Hiii, it’s meee! Remember this? Ahhh I will just imagine the subtle sound of raindrops on my tin roof are waves crashing onto the beach. Just to switch it up sometimes. side note: it started getting warmer. Rainy, yet warmer. • That’s me talking about the weather, wondering where the hot sunny days of May in Austria have gone. • my imagination actually tends to fly to places like Bali or Hawaii when I spend too much time in weather that’s cold with little sunshine. • 🧚♀️🏝☀️
affogato~ af·fo·ga·to | ~\ ˌä-fō-ˈgä-(ˌ)tō noun (Italian, "drowned") is a coffee-based beverage. It usually takes the form of a scoop of gelato or ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso. ☕🍧 Mondays are becoming special to us! Last week we had @haus_enroute who started the same week as us visit for Rachel's birthday 🎂 and then yesterday we had @littlehouseonthehwy visit! 🤠 They actually started August 2018 as well! Liz & Rich are such bundles of joy! Hanging out with them is guaranteed to lead to good laughs while yet getting to some serious topics! We also had @globalnomadmom join us for the morning breakfast at @justlovecoffee, knowing that she couldn't make it to the @unitedtinyhouse in Nashville TN June 1-2 . This gave her a great time to see one the best beach themed schoolies out there. . Liz & Rich have such a great story of how they met working on cruise liners 🚢and the fun adventures they have gotten to experience throughout the world. But what's really great about them is how relaxed they are!!🏖️ Rich is for sure all about making sure everyone is having a good time and just being a friend. And Liz is one that can inspire you with her dreams and goals of what she plans to accomplish. If you're not already following them go check out their page @littlehouseonthehwy . . We went to a local creamery and I had an amazing affogato. They ice cream of choice was honey crisp🍯in a waffle cone !!! It was first time @hattiejanescreamery had made that! It was like the perfect balance. .
Chuck the bed up and make a new suntrap .... Got to be one of my favourite tricks to make those Moho folks a lil bit jel 😉 ... I'm a bit sad this is all about to come to an end (for a lil bit) we've decided to go back to the UK for 6 months to earn and save quickly before coming back to Spain to give this a propper bash with the right amount of savings as Nd ideally money to buy land! I also want to convert a Luton box and gain some space so may be upgrading Rambo (this notion is scary ive owned Rambo for 6 years!) But to live in full time with a huge dog I want a fixed bed table and seating area.... So yes my head is reeling from it all incl the idea i'd even sell Rambo! #theonlythingconstantischange
First 3 exciting days for @bearfehr, @neverfehr and @samsarathevan in Portugal. On our way to #porto we decided to stop by at Serra dos Passos (948 asl) to check the climbing #crag. We stopped by at the café and spoke with the locals where should we drive and if our campervan can drive all the way up to the crag. They said no problem just go ahead and drive up there. Checked for more information on the ukclimbing.com about the approach to #serradospassos and read that a 4wd is advisable to drive on these rough roads. But @bearfehr was so optimistic and relied on what the locals have told us, so we drove up there, and while driving up we realized that there’s no way we are able to retreat because the road we were at was narrow and steep. We kept on driving and heard this strange sound while driving in a narrow curved and had suspicion that we might have flat tired again. Unluckily we flat tired on the same tire that was fixed few days ago in Spain. We finally arrived in the summit of Serra dos Passos and the view is spectacular and magnificent. #climbing experienced was okay, some good routes and lots of route that needed to be cleaned. We tried to change the tire the next day with no luck and decided that we just have to rely on the other inner rear tire and hope that we don’t get another flat tire. Luckily, we had full 4G reception and we could check google maps satellite view to find a better way to descent. We drove the way to #franco village instead of #passos village despite of the advice from the locals. Finally, we reached Franco village with just one flat tire and asked the locals where the nearest tire shop is, and we drove to #mirandela city. We are so lucky that we reached at the shop before closing time. The staff at Toninho dos Pneus were so helpful, and again with sign language, google translate and a smile helps along the way. @Samsarathevan is fit for fight again and all 6 wheels are in good condition. We found a nice spot to park for the

Can you tell I like @patagonia ??! lol no but seriously...this past weekend was something to remember. It was freezing cold and legit rained on us the entire weekend except for this 5 min window of sunshine where I snapped this photo. Jack almost got hypothermia (he was ballsy enough to jump in) but we weren’t able to do much cliff jumping this time of year like we normally do when coming to this spot. I share this photo today because even though it was miserable weather and camping in a cramped van might seem dreadful to some, the smile on my face says otherwise. We enjoyed living in the moment, loving one another and laughing along the way. This waterfall has been our go to spot when we want to just take off and enjoy ourselves and I’ll forever hold this place near my heart. Nature has a magical way of clearing my mind and allowing my body to reset itself. 🌸
First cut is the deepest. This stage is really long ago and was the very beginning of the conversion. The feeling of cutting holes in a brand new car is horrible. But I loved the neighbor‘s faces 🤣🤣 . #firstcutisthedeepest#windowmount#schiebedach#heki

5 wunderbare Tage liegen nun hinter mir. Das #dzf19 ist nun vorbei und ich kann sagen: " Wow!" Das war der absolute Wahnsinn 🤩 Beginnend vom Aufbau, über die Betreuung der Gäste bis hin zum Mülleimer leeren....ich war überall...und das sehr gerne ♥️ Mein persönliches Highlight war der Vortrag von der @busbastleracademy Ich durfte das Kamerakind sein und hatte ne Menge Spaß mit den Jungs ( danach brauchte ich aber dringend einen Yoga-Meditation-Kurs auf dem SUP 😅) Nach dem Festival ist vor dem Festival und so bin ich demnächst unterwegs zu den @van_days_reise_mobil_treffen . Wer von euch war auf dem #dzf19 und wer kommt noch zu den #vandays ?
Stavanger am Nationalfeiertag Norwegens 🇳🇴 Wir sind so froh, das miterlebt zu haben. Alle Menschen waren auf den Straßen, trugen Trachten und feierten. Das Wetter war genauso schön wie die Stimmung & wir sind noch ein Stück begeisterter von diesem wunderschönen Land. ✨
