  “One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.” – Henry Miller in Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch (1957) At Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo, Japan – rumored to be the busiest intersection in the world (and definitely in Japan)     Advertisements

How We Stay (Mostly) Sane Living in a Small Space

We currently split our time between living in our Winnebago Travato 59K camper van, a 1,000 square foot studio-style loft, and hotel rooms, especially while traveling internationally. One of the most common questions we’re asked is “Sooo…how is it, living in such a small space?”, which may just be a polite way of asking “Don’t you want to […]

Travato’s First Tire Change

Is this because I bragged about not having a flat on the trip to Alaska? 😀 Silver lining: it’s a lot easier to change a tire ourselves on this van when needed, versus those on our bigger motorhome or trailer, previously. A parking lot is also far more preferable to have this happen in than […]

Our Once-In-A-Lifetime RV Road Trip to Alaska

We crossed a major item off our travel bucket list last summer: we drove our RV to Alaska from the lower 48 United States!

Gimme a Break: Why We’re Making the Switch to Part-Time Travel

Three years of full-time travel in an RV – and living in four different RVs during that time – sure has taught us a lot, as you might expect! We’ve driven our various homes-on-wheels to 44 states and two Canadian provinces so far. There are some great destinations within easy driving distance that we still […]

Honey, I Shrunk Our RV: We Travel in a Van Now!

What on earth would possess us to try to fit two adults, three dogs, and all our earthly possessions into a camper van while traveling? I think we’ve officially lost our minds – Jason Maybe we have lost our minds. But we’ve been doing this for a few weeks now, and loving it so far! […]

Queen of the Road: RVing Ladies Share Their Best Driving Tips

Since we started traveling by RV, we’ve noticed that in most RVer relationships, there’s a tendency for one person to do most, or even all, of the driving. Now, that’s just an observation on our part and not backed up by any statistics whatsoever. I mean, who really has time for that? We feel pretty […]

I Would Drive Ten Thousand Miles…in a New Trek Motorhome

We picked up a 2016 Trek motorhome to serve as our full-time home this past February in Florida. In some ways, it’s hard to believe these 6 months have flown by already. At the same time, it feels like it’s been much longer than half a year of adventures together – maybe because we’ve driven it from Florida to Alaska […]
