I did try to search for answers in this topic, but couldn't really find an answer to my question.

Why is a VT + VTI advised? And not, for example VTI + VXUS?
VT + VTI overlaps on North America afaik.

SavageBrother:

I gave a reply to this question on the first page of this topic. I realize that reply is outdated, but I don't have time now to bring it up to date now.

Edit: It is updated now.

Best wishes

It's not. The Three Fund Portfolio would be VTI, VXUS and BND if you are using ETF's.
