We are from Bordeaux, France.
Since the time we met, in 2016. Both in love with the outdoors, wide open space and adventures. We immediately formed a beautiful team!
Sandy was already attracted to survivalism and bivouacs in the mountains. In 2014, she finished the GR20 Corsican circuit without assistance.
In 2015, for a TV experience, she survived one month in total autonomy, on an island in the panama.
For my part, I'm practicing hiking and trail running. Desiring to test my body and mind, I also experienced the RMC Découverte, and survived 21 days in a Croatian forest, but without clothes.
We both wanted to go further and escape into the wildest lands, which explains the acquisition of our 4x4.
Sandy and I are firefighters. We are therefore fortunate, through that training, to have acquired skills, particularly medical and navigation. Sandy studied aeronautical mechanics and she has car mechanics skills too. But we just start and discover what the 4x4 trip is!
France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, USA
With our old vehicle ( Volkswagen T4 ), the tour of Spain, and several journeys in France.
Recently owner of the Jimny, we tested it on offroads trails in Spain and France to prepare for larger road trips in 2021, if it’s possible...
We’d like to take our little Jimny to Morocco, for the beauty of the open spaces, the culture and fill up with the beautiful desert colours !
We are also interested in crossing French Alps and going to Tyrol, then Austria seeing the magnificent lakes and small mountain villages.
Southern Germany is also part of our top 3, including Berchtesgaden National Park.
France, of course! So many beautiful landscapes to discover! From the mountain to the ocean, we let ourselves be charmed.
We are travelling with a 2020 Suzuki Jimny. For the moment, it has a rack that posts a roof top tent and an awning (frontrunner). Soon, it will have a new AFN bumper, new suspension ( OME ) with a seat and new tires more suitable for off-road ( Cooper STT ).
We are always travelling with our Avanona Knife, an axe, walkie-talkies, a good pair of binoculars and.. BEERS!
The discovery of spaces that are difficult to access by the general public and require particular equipment.
We pay special attention to sharing and listening to others, forging ties is also part of the trip!
We all live in the same home, it’s important to be aware and to know our neighbours, to learn from their cultures, their customs in order to open our minds, to question ourselves.
Our goal is to get lost to get together. We suffer, like many, from this routine : work and sleep, 5 days a week. This comfort area that some people need to feel safe, us, we need discomfort and adventures. This makes us feel more alive than ever.
We both experienced survival, under special conditions in interesting biotopes, it was formative as much physically, morally and socially.
We had the opportunity to test mountaineering this summer, on one of the highest peaks in the Pyrénées, in France. This race was much more intense than we thought, we had to push into our entrenchments, within our limits. We got a good puff of humility in the head.
It makes us grow every little more. It consolidates our couple and our addition, exploring strengthens our ability to adapt, to compose together and with those around us. It strengthens our senses, because it is closer to nature and soothes us at the same time.
Adapt in all circumstances. Every moment counts.
We spend a lot of time in France, the latter for example, and we like to hike, climb and camp. Thanks to the 4x4, the places previously difficult to access are less so now and we discover even more from our dear country!
The explmore mantra means a curious community of others and their cultures, to discover the world. It inspires us to share in passion. With, at the beginning, a real story of love and adventure.
