A skoolie conversion is not all smiles!
But last night I watched a @brenebrown talk on Netflix about vulnerability. One small takeaway (there were so many!) was that vulnerability is required in order to live a truly courageous life. It reminded me of just how big a risk we’ve taken to pursue this dream life. Even though it’s scary at times, it gave me renewed energy and encouragement that we are moving in the right direction and that is certainly a reason to smile.
To anyone who chooses courage over comfort today, give yourself a pat on the back and leave a 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏽♂️ in the comments so we can all support one another.
My favorite pieces of wood I'm saving for the front of the bus where we will have our travel map. It's beautiful 😍

This is what Christmas is supposed to feel like. What is your favorite nonmaterial thing that makes you feel connected during this season? A very happy holidays, from the LUCKY bus. ❤️
PS...do you want to see the inside?
Weiter geht's im Rückblick. Der erste Abschnitt unserer Reise hat uns in den Norden geführt. Nach Norwegen und Finnland war #Estland dran. Wir hatten keinerlei Erwartungen und auch keine Vorstellung, was uns hier erwarten würde. Vielleicht waren wir gerade deswegen so extrem positiv überrascht. 😍
“Encore” is ready for final soft touches - next up upholstery, bedding and curtains 🛌
We spent a week at Mini Camping KooningsVeld in Arnhem to visit the bridges and war memorials. Stayed a lot longer than we expected due to my back problem but also we wanted to know more about the place. An amazing place to live for individuals with learning difficulties and disabilities. There mission is:- "to reduce the distance between society and people in the labour market. The campsite is a means of achieving this goal. We mainly think in terms of possibilities and not limitations". People with intellectual disabilities live in a number of houses on the 50-hectare park. The campsite is located at the end of this park and is open all year round. The campsite is cared for and maintained by the clients, in collaboration with supervisors"
A truly lovely place and lovely people.
The woods are devine and so peaceful and beautiful. Plenty of nice walks and cycle paths. Thankyou so much to everyone there for making it such a magical place. We look forward to coming back soon hopefully 🙏🤞 http://www.camping-kooningsveld.nl/p/over+ons .https://www.siza.nl/ . .
Houston... the Eagle has landed 🌚 we absolutely loved the Houston Space Center. A great homeschool day as well with the history, math, and science. We even got to see the Control Room. .
I totally nerded out over all the engineering it took to get a man on the moon and the numerous trips up in space.

@jordantarver spent around $1,500 on the conversion. So how did @thestoryonwheels accomplish this cost-effective conversion that he also feels proud to drive around? Well he didn’t splurge on unnecessary items and built everything with function over form. For instance, he uses recycled denim for installation, crafted his bed by cutting up a mattress with safety pinned fabric and purchased picture frame wire from Joanne’s to create the curtains. See what the van looked like before, link to van tour in bio. 🎥🚐 #projectvanlife
We have a new employee here at Sierra! Gunter the grinch stopped by to add a few finishing touches, although the lack of thumbs made it tough... #Sierra#SierraRV
Some days things don’t go to plan. We spent the night at a monastery, after having had two peaceful nights at other monasteries we thought we would sleep well here, but that evening we got a knock from an angry monk who didn’t talk English. He left after a few minutes of repeating himself and us repeating Sorry, English only.
So we set off very early the next day to visit places near Skader Lake National Park. Our first place proved inaccessible with height barriers and a flooded underpass under the busy main road. Our second stop had a very persistent stray who would leave Roy alone and again was covered in rubbish, nice views though. The third stop was supposed to be a park and garden but turned out to be a tiny bit of tarmac with a basketball hoop right in the middle of a questionable residential area. Feeling uninspired and deflated we continued to our next spot. En route we noticed lots of cars parked with all their doors and boots open - we thought that was strange until we saw a family butchering a dead pig on their driveway and then another family doing the same to a pig in their garage. Perhaps they were airing their cars after transporting dead pigs in them?! Our fourth stop was a beautiful ferocious waterfall called Mini Niagara Falls. Unfortunately as soon as we got out the van with Roy we were greeted by a pack of barking angry looking dogs that came running at us. We made a hasty retreat back to the van to keep Roy safe and Laura and Agnes went to explore the falls which were incredible.
heute vor genau drei jahren lagen wir freudestrahlend in diesem alten mazda; henni haben wir ihn genannt, nach seinem vorherigen besitzer.
das bild ist verwackelt und unscharf aber trotzdem eins der ganz besonderen. es entstand kurz nach maries kauf und kurz vor beginn unseres neuseeland-roadtrips zu dritt. marie ist zu dem zeitpunkt schon erfahrene campervanreisende – für uns beide hingegen wird es das erste mal richtige "vanlife"-luft schnuppern sein.

As the year draws closer to an end I can’t help but reflect back on all the wonderful things I’ve gotten to do and the wonderful people I’ve meet along the way. I can’t believe it’s been two years since I purchased my first van, converted it, and then left New York to come back west. In those two years I’ve gotten to meet my nomadic family and so many wonderful van life friends! @artvangrow@bogan_bus@thenomadicsunny@thisbusplusus@the_frugal_rver@drivingmevananas@tallmaninavan@backroadsvermont -
I’ve gotten time to decompress from the stresses of city life, work on my watercolors, and photography, find stillness and peace. Now on my second van and working again full time and based out of the west coast I’m no longer full time in my van but ever grateful to be able to balance my crazy work life with the peace and tranquility of nature. -
As we go into the new year who are you grateful for and what experiences have brought you the most joy?

Привет, любителям вэнлайфа.
А у нас новое видео на канале.
В описании к видео мы оставили геолокации мест, в которых мы были.
С утра мы отправились на поиски водопада в Сахарну, а ближе к обеду поехали в Рыбницу, где нам провели очень крутую экскурсию жители города♥️
По старинке ссылка в шапке профиля.
Всем хорошего дня 💛
