I’ve been asked ‘Why another One Life account?’

Aren’t there enough already I hear you say! Well, maybe not all is as it first appears. Read on………

We are two people with a thirst for travel, adventure and overlanding, oh and Marc is of course a terminal Land Rover fan! Marc and Lisa met two years ago and currently live in South Wales, UK with their young daughter Alys (Aly Lilly to us!) Teulu, their Cocker Spaniel and Marc’s first daughter Caitlin.

We wanted to share our experiences with anyone one who has the time to read our blog, our Instagram, You Tube channel or Facebook Page.

As well as our overlanding travels we will also blog about the Land Rover, 4×4 and Overland shows we visit up and down the UK. The shows probably account for the biggest part of our travels in any one year so keep your eyes peeled for that as there’ll be lots to tell.

By now your probably wondering why One Life Overland. Afterall, there’s plenty of One Life…. accounts about, right? First of all for those of you that don’t know let me tell you a bit about the actual ‘One Life, Live It’ motto. It seems to link back to the Camel Trophy series adventure challenges when Land Rover supplied the vehciles for the expeditions and it just seems to have stuck with Land Rover ever since.

For me however, it’s far more than that. You see back in 2011 Marc had a heart attack (well, a few actually) and afterwards found out that he suffers from a hereditary condition that means his body cannot control cholesterol. Thankfully, all controlled by medication now which I will take for the rest of my life but I’m still here, that’s the main thing. So, that is the reason why I named our account One Life Overland. It’s not just about the link to Land Rovers and Overlanding but more about the reality that we really do only get one shot at life and you really should live it to it’s fulllest. Make the most of everyday and never take anything fro granted. On each of my arms I have a tattoo. On one side its says ‘ONE LIFE. LIVE IT’ and on the other it says ‘CARPE DIEM’. The full sentence in Latin being ‘Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero’. Or roughly translated as ‘Seize the day, don’t put your trust in tomorrow’.
