About us

On Spark Overland you will find information about what it takes to prepare and undertake overland travels. We provide postings about our preparations, and our travels as we go along. We post anything from our perspective, what we find is important (or not). If we can, we will try to help you follow your own travel dreams. We hope to inspire and captivate you to ignite your own (overland) travel spark or even fire! Follow your dreams to explore and discover!

Though we have chosen the Landrover Defender 110 as our vehicle to travel with, a lot of the information and knowledge we provide will be equally relevant if you own another brand or type of vehicle. For us, the most important thing is that you enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures, with whatever means of transportation you have chosen.

Some 15 years ago, we started traveling and have grown into a family of 4 along the way. Our children are still small, so we adjust our way of traveling. We travel a lot slower, but that does not mean we enjoy it any less… on the contrary! The adjustments to our travel-schedule, the car and the length of our trips make that all four of us really have a good time. We love to see our children play on the beach, splashing in a mountain stream or running through the forest. And so we make sure to cater for these activities as well!
