  • Description

    From March 2017 till November 2018 we traveled overland from Europe to Central Asia, Mongolia and back to Europe. (Find us as "sixwheelseast" on Instagram if you're curious.) Through this overland experience we've become quite adept at mechanical work on the car and motorbike, chopping wood for campfires and managing all the administrative work that goes with driving across the globe in our own vehicles.
    Currently we are on our second overland trip. December 2019 we flew to Chile where our South-American adventure started. After buying a car in Santiago we headed south till the pandemic started. Now we are searching for places where we can stay several weeks, just to keep a low profile during the pandemic and make ourselves useful.

    A bit more about us:
    Loes has a master's degree in Organisation Studies and worked as project manager at the Dutch postal agency, focussed on the human side of the organisation. Currently she started working remote as a virtual assistant.
    Harm followed his bachelor's degree in Leisure Studies with a master's in Marketing Communication. He then worked at an online marketing agency in Rotterdam, focussed on Google's advertising and web analytics tools. Currently he is working remote as well on these topics.
    We're not necessarily looking to work in these areas but if you have any questions regarding those topics we are glad to help you out.
