The concept of van life has been there throughout our relationship. Indeed, Jean Robert was actually living in a van when we met! 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 BC, Yukon, NWT and Alaska. Now planning for our next big adventure on the road with our new GMC Savana, it looks like our love of the van life is here to stay!
We are currently travelling in our DIY converted GMC Savana cargo van. For a tour and cost breakdown, check out this article above. For detailed construction diaries for the build, click the links below. Also featured on this page is our last van conversion, plus road trip diaries from our five month journey around Western Canada as well as van life reflections.
