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 […]

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! We spent two full months exploring Alaska, plus a couple additional weeks traversing western Canada en route. It was an epic journey in every sense — mind-blowingly gorgeous, awe-inspiring, humbling.

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

Yearning to Rest Easy in Your RV? Our Denver Mattress Review

Among the top things that people dislike about camping is the typically-uncomfortable sleeping situation. Many of us upgrade from a tent to a trailer or motorhome for this reason, happily giving up air mattresses for more of the comforts of home…or so we think. It’s no secret if you’ve shopped for or owned a trailer or RV that […]

Have Online Job, Will Travel: But Is It Worth It?

Confession time: we regularly ask ourselves if a nomadic lifestyle is worth it if we still have to work full-time. From the outside, a traveling lifestyle looks pretty darn carefree, even if you have a job as you roam. This belief is perpetuated by travel bloggers (ourselves included!) posting jealousy-inducing photos of themselves working near the beach, in swanky […]
