This is the journal of our travels. Our future plans aren’t over ambitious and the trips and journeys that we have completed so far don’t compare with the many life-changing adventures that I’ve read about on the Internet, but we are happy and enjoy being somewhere else.
We are a mature married couple and a Yorkshire Terrier called Ruby. Don’t be fooled by the Yorkie, she means business.
She was named Ruby because we bought her as our Ruby Wedding anniversary present to each other, so technically she is half mine. Guess which half I got.
escape route (ɪˈskeɪp ruːt)
- a planned means of escape from a dangerous situation
- a way out of a difficult situation
- a means of distraction or relief, esp from reality or boredom
It’s loosely titled Escape Route as it is our means of escaping the problems & worries of normal life and having a little adventure
There is a page detailing the vehicle we are using and the modifications I have done to make life a little easier, however I will warn you that it does ramble on and can be a tad boring.
Overlanding in its simplistic form is to travel by a road vehicle. It usually involves some form of camping and is more about the trip rather than the destination.
It can be a trip that takes months or years or a weekend excursion to get away from our usual life.
It can be a short trip around the area you live in or a full blown across continents expedition.
It can involve travelling on tarmac roads or dirt tracks
It should be about enjoying yourself, experiencing fun & fear, appreciating the people you’re with, the people you meet along the way and the places you see.
