‘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. As cheesy as it is the adventure is in the journey & life is one big rollercoaster of an adventure.
‘Home is where I park it’
A dream or a nightmare is hard to tell at some points but 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.
The social conformities & pressures of what is deemed to be the ‘norm’ are 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 before you know it. I treasure every single moment and believe you should live each like it is your last.
‘Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.’
It doesn’t need to be a designer or the latest trend item. Fashion is clothes and style is how you wear them. 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.
