Clever Forever To Wherever.
Welcome To Our Overlanding Site!
We are Margriet (1952) and Jan (1954); welcome to our travel site. Between August 2013 and November 2015 we drove over land from the Netherlands through the Middle East to South Africa, from January 2016 to April 2017 we traveled in South America and from September 2018 until March 2019 we were in Australia. In August 2019 we returned to Australia for trip continuation through Australia and Asia.
Since October 2012, we are the proud owners of a Toyota LandCruiser with camper construction that accompanies us. We call him "Dappere Dodo" (Brave Dodo).
The first plans for an overland trip came up in 1977 during a tour through Morocco and Algeria over paved roads with a normal car when we saw groups of mainly Swiss Land Rovers traveling across the Sahara to Tamanrassat and Timbuktu. That we wanted to do too! One night talking in Namibia with a Dutch couple that came from Europe overland via West Africa helped to make the plan for overlanding more concrete. Although traveling through the Sahara is no longer possible, overlanding is. It did not remain a plan, but we've really done it!
Tools, Tips and Tricks
While we traveled we collected knowledge, learned travel tricks, developed tools and got tips that we are happy to share.
