Who Are We?

Hi there! We are Taisa and Ernesto of Overland the Americas. On July 18 of 2015, we quit our desk jobs and started driving our Toyota 4Runner, Sooty, from Seattle to South America. We drove across all 23 contiguous countries in the Americas living out of our car for 3.5 years. We're now back in the United States traveling across the country. Join us on our adventures!
