Our Transition from Apartment Life to Van Life

If you haven’t read all of our other blog posts already (it’s okay, we understand), we talk about what it was like living in our van for the first month, and for the first year.

7 Of The Best Books For Digital Nomads

Why We’re Selling Our Van & Converting Another One

We learned a lot after living in our van for a couple years. In fact, we have two blog posts about what we’ve learned along the way in the first month of van life and the first year of van life if you want to check those out. Recently, we sold our first sprinter van that we spent 5 months converting in 2016. Of course, everyone wanted to know the exact reasons why we wanted to sell it and what we are going to do in our new conversion… and don’t worry, we will be sharing all the details over the next couple weeks.
