Summer Is Here

Well its official, we survived a Norwegian winter! Spring has passed and summer is finally here! Spring time, here in Norway, brought with it the sunshine, but the days were still fresh, sitting on an average of around 8-10 degrees here in Lofoten. We were starting to question whether we would ever feel warm enough … Continue reading Summer Is Here

Life Continues Into 2021…

Our Norwegian Christmas was everything we had hoped for and more. We filled our bodies with all the traditional Norwegian Christmas food and kept warm sipping on homemade glögg wine by the campfire, Lockie had built for us and the pork ribbe was cooking away on the BBQ. Lockie was particularly impressed with himself, ticking … Continue reading Life Continues Into 2021…

Vanlife Continues In Norway

A few weeks have passed since we finished up our quarantine period here on arrival in Norway. The 10 days flew by as we enjoyed some down time-relaxing on a couch never felt so good! I also joined the quarantine baking club, spending the time making anything and everything I could, taking full advantage of … Continue reading Vanlife Continues In Norway

Travel During Lockdowns

Vanlife and Worklife

For many vanlifers, they live a life of complete wanderlust and freedom. They have sold off their assets and have the plan of living full-time in their van for a very long time, no mortgages, loans or set monthly bills. Some living off there savings and have kissed work life goodbye with no plans of … Continue reading Vanlife and Worklife

Vanlife is a real test for any relationship. You spend a lot of time together, in a very small space. On top of that, you have zero privacy, so if you are dreaming of vanlife, be mindful of this. Lockie and I literally cook, eat, sleep, use the bathroom and shower in the same vicinity … Continue reading The Vanlife Test

Making The Most Of Life

Since leaving Austria, this has been our first proper vanlife experience.

Is Vanlife for you?

Are you questioning if vanlife is for you??? Before starting our vanlife adventure, there were many questions I asked myself. I pondered on them heavily, for days, weeks and months, before making the final leap. Lockie was set on the idea and had been for some time.
