Meet Yasha and Juergen. Yasha is Australian by birth, Juergen was born in Germany and is Australian by choice. We have just finished our second "Pan Americana" trip. But that does not mean the end of our overland travels; our next destinations are Europe and the Middle East. Our aim: to encourage you to take a similar journey and provide you with information about overlanding and select destinations!
We drive and live in our self-built overland camper, called "Berta", who was conceived in Germany.
