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! 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. At […]

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 […]

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 […]
