"If we asked you what contiguous countries you'd like to overland the answer would have to be the great American journey. From Canada down through America and into Central and South for three years and more. Now that's an epic adventure most people can only dream about. Ernesto and Taisa are Overland The Americas and they know how to explore like only a few do. Rhino-Rack spoke to this amazing team so you can understand what it takes to pick up and go on the adventure of a lifetime."

"Do you ever sit there just scrolling through Instagram hoping you’ll run into a new post by your favorite instagrammers? Well we do, and we are always stoked when @OverlandTheAmericas posts something new for us to drool over. Ernesto and Taisa have been one of the most inspirational overloading couples we follow, well you know they’re tied with @DeskToGlory. But that’s a story for another time. Ernesto and Taisa left Seattle in their trusty Toyota 4runner in mid-2015 to explore all 23 countries in the Americas. We were able to catch up with Ernesto and Taisa via email and asked them some questions about their inspiring trip."

Top 10 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts by OUTWORLD
We're humbled to be included in OUTWORLD's 10 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts! Thank you so much guys!
Taisa & Ernesto are currently on a 23-country expedition covering North and South America. Their 5th gen 4Runner isn’t the most extreme build on the web, but it’s practical and used more than most would ever dream. This is legitimate overlanding with awe-inspiring photos and stories, but without the corporate overtones."

Our friend Klaus Moreau, Nancy Diaz of Mundo Turca in Lima, Peru and Mitsui Automotriz worked on putting together this video interview and offered us the opportunity to share a little about our overland trip through the Americas. Thank you very much guys!
Interview with Ecuador's Ministry of Tourism (Spanish)
This is a short interview we had with The Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador in the beautiful city of Cuenca about our trip and experience in the country. Thank you so much for the warm welcome Ecuador!
We're really stoked that a few of our photos have been featured in Overland Journal! Thanks guys!
"They [Overland The Americas] are the ones experiencing the trenches and mountain tops, but they do a wonderful job of making you feel like you are part of it as well, though their photography and story telling.
I have included just a small sample of their amazing journey here, but you can view additional photos and really dig into the spirit of their trip and the many amazing places they have passed though with social media. I highly recommend following their travels on Instagram and Facebook.
One of the best parts about following their trip is that they seem to really know how to soak up the culture and take the road less traveled. They take the time to explore individual places and it never feels like they are in a rush to get to the next destination.
They are a great reminder that life is truly meant to be lived to the fullest."
