The GlobetrotterGirls and Infinite Adventures in a nutshell
The GlobetrotterGirls are Dani and Jess, a German-American couple traveling the world non-stop since April 2010. The Girls are passionate about exploring with their eyes wide open to all the little details that make each corner so unique. From far flung adventure destinations to neighborhood cafes, street art and all sorts of spicy foods, Dani and Jess create unique, authentic travel experiences to ignite an eternal passion for travel with all of their GlobetrotterGirls Getaway guests.
Infinite Adventures: After backpacking throughout West Africa at the beginning of 2011, Nat decided to make her life's passion her job. She quit her office job in Germany and worked as a tour leader/driver/mechanic in Africa along with South America. While Dave was working for many years throughout North America, Africa and South America, he felt that the North American market was missing an opportunity to provide a true Overlanding experience. Working together in Africa (where Natalie and David met) they decided to take a next step and start their own company, Infinite Adventures.
In 2012, they remodeled a yellow school bus into an overland vehicle to take like-minded people with them on the road. North America has many beautiful remote places to visit and long distances to cover. Since June 2013, they have been on the road driving ATKA, their overland vehicle, between Arizona and Alaska.
