Our spark for vanlife started in 2010 when Henri and his two friends bought a van in New Zealand. We drove around the two islands for three months in search of the best biking spots. In 2012 we returned to New Zealand together for studies and camped and surfed whenever we had the time. Since then we have dreamed about having our own van and have made some shorter trips. We got our van in February this year and are now finally building our first home on four wheels which we are very excited about.
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.
