Ruby the Landy

Trip Start: May 31 2016 - Trip End: Jun 01 2017

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention
of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in
broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming,

WOW !!! What a ride!

Ruby is a wonderful 90's 300Tdi Defender looking forward to her trip around the world in 2016 with her two owners Jen & Gav.

Before Ruby came along we had both traveled and the idea of driving around the world started in 2009 after spending a week driving through the Serengeti in a Defender.

After a few years of traveling with Ruby around Europe and Morocco we were as ready as we would ever be, handed our notice in and set a date of departure.
