Meet the authors

Alec and Jan first met in Germany whilst both serving in the British Army. Alec, an aircraft engineer in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) and Jan, a midwife nurse in the Queen Alexandra Royal Army Nursing Corps. They instantly shared a love for each other and a hunger for adventure. 

Their 1977 overland journey changed their lives, and led them into careers working in community development projects in Mali, West Africa, Germany, and Moldova. 

Today they delight in the adventure of sharing their story and inspiring travelers to explore more of the world, engage with others, and embrace global cultures.
