Solo Vehicle Dependent Exploration, Travel & Adventure


100,000 Hits



We ticked over 100,000 visits today, from over 150 countries since we have been blogging with WordPress over the last three years. Quite remarkable for such a niche activity. It is also fitting that this month marks our 7th year of International Overland travel with the Defender.

Thanks to those who came for a look, thanks to those who followed our 2013 adventures but the biggest thanks go to you. For still following along to see where we end up next.

See you on the road



Merry Christmas from Sirocco Overland
