It’s Christmas! Super stoked to have Steve’s writing and Julie’s photography in the bible, @overlandjournal. * Border posts freak out a lot of overlanders, and for some reason rumors, myths and misconceptions about crossing borders in Africa abound. We’ve crossed lots of borders and have never had a problem. Borders and customs agents are almost universally professional, if not always efficient. But it’s all part of the journey and we’re happy to dispel some myths about travel in Africa. * Be prepared. Be friendly. Be polite. Do your homework and act like you know what you’re doing, even if you don’t. Remember that you’re a guest in someone else’s country. When all else fails, be patient. You’re not going anywhere, anyway. * Read it, pack your passsport, and get on the road. * #overlandjournal #overland #overlander #travelwriting #travelphotography #borderpatrol #bordercrossing #getoutthere #africaoverland #overlandafrica #africa #defender110 #landrover #landroverdefender #onelifeliveit #venturesomemore

If you’ve been following us on Instagram and Facebook, you know that Julie and I were honored to chat with the good folks at the GHT Overland Podcast a few weeks ago.

Our conversation was wide ranging – covering everything from personal hygiene to border crossings, and portable 12 volt fridges, to some of our favorite stories from the road in Africa.

Chris and Lisa are real pros – they turned our chaotic ramblings into two tight and informative episodes, which you can find on their podcasts page, and, as the kids say, wherever you download your favorite podcasts.

Give GHT a follow on Instagram and Facebook to get updates on future episodes – it’s one our favorite podcasts to tune into for those long driving days. We always learn a lot from our fellow overland travelers from all over the world. As they say, “Show gratitude, be humble, and have the tenacity to tackle life’s adventures!”

We’d love to hear from you if you have feedback or any questions about anything we talked about on the podcast.

Travel well! Or, as they say in Botswana, “Tsamaya tsentle!”
