"If you are thinking about giving this a go our advice would be to not think about it for years and don't think it's not possible because it is. Make the decision, make the step forward and just do it. Don't think about it too much, JUST DO IT"

"I left home in a hurry after waking up one morning and feeling an overwhelming urge to be on the road. I literally only had $500 in my account, I had no job lined up and no real plan. I just knew so deeply this was my path and trusted that everything would unfold as it should... and it has".
Meet Ash from Ash Wanders on Instagram.
I came across Ash on Instagram and she has a really calming, positive and kind vibe. Ash is travelling solo across Australia and took a big jump into van life with $500 in her bank account, no job lined up and no real plan.
Ash is on a great adventure and we cannot wait for you to hear this episode!

"Age doesn't matter when you're on the road. You meet people much older and much younger but you all have the common interest of living the simple life"

"It really changed our vision of life, just imagine you are travelling in your house on wheels, you can choose your daily view everyday, you get to be close to nature, you wake up with the sun. Van life is about freedom... after you take a bite of it you cannot stop"
Meet Mele and Max from Elliot Jones The Van.
Mele & Max are from France and arrived in Australia two years ago to start their van life adventure. They self-built their van in the Bunnings carpark (until they got kicked out).... seriously, they were working on the van during the day then piling everything inside and sleeping in the Bunnings carpark at night. That is DEDICATION.
They are total gems and absolute sweet-hearts and we can't wait for you to hear their story.

THIS IS ONE BADASS VAN, seriously this thing is like a tonka truck and I am girl crushin' over this adventure machine.

"Money is replaceable you can make it back, but time and experiences you've got to gobble those up and take them when you can. Living the simpler life for us has given us a happier life, we are fulfilled - we have everything we need"
Meet Karstan, Max and their 11 month old baby girl Zuri
You may recognise this couple as Karstan and Max were previously on the TV show The Block.
They have a zest for life and are an adventure seeking family currently travelling in a kombi in outback Queensland, Australia.
They bought their first Kombi in 2009, did a lap around Australia and were absolutely hooked.
True to their word that becoming parents wouldn't change a thing, they are still on the road living their best lives.
They are total sweet-hearts, fam goals and I know you will fall in love with their story.
"We have less stuff, less things to worry about, more time to focus on what really matters, more time with our little one, plus get to experience getting out and just seeing our beautiful bloody country. Australia is amazing and we can't stress enough just how important it is to get outside and see your own country"
