Sure, we have our own adventures but at times it’s great to be inspired by other overlanders and read a good overlanding book – e.g. to get a feel what it is to traverse Africa, or to drive down the Pan-American. Is Europe that interesting as an overland destination? And traveling solo across Australia on a motorbike, is that even possible?
Some of these adventures are today, others took place in the 1930s, 1950s and 1960s – the ‘good’ old days without digital navigation systems and social media to distract you from your journey.
So here are my picks to get inspired, to enjoy – whether on the road yourself or as a armchair traveler.
