This year’s NW Overland Rally was all about hanging out with our heroes and making future plans.
Most countries require a tourist visa of some kind for visiting foreigners. Commonly you’ll get a stamp in your passport and a set number of days you’re allowed to remain before exiting. For those of us traveling with a vehicle, there’s an extra step at the border and an extra piece of paper with its own, often different, time allowance.
This extra little token of bureaucracy is commonly known as a “TIP”, or Temporary Import Permit.
As I was deciding what to write about for the next blog post, I realized that our last two weeks had been filled with an abundance of one thing: internet! We posted up at an "Overlander Camp" for about 10 days of work and summer prep, but on paper we didn't done much. Then I thought, this might be the perfect time to write about something that I think people will find really interesting if they've never done a trip like this: where do you sleep when you're driving your car through a foreign country?
