We did it!

The van is built, we sold our house, quit our jobs, and we’re somewhere between the Atlantic and Pacific ocean. It feels UNREAL!!

 

As our travels progress, we learn and we get better at living a “normal” life in our van.

 

Below are some guides and how-to’s, learnt the hard way, to help make most of the vanlife.
Hope that helps!
