How did we actually got an off-road car? Well... on our first big trip through Europe we came more often to points on our trip where the road ended for our van. The decisive point for the fact that we much rather wanted to have a car which is offroadable came then however in Montenegro. We were in the mountains of Durmitor National Park when it was spring. Of course, there was still a lot of snow up there at that time, but the roads were free everywhere and good to drive on. At some point, we came to a stop where a small hill of snow blocked the road and we couldn't possibly pass or cross it with our van.
Thus, we came to the wish on a somewhat more flexible car for a change.
That was the period where Hugo (Troopy) a Isuzu Trooper Magic 2 came into our life. A nearly 30 years old off-road vehicle with a lot of charm and character in which we immediately fell in love with.
A few weeks ago, we came to the point that Troopy did not want and could not do as we wanted. So, we sold him on the street to a man who gave us a jump start because the bae didn't want to start again.
This summer we’ll change to a new period in our travels with a new Van and we couldn’t be more exited!
Here are some of our favorite photos of Hugo and our adventures.
We had Hugo for about 4 years
and drove more than 70.000 KM
