What do you love most about overland travel?

Not missing out the little things that make journeys memorable. With no racing to airports you can take the time to learn about people and their cultures.

Which of the Sundowners Overland destinations fascinates you most? 
Rich in culture and with such diversity in landscapes Russia is high on my ‘to do’ list. With beautiful palaces, museums and mesmerising history, Moscow and St Petersburg will be the next for me to conquer.
