New Year, New You?

How Oasis Overland can help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions in 2019.

As 2018 comes to a close, I’m sure many of us will be looking back at the past twelve months and the New Year’s resolutions we failed to keep, and promising ourselves that next year we’ll do better! Well, a problem shared is a problem halved, and Oasis Overland is here to help you stick to even the toughest resolution!

So here are last year’s ten most popular New Year’s resolutions, according to a YouGov poll, and what we at Oasis Overland can do to help:

1. Eat better

The Mediterranean diet is widely believed to be one of the healthiest in the world, but did you know that the cuisines of South East Asia are close contenders? Why not join Oasis Overland on one of our South East Asia Explorer trips to try a Thai tom yung gung soup, or a tasty Vietnamese phở?

2. Exercise more

Why not get in shape by training for a challenging climb up Mount Kilimanjaro?

3. Save more money

Sure, you could save up for your retirement, a house deposit or a new boiler, or you could save up for an epic overlanding adventure through Central Asia… I know what I’d rather do!

4. Get more sleep

Do you often find you can’t get to sleep, be it due to noise pollution, or your pesky smart phone distracting you with that glowing screen and constant access to social media? Then why not disconnect and have a refreshing night’s sleep camping in the wilderness of Kyrgyzstan with Oasis Overland?

5. Read more books

One of the joys of overlanding is travelling slowly across vast distances. Many of our travellers use long drive days to their advantage by getting stuck into a good book. All our custom-built trucks have on-board libraries, so you’ll never be short of a novel to read whilst cruising through Brazil on our Rio to Manaus expedition!

6. Learn a new skill

Looking to learn a new skill in 2019? Why not pick up a new language? How about French in Morocco, Spanish in Peru, or Persian in Iran?

7. Get a new job

Are you hard-working, resilient and on the lookout for a new adventure? Why not apply for a job as one of our fantastic Oasis Overland crew!

8. Make new friends

Looking to expand your social circle? Join any of our Oasis Overland group tours! We have a great track record of bringing together

individuals who go on to form lifelong friendships, relationships and even marriages!

9. Get a new hobby

Yes, you could take up knitting, stamp collecting or baking… but doesn’t mountain biking in Bolivia, skydiving in Namibia or hot air ballooning in Turkey sound much more fun?!

10. Focus more on appearance

You may have read this one and be thinking how on Earth can Oasis Overland be linked to focussing more on your appearance; surely travellers are less inclined to worry about how they look? Well, have you ever thought you’d look good with a nice bushy beard? Or are you regretting cutting yourself a fringe after a few too many wines at last week’s office Christmas party? Then why not join our epic Trans Africa expedition and see how fabulous you look after 40 weeks without a haircut!
