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.

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 […]

There’s No Place Like Everywhere: Why We’re Living in an RV Instead of a House (Again!)

We’ve been off the road for a bit – almost exactly two months, to be precise – while we’ve switched from our former home in an Airstream trailer to a new motorized RV, and it still feels so weird to be in one place for so long. We should feel right at home being back in the […]

We’re Selling Our Beloved Airstream

We’re just shy of the one-year mark living as nomads on the roads of North America, and wow, what an adventure it has been! 35 states, countless new friends, and more stories than we can even begin to remember.
