You may be a seasoned traveller in need of some fresh inspiration or someone who dreams of heading out on their very first global adventure. The explmore community share a sense of curiosity about the world and a desire to grow a greater understanding for each other and for the planet.
While you create your own roadmap, we encourage you to draw inspiration, be emboldened and learn from adventure-seekers past and present.
For us, explmore means continuing to explore as long as we can, adventures bring us so much, we have to live them to the fullest.
Lawrence's father unfortunately passed away in his 50s before he reached retirement, and this has encouraged us both to live for the moment. Life is too short to not seize the moment and do what you are passionate about.
One thing you realize very quickly when traveling land-based, is how small our planet really is. Everything is connected somehow and the challenges we face can only be coped with as a community. This may sound romantic, but it turns out very true when you have seen many different perspectives. Embracing global cultures by overlanding is extremely helpful to that.
Traveling and living on the road for 4 years changes you profoundly. It’s hard to see life with the same lens as we did prior to our trip. It brought up the best of us and made us feel hopeful about the things that we worry about. Yet it made it clear that we have a major responsibility regarding conservation and empathy as individuals and as a society. It made us become aware of what really is priority in our lives and what isn’t.
I've been stabbed, bitten by a very poisonous snake. Held at gunpoint on a number of occasions. Beaten up by Venezuelan police who thought I was someone else. Held in a cage blindfolded... I dropped an axe through my foot whilst in primary jungle. The list goes on...
The Land Rover community is truly unique in the way that it feels like an international family. Social media is really helpful in networking with other travellers, sharing tips and giving support. We try to be friendly and approachable with everyone we meet when travelling. Sharing food is a great way to connect.
We were rock climbers before we were overlanders. Our passion for exploration stems from our love for climbing. Climbing takes you to the most remote and beautiful places in the world. Now we access those areas overland, taking our home with us.
