Vanlife has been our travel style for almost a decade. We like to travel slow, taking our time to discover places beyond the beaten path and experience the beauty of nature.
The easiest (and cheapest) way we’ve found to do this is to travel in a van. This is especially true since we became full time outdoor adventure bloggers in 2017.
Our first conversion together was a Toyota Lucida which we then drove to Turkey and back. After moving to Canada, we did it again, this time with a Chevrolet Astro and a five-month road trip around British Columbia, Yukon, NWT and Alaska plus numerous other smaller road trips around the country.
We upgraded to a 2005 GMC Savana nicknamed ‘Hanna’ in 2017. We completed a DIY conversion before we starting a 20,000+ kilometre road trip covering Canada’s East coast and a cross continent trip back to British Columbia via the USA.
After a winter in Australia and Thailand, we returned to Canada for a 6.5 month 14,000 kilometre road trip around British Columbia and Alberta.
