Christian Pelletier on Not Taking Traveling the World so Seriously


Matt Scott and Scott Brady interview Christian Pelletier on his time working in West Africa, buying used vehicles in Australia and South America, and the not taking travel so seriously. Christian is a technology professional (also Overland Journal’s CTO) that has traveled to over 80 countries.

Guest Bio:

Christian Pelletier
Christian got the overlanding bug back in the 1990s when working in and exploring West Africa, and it never left him since. He has been involved with Expedition Portal and Overland Journal since the early days and has seen the market grow and explode in the last few years. When he is not busy exploring a remote corner of the planet, you can find somewhere around Lake Tahoe biking or snowboarding.

Lisa Williams is an Arizona native that spent much of her childhood exploring backroads with her family in whatever project vehicle her father was wrenching on at the time. She has traveled the continental United States by foot, by Ford Econoline, and, most recently, by Jeep Cherokee. All her passions center around driving, connecting with nature, and a deep love for adventure. Though a practicing weekend warrioress, she aspires to write, photograph, and eventually rally race around the globe and share her journeys through photojournalism. Upcoming goals include competing in the Rebelle Rally, the Baja 1000, and an immersion into the less-traveled roads of New Zealand in her 2019 Toyota Tacoma.
