Ann & Lotus the Truck

Overlanding alone as a woman is not an easy task, searching for safe campgrounds, avoiding lonely roads or just parking on the beach for a coffee. Hopefully through my experiences and my knowledge I can not only inspire other women, but share what I learn along the way and the locations I discover on the road.

Blog & Articles

On a daily basis I get messages both on Facebook and Instagram about my travels, my setup, my camping days, even stuff like “how do you pee"?”, or “why don’t you find a boyfriend to camp with”? So here go my stories, from silly videos I put together to info on my truck, the gear I use, the places I visit and the stuff I eat. Because things are always better when shared!

Women Overlanding the World

This year I’ve had the pleasure, privilege, honor, lucky-ness of taking part in joining Women Overlanding the World crew on their retreats in Costa Rica. Being a part of this group has been amazing, just being able to hang out with women who “get me” is out of this world - sharing my country and what I love with women in general is just the cherry on top! Our first retreat was in May 2019 and our next will be in November. 2020 is creeping up so we’ll have one next April too.
