The longer we travel, the less we feel the need to take photos of everything. Especially, of ourselves. Especially, when you didn’t have a shower before. 🙈 I had one. And the van too, which actually nearly never happens, but we came from the coast so better to get all the salt off. Thanks for the nice photo, Karola!
Sneak peak of the photoshoot I did for the next @volksamerica_magazine that was built by @dirtyridesinc and owned by David Snapp. The teal... The interior... So much to love about this 66 Westfalia! Can't wait to share the rest!!
10 more weeks until we leave on our first road trip in the bus 🚌
We don’t really have as much money saved up as we would have liked, but it’s enough to leave and enjoy our trip. Should we have saved up more money before buying a bus? Probably. Should we have taken more time to convert the bus, allowing us more time to pay off our debt. Most likely. But the truth is, the timing will never be just right. There will always be something that doesn’t make it the “perfect” time to do something. I’m so happy we only sat on this idea for 2 weeks instead of 2 years, because we chose to start the life that we wanted to live now, Instead of putting it off and maybe losing the opportunity all together.
If there’s anything you want to do in life, whether is buying a bus or changing careers or something else, don’t wait for a better day or more money or a better X, Y and Z, because there will always be a reason to put your goals or dreams on hold for another day. And that’s definitely something you shouldn’t put on hold. 💫
"Our adjustment to van life really hasn’t been too bad. We don’t have it all down just yet, but with each day comes new lessons. It’s crazy the things we have to think about now that we hadn’t before, such as parking on even ground, or keeping an eye on our battery levels. Some days we’re killin’ the game and some days we forget to empty our gray water tank and it backs up into our shower 🤷♀️. This lifestyle 100% takes some getting used to (especially since there’s 3 of us) but we’re adaptable beings and believe change is necessary to help us grow. Even though it could be scary at times try to remember not all positive change feels positive in the beginning. The secret to change is to not fight it. How do you feel about change? Do you fear it? Fight it? or embrace it?⠀
Hope something unexpectedly awesome happens to each one of you this week! 🖤"⠀
