🇪🇸... y seguimos con más detallitos, donde la Gustava (aka Skeletor) enseña con orgullo cuán cuidada está para convertirse en mi hogar. La cortina de cuerda exfoliante del baño está rematada con capuchoncitos de caña natural; cuando chocan entre ellos al pasar se oye un tintineo relajante muy especial. Unido al olor a pueblo y boñiga de vaca de la cuerda, se convierte en una experiencia rural sin igual. Cañas 🎋 recogidas y trabajadas una a una manualmente por mi omnipresente Padre 😄 ° ° ° 🇬🇧 ... let's keep up revealing more details; Gustava (aka Skeletor) proudly shows how carefully she is being adorned to become my sweet home. The exfoliating rope curtain in the bathroom is topped with natural cane hoods. When they hit each other as you pass through them, a very special relaxing tinkle is heard. Besides, the "village and cows" smell of the rope brings you a matchless rural experience. The canes 🎋 have been collected and handcrafted one by one by my omnipresent Dad 😄.
Found a new way to shower today after we soaped down in the waves it was nice to have a hot, fresh water shower. This beach has continued to blow our expectations out of the water literally. - Side note bae has a tan line that would knock your socks off. 🤙🏽
Finally getting to the fun stuff in the van build! Our new fan is installed (and working!!) just in time for the summer heat and now we can start the process of decorating and organizing the storage spaces to make this tiny home on wheels as functional as possible! Any recommendations for really awesome storage bins or diy hacks for maximizing storage in small spaces?
Friends! We’re makin’ progress! Joe got to break in his brand new table saw yesterday & the framing for our bench seats that will convert into our bed is almost complete! ➵ It makes me teary that I even thought for one second about giving up on this dream of ours. 😭 ➵ But you know what the only thing worse than giving up is? Wishing that you hadn't... ➵ See - I've always wanted to travel. I love experiencing new things, going on spontaneous adventures and soaking up the beauty this world has to offer. But here's the thing...I could never afford to go anywhere or have the ability to take the time off work. I turned down SO many amazing trips because I had to work or didn’t have the money. Anyone else feel me on that? 😫🙋🏼 ➵ One day I just got so SICK of living like that. We get ONE life, right? I want my life packed full of incredible memories! To this date, my ‘little side business’ has funded every single one of my 40+ vacations over the past 4 years. It's given me breathing room to FINALLY be able to afford things that I never could before. ➵ NOW - we’re working towards this INSANE dream of traveling full time together that I never in a MILLION years thought would even be possible. ➵ And if I’m being honest - the thought came to mind more than once to quit because being a business owner isn’t easy. But here's the thing...NOTHING truly amazing comes easy. It takes work - like ANYTHING worthwhile does! ➵ I had to stretch myself, learn new things, develop self-discipline and be consistently work my business. Everyday isn't a walk in the park...but is it worth it? ➵ 👉🏼HELL YES it is!!!!👈🏼 ➵ So thankful I was bold enough to say yes to an opportunity I knew nothing about. So proud that I was strong enough to ignore the people that didn't believe in me. So happy I didn’t let someone else’s decision to quit on themselves make me so doubtful that I ended up quitting on myself. So grateful that I kept going on
Time FLIES! Next week, we celebrate SIX months on the road! Oh, the places we’ve seen. We are so so grateful for our journey, the people we’ve met and our friends & family who made it out to make our trip that much more special. Can’t wait to see what the next 6 months has in store for us ✨ 📸 @hellohimichou
Will has some work on in the South of England, so Pigs and I decided to come along and explore. She seems pretty happy to be back in the van for the next few nights. We’re hoping to head to the New Forest for a day at least, if you have any favourite spots let us know!
Back in the slow lane and we couldn’t be happier 🚐😁 Cannot believe it’s already been 3 weeks since we returned home to Donovan from Europe ~~ time certainly flies when you’re having fun. Most of my camera gear broke / fell off a cliff while we were overseas 🙈📸 ... I’ll replace my gear eventually, but for now it’s been sweet enjoying day to day without the desire/expectation of a nice shot. Really relishing in this simple life. Currently on a post Bluesfest high ⭐️💃🏽 we had a grooooovy weekend overflowing with great company and fab music... We‘ll probably float around this area for a while, especially now that the school holidays are coming to an end (anyone else excited for less crowds ?! 🙌🏽) it’s time for us to explore deeper and really get familiar with these lands 🐳🦎🌿🌾🌈. Anywho, now I’m just rambling, enjoy your day! 🐚 @handmade_lucid
