It doesn’t have four wheel drive, but still has four wheels and drives! These vans don’t do as terrible in the snow as you’d think...weight makes a major difference. Nonetheless, we’ll be putting an LSD in it soon for better traction in the snow and mud. That, and chains, we’ll be conquering winter VanLife. . #motovan #vanlife #motovanlife #vanlifediaries #chevyvan #campervan #pacificnorthwest #pnw #woods #forest #camping #adventure #homeiswhereyouparkit #🚐 #wintervanning #snowcamping #snow #winter #winterroad
Who would’ve thought that the first home I’d own would be built on wheels?  Me. I thought it. I thought about it allll day everyday, figuring out all the whats, whens, wheres and hows. Now the only thing left to do, is to thoroughly explore this country from end to end. 📸 @rohansingh_suryawanshi
What’s it like waking up and working in your bus everyday? 🚌 . It’s like Christmas morning 🥳 . We have been living in Sunny for almost a month now. Many people are asking us what our plan is, and until recently we didn’t have one! We have been staying in one campsite at the Sunny Coast where we and my family are based to wait out the end of the year and catch up on some work. We didn’t see the point in leaving before Christmas as we wanted to spend the time with our family and friends 🥰 . But the very exciting news is that our first destination will be Tasmania! 🌲⛰ We will be heading down through NSW and VIC at the end of January to catch our booker ferry to Tassie on the 22nd Feb. We can’t wait to finally start adventuring in this big beautiful bus of ours, and we’re stoked to bring you all along with us via our page 🥰 . So many people ask us what we do for work: I (Samantha) am the founder of @my_pupper - I have my Mum making all of our accessories and I’m currently working on a new side project 🤫 and Tom is running his own Business where he is helping other Entrepreneurs and Companies to reach their monthly revenue goals by helping them to improve certain aspects of their products/services. Basically, he helps people grow their Businesses so they can live the life they want. . All in all - were pretty bloody happy with what we do and so thankful to wake up every day and work by each other’s side 🥰 . Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life 💕 . . . .  #vanlife#vanlifediaries#projectvanlife#homeonwheels#nissancivilian#vanlifeaustralia#vanlifecommunity#tinyliving#homeonwheels#busconversion#tinyhome#campervan#vanlifestories#buslife#buslifeaustralia#vanlifeaustralia#nissancivilianconversion
After about 8 beautiful months of traveling to different places, we are back at one of our favorite spots.. THE BEACH 🙌🏼🌞 Never thought I’d be this happy to have a van full of sand again!
@wander_ky Wellington! Aneb tohle tvůj účes určitě nevydrží! 🌬 Když jsme se řítily před pár dny do Wellingtonu, zdálo se nám, že se nějak zvedá vítr. Přisuzovaly jsme to změně počasí a vůbec by nás nenapadlo, co nás ještě čeká...💨 🌬 Naše čerstvě umytý vlasy, což je při životě v autě celkem vzácný úkaz, vypadaly po půl hodině, jako bychom patřily do kmene špinavovlasců (kdo neznáte RRRrrrr!!!, doplňte si vzdělání a trochu pogooglete)... nechat cokoli ležet, stát nebo viset mimo vnitřek auta, znamenalo téměř jisté a bohužel nepovolené ztráty... no spánek? Ten se taky nekonal, ono totiž usnout uvnitř šejkru je docela umění! 🌬 Když jsme se druhý den pokoušely o tuhle fotku, zjistily jsme, že náš stativ se s větrem taky úplně nekámoší. Cestoval, padal a i když jsme se hodně snažily ho zatížit, vypadalo to, že odjedeme bez fotky...📸 Najednou za námi zastavilo auto, vyskočil pán a s úsměvem od ucha k uchu křičel do větru, že je dneska jako hodně windy! Pak nám podržel stativ, aby neuletěl, fotka cvakla, on naskočil zpět do auta, zamával a odjel🙋🏽‍♂️.. a nám došlo, že prostě možná cestou do práce zastavil a vylezl ven z auta jen proto, aby dvěma praštěným holkám, který chytají stativ ve větru, pomohl udělat fotku na památku! 🌬 A tak si to nakonec Wellington u nás vyžehlil. Vítr jsme si neoblíbily, ale usoudily jsme, že má možná v tomhle městě svůj vlastní smysl! Třeba slouží jako taková místní stmelovačka...👋🏽 🌬 ... #vanlife #cesinacestach #travelcouple #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #projectvanlife #vanlifers #newzealand #purenewzealand #nzmustdo #destinationnz #coupleslovetravel #globecouples #cestolidi #newzealandvacations #igerscz #newzealandguide #stayandwander #dnescestujem #exploremore #exploretocreate #folk #awakethesoul #adventureawaits #campeveryday #lifeofadventure #travelblogger
STOP BUYING PALO SANTO! Have you considered the ecological impact of burning Palo Santo? I went to an apothecary the other day and was stunned by the large bundles of Palo Santo for sale. It’s something that’s popping up everywhere, at local co-ops and even chain stores. It seems everybody and their momma is burning Palo Santo these days (I’ve been guilty of it myself). But the cultural appropriation of this sacred practice has led to severe deforestation of the tree.  For those who don’t know, Palo Santo is a mystical tree that grows in parts of Central and South America. Known for its medicinal and healing properties, it is traditionally used by Indigenous communities as a sacred practice. Shamans burn Palo Santo sticks to cleanse the air and ward off bad spirits.  In recent years, smudging with Palo Santo has become popular by non-native westerners, and the growing demand for these sweet-smelling sticks has made the Palo Santo tree endangered.  I’ve learned that the only way to get the therapeutic oils from the tree is by letting it die naturally then lie on the forest floor at least 4 years and up to 10. However, the trees are not being harvested properly. To meet the growing demand, they’re being cut down and sold as a commodity, with no regard for the resting period. So if you’re buying it off the shelf, you’re likely not getting the true benefits of the tree.  There are some companies that claim their Palo Santo is sustainably harvested. That may be true, but we have to ask ourselves, is it enough to meet the global demand? And how is it affecting indigenous cultures?  So here’s my two cents, burn mindfully. If you’re not sure how that bundle of Palo Santo was harvested, DON’T BUY IT. Instead source alternatives local to your area, like lavender, juniper, rosemary, basil, etc. And consider creating a practice that is more aligned with your heritage.  I don’t want to take up too much space on the topic of cultural appropriations. So

Hello Mercedes! Hello new project! That’s our new rolling home. Well, the car is not ready yet and still a lot of work. A little side story: this little beauty was waiting four years in a backyard next to Hamburg. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I found the Mercedes 609 in the internet and bought it without seeing it. We were still traveling in Azerbaijan and I didn’t have the chance to check the car in Germany. Well, we believe in the good in each and everyone. Of course - it’s optimistic but it works. ⠀ ⠀ Now it's time to give the car a little bit of love and some dusty roads. Right now I am collecting ideas for the interior. Marcella is an interior designer and she supports me with designs and a helping hand. Any ideas for a van conversions? Tag them in the comments!
Our floor is in 😍 • • We used a plank flooring that has vinyl backing and real hardwood veneer on top! • • We glued it since we will be screwing the bed and the cabinets down through it, we didn’t want any separation. • • Boulder Creek Hickory is the finish, and I must say... it’s beautiful😍😍😍
Maybe you’ve noticed we’ve been MIA... • We took the past two weeks to reset and reflect on this incredible journey— practicing presence and immersing ourselves in the magic of each moment. ✨🙏🏼 • We’ve been exploring the insane Andes Mountains of Peru, laughing with good friends, and enjoying some delicious Italian meals 🤤🤪 • Taking a step back has reinforced how lucky we all are to be living this life together... Thank YOU for sharing your stories with us, for making us laugh, and for letting us be part of your world! • Now let’s explore Peru!! 💛😊 • • • •

Home Sweet Home 🚌❤️ . Das sind die schönsten Augenblicke beim Vanlife: Stellplatz am Meer, Sonne und am besten noch nette Bekanntschaften. . Bei diesen ganzen tollen Instagram Fotos, entsteht für Außenstehende allerdings schnell die Auffassung, dass Vanlife nur aus tollen, sorglosen Augenblicken besteht, was definitiv nicht der Realität entspricht. . Wir haben uns vor unserer Reise nicht viele Gedanken über die Downsides gemacht & sind darum am überlegen, genau darüber mal ein Video zu drehen. #kackebeutel . Hättet ihr an so einem Video Interesse? 🎥 . . . . .  #oskartheexplorer #van #vanlife #projectvanlife #homeonwheels #tinyhome #mercedes #advanture #rollinghome #homeiswhereyouparkit #diy #vanlifecommunity #exploremore #vancouple #vanlifecouples #vanderlust #vanclan #vanconversion #vanlifegermany #vanlifediaries #veganvanlife

Estávamos a 100Km de El Chaltén e já conseguíamos enxergar as agulhas e picos gigantes que tem nesse lugar. Quanto mais nos aproximávamos, mais tirava o nosso fôlego. Quase não conseguimos chegar, de tanto que paravamos na estrada pra tirar foto. Não dá pra explicar o quanto essas montanhas são incríveis, não é à toa a fama que tem entre os amantes do montanhismo, da escalada e do trekking. O Fitz Roy (esse pico maior na foto) estava na nossa listinha há tempos, e agora estamos aqui, bem felizes, vendo de perto essa maravilha da natureza! 💛
Why do I post these photos on instagram? And why do I post all these insane videos on my stories?⁣ ⁣ I think of the times before I started pursuing nature as a place of healing. ⁣ ⁣ This is going to sound EXTREMELY millennial, but I remember scrolling on this app, searching for inspiration in other people’s lifestyles and their words. I wasn’t content with my life and hadn’t found that inner peace. ⁣ ⁣ I remember finding women like @briannamadia who was living out of her van with her dogs and the love she had for her little family. Although I didn’t know her, I was inspired by her courageous words, alternative lifestyle, and intimate poems. ⁣ ⁣ I remember meeting @JennyBruso, from @unlikelyhikers, who reminded me that I too, as a Latinx woman, was not only welcomed into the outdoor industry, but 100% belonged here. ⁣ ⁣ Then there were women, like @noel_russ and @naturechola, who have shown me their passion for the outdoors, and how we, as Latinx women have a voice that needs to be heard. ⁣ ⁣ The inspiration list goes on and on… ⁣ ⁣ So, my Dear reader⁣ ⁣ I want you to know that I think about you as you read the words below a somewhat staged photo. I think about you as I share the small and big adventures on my stories. ⁣ ⁣ Because for a long time, I too was just a reader… I didn’t think I belonged in the woods. I thought it was for the brave, for the fearless, and for the “outdoorsy.” ⁣ ⁣ But that is not the case. ⁣ ⁣ You see, the most wonderful thing about Mother Nature is that she embraces all of us no matter where we come from, what we look like, or what our background is. ⁣ ⁣ She reminds us of our belonging and our truth. ⁣ ⁣ So, I will end this saga with this question: what is the one thing holding you back from taking that leap of faith? And what do you need to see more of in the outdoor industry so that you feel more acceptance? ⁣ ⁣ I look forward to hearing your stories. Cause I love
