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.
Look further than the beaten path and challenge yourself to cross some (personal) borders. Don’t let people tell you that you can’t do it (and don’t tell yourself).
Life changing adventure doesn't have to be epic. Take every chance you can get. Go to that hiking trail 20 mins away. If you are on a business trip, leave the hotel and go get dinner across town. Even if you take a taxi or uber, you get to meet the people that live there and hear their stories.
Travelling and exploring other cultures makes you a better person. It opens your mind, lets you grow as a person and is the best cure for prejudices and racism.
Adventure has always been a great part of my life. As a kid there was lots of off-roading, fishing trips and road trips. When you come from a family of aviators, adventure seekers and explorers, it’s natural to carry on that legacy.
We are more open to new things. Not scared of the unexpected, that is always around the corner. And we learnt to know each other better, km after km.
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!
I really can't remember a time I wasn't exploring. My best childhood memories are camping in my grandfather's Westfalia van, sometimes just at local campgrounds, but for a five year old that was an adventure!
When we first met we were backpacking travelers for many years. Since 2006 our Anni was born, we have rented motorhomes and toured Canada and Alaska. This is where the desire for our own vehicle arose, to be able to travel independently. We have had our Unimog since 2017 and are on the road with it in Europe, because Anni still goes to school.
We aim to learn at least the basics of each language for the countries we travel to, we find locals appreciate that you’ve made an effort and it can be hugely beneficial when shopping at local markets. We also have a windows down policy (weather dependent of course) when travelling through most areas who do not see a lot of foreigners.
