Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!
Van nerd, obsessed with being out there in higher grounds (mountain biking and skiing). I had a normal life until I was old enough to make my own decisions. My mechanical engineering studies were interrupted by 3 years of travels (Europe, South-East Asia, Middle-East, Africa). Then I graduated, got a job, a house, and got rid of all of that to build a van and hit the road. The rest is history.
Always ready for a ride, Isabelle is easy to spot with her permanent and contagious smile. She’s passionate about the outdoor, food and solving problems. In her past life she travelled to Africa (cooperation project), Costa-Rica and Europe (to study abroad). She graduated as an electrical engineer, she’s in charge of the coding here on FarOutRide and finding the next cool adventure!
We started faroutride.com to document and share our camper van conversion progress, and eventually share our Vanlife Tales from The Road. But what started as a fun little side project turned into something bigger than we ever imagined. Simple van build updates turned into extensive how-to’s and guides… Years later we keep on updating and creating new content and help the Van Life community, and we don’t take this lightly.
Our goal is to publish in-depth, yet comprehensive, fact-based guides and how-to’s about anything related to DIY camper van conversion. From early planning (build your knowledge) to hands-on tasks (build your van), we’ve got something for everyone!
With background in mechanical and electrical engineering, a creative mindset and full-time Vanlife in our self-built camper van since 2017, it’s fair to say both of us are in a pretty good position to help!
We’ve got a lot to say, so we created a separate page documenting our story.
