We are Roman & Ioana – two explorers thirsty for discovering the world. Spending time outdoors, discovering new places and meeting interesting people always makes us happy. We embraced the idea of minimalism and exploring alternative living choices.
In 2017 we got ourselves a hippie bus and joined the vanlife movement which made so much sense for us. LENI (that’s how we named it) is a VW LT35 which stole our hearts from the very first moment we saw it. After restoring it into a fully off-grid motorhome, we adventured on a one year trip around Europe, experiencing traveling and living full-time in a van. The trip had an epic end with us getting married and returning to Switzerland (where we met) to keep working on our dreams.
Leni is now our weekend getaway, taking us to beautiful places in the Swiss Alps.
We do experience other ways of living and traveling like motorbikes, bicycles, SUVs, tiny houses on wheels. Basically, anything that can move from a place to another. We are currently building our first tiny house and we cannot wait to move in.
If our stories inspire you and bring you joy, we are more than happy to keep you around. There are more adventures and exciting projects coming to life that we want to share with you.
