Who We Are

Who we are: Ferenc & Evelin from OverlandSite
We are Evelin and Ferenc. I want you to think of us as your advance scout!
Your trusty guide who’s already been where you want to go.
So far I’ve been to six continents and well over 70 countries. Evelin is up to four continents but has her sights set on the other two as well!
For us, Overlanding is incomparable to any other kind of travel style. There’s the tourist experience and then there’s the Overlander experience. The highest points of our travels have almost invariably happened in some small, remote village or on an off-off road.
We hope you’ll visit our website often to see what’s new.
