Overlanding is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanised off-road capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time and spanning international boundaries.
Freedom is the greatest requirement for me to travel. Being self dependent makes that a whole lot easier. Having everything on or in your car allows you to roam freely and spend your days and nights where-ever you feel like. I prefer to be far away from the crowds, close to nature and my family. That’s why I love to “0verland”. The journey starts from the moment we step in to the car. When we leave, we don’t have any plans, we make up the route and find places to sleep along the way. This has always led us to nice places, warm people and stunning views. We like being on the road and wander in a certain direction without having a clear goal. Coincidence, weather, people, impulsivity and a good portion of luck and faith are our navigation tools.
I can talk for hours on every aspect of our overlanding life. But if you narrow it down you can split it up in 3 major parts:
- The travel reports: The essence of our travels, experience, discover and wander.
- The Rig: How I organised my car and trailer in order to travel independently
- Camera kit: Being a director and photographer is not a job, it’s how I look a life and document every aspect of it. An overview of my travel camera kit.
