I am posting this in a whopping storm with sudden loud bursts of, well, wind. It is cold, too. It’s the wind chill factor.
Hey guys, you overlanders and other globetrotters pick up a lot of languages on the way, right? Well, last night, I sat on my bed and found myself looking into Mandarin (blame that virus) and realized how natural it is in a way. Many years ago, when China was only just starting to open itsContinue reading “Learning Chinese”
Oh, I forgot. That is another thing that I have in common with Hannah. I have done tons of different things too, and I too feel that the things you learn are a form of wealth. (I have a feeling I’ve already posted this video? It may have gotten a new title.)
Wow, in this episode, Hannah got hassled by the cops not once but twice. It’s funny, when I watch Hannah’s videos, there is this part of me that seems to think “that could have been what you might have been like if you’d grown up in a normal family”. It’s like I see a versionContinue reading “Speaking of cops”
Yes, says George. In this post, I wrote that I had not heard yet of it happening in the UK. Now I have. I know of one woman in California who had police knock on her van and warn her that local regulations were changing. In practice, they haven’t been enforcing those new regulations there.Continue reading “Does the UK have a problem with van life?”
So thoroughly un-English!
Lots and lots of rain in this KombiLife video, which first made me think it was recorded roughly in early November when I had planned to drive to the north and back and then decided that maybe that wasn’t such a good idea. Lots of flooding going on. (Now again, by the way. Or lastContinue reading “Happy New Year, (from the) UK!”
Okay, Kaylee Marie, you have serious competition in Hannah, but, no worries, you both are unique and wonderful. I use to LOVVVV thrifting, used to go through St. Pete’s thrift shops and the sad thing is that so few people (seem to) understand what it is about.
Lots of lovely accents, in fact. Such as that “ja, private space” solution”! Wunderbar! Toll! Genius, that door trick. And what about that handmade curtain at the front? The bus cost 6,900 Canadian and they spent the same amount on the build. All in all, it cost about 15,000 Canadian. That CUBIC mini woodstove alsoContinue reading “Schoolbus with German accent”
She has such a wonderful energy. So much peace. And she and her sister are so wonderful together, great sisters. Enjoy!
A fun watch that may provide you with inspiration for how to create your own solutions. I saw something really cool on LinkedIn, too, recently. I wish I had saved it. A highly flexible piece of furniture. I think it was Dutch. I repurpose a lot of stuff and that too can turn into aContinue reading “Space-saving furniture”
Here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-50856193 These folks live in Hastings, which is totally not in Wales. Maybe I missed something. They’re about to hit the road with their small son. What triggered it for them was a missed mortgage payment.
Plus tour of Amsterdam and Camping Zeeburg. I’m not gonna tell you guys where to buy your chips. (Although I happen to know a place in Southampton that’s won a few national competitions, the chippie around the corner from where I live is pretty good too. That was the fourth local chippie I’d tried; theContinue reading “Oh no! Ginjey Bear’s parked herself in a Dutch tree!”
He’s certainly picking all the tomatoes in life! (Plus he likes birds. The feathered kind!) He’s a bit like Mevi, methinks. In some ways. Or maybe Mevi is a bit like him. But in other ways, Mevi and Andy are opposites.
With Tom and Brooke. And Thor the dog. In the UK, highway rest stops are called “services”. You’ll see the signs along the motorways and you can fill up on lots of things there. They’re a little bit like miniature airport surroundings, without the planes and stuff, where you can also fuel up your vehicle.Continue reading “Come along on a drive to Cornwall!”
