  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
As we continue our attempt to drive around the world in Trudy our campervan, we leave Albania and cross the border into North Macedonia. The weather takes a turn for the worse and we explore the lake city of Ohrid, as we continue our journey south.

This is by far the most challenging OVERLANDING VANLIFE Adventure travel series that we have ever done (and possibly on youtube) one that will definitely change us for ever more. Driving around the world is going to be both a physical and mental challenge and one that will test us to the limit.

One thing is for sure this is going to be a road trip that you wont want to miss, the ultimate vanlife road trip. So make sue you click subscribe and the bell to make sure you don's miss an episode.

We want to say THANK YOU to our main sponsors - A Plan - Thatcham Services, who have kindly sponsored our van for the EU and have paid for our Travel Insurance so we stay safe on the road. They provide cover for all campers and motorhomes and specialise in insurance for custom (self build) vans so if you have built your own or have a van or motorhome yourself then give them a call. We also use them for our own house insurance. The good news is as a Tread the Globe follower you get a preferential rate so give them a call (quote TREAD the Globe)

Let’s not dwell on the dark clouds in life at the moment..Id rather just keep enjoying watching two very ordinary lovely people live out everyone else’s dreams..so come on everyone keep the chins up & pull together, but ultimately stay safe & look after those most vulnerable. Fingers crossed for you guys 🤞 keep the flag of dreams flying 🙏

The TTG Drinking Game Team would like to thank Chris for all the "actually" and even a "lovely" or two. Huge props to Chris for trying to increase female subscribers by doing a topless bedroom scene. It was a bold move.

Where we live, all the schools, bars and restaurants have been ordered closed. Safe travels and we wish you well.
