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.
