JK Overland, GHT Overland

Overlanding in Donald; a 1996 Mitsubishi Shogun


Jack and Kristina are from England, currently overlanding in Portugal on their Iberian trip. Finding a love for exploring and overland in their Jeep Cherokee in 2013. As with a lot of things, it all started from something very simple; a camping trip adventure .


Listen in as this young vibrant couple from England tell us about their love for nature, along with all their little tips and lessons learned as they have traveled in Spain, Portugal, New Zealand, Scotland and even a trip in Thailand. They tell us they're "new" to overlanding, however their past trips, experience and pure love for traveling and making new friends is both refreshing and inspiring!


To top off their wonderful stories and  experience, it was heartwarming to learn how they're picking up trash and plastics on remote beaches, doing their part, as we all should. Simply doing the right thing, leaving a place visited better than we found it.
