Who are we?

We are Kees and Mary and Ton and Manna, all some 60 years old. Mary and Manna are sisters. Over at least 15 years we are dreaming of a trip through North-, Central- and South America. The sisters have decided at this moment in time to join part of the trip in the USA and Canada. Maybe they will join us again later in Chile or Argentina.

Two years ago, in the beginning of 2004, we became pensioners. That yielded the possibility to travel during a long period. The crucial question, to travel or not to travel, and to materialize our dream had to be answered. And the answer was YES!

Firstly we made a time schedule, resulting in the fact that we wanted to start travelling in the spring of 2006.

Very quick, already in a week’s time we bought a suitable Landrover Defender model 110 Td5. The car was modified as a compact motor home/camper by Safari Services at Stein am Rhein (NB. Beautiful old city), at the banks of the Bodensee in Switzerland. Those guys, very enthusiastic professionals, used the car during some years for demonstrations at fairs.

Installed were a.o. a freshwater tank, additional fuel tanks, a Pop Top roof with 2 places to sleep and cupboards with a fridge. The underside of the car was provided with protective plating. Also a winch, heavy duty springs and shock absorbers were mounted. The complete list can be found in this website.
