Rensina van den Heuvel


My partner and I are Australian Overland travellers. Sometimes in a Land Rover and other times in a Uaz Russian 4X4 van or our Russian Gaz truck.
We have run a few Overland Cultural CampingTours in Mongolia and I organise a walking Cultural Tour in Morocco most years.
Home is on a big, remote property in North Queensland, Australia.
Currently writing my second book about travelling overland in a Russian Gaz ex military truck from Finland to Jordan. We've also overlanded from Bulgaria to Senegal.
We are planning to go down West coast of Africa in December 2017, from Bulgaria.

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.
