  • 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 making plans for our next overland trip. December 2019 we will fly to Chile where our adventure will start. During our first weeks in Chile we want to get to know the culture and learn Spanish by doing a workaway. And in our free time we will go car shopping. Yes indeed, you read it right. We want to buy a car in Chile for our South America overland trip.

    And some extra information 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. 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.
