“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”

Eh.. How many years!?
Yes, you read it correctly. We have been on the road since 2003. Where have we traveled? And where we go next? Here's the story.
Karin-Marijke & Coen
Strange names, aren't they? Who are we? Where are we from? Does Karin-Marijke refer to one person, or two? Find out here.
The Land Cruiser
We bought a well-used LWB 45 series Land Cruiser, which was one of the last to roll off the conveyor belt in Japan in 1984. It came with standard disk brakes in the front, power steering, and a full-floating limited-slip axle. Together with the über-simple four cylinder, natural-aspired diesel plant sans CPU, this Land Cruiser was a reliable choice for a long, still ongoing, overland journey.
If you don’t understand any of the above-mentioned terms, don’t worry, in 2003 we didn’t either.
You'd like more details about our home on wheels? Find them here.

We Rob Banks
That’s why we are on the move all the time 😉
All jokes aside, do you wonder if we're millionaires? Whether we won the lottery? How do we finance such an extensive trip? Coen’s standard reply is that we rob banks, but that is not true, of course. Or is it? Find out in the links below.

In your Basket
A man walked up to the Land Cruiser and asked,
“Hey there, I saw you had T-shirts for sale. Can I have a red and a blue one, please?”
For many years we carried postcards in the truck in case someone wanted to buy them on the road, plus we could send them across the world easily. However, T-shirts are a different ballgame. We'd need a trailer to stock the variety of shirts we sell. That's why we teamed up with strategic partners around the globe. We design it, you shop, and they make sure you get what you asked for.
Check out our T-shirts, stickers, notebooks and other fabulous Landcruising Adventure goodies.
