Sesil and Mahoma were successful entrepreneurs when they decided to sell their business, buy an old-school van, convert it into a camper, and hit the road. We met Sesil & Mahoma near Malaga during our 2 month trip in Spain. They are a very lovely german couple who decided it's time to enjoy life more [...]
Off-grid motorhome on Sprinter base
One year ago we thought we were going to plant roots in a small town. We had just bought land and started the process of planning our own A-Frame cabin for the property. We were excited and focused, but then suddenly my husband’s job was transferred to another office across the country, and all of [...]
Family of 5 traveling and living in a tiny house
Erika’s DIY Tiny House
It took about two years and three months to build my tiny house, working part-time between a full-time job and through slow, cold, Upstate, NY winters. I grew up on Honeoye Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate, New York. After graduating from high school, I went to RIT to pursue a fine art [...]

What called for a trip to the Romandy this time was the annual Geneva Motor show hosted by Palexpo. It's so easy to make plans and go places when having a home on [...]
Vanlife in Wintertime
Starting Vanlife after living in a spacious apartment is not that easy. It takes time to adjust to a smaller place, less storage and being more aware of water consumption, energy, waste, etc. We made it even more challenging by starting this journey in Wintertime. We were expecting warmer days as March approached but Winter was [...]
We got a hippie bus!
We've been dreaming about living a nomadic life for quite some time, watching YouTube videos and documentaries about people traveling and living full-time in a van, an RV, a sailing boat or even wandering around with a bike and a tent. How amazing one must feel having the freedom to chose what view to have [...]
