Thomas Luyken

Parisian born Thomas has been on the road with Dragoman since late 2018.

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

I was going around the world building the deco part for music festivals and climbing on Dutch roofs installing solar panels, all year long.

- Why did you become Dragoman crew?

For everything there's a right moment, and right now it's time to be part of the Dragoman family.

- What's your favourite destination?

That must be Lake Atitlan in Guatemala situated between a couple of volcanoes and another lake next to Bacalar in Mexico also known as " la Laguna de los Siete Colores".

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

It was actually at sea, working as a deckhand on one of the backpacker cruises in The Bay of Islands, New Zealand. Waking up with about 7 dolphins playing around in front of the boat.

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

First make sure you have a good dose of health, love and happiness, then bring a head torch! 

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

Travel light,

Live light,

Spread the light,

Be the light.
