The first few weeks of living or travelling in a van can be a bit of a learning curve!

If your only experience of van life so far is through pictures on Instagram you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s one stunning view after the next! If you’re about to hit the road or are thinking about exploring in a camper van you’ll soon discover this isn’t always the case. Finding overnight parking places can be really stressful! Read more

2019 was our first year on the road in our home on wheels. We travelled a lot of miles and stayed in some pretty memorable overnight parking spots. I’ll be honest, we stayed in some rubbish ones too but that’s all part of van life! Whilst Covid-19 has stopped us travelling I thought it would be fun do a mini re-cap on our 2019 travels by sharing our 5 favourite overnight spots. Read more

We’re proof it’s possible though! Read more
