Dave and Angela bring so much valuable information in their two part episode! From their inspirational stories of overland travel through more countries than we could keep track of, to a story and lessons all of us should learn from with Angela requiring emergency surgery in Uzbekistan (full story).
Listen-in to both episodes as we discover what inspired overland travel for this Scotland couple, along with all their inside tips on overlanding adventure.

We think you will find their articles helpful in planning your overlanding trips, as much as they are inspirational.
