Exclusively for non-vanlifers with treadmills

Yo, you wannabes in a house that does not move and has more space. Do you happen to have a mechanical treadmill and do you feel that you’re getting old or think that the belt no longer works properly, maybe because too much dust has gotten into the thing or whatever? Change your shoes! WhatContinue reading “Exclusively for non-vanlifers with treadmills”

Is this the ultimate non-disposable coffee cup?

One of the things I learned this morning was that there is now a kind of mug – a really expensive kind of mug I should add – that controls the temperature of your beverage via an app. And it seems to be unexpectedly popular. Not the kind of mug you’d toss in the bin,Continue reading “Is this the ultimate non-disposable coffee cup?”

Meet Hannah (and eh Mav’)

What I really like about watching these van life videos is getting to “meet” all these so very different people who are all just, well, wonderful, and with whom I might not ever connect in real life (though coincidences can sometimes play the craziest tricks on you). Not to mention the wonderful music I getContinue reading “Meet Hannah (and eh Mav’)”

Windows in the roof!

Another one of my favourite builds and this person too has a really good aura. Windows in the roof are a brilliant idea. She too has one of those wonderful slide-out tables, and lots of wood. I found her heater (see heating page). I was not able to find the HyperVent underlay in the UK,Continue reading “Windows in the roof!”

Clearing your debts – and saving up!

Meet Sammi. I love this one too. Rrrustic. That’s the word. Cosy and comfy. Warm. Can be done in 6 weeks, she says, and most of what she used cost very little. And it looks smashing. Water butts. What on earth is a water butt, I ended up wondering shortly after I moved to Britain.Continue reading “Clearing your debts – and saving up!”

Have to laugh. Sorry.

I was watching a video about American (US) vanlifers crossing borders in South America, and it’s such a big deal for them. Yeah, it IS! But Americans have such a huge continent that they can travel around in with so many different kinds of environments without ever needing to cross a border. So borders areContinue reading “Have to laugh. Sorry.”

Malt of the month

This dropped into my mailbox this morning and I thought I’d share it with you, in view of the fact that colder and darker days are ahead of us. Yep, we’re well into October! Haven’t tried this one myself yet. Had never heard of it before. Probably something to do with the price. The veryContinue reading “Malt of the month”
