You ever have one of "those" Mondays? You know, where you stare morosely at screens wondering why you aren't sat in exactly this place here. This awesome van. My bed and it's many adventure drawers! Having said that, staring at this pic gives me a little boost of that proverbial #mondaymotivation and the prod to remember I'm only feeling glumpy because I'm stuck here working whilst my wife is off having fun adventures. Though actually it seems like she's mostly been rained on if the pictures are anything to go by.... So I'm planning for the next adventure I get to have in this wicked little van and definitely not doing any gear shopping to help me fill the storage space. Honest....

Now it’s official. I bought a new camper project. Not in Germany, not in Europe. I bought an UAZ Buchanka in Kyrgyzstan. My friend Johannes is organizing everything right now in Bishkek. Thanks for all the support my friend. I booked my flight for mid of March for a new big adventure. I am looking forward to visit Mongolia and Russia. With this car I can definitely drive deep into the desert. Thanks lot for sending me messages the last days. My perfect match was an idea of a friend: „Kartoshka“ is a good name for my new camper. . . . #vanconversion #vanlifer #kyrgyzcamperconversion  #vandweller  #theroadexplorer #vanconversion #projectvanlife #vanlifejournal #uaz #vanlifediaries  #vanlifeinspiration  #campervans #vanlifeexplorers #campeveryday  #camping #buchanka   #ourcamplife #vandwellinglife #homeiswhereyouparkit  #homeonwheels #vanliving #myvanlife #vanlife #travel #passportdiary #vanconversion #camper #theoutbound #worldtravel #passionpassport #vanlifediaries #homeiswhereyouparkit #travel #theoutbound #worldtravel #passionpassport #uazbuchanka

In this picture, the truck still has the old front. Meanwhile we installed the headlamps and front grill from a VW LT. ➡️➡️➡️➡️ In Island hatten wir noch die Originale VW-MAN Front. Mittlerweile haben wir die Front vom VW LT verbaut. Welche findet ihr hübscher?

The Moment it Really Becomes Home . I came home after an evening with some friends. ‘Just drop me off at home’ I told my ride. Then I unlocked the door, Bread greeted me in the fresh snow and we went inside. I took off my shoes and jacket at put them away, thinking a cup of tea before bed sounded really nice. I turned the heat up a bit, settling in for the evening… . Now this probably all sounds perfectly normal. But it struck me as the first time I hadn’t had the additional thought of ‘in my tiny RV’ throughout that routine. I just came home, not to a tiny RV…just home. I looked around and even though there’s work to do on it, it’s where I live. Just here, in this space but not defined by any particular place. I just live…here. <3 . . . #whywevanlife #motorhome #camper #vandweller #vanlifers #rvlife #instavanlife #instaadventure #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifeproject #vanlifemovement #vanliving #vandwellinglife #tinyhomeoffice #vanconversions #rvreno #carafancy #homeonwheels #tinyhome #fulltimerv #toyotatruck #toyotarv #home #vanconversions #tinylivingideas #lifeontheroad

Day 71-74 Paint takes so much longer to dry in the Winter LOL. Kitchen cupboards are all finished. Finally fitted the doors today with hidden hinges. They need handles but we haven't decided on the handles yet as we were wondering what the lightest option will be short of drilling a hole for a finger 😂.

And it begins... . . . I’ve had the Ambo back in SD for about a month now. I’ve spent countless hours researching and plotting the entire layout. Of course it keeps changing. I have two weeks to complete the build and be living in this full time. I will be posting updates regularly. I’m constantly looking for innovative ways to make this rig functional, comfortable, and as unique as possible. Feel free to share ideas that would make this the ultimate adventure rig. . . . #vanlife #vanlifer #livinginavan #lifeontheroad #vanlifeconnections #notasprinter #vandweller #campervan #powerstroke #vanlifecommunity #campervandweller #vanlifegathering #homeonwheels #projectvanlife #vanlifeideas #travelvlog #vanlifeexplorers #vanliving #homeiswhereyouparkit #livingontheroad #vanlifeadventures #4x4diesels #vanlifeculture #tinyhomeonwheels #4x4van #overlander #vanconversion #overlandbound #overlandjournal

We’ve had a lot of questions on our van build and costs, SO we thought why not do a quick video to answer them! (Link is in our bio ☺️) . . We’re paying it forward to anyone thinking of this lifestyle and is needing some practical details 🙂 we had not a clue in the world what we were doing when we got into this build, so hopefully this will be of help to some of y’all!

After a month of everything I own breaking 😝, I’m excited that both my vehicles are finally functioning properly again. I’ve been loving having my burnt up car as my daily driver, but my Van is ready for a super fun adventure! Maybe a Colorado expedition is in order! Met a new friend there that has more adventures then even me, so maybe I can go see what’s hiding in the mountains of Colorado soon. 😜 #adventuretime #adventure #vanlife #vandwelling #vandweller #vandwellers #vandwellinglife #transgenderisbeautiful

#GnomadQuestions : "How do you receive #mail one the road?" - A very common question we receive! - As far as our mailing address, we used John's parents’ address when we first hit the road. Now we use a mail forwarding service. But how do we actually get things sent to us out on the road? - Most of the time we ship our mail and packages General Delivery to a US Post Office. If you wish to do this, you would have your mail addressed the following way: - YOUR NAME General Delivery City, State Zip Code - 9999 (The 9999 is very important. It's the code that lets USPS know the mail is to be general delivery.) - Double check that the USPS Office accepts general delivery first and ask how long they hold the mail (some hold for 30 days, some for only 5). If you are having a package sent General Delivery, it NEEDS to be shipped USPS. FedEx and UPS will not deliver to post offices. - What about Amazon items? - Amazon lockers are starting to pop up in many places, which is super convenient! If there is not an Amazon locker nearby, you can send these general delivery to the post office too, but you need to be on the ball about how you do so. - When you order something on Amazon, you can’t pick the shipping method, and even if you call and ask there's no guarantee that they'll ship via USPS. - But, there is a way to trick Amazon’s shipping algorithms and force them to send any General Delivery package via USPS. How do you do it? Simply add a blank PO Box entry to the address. - Here’s how to format General Delivery addresses for Amazon packages: - Your Name General Delivery PO Box Town, State Zip-9999 - The blank PO Box forces their system to ship via USPS. We’ve tried everything, and this is the only way that’s worked consistently for us. - There are quite a few other ways that we use to receive mail and packages on the road - so we decided to write an elaborate blog post about it! Head to the link in our bio to read more about the ins and outs of getting mail on the road! - How do you get your mail when traveling? Let us know! We're always looking for new and improved ways to do things! - PS - Disregard the mess -- we were transporting bales of hay! 😅

Had a few comments on my channel about me hanging around Chamonix... Are you alright?😅 We both arrived here with no money so obviously we were going to have to find work. Travelling costs money... It can be as little or as much as you want depending on how you like to do it but ultimately, travel costs. I'd say this has been the perfect place to collect ourselves and find our feet. A lots changed since we rolled up to the lake in November but it's all positive and I can't wait to see what the future brings. We will be making a stop in England in the next few weeks to sort some bits out and drop off the talbot, then the next part of the adventure begins! It's going to be a good summer 😉👍🏻

Finally I have strength and motivation to make and post new pictures! 🚌 I’ve been sick for almost three weeks and had fever for 10 days straight! Can’t say it was very nice. The older you get the harder it is to be sick (seems like). 😂 It also took a couple of days to start walking and doing stuff without feeling all dizzy and week all the time. Björn was sick for at least a week too, but hopefully now we are done with all that and can get back to preparing our bus again... We lost a couple of weeks, but there’s nothing to do about it. It is what it is. 🤗 . . . . . . #mercedes508 #outdoorliving #vanlifeeurope #vanlifestyle #campervan #exploremore #mb508 #camperlife #fog #mercedes508d #vanlifestyle #vanlifesweden #vandwelling #vandweller #vandwellers #camperrenovation #sunrise #campervanconversion #campervanlife #beelzebus #homeonwheels #vanliving #offgridliving #outboundliving #vanlifeconversions #gotland #projectvanlife #vanlife

The most memorable places are the one that ask the most of you. ❄ Gorge du Verdon. Defenetly one of the best places we have been to, yet one of the hardest. This night it reached -6. Hard for a van without a heater. Everything was frozen, together with us. In the end it was worth it. Walking along the gorge and frozen waterfalls in the morning made us more or less forget the cold. ☃️ Search for the things that pushes your boundaries. Dive in the adventure. It's all worth it in the end. . . #vanlife #vanlifers #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #getoutside #welivetoexplore #vanconversion #gorgesduverdon #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanlifediaries #projectvanlife #vanlifeeurope #homeonwheels #wanderlust #volkswagen #landscape #camper #roadtrip #vanlifecamper #vanlifedistrict #thisismyeurope #vankitchen #vandweller #couplevanlife #vangirl #travel #vanlifeeurope #nomad #roamers #campvibes #nature

Change of usual mood....today I am surrendering to feeling rubbish because Effy is poorly and my life doesn’t have its normal easy going vibe. I’m feeling shit; yesterday Effy broke, I’m not sure to what degreee yet, but I think quite spectacularly. So currently she is parked up feeling sad and I am about to go to work, feeling sad and apprehensive. She has an appointment with the van hospital later to hopefully find out what is wrong with her. But until then, she is out of action and stranded where she died. She is still capable of being my living space but depending on how broken she is, that could soon become an issue too.....I have neglected to refill my gas, which I use for cooking and heating for some time, obviously because I assumed I would be able to drive and get more at any time. And while it may be slightly warmer than usual for February here, it is still not warm enough to cope without heating. So currently I feel a little bit in limbo; Yes it’s early days and it could turn out to be nothing serious. But when the last 18 months of my life have revolved around this van, being my home, my transport and ticket to freedom. Now I’m feeling trapped. Valley fever has kicked in instantly and now I’m just longing to be able to hop in the van and drive away. Looking back at pictures and dreaming of days like this when it was just me and Effy trundling our way through Norway, living our dream. Everyone pray for her please? #vanlife #van #vanlifediaries #vanlifeeurope #vanlifedreams #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifeideas #vanlifers #vanlifemovement #projectvanlife #vanlifer #vandwelling #vandweller #vanconversion #campervan #camper #camperconversion #lifeontheroad #homeonwheels #tinyhouse #offgridliving #campervanlife #selfbuild #camperlife #advanture #broken #vancrush #vangirls #vandwellinglife

Our home made fibreglass panels seem to have worked a treat and our lorry is starting to look more like a motorhome. We bought the wheel arch pieces and glued them in to the homemade panel because our fibreglassing skills (learnt on YouTube) aren’t that great! . . . . . . #campervanconversion #build #vanlife #vanlifediaries #selfbuild #design #tinyhome #nomads #adventure #travel #camper #home #love #livelife #beautiful #homeiswhereyouparkit #photography #vancrush #homeonwheels #vanlifemagazine #vanconversion #vandweller #vanlifemovement #homeonwheels #vanlifecamper #camper

Whew. I've been working on winterizing my van this week. As always, each step consumes waaaay more time than expected. The frustrating part is losing hours of the day to work because it gets too cold so soon. The SATISFYING part (aside from my own strange brand of fun) is IT'S WORKING. Tonight --halfway through the process of my design-- was the first time I was able to remain in the van until I simply became too tired to work more. When I exited, I saw it had been snowing while I was in there, and I hadn't even realized! #progress #YES Photo: my cold weather window inserts are comprised of one layer of black sheet on one layer of 1/2-inch foam rubber (yoga mats from Ross). [Disregard the painting canvases temporarily securing it in the photo.] Not pictured: I then added one layer of regular reflective auto window shades, then my regular white fleece curtains clipped into place. I considered a velcro situation but decided against having the adhesive on my windows and extra work because this is all adequate anyway. Besides, once I'm in a warmer setting, I'll be stripping and stowing everything, right? Super happy with the discoveries. SO close! In addition to the windows, I've swapped out my furniture, bedding, and wardrobe for the winter setup. So much work! . . . #vanlife #homeiswhereyouparkit #vandwelling #vandweller #conversionvan #campervan #offgrid #vanlifediaries #chevyastro #chevyastrovan #chevrolet #chevroletastro #Airstream #myvanmychoice #daaammnnjourney #vanconversion #vanconversions #vancon #camper

portable prose.. porta-prose if you will.. • there’s is nothing more refreshing than opening a porto door into a fresh breeze after a hot poop sesh. nothing. • the obscenities and graphic content in some portajohns should be outlawed. • never drop your phone in a porto.. ten out of ten would never ever recommend. • the most harmless yet unsettling thing ive found written on a porto wall was “salsa crabs.” • finding a porto with ample toilet paper and adequate hand sanitizer is more than a slice of heaven to me. • blue doo doo. • i want an actual portable toilet. that would make my life so much easier. • i’ve self-diagnosed myself with porto traumatic stress disorder. • there’s handicap portapotties larger than where i sleep. • thanks for listening to my thoughts while i’m on the mobile throne. . . . #porto #portapotty #story #storytime #short #snippet #shortstory #blue #bluemangroup #azul #lago #lake #water #agua #photography #photooftheday #prose #pro #poo #vanlife #vans #vandweller #travel #adventure #advanture #vantastic
