Seems like a good time to share this snap from Tanzania. As our disgraceful so-called president throws a tantrum because he didn’t get his way, it’s worth remembering what kind of people we really are as Americans. Our tax money went to support a road in Tanzania, linking villages together. That same tax money - our money - should not go to build walls to keep people apart. We’re from a complicated country with a complicated and troubling history. But I still believe that the idea of America is a good one. Seeing this sign reminds me that we can choose to be our better selves. We have to do that right now. ✌️ #choosegood #americathebeautiful #roadsnotwalls #tanzania #america #usa #thisisus #unitedstates #buildpartnerships #travel #ontheroad #roadsign #dotherightthing #africaoverland #overlandafrica #overland #overlanding #whoweare #nowall #nowalls #callcongress #stevedaines #greggianforte #jontester @greggianforte @jontester @jontester @stevedaines

Hedada ibises. We’ve grown to love the ibises here. They are unbelievably loud, with a harsh call. Our first introduction to them was when they would land en masse on our roof and make a racket. Now, we spend evenings on the patio watching them fly home from their day. Of the many, many things I will miss about Southern Africa when we have to leave, watching the ibises go home is at the top of the list. ✨✨✨✨✨✨ #hadadaibis #ibis #southernafrica #africa #gaborone #botswana #birdsofinstagram #birds #wildlife #natureisamazing #natureisawesome #theworldisawesome #theworldisamazing #expatlife #venturesomemore
We love the road food. In Uganda you can get a Rolex, which is a hot, thin, perfectly seasoned omelet laid over a fresh chapati, garnished with small onions and fresh tomatoes, and wrapped up like a burrito. It is magic, magic deliciousness. We stopped in a tiny village and bought one from this kid. Quite the crowd gathered to watch us order, and the cook was shy, but acknowledgement of good food is universal, and our smiles when we took our first bite made him smile as well. 🌯 #roadfood #streetvendor #streetfood #rolex #uganda #chapati #omlet #africa #trynewthings #travel #eatthefood #eattheworld #overland #overlander #overlanding #africaoverland #overlandafrica #streetphotography #roamtheplanet #localcuisine #eatlocal #venturesomemore #travel #wander #wanderlust #tryityoulllikeit #goodfood

I think it’s fair to say that there’s no shortage of testosterone in overlanding. It can be a very male-dominated sphere, so when three women started Women Overlanding the World it was a welcome space for female overlanders to talk, trade ideas, and connect with each other. 

I was excited to be one of their featured women a few weeks back. Most overlanders like talking about overlanding, and I love talking to women about women, so it was a real treat for me. Plus, their questions really got me thinking about how I perceive this lifestyle and my own choices. And, I’m totally honored to be featured next to other women overlanders I’ve followed and admired for a while now, including Emily of Two Dusty Travelers, Julie of Tucks’ Truck, and so many others. 

You can read the full interview on the Women Overlanding the World blog. And you can give them a follow on Instagram to connect and keep up with some of the baddest women on the road.
