Rensina van den Heuvel


I travel as much as I can and usually overland in a Gaz 66 truck with my partner. I offer and run Overland Driving/Walking Tours in Mongolia and Morocco. I like the connection with folks from many cultures.
Just beginning a Women to Women Empowerment Project in Mongolia which will entail teaching women in remote villages how to sew, providing them with a machine and all the gear. The plan is to help them earn a sustainable income.
I live on a remote property in North Queensland, Australia when I am home. I sew bags with a logo to sell to raise money for the project and write (usually travel) articles for the local Newspaper and magazines.
I am currently writing my second book about travelling overland in a Russian Gaz 66 from Finland to Jordan.
I am also a qualified Counsellor.
Love to hear from you.

An adventure travelogue. Driving overland from Australia to the Netherlands via Korea, Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, across a stormy Black Sea to Bulgaria and onwards. I fell in love with Mongolia, land of blue sky and nomads. In freezing temperatures, there's nothing like camping in the wild to stretch you way out of your comfort zone. Jump into this story with me and you'll experience it.
