“We all define home in different ways. To a lot of people it’s a specific city; for others, it’s their parents’ house. But, for some, home is a red Toyota pickup and the person sitting next to you.

Ashley & Richard are the overlanding duo that make up Desk to Glory. They hail from Vancouver, but you’ll currently find them on the road, somewhere between Panama and Patagonia. That’s all we’ll say for now… for more of their story, check out the video below!

Working with Desk to Glory was nothing short of inspiring. They pushed us creatively, and simply being around them was a great reminder of how contagious enthusiasm can be. If we were able to capture even a fraction of their passion and drive, then we’ve done our job.”

    Fantastic video!!! Oh boy, Ash… when you said you flew home to Vancouver and felt indifferent I understood perfectly how you felt down to the core of my being. We are currently working our fingers to the bone to get our house ready to get on the market and… I just don’t care about it. I look at the recently finished master bathroom and think “that looks nice” with a very abstract, third person sense of non-interest. We are cursing ourselves for having not done a lot of our current projects over the last couple of years, knowing we were planning on leaving, but realize, again, it was a feeling of indifference. This property has truly never felt like “home”… home was on the road when we did our RTW previously, and home now is in our camper on the weekends and mini-adventures that are getting us through until we leave again. And, like you guys, we have never been happier or healthier or felt more authentically us than when we were out exploring the world. Love that they captured your feelings in the video and, as always, so wonderful to be in touch, even just online, with others who feel the same as we do! Happy travels!!!!!
