We have insulation! Yesterday, we were able to get most of the van insulated with @havelock_wool . 🐑 We still need to insulate the ceiling, but we are waiting until we have our ceiling wood picked out. Getting the insulation in all of the tiny nooks was fun but difficult. Good thing @corieo has long slender arms. We noticed almost immediately how well the temperature held once we had the insulation installed. We chose to use wool for a few reasons, the main reason being its ability to manage moisture. Just the other day we noticed how much condensation formed on the inside metal of the van when it was cold outside and we had the heat on. The wool insulation will be able to take in that moisture and then release it once the humidity levels drop. This helps in maintaining the temperature and more importantly keeping the van metal from rusting or forming mold mildew in the walls. Wool insulation is also great for noise reduction and is a renewable and sustainable resource, which was important to us.
Montagmorgen auf der ersten CAMPER NOMADS WORKATION im Palumpa-Land 🚙💻😍 Noch war es ruhig, aber seitdem wurde schon viel gewerkelt und vor allem gab es bei der intensiven Kennenlernrunde schon viele wertvolle Tipps, Anregungen, neue Businessideen und inspirierenden Austausch. Danke dafür @campernomads, @kerstin.ackermannstommel, @crown.town.travellers, @henri_divo, @thorstenheuel, @lukas.faxen.masseur, @lifeofbalu & @vogeladventure 😍
Can't deny how good it feels to have everything I own back inside this little home on wheels and to be waking up in nature again 😍 The free shower I managed to score at the health centre was the icing on top of the cake, too 👌
ONE YEAR AGO I TRAVELED AROUND THE 🇺🇸 IN THIS 🚌 LINK IN BIO @youngadultsurvivalguide 👏 - It's crazy to think that this time last year I was nervous, excited, scared, and happy all at the same time 😬 - Yesterday, Ash (my fiance) and I were stuffing wedding envelopes and we started reminiscing on all the emotions we both felt last year about this trip - To be able to take a "mini" retirement and not work for 6 months is something I would have never thought I could have done 😳 - No one ever talked about doing something like this when I was growing up, in college, or even in the working world - I am so thankful that I stumbled upon many different resources that encouraged me to go for it. There are some amazing Netflix documentaries out there like "The Minimalists" and "Destination Happiness" that helped encourage me that everything would work out and I would have an adventure of a lifetime 🤠 - Go check out some of the weekly videos (LINK IN BIO @youngadultsurvivalguide ) the route I took, and the bus conversion - Do you have any crazy plans in your near future? Retirement? Mini-Retirement? Travel?
"Our favorite area where we spent most of our time was Noosa. Its headland has a fun walk throughout the National Park, filled with several coves offering perfect surf conditions for every level. You’ll find great beach restaurants in town and can drive across the beautiful Noosa river, weaving in and out of this entire region." Full story available - link in bio!

Some days it feels like travel is full of wrong turns, speed bumps, and dog poop.🐶💩 • In the last couple days, Frank threw up seawater all over the van, Trent spilled a tray of tacos on the ground, and Allie drove into a tree branch that knocked off the antenna.😤🤯 • It’s really, REALLY tempting to blame each other, argue, and sulk... But it doesn’t solve anything... Instead we try to laugh it off, learn from it, and move on. 🙏🏼😅 • It’s not as easy as it sounds, but when we fight battles together, instead of fighting each other, the whole world shifts and anything feels possible.✨✨✨ • • • •
