page is rarely about popular tourist destinations. So if you come here and look for information about big cities, popular locations and events, famous landmarks, museums, churches and other “old rocks”, as we like to call them, you might be disappointed. But if you like overland, off-road, pristine remote locations, almost forgotten treasures of natural and human origin, wildlife and serenity, we hope you like our page.
And there many quotes about travelling, but let us expose three:
“It’s not the destination, but the glory of the ride” — Edward Monkton
“Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer” — Author Unknown
“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” — Dalai Lama <— this one convinced us he really is a smart guy.
Oh, let’s make it four:
Life’s a journey, not a destination. – Ralph Waldo Emerson?
