We just wrapped up our second full season living and travelling in our camper van and I’m feeling a little sad that it’s over.
We spent the last 5 months exploring beautiful wild places, cities, and towns in Ontario, Quebec and all over the Maritimes (with a stopover in Iceland and Germany, too!) and we met up with all kinds of neat people along the way. I love waking up in our little van nest and digging into a pile of fresh fruit before we drive…pretty much wherever we want to go.
Sometimes living in our van is less than glamorous (we don’t shower as often as we could!) and we do admittedly spend A LOT of time in Walmart parking lots editing videos and getting work done (check out our “Day in the Life” video to see what that’s like). But somehow, the freedom we feel, and the scenery we see on the road makes it all worthwhile.
I was definitely not ready to stop exploring just yet, but when the weather fell below freezing a couple of nights ago and we had frost on the inside of the van, we knew it was time to pack up for the season.
Even though our 2016 road trip is over, we get to relive it again this winter while we edit the 35+ videos we filmed on the road; and we’re planning to share a new video with you every week. The latest video we’ve put together is a full tour of a tiny house we visited at the Tiny House Festival in Lantier, Quebec.
It’s a beautiful tiny home that feels surprisingly spacious even though it’s built on a short 16 foot trailer. We love all the different types of wood the builder (Lumbec) used on the interior, as well as the Japanese-inspired step ladder, the loooooong countertops in the galley kitchen, and the bright loft with reclaimed barn wood on the ceiling. Enjoy the tiny house video tour and stay tuned for more!
Happy Exploring :)
