↠ Professional photo filters ↞

After a long 4 months of this VAN LIFE BUILD project we finally have enough electricity, water and other essentials in place to put our new tiny home on wheels to the off-grid test. We head 3 hours north of Toronto to explore some of Canada's most stunning wilderness. But, of course, van life has it's highs and lows, and relearning how to find stealth camping spots presents us with our first van challenge. Sorry again to the kind gentleman who we accidentally trespassed on his property ????. We then realize our electrical system really isn't complete without our solar panels and we're limited on how long we can camp out off-grid. No one say van life is easy but nothing good comes easy... amiright?

How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa
After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon it in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN ????

Life After Vanlife: Why I QUIT full time touring

Everyone wants to know how to live in a van, but is Vanlife all it is hyped up to be? What are the downsides? How do I prepare for vanlife? What are the pitfalls of life on the road?

After nearly 8 years of full time touring, I have decided to quit living on the road and return to a more regular way of living in a house.

In this video I explain my reasons, and how these might help you if you are considering a life on the road.

Previously I have made these videos that you might also find useful:

#vanlife security, it's important and not something to be taken lightly! Unfortunately, break-ins are common for many who travel in campervans/motorhomes/RVs etc... as most people are aware that people travelling will have goods with them, which might be valuable to a thief (when we were broken into in 2014 they even stole my make-up!). Check out our video where we talk about:

WE GOT ROBBED - Someone broke into our van | Van life nightmare

Security is one of the biggest issues when you're travelling and living in a van full-time...
Especially when you're in regions, where people are rather poor, you'll always be seen as the rich traveller.
So the criminals probably won't even feel bad for stealing your stuff out of your camping car, because they might think, that you're just on a holiday und you'll just drive back home when something like that happens...
Well, if you're living in a van full-time, of course you'll have all your valuables in your van... and you can't always take things like notebooks with you.

We were in the wrong place at the wrong time and, moreover, we were a bit careless for the first time - and we were punished directly for it.

But still, the most important thing is that we're healthy.
Life goes on.

At least Maria filmed a pretty entertaining video after we got robbed... ????
We thought that it's important to show you this side of van life as well, because that's definitely also a part of the reality of van life.

Still, we're loving the freedom of living and travelling in a van and we won't let it pull us down!

I Met a Girl While Living in a Van

I met a girl while living in a van, living the vanlife, and traveling around. Soon later, she decided to come with me. She sold her car, quit her job, and came with me to experience the journey with me. After traveling solo for a long time, I didn't know it yet, but I was ready to share all of this with someone else, it just had to be the right person.

Happy Valentines Day, Lashes.

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

Van Life Money: How to Eat for Free

When you are van-dwelling, a nice warm meal from a restaurant is the best! We have discovered a way to eat for free, and depending on the restaurant, even have a little money on the side! It's called Mystery Shopping!

This is not limited to restaurants (although that's our favorite!) Cade goes through different types of mystery shops, which websites and apps we use, and tips on being successful!

Mystery Shopping is especially great for people who live in a van, motor home, RV, etc., because you have the ability to take part in shops all over! It really adds some fun during a long driving day!

If you liked it, share it!

RV Living in Colorado ???? RV Boondocking Mistake & Success ???? Free RV Camping in a Camper Van

In today's van life RV living travel vlog, I show you RV Living in Colorado, an RV Boondocking Mistake and Success, and Free RV Camping in a Camper Van.

So I decided to break camp and try some RV living boondocking on my own. I headed for Twin Lakes for some RV boondocking but quickly realized that was a mistake. Twin Lakes is a really popular area and I made a boondocking mistake and tried to find a boondocking rv site on a Friday afternoon!

Bad idea, Colorado RV camping is the best but find a boondocking spot on a Friday or a Saturday is really not smart. Since my RV living is full time, I can plan my boondocking RV moves and make sure I try to find Colorado RV camping on a weekday!

Eventually I did find a free camping spot. I tucked my campervan back into a van life spot I found on Campendium. If you are a into vanlife or rv living make sure you check out campendium and then bounce that RV camping recommendation off freecampsites.net.

If this is your first time to my channel I travel in a Winnebago Travel 59KL. Im loving my Travato so far and really happy with what Winnebago put together here. I will continue to explore RV boondocking spot living in my van and continue to pass on my cheap RV living tips. Van living is not for everyone but I've quickly discovered I love living in my campervan.

Check back for more boondocking, RV living, RV life, van life and Travato content.

Thanks for watching,

Kevin

THERE WAS A SMALL EXPLOSION IN OUR VAN

We've run into to several issues since buying our converted sprinter van, but this was by far the scariest. As I say at the beginning of this video, I realize I made some bad decisions in this situation that put us in danger. Thankfully, we are both fine, and we have learned from the experience.

How We Shower in Public Places | and Montese, Italy - Van Life in Europe E24

Living in a tiny van doesn't mean we can't have a giant shower. Normally we put up the back hatch and hang a shower curtain, but that makes it obvious that we are taking a shower. Not a problem when your out in the woods by yourself. But often van life takes you to places a little more public, so we came up with this idea using our awning hide what's going on behind the tarps.

We also take a look at Montese, Italy. It's become one of our favorite stops on this trip. It's a hidden city high on the top of a mountain. It has a rich history and really kind town folk that know how to welcome visitors.

VAN LIFE | We discovered the BEST sport for Van Lifers | Sprinter Van Conversion

We've enjoyed disc golf for a while now, but we have learned that it truly is the best sport for van lifers because the discs are packable, minimal, and courses are typically free. After a nice round, we roll on out to our next Harvest Host, 4e Winery, where we enjoy some good wine, fresh produce, beautiful views, and friendly people. Our life in the van gets a little bit better every day.

❤ We're Lisa and Josh, and after a few years of working in the Bay Area, we decided that that life wasn't for us. So, we quit our jobs, and decided to chase our dream - to travel to every single country in the world and make videos while we did it. Basically, we're travel vloggers. Follow along (and please subscribe while you're at it), as Lisa - the self-proclaimed introvert, and Josh - the incurable extrovert, go on adventures around the world (or in our own backyard, until the world is safe and open for business again!) We hope you find that what we create inspires you to chase your own dreams, no matter how big or small.

VAN LIFE | Our first night as van lifers was TOUGH | SPRINTER CONVERSION

We had a perfect day at our Harvest Host, but a not so perfect evening when we discovered a leak in our faucet. We woke up exhausted and tired from a sleepless night. Tough first day as van lifers, but after fixing our leak, we made up for it with a nice trip to visit family in Minneapolis.

Are you in the rat race? Retire early!! (RV Living)

Are you stuck in the rat race and would like to retire early? Well, I have discovered a way through living full-time in an RV. Some people choose the van life, some convert cargo trailers, and some people even live in their cars. This is not just about saving money, but a lifestyle to enjoy freedom from the rate race and to retire early. I hope you join me on this journey.

A little about us...

We’re Lucy and Ben, two photographers from Cornwall, UK who’ve been living and travelling in our self-converted LDV Convoy camper van for the best part of four years. We’ve travelled all across Europe from West to East documenting our encounters with the people we meet as well as our own travels and adventures. We embrace the ethos of slow travel and minimal living, generally spending between 2 and 8 weeks in each country, getting to know each culture, cuisine and people as though we were locals ourselves as well as hiking, wild swimming and camping as we go.

We are currently on our third 7 month long road trip, travelling through the Balkans for the second time beginning in the French Alps and venturing as far East as Turkey, visiting 13 countries in between.

Our plan was simple: visit every country in Europe in our rusty tin can of a van. So far we’ve made it to 28 countries, travelling as far West as Portugal and as far East as Ukraine, having all sorts of crazy adventures in between.

Our main motivation for our travels is to capture photos and create documentary projects, so our van is primarily a vessel for our photography. We tend to focus on topics such as nomadism, traditional ways of life, the effects of recent political events and the difficulties of living in remote rural areas as well as documenting our own adventures and lifestyle on our various social channels.

We’ve had so many memorable experiences on our travels, and our photo documentary projects have given us an intimate insight into the lives of many different people and brought us together as friends.

We've visited the folk living in one of the most remote corners of Europe in the Albanian Alps, experienced the culture and traditions of the horsemen in the Hortóbagy National Park, and experienced life with Roma gypsies in their village in Romania, and there's still so much more to explore...
