Overlanding is vehicle-based, self-reliant, long-distance travel where the journey is more important than the destination. We discovered overlanding in 2018, after we had already been traveling full-time for four years.
We weren’t sure if we were cut out for the level of intentional self-deprivation that overlanding requires–especially because we were traveling with a one-year-old at the time!

In 2018, we started preparing to overland around the world. As of October 2021, we launched our 10- to 15-year journey across all six habitable continents.
