Here you will find photos, videos, video-blogs, blogs and news about our overland journeys, about our adventures, about our misfortunes, about our dreams, about our thrills, about our desires, about our frustrations, about our old bangers, our machines, our cars, about our LAND ROVERS and SANTANAS, about a bit of everything – but over and above all, about our friendship, about our complicity and our striving for freedom.

And so, friends - welcome, come in, make yourselves comfortable, and enjoy our experiences with us as much as you can.
