Duncan, from Wellington in New Zealand, has been on the road with us in South-East Asia, Central Asia, India and South America since November 2014.

- What did you do for a living before becoming crew? 

I worked for other overland companies before Dragoman, and before that I was working for DHL in New Zealand.

- Why did you become Dragoman crew? 

To experience the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Asia from behind the wheel and under the truck!

- What's your favourite destination? 

Mandalay is a standout. The sunset at U Bein bridge or beers overlooking the Irrawaddy river...

- What has been your favourite or most memorable occasion on the road?

Standing on a temple at sunrise in Bagan, and watching dozens of hot air balloons drifting overhead.

- What's the most essential item in your backpack? 

Head torch and sunglasses. Comfortable vision is a priority!

- What is your one piece of advice to future overlanders/passengers? 

Life is short and the world is wide. Get out there.
