Just before we left for Canada we headed South to Dorest for a week long road trip along the coast, with an added Wales stopover, with a of couple friends who also have a van. This would be Mango's first real road trip and we were super excited to give her a test. We didn't … Continue reading Our first trip in the Van: Dorset Coast Road Trip
I've never been on good terms with my body. It's always been something I struggled with; always wanting smaller legs, a flatter stomach, less curves, shorter, skinnier, etc etc etc. Not to mention it's something that other people always felt they had the right to comment negatively on; "too fat", "too curvy", "too tall", too … Continue reading Friday Favourites: Bump Photos!
There are so many different ways to go around building a van, and I don't think there's really a wrong or a right one. Some people do the floor first before they insulate their walls; some people insulate the whole van before they move on; some people leave the floor/flooring for later when they have … Continue reading Van Build: Sub Floor & Flooring
We recently made our way over to Canada to get ready for our little guy to make his appearence but this meant having to jump through a few hoops and travel restrictions/requirements. Currently Canada's borders are shut to international travel. You can fly into Canada for very few reasons, one of them being returning home … Continue reading Flying into Canada during Covid-19
One of the first things we did with the van, after dealing with some interior rust and installing our MaxxAir Fan, was insulate. We wanted to insulate the van so that it would stay warm in the winter but also keep out heat in the summer, since we plan on living in it year round. I … Continue reading Van Build: Insulating
Nope, it's not a new suitcase, backpack or a puppy (sad face). We've tested positive and it wasn't for Covid! Yep, our middle seat occupier and teeny world traveller is arriving this summer! Our newest carry-on arrives August 2021. Oh yeah, and it's a boy! We announced this next adventure months ago, but i'm only … Continue reading Did someone say new carry-on?
Choosing a layout for our van build has been so hard! And I don't think we have a final decision yet! Every time we think we've settled on a layout we end up changing our minds! It definitely doesn't help that I have major decision anxiety! I can't make up my mind! 🙈 We have … Continue reading Van Build: Choosing a Layout
YES! You heard it, we FINALLY bought a van! We've been talking about buying a van and converting it to live in full time for YEARS! Probably even ever since we first met. We intended to finally get around to it while we were in Canada, but things didn't work out for numerous reasons. So, … Continue reading WE BOUGHT A VAN!!!
We started doing these posts way back when we were travelling Europe as a way to list some of our favourite things we were finding or experiencing during our trip. I'm not really sure why we stopped but I'd like to get back to posting them as a way to look at the week and … Continue reading Friday Favourites
Italy, where do we even start when it comes to the food, it's easily one of our favourite cuisines. One thing we recently learned was that each area of Italy has its own traditional dishes. So even though you can probably get carbonara anywhere in Italy, traditionally it comes from Rome. But, for the most … Continue reading What and Where to eat in Rome
