Exploring Alternatives is a social media project dedicated to living large with less.  We publish weekly YouTube videos about alternative living and regularly update our blog, Facebook, and Instagram pages.

Exploring Alternatives was founded by Mat & Danielle, a couple of minimalist nomads who are exploring long-term travel and road-tripping in their camper van.

Feel free to contact us if you have questions, comments or ideas that you’d like to share!
