5 Tough Things About Vanlife


Living in a van just looks incredible, like a dream. It is, but it naturally has some challenges. I thought it's only fair if I share a few things that have not been the easiest since being on the road. 

At times picking a spot to stay the night can get a bit tedious. We always wonder whether there will be another, more beautiful spot around the corner. It has gotten easier over time. I still have a bit of anxiety about parking in villages and cities, because I don't want to inconvenience anyone or be in anyone's way.  I’m a pretty conscientious person, so not caring is hard for me at times. 

This is more of a mental one, but not knowing whether living on the road is actually a feasible way of life has been somewhat of a challenge. We are hoping to spend quite a bit of time on the road in the next year, so we’ve been brainstorming ways to make money on the road, and thinking about budgets and such. If you have any ideas please let us know! 

Dominik practices music a lot!!! He has brought 4 stringed instruments: acoustic and e-guitar, banjo, ukulele, and he creates digital music on his computer and keyboard in the evenings too. It’s inspiring and wondeful to see him practicing his craft and creating new tunes. But at times the constant bending, blues riffs can get to be a bit much. To download Dom's new EP for free click here!

As I mentioned in my last post that we love being closer to nature. It’s been so refreshing to spend so much time outdoors, but sometimes there are a few too many mosquitos, and our toes get a bit too cold for comfort. 

A bit TMI but… This is just not a pretty part of living on the road. I haven’t posted any photos of this part on instagram. haha. Dumping our little toilet tank is not a pleasant task. We’ve been trying to keep it to pee pee, to make the emptying of the toilet not so smelly. Thankfully Dom does this most of the time! ;)

Living on the road is tough at times, but what life isn’t. It's been so worth it though. 

Thanks for reading lovelies. It's been fun to share our journey with you.
