Seeking a life of adventure and freedom from living in a system of high rent prices, van life was calling my name. Once I’d decided it was time to make it a reality, it turned out to be one of the greatest decisions I ever made. After about 6 months of turning it into a cozy home, my van was ready to go and I couldn’t have imagined how blissful it would be.
The feeling of total freedom and an always open-road, plus knowing I have everything I ever needed right here with me felt like a total dream. Sure there were a few sacrifices (mostly letting go of the everyday “conveniences” - shower, bathroom etc.), but getting creative with those was SO worth trade for the ability to live so freely. Road trips into the mountains and festival adventures became even more magical (how often do you get to wake up in your own cozy bed, take a peek out the window and see a beautiful waterfall right in front of you?!)
One of my fondest memories was spending time surfing in Tofino. Warming up with a blanket and some hot tea after an epic morning catching waves, I had this moment of realization and appreciation that, anywhere I decided I want to live - I could. And because I had everything I ever needed with me - it was as easy as just changing my mindset. “Ok, I love it here - I’m gonna live here now”. And so it was… as simple as that.
