Julie has been on the road with us since 2013 and is our Gold Medal winning Wanderlust Guide of the year for 2018!  We asked her a few probing questions about life on the road with Dragoman... Why did you become a guide? Growing up in our family bed and breakfast, we had a large map of the world on the wall; so our guests could place a pin from their country and town of origin. When I turned 19, I set off to explore some of these pins myself. After years of travel experience, I realised that this knowledge could be…

Sinead has been on the road with us since December 2014, we asked a few probing questions about life on the road with Dragoman...     Why did you become Dragoman crew? I had been travelling for a while and couldn't get used to being back home and someone told me this would be the job for me. My sister did a Dragoman trip 11 years ago and even though I was too young to become crew at that time, I spent years planning my fantasy future trips until I was old enough to apply. The week of my 25th birthday,…

Jeroen (Dutchie) has been on the road with us since October 2015, we asked a few probing questions about life on the road with Dragoman...     Why did you become Dragoman crew? I had been travelling for a while and couldn't get used to being back home and someone told me this job would suit me. And it does!! What’s your favourite destination and why? Mongolia as I think it's still true overlanding there with lots of bush camps, river crossings, roads that you dont know where they go. I must say that Namibia is a close 2nd as the diversity in this country…

Because I love overlanding and life's too short for all work and no play!  What’s your favourite destination and why? Torres del Paine Chille for the worlds most amazing scenery and treks, anywhere in India as the culture is crazy different, east and South Africa the birth place of overlanding for the wildlife and worlds best skies!     What’s the best thing about working as…

Katie has been on the road with us since 2012, we caught up with her to ask a few probings questions about life on the road with Dragoman...     Why did you become Dragoman crew? It was to travel. I realised I was never going to get to all of the places that I wanted to travel to unless I got involved in the tourism industry as I simply didn't get enough time off.  What’s your favourite destination and why? Difficult question! Argentina. It has everything except an accent I can understand. Good food, good wine, stunning mountains and…

Nick has just got back from our epic Cape town to Cairo route, We caught up with him back at HQ to ask him a few probing questions...        Why did you become Dragoman crew? I love to travel, I love mechanics and it just seemed like the ideal combination.  I had seen Dragoman trucks in Ecuador when I worked there and eventually met another crew, had a chat and the rest is history.  What’s your favourite destination and why? Too difficult!  I love Patagonia because of the fantastic scenery, the people, the wine and the steak and it…
