Ann and I have always been fascinated in super long term travel in a Van. We have watched documentaries, researched on the vans, ogle on the various Instagrammers who are living their life in a van. There is even a hashtag #vanlife which is very popular on Instagram.
From the high end Unicat to the ever popular Volkswagen Kombi, Ann and I aspire to travel long term in a van in the near future.
Below are some of our favourite Instagrammers living the life we aspire to have.
Cleo Cohen and partner Mitch Cox are Australians travelling down under in their self made camper van. Mitch is a photographer and his photos of the Australian landscape is always breath taking.
Reunited with the van, and it feels goooood. It’s been up in Sun Valley with the guys at @syncvans who installed a heater for me so I can sleep at the ski slopes this winter. Over the next couple of months I’ll be visiting Utah, California, Oregon and then back to Idaho with no solid plan, and I’m excited to finally get into my groove with this whole van thing. Next mission…coming up with a good van name. 📷@GoPro #hero5 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰 👉🏼 @sprintercampervans
Kirsten from Bearfoot Theory probably have the van that fits our needs. It is a compact 4×4 Mercedes Sprinter van with a bath, kitchen and solar panels for those off grid travels! Head over to her website to see more photos.
Everyone! If you are new to the #vanlife community, let us introduce you to @tinyhousetinyfootprint – They are an awesome example of living small and pursuing your dreams, and they are a huge influence within the community. Can’t wait to hang out with them again! Check out the link in our bio to find out more about the book they’ve created. 📷: @ashtonrayhansen
Jace and Giddi are entrepreneurs who sustain their van lifestyle through their businesses. Jace sells t-shirts and accessories while Giddi designs custom made jewellery to her clients all over the world.They recently welcome a baby to their lives.
Filmmaker Felix Starck and partner singer Mogli went a notch up and converted a former school bus to their home on wheels. They were travelling from Alaska to Argentina with their dog Rudi and you can view all their vlogs on the website. They have recently given away their bus via a lottery to a couple. Let us wait and see what the new couple have in store for the thousand of followers of their bus.
Another photographer living the van life is the sexy Sabrina Horel. She travels with her husband who is a drone pilot and both of them shoots great photos + videos. Sabrina loves to be in front of the camera too as you can see from her Instagram photos. Her van of choice is the ever reliable 1973 Volkswagen Bus.
