Lately we’ve been living life in the slow lane. When we first started van life we wanted to slow down and enjoy living in a van to see nature living off grid and spend more time doing the things we love. This week we’re sharing a day in the life living in the slow lane at an off grid desert camp. Although we’ve been stationary longer than normal, after months of van building and the need to be still it feels really good to slow down and enjoy our van home entirely… we hope through this van life vlog you get a taste of what our daily/ morning routine is like 🙂

Our Journey! How did we get here?
We started living in our van full time in winter of February 2019. We drove across Canada spent 8 months on Vancouver Island working, living and traveling in our van. We then started our dream of overlanding Canada to Argentina. We fell in love with full time travel and van life as we carried on through Canada, USA, Mexico, & Guatemala. However, we couldn’t keep going due to the travel limitations. Now we are exploring Canada and cannot wait to show you our beautiful country!

Make sure you join us as we continue to create van life vlogs of our alternative life style. We hope you’ve enjoyed our previous travel vlogs & continue to come along on this cross Canada road trip!
