️ WHAT DO YOU DO IN PARADISE ️ Can you guess? 🤔
Well you probably think we would just be relaxing on the beach, soaking in the sun, maybe take a icecold swim?
Eh... Nope! That’s not what we did! This beach seemed like the perfect place to take everyt

DRIVING TO PARADISE
We heard of an amazing paradise like beach in the South of Evia (Thanks @onsbusavontuur ) so just we had to check it out!
The island Evia looks quite small on the map but if you are crossing it, it takes a lot of time! There ar
ᗷᗩᗰ! NEW FLOORS ALERT
It really feels like home with these beautiful wood floors from @homedepot . It’s only $50 a box for beautiful, water proof snap together floors. We used two boxes to do the main living part of Big Doloris

We’ve hit that point. I’m anxious, I don’t understand what the next steps are, I feel like I have more questions than answers. It’s daunting. It’s frustrating. It doesn’t feel new and exciting anymore. It feels overwhelming and confusing. At times l
Deuxième dent perdue pour ce petit mignon. La première dans la cour d'école il y a quelques semaines et celle-là sur la plage en Floride cet après-midi! Il est si fier, c'est beau, je l'aime! .
Our solar panels are close to going up! We have four 100 watt Renogee Eclipse panels. We like the flexibility of having multiple smaller panels. It will be easy to add or reduce the total wattage in the array. It also made shipping easier & cheaper!
Happy Pancake Day! ️
Who else is celebrating Shrove Tuesday / Pancake Day today? We are having a chill-out van day where we go nowhere, so we spent suitably long in bed and had brunch-fast instead. Pancakes of course! This day isn’t so special for
AUSTRALIA ROAD TRIP! 🇦🇺 ️
When we were traveling and living in our 4WD in Western Australia our life was sometime really miserable!
We had many days of rain and winds, we ate nutella with banana for breakfast, sometimes we even had instant noodle
It wouldn’t be worthy of calling it our home without a place for Hunter’s books. He asks to read books countless times a day, “read please, read please” - can’t say no to that! He chose all his books he wanted to bring in the van and every time we co
Having a puppy in the shop has its challenges - pee breaks seemingly every minute, zoomies through glue, eating plywood scraps and sawdust, stealing rolls of tape. But it also comes with kisses, and snuggles, and tail wags, and sweet puppy breaks An
The Alsace 🥰
I truly fell in love with this region of France and am already dreaming of going back and exploring more. It’s a countryside dotted with real life fairytale towns, made from higgeldy-piggeldy timbers and painted in rainbow shades
We found a Rainbow Playground
Driving to our park up we realised it was practically in the centre of a busy city. But as we drove to the large concrete car park we passed a huge playground which seemed to have rainbows everywhere.
We arrived quite
CUDDLE A 2500 YEAR OLD TREE
I love trees. Especially the very old ones ️. When they start to look like a wise old man (or woman!) who has lots of stories and tales to tell. Today we met such a tree! 2500 years old. Say What? Amazing, right? It was
Well I couldn’t pass up this opportunity for a #natureyogi shot at the top of Cheddar Gorge now could I?! Look at that view! ️
We have had such a lovely half term. The perfect mix of duvet days and house-bound slowness v day trips and van adventures.
Nothing but smiles when your wife makes a smoothie bowl that is better than all the ones in Bali combined (made with all the love makes a difference). Topped with homemade plum jam - can you tell she’s loving having her kitchen back? Smoothies in th

A lot transpired the past month. We swam through enormous emotion, travelled many miles, dissected dutifully the possible roads we as a family could take (metaphorically speaking)... round and around we went till we spun so far only to come back to a
This is such a great little book and would make a fantastic low waste gift for a child. This week I pruned our buddleia bush and kept the toughest branches for these activities. This is by @joscofe and @fionadanks. It is filled with genuinely good an

Abends soll es stark gewittern. Deswegen suchen wir ganz lange nach einem sicher erscheinenden Stellplatz. Letztendlich fällt die Wahl auf einen Platz über einem Stausee. Tagsüber erklimmen wir den Berg mit einer nicht sehr vertra

We aren't living your average van life right now and that isn't going to change anytime soon. We ARE living in our van full time, but for now we're parked up on our land in Portugal.

Rosie made a video! She filmed and edited it all herself, learning how to use Vegas Pro for the first time ever! She is excitedly watching the views go up so if you have 5 minutes, please do give it a watch Link is in our bio.
JUST A NORMAL VANLIFE DAY
When it rains ️ we go for a drive or we stay in and slow down. No need to get out of bed early, right? The kids played with their Lego and clay all day and Alex did some work. It was actually quite peaceful in Jacky!
Our first Turkish coffee
There was a lovely café nearby where we enjoyed our first Turkish coffee, cake and some kind of sweet liqueur possibly? The lady running it was lovely and seemed to quite like Agnes (especially with her bright hair), as do m
Meeting the neighbours
Walking Roy we met a very inquisitive and friendly family of goats, they were very interested in Roy and he was mostly well behaved with them. At one point Roy was jumping up his back legs against a wall and every time he did
Bernie, the Beast and fresh mountain air - all of which we sorely miss right now.

*Storage* We found we had lots of storage space when using the van but wanted the spaces more organised/easily accessible. Shoes - So the @thule shoe organiser is great for us. It easily holds Sam’s boats Toiletry net bags. We use these for shopping
We are busy getting all the final touches for the van ready so you can bet these boys are snacking like no tomorrow! Banana pancakes are the most versatile snack there is. 3 ingredients and topped with anything you desire. Peanut butter, homemade plu
Betsy ️ ... the van that started it all!
Over 10 years ago, before adulting, when it was just us and the hound we spent our time pootling about in Betsy - going to festivals and spending long summers with friends in Croyde.

DAY 7: The start of framing cabinets.
Winter always slows our builds down, did the same with @coloregontinyhome.
We finally put in another day on the build and started to get the cabinets and counter in. We are re-using some old materials from a pr
A beautiful first park up After driving down a questionable ‘track’ to get to our park-up we were met with beautiful views of the sea.
After exploring the area a bit we settled in for the night only to see the dreaded red and blue flashing lights
A challenging first day in Turkey... Firstly this is the most military presence we’ve seen at a border, people with huge machine guns all over the place

We had a few people ask about our sleeping arrangements. So this is Alfie’s bed, doubling up as our sofa/seating/dining area in the daytime. We ordered foam to size from Efoam online and Sam’s lovely Auntie covered it for us. Alfie said it’s really c
Starting to order bits, that whilst we were away in Cornwall we realised we wanted/needed. Starting with wind deflectors as we don’t have AC. Driving along the M5 being blasted in the ears is not fun #vwcrafter#vanbuild#ukfamilyvanbuild#vanbuild
Shiney new pedal day . . . So indecisive, I love riding clipped in on my road bike, but the though terrifies me on the mtb. But, I've been swatting up on the benefits of riding clips on trails . .

What are you eating first?
There are many things that bring us joy but fruit shopping has to be one of our favourite things to do. Finding beautiful fresh produce, looking at all the colours nature produces and then laying it all out and staring in a
It’s time to make this van a home! We are trying to maximize all the wall space we can for storing items. Storage is so important and thinking about how things will move around when we are driving is always on the forefront of our minds. It’s all sta
Non so a cosa sto pensando, lassù.
Sono spensierata come può esserlo una bambina di 8/9 anni? Probabilmente si.
Sono in vacanza con mia mamma e le mie sorelle, che sono tutto il mio mondo.
Siamo in viaggio, accampate da qualche parte, probabilmente
Last weekend’s progress had us really feeling like we are getting somewhere! Bed frame was installed, two side panels made, and insulation mostly wrapped up. We’re looking forward to another productive week in the shop finishing up wall panels and st
