Since our trip to Australia where we stayed in a little campervan for a few days I’ve become obsessed with the idea of living out of a van. Not forever – I don’t think I could handle that – but for a while whilst I’m travelling somewhere.

I’ve started following loads of Vanlifers on instagram, and watching endless YouTube videos about how to convert a van into a tiny home. Basically I’m going to make it happen. I swear these instagram accounts will have you dreaming of doing the same for a little while.

I know vanlife wouldn’t be all pretty instagram pictures (I mean how’d you deal with having to find a toilet all the time?!) but let’s for a moment pretend it is….

The Rolling Home

In the Spring of 2010 these two bought a sorry looking Volkswagen T4 van. With a very small budget and a lot of imagination they slowly created our dream home. Over the past 6 years we have travelled more than 80000 miles across Europe in The Rolling Home.

This account shows off the best of #Vanlife and is great for some inspiration!


Most days we cook all our meals but some days we eat pizza in bed.

These two travel around with their dog in their stylish campervan (and sometimes eat their pizza in bed).

The organization station, AKA the Garage. It’s pretty amazing how much you can fit under there. 📷 @elimeirkaplan

I’ve been following Valerie for a while now and she’s recently bought a Van which she’s planning to travel in for the next 3 years!

Anymore Vanlifers I should follow? Would you consider living in a van?
