Rensina van den Heuvel


I travel as much as I can and nowadays, usually overland in a Russian Gaz 66 truck with my partner. I run Overland Cultural CampingTours in Mongolia and organised Cultural Tours in Morocco. I like the connection with folks from many cultures.
2014 saw the success of the first Women to Women Empowerment Project in Mongolia which entailed donating an industrial Overlocker to a social enterprise project, which will assist a few charities to provide sustainable employment opportunities for disadvantaged women.
Home is on a big, remote property in North Queensland, Australia.
I work from home selling Solar Lamps and sewing canvas tool rolls etc.
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.
