My love for travel has been there for a long time. By the time I was 21, I had spent half of my life living in Europe and half living down under in NZ, but my love for 4WD comes from the days of driving over some of greatest sand dunes in Oman. My father was a expat in the Middle East for 30 years. Many a family holidays were spent in Oman, or UAE, when GPS navigation tools we know today were not available and with no maps available. Oman had only just opened up to Westerners.
Some of my greatest memories are my dad and I are driving in Toyota Prado 4WD down the dunes… let me restart, my dad was driving and I was most probably screaming of excitement, plus the wonderful camping trips into the desert. Such great memories..
So after my diagnosis in late 2015 of Hashimoto’s, with a few years of recovery, we went off to wander, discover and explore the world in 2018.
First bucket list item on the list was to wander Australia and explore the remote areas of the Australian desert and Western Australia, then to complete our global travel across the world by train. We needed to complete one more section: the Trans Siberian railway from Hong Kong to Beijing, Mongolia for more 4wd driving, then into Russia..
