Overlanders of the Year Award
Here is what they wrote with regard to our Overlanders of the Year award:
If you have been following Expedition Portal’s front page in the last few months, you’ll be familiar with Coen and Karin-Marijke of Landcruising Adventure. On the road since 2003, they’ve driven their Toyota BJ45 Land Cruiser through Europe, Asia, and South America taking their time to fully experience the landscapes and cultures they visit.
A decade may seem like a long time to traverse just three of the world’s continents, but their journey is not a trip so much as it is a lifestyle.
When the Expedition Portal team sat down to reflect on the past twelve months and begin the process of selecting the recipients of our Overlander of the Year Award, we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving than the adventure duo of Coen and Karin-Marijke.
We not only admire their unusually slow pace of travel, we are captivated by the elaborate stories and images featured on their website. Their collection of windshield views is one of the best pictorials in all of overlanding.
Ever eager to share in their travels, Coen and Karin-Marijke took the time to answer a few questions so we could all get more insight into what it’s like to travel for a full decade.
