We met young, Lidia was 20 years old, and I was 23. After changing our jobs several times, running our own business for four years and move to live in different countries we decided to move on once again, and in May 2014 we bought our first house, La Furiosa; a 1994 VW T4, which ever since has been our home around the world. The decision to live traveling was not hard; it didn´t cost us any headache, neither have to think too much about it. It was a decision like any other we make in life; it makes us grow inside, improve and get further.
Like many other travelers we began to pay for our adventure and way of living by savings, and thanks to an austere life; refusing the unnecessary when the unnecessary does not make any sense.
After three years on the road, we have finished our second book “Guide to Live the VAN LIFE”, and we continue working on different projects that help us to keep on the road, surrounded by nature and having the earth as our garden. Waiting for something new to come and driving into the magic of the unknown.
We have crossed 25 countries with the camper van, sailing the Atlantic Ocean with her and getting to the End of the World, for now, we keep on driving the 3 Americas all the way up to Alaska, from there, we will plot out a new route.

VANLIFERS OF THE MONTH
Traveling in a van allows me to chose what and when happens, eat healthily and enjoy the moment as opposed to the control of work! There's nothing better than waking up and deciding there and then what to do, where to go or not.
Now that our daughter is here our decision to live in a van feels even more right. With ten months old she lived more than half her life in a van. And we feel she loves it.
We love to breathe the salty air at the ocean. Most times we’re traveling in Northern Europe, but just now we have been traveling through Southern Europe for six weeks.
