Van Life – the adventure of your life

Van life gives you the wonderful chance to explore the world, with your mobile home, going almost anywhere you want.  Feel the freedom of travelling somewhere new each day.  Why not explore the historic cities of Europe, the parks of the USA, or the beaches of Australia.  Do it all in your own vehicle at minimal cost.

Campervan conversions have got easier and more accessible with the great array of parts available today.  With the right vehicle you can explore endless places, camping at beaches and parks.  You can spend the days surfing, cycling, cooking, walking and finding your favourite things to pass the days.

If you take a break from work, or even abandon your old life, you can explore the van life for years.  If you can find some passive income or remote work then you can extend your vanlife experience indefinitely.

Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand are great places to visit with a van exploring the wonderful coast lines and national parks.

Occasionally visiting campsites means you can refresh yourselves and the resources in your van.  Laundry, showers, fresh water top up and grey water drop off can be done one a week or so to add a little bit of luxury to the simple and rewarding van life.  Don’t forgot to top up your groceries as well.

Full time travel takes a bit more consideration but can be done.  Many people explore the USA and Europe endlessly moving around to find the best weather for them in each season.  Costs can be kept to a minimum by making good choices about campsites and free camping.

Having a well equipped vehicle with everything you need makes a big difference in this respect.  Good planning when converting your own vehicle can ensure that you have everything you need to travel for a long time comfortably.
