10 Photos from My First 5 Months of #Vanlife

While we all dream of more money and more holidays, freedom seems to be the underlying factor which we truly seek.

By: Jess Bonde + Save to a List

With little money, but 7 months of adventure in front of us, we decided we would give Vanlife a go in an attempt to escape the pressures of ‘The Real World’. Unbeknown to us, the freedom gained from squeezing two adult sized humans into a self-converted rustic adventure mobile was astronomical. Our budget was tight, the planned route was enormous, and the adventure possibilities were endless. 

Here are 10 Photos which depict our first 5 months from the road. 

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on. Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations. Please explore responsibly!

Do you love the outdoors?

Yep, us too. That's why we send you the best local adventures, stories, and expert advice, right to your inbox.
