Josie Haugh

Country of residence: UK
Adventure: The length of America (in a van!)
Dates: Oct 2017-Sep 2018

My boyfriend and I have always known we’d like to see the world, now this is a reality. Our idea was to travel from the top of America to the bottom by land. This mad idea suddenly took hold and before we knew it we had a vehicle to carry us the 30,000 miles. We’re now preparing to travel around Southern Hemisphere countries before we ship our trusty van out to Canada for the epic American journey.
