The Latin America Overland Travel Blog

Hello & Welcome!

 

You have found the Overland Travel Blog for Latin America.

 

You might ask: “what is overland travel?”. It means that we drive our own vehicle, often taking roads less travelled. This form of travel is becoming more popular and gives us independence from set itineraries. We can stop wherever we like – just for a photo, or to see things not commonly mentioned in guidebooks.

 

We love sharing our impressions and knowledge gained along the way. If you want to explore Latin America in your own vehicle, you will find a wealth of information on our site.

So stay around and explore with us!

Yasha & Juergen of dare2go.com

Meet Yasha and Juergen. Yasha is Australian by birth, Juergen was born in Germany and is Australian by choice. Currently we are on our second "Pan Americana" trip, although now you can find us more often on some back roads. Our aim: to encourage you to take a similar journey, be it down to Patagonia, or an extended road trip through Europe or Asia. Just dare to go!
We drive and live in our self-built overland camper, called "Berta", who was conceived in Germany.
