‘To travel is to live.’
Could that be any more true? Each day I yearn for another adventure, after all the world is a pretty big place & I intend to see as much of it as I can.
When you realise life is short your experiences become richer, take pleasure in the little things. Not the luxuries but the necessities of what makes a place, a culture and a person. The adventure is in the journey & life is one big rollercoaster of an adventure.
‘Travel can be a lifestyle.’
A dream or a nightmare. The initial knot of fearing the unknown was unwound by the exhilaration of life on the road. The realisation of what matters most didn’t include the bricked walls that surround me. If anything they can feel like a prison.
The social conformities & pressures of what is deemed to be the ‘norm’ challenged each day when you live the van life. It’s not always glamorous but the experiences cannot be put into words.
‘Life is too important to be taken seriously.’
It’ll pass you by with a blink of an eye and before you know it your glory days are over. I treasure every single moment and believe you should live each like it is your last.
That doesn’t mean you have to be a fake. Life is a rollercoaster of emotions and being open and honest about it means you’re basically not a robot or an insta whore.
‘Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.’
It doesn’t need to be designer or the latest trend item. Fashion is the clothes and style is how you wear it. Long gone are my days of buying a new outfit for every event.
I can remember all my favourite moments by what I wore. To me clothes hold the key to unlocking those memories.
‘Home is where the heart is.’
Built brick by brick and cemented together. The four walls you call your own where you hide from the world. Your own haven.
Following the journey of a first time buyer and this story isn’t a fairytale. Twists and turns with nothing ever running smoothly with minimal budget and a crumbling 100 year old house.
Still, it is all ours and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
Want to see where we have been? Well you lucky buggers you, I have put together this helpful little map so you can see each stop off we’ve made. I am hoping to do reviews and experience blogs for pretty much all the stops we make (please don’t hold me to that one) and so get exploring the site and enjoy reading all about our adventures, you wont regret it.
