After being introduced to Mark and Jolie from one of our listeners, we were delighted to arrange an interview with this Australian couple as they prepared for a month long hike in Nepal.
Jolie and Mark are on a three year overlanding trip from Australia to London in their 2006 Toyota Troopcarrier. After a twelve month buildout, they departed their home in Australia in July of 2017, and headed North. Their YouTube series is inspiring to watch, as they document their amazing overlanding journey. Be sure to subscribe to their channel, as they travel through areas some of use might have reservations about. Showing the world, just how friendly and beautiful each destination is along their Australia to London route.
