Everyone loves lists. So here is my top 21 list of the greatest road-tripping music, ever … and in no particular order.
Graeme is almost seriously convinced that he is a reincarnated Viking. His longship is a long Land Rover called Mafuta or Big One in isiZulu. His wife is known to the Norwegians as Shield Maiden and he has a passion for beer and (free range) meat. Both his children are large and blonde (except for his daughter who is small and brunette). The Bell family will soon be heading very, very far North doing their bit to end Malaria deaths by 2015 with Malaria No More.

I think it was Paul Theroux who said “bad roads, good people”. That has been our experience in Brazil but we have also found good roads, good people and no roads, good people.

We’ve arrived in Argentina for the first leg of our massive expedition across the Americas. Buenos Aires has been an absolute culture shock. The area we’re staying in is covered in street art and graffiti – here’s our view of the city in photos.
Myself, my wife and our two kids are soon going to be heading off on an epic journey from the bottom of South America to the top of the North American continent.
I’ve been preparing to go on an intercontinental overlanding expedition from Argentina to Alaska … and it’s every bit as daunting as it sounds. Here are 10 tips I’ve learned while preparing for the adventure.
On a recent trip to the Baviaanskloof with two Norwegian overlanders we learnt a few things about ourselves.
Travelling with kids can noisy, messy, infuriatingly hard work. But kids see things old eyes don’t, kids live in the moment and remind us what it was like to be young and carefree (careless?).
Overland camps are great places to meet like minded people, grab a cold beer after a long day of driving and to get advice from travellers coming from where you are going. My top ten Overland campsites all have one thing in common – character.
On a recent overland trip to Malawi we decided to take the road less travelled, with interesting results.
