There are so many reasons why people choose this lifestyle.
Some do this part time. Others sell off all their belongings & commit to van life full time (This is us !)
Vanlife is the process of taking control of your life, it’s about making the statement that you won’t miss out anymore.
It’s about leaning into your fear of the unknown in order to pursue what makes you feel alive.
It’s about meeting strangers from all over the world & creating friendships you would not have had otherwise.
It is about the commitment to create the most fulfilling life you can for yourself.
It’s about not settling for all the “shoulds” that society is pushing upon us.
It’s about focusing on what’s meaningful in your life & shedding what isn’t.
But however you go about it, living in a van is challenging, exciting & rewarding.
It’s a real roller coaster of emotions & boring is definitely not one of them.
