People all have different intentions for their van builds. Some make them adventure vehicles, some make them mobile offices, some make them minimalistic and a million other styles. We made ours with the intent to live in it for a few years. Everything during the process (cabinets, drawers, etc) grew by a few inches to allow us just that tiny bit of extra storage for an extended stay. It may seem excessive to some, to others maybe not enough, but to us it’s perfect. Daily comfort for a 2 people (one of whom is 6’1) & 2 dogs was the goal... We’re thankful everyday we achieved that goal with our build. There’s plenty of room to not be toppled on one another, a ton of storage for all of our possessions (no, we do not consider ourselves minimalists by any means), plus a big ole couch for friends to come and stay awhile!
Six people cooking, eating laughing, drinking, talking and smoking in one Ford Transit. How can you not love them? That’s what this year’s Chulilla trip was all about. Beautiful people, inside and out. Climbing yes, views yes, hot weather sure, but it’s them who made this trip one of a kind. Love you all! x
Buen viaje Pachorrientos!!
Despues de casi un mes viajando juntos, conviviendo y compartiendo nuestros días, ayer nos despedimos de Loli, Diego y los chicos. Gracias por venir a visitarnos y compartir nuestra manera de vivir-viajar. Disfrutamos mucho de ustedes y los vamos a extrañar!
25,000+ miles, 20 countries, 15 months, 48 National Parks visited, 10 seas & oceans touched, 8 breakdowns, 12 leaks fixed. Countless mountains climbed and hours warmed by campfires. Endless starry skies, bottomless cups of coffee, weeks on end spent in the wild and dozens of meetings with charming locals. And that’s only the half of it. There’s still so much to be explored…
