I don’t know about you, but I have a tough time sleeping if I don’t get a chance to rinse the dust and sweat off at the end of the day.
My little shower works so well to help me clean up at the end of the day, but also stows away into a small space on top of my water tanks below the sink. I didn’t want to sacrifice a huge space inside the van for a hard-walled shower stall, and this setup is wonderfully practical.
I added a longer hose and a sprayer head to the pressurized garden sprayer (all from Lowe’s). I think I spent roughly $40 for the parts. I can pressurize the 2 gallon tank with the hand pump on top, which gives a surprisingly strong stream of water. Usually I use about 1/4 gallon to shower if I’m being frugal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Like I mentioned in a previous post, the shower pan is a cement mixing tray that fits under my galley and doubles as shoe storage.
I also found some biodegradable shampoo from Alaffia at Whole Foods to keep the trees happy.🌲
Se acerca el finde, y recordamos con añoranza nuestros viajes en furgo. Así que hoy os dejamos una fotito de la furgo que alquilamos y camperizamos de manera exprés el año pasado.
Fue una nv 200, que nos acompaño durante casi 4000km😲 en nuestro vantrip por Europa, en el que llegamos hasta Holanda, pasando por Francia, Alemania y Bélgica.
Por eso este año decidimos que necesitábamos probar una furgo mas grande, para ver que nos convencía más para nuestra futura compra.
Y lo tenemos claro!! Queremos una gran volumen, creemos que es lo que mas se adapta a nuestras futuras necesidades, ya que nuestra idea es llegar en unos años al sur este asiático, y tenemos claro que en un viaje tan largo, y con posible no retorno necesitamos comodidades, que nos hagan el día a día mucho mas ameno.

When you are lonely in such paradise, you can't keep your bikini! 😝
We had a wonderful border run to Antigua! The architecture is amazing, great food options, and the climate is near perfect! 3 days wasn't near enough time. Zelle will have us back just to ride the Tuk Tuks!
FARGOOOO! We spent last Friday hitting the Fargo hotspots, visiting friends, and showing Kyle around my alma mater, North Dakota State! I spent 4.5 years in Fargo getting my engineering degree and had a blast while I was there. Have you been to Fargo? Or have you just seen the show/movie? 🙃
“What is the BEST thing to come out of the past eight months of living in the bus?”
I’d like to share Ben’s and my answers to some of the great questions we were asked at our school talk & bus tour yesterday... enjoy! High five to all of the students too, you rock.
A stand out positive was learning that IT’S OKAY to be myself without hesitation — socially, professionally, in person and online. 🤷♀️ The world keeps on turnin’ if you’re YOU and chances are high that you’ll enjoy things a lot more. There’s just TOO MUCH false imagery at our fingertips; this perception of perfection that we’re all supposed to be happy and crushing life 100% of the time. How about just trying, choosing and growing a tiny bit each day instead? Only compare you to you. 💛
Truth is I’ve cried harder in the past eight months than I ever have before. I have days where I feel lost and inadequate. But I’ve also laughed and shared more deeply in a neat space miles away from my previous comfort zone limits. A product of writing your own story, I think. It’s not always pretty but it’s yours.
It’s not about the bus at all, the catalyst was deliberately choosing an experience after years of going through the motions and the have-tos. This MESS is all ours in its wonderfully vibrant and challenging bits. We will never forget it. 💛✌️
The vans mechanical and necessities like: Stove, propane lines, fridge and furnace all work like new. I am super proud to announce she is road worthy and off-grid ready. She is liveable and stable. If there wasn't so much dust in the van id move in right away. But Still got some interior upgrading to do. I managed to finish ALL the walls yesterday and put the supports for my new shelving unit. I don't plan on putting a lot of shelves only because I don't plan on having a lot. My goal is STILL to live as minimal as possible. Who would of thought it, in less than 3 months id strip down and rebuild a whole interior of a campervan. My last project took me nearly 6 months plus to finish and im still not done. Ive learned a lot from my two last projects to make this #vanlife dream a thing. .
There's something to be said for Ollie's perspective on life. No matter how picturesque our latest stop on our journey, give him a stick or ball and somewhere to run around off-leash and it's the best place in the world. #canada#vanlife
We were so lucky with the weather in Alsace, we visited my sister this week and enjoyed this beautiful region of France a lot. We enjoyed the forests, the wildlife & the long walks.
It’s time for Holland now. The last weeks have been rough, we have a lot to deal with right now and some changes are coming our way. Not sure what’s next but I believe we will find a way & figure things out.. Have a great weekend you guys 💕 If you have a minute, we asked you guys some questions in our stories 💕 🌎
Nous avons eu beaucoup de chance au niveau du temps en Alsace, nous avons rendu visite à ma soeur cette semaine et avons beaucoup aimé cette belle région de France. Nous avons apprécié les forêts, la faune et les longues promenades.
Il est temps pour la Hollande maintenant. Les dernières semaines ont été difficiles, nous avons beaucoup à faire en ce moment et des changements vont arriver... Nous ne sommes pas encore sûrs de ce qui va suivre, mais je suis persuadé que nous trouverons rapidement. Passez un bon week-end les amis. Si vous avez une minute, nous vous avons posé des questions dans nos stories. #raisedontheroad#alsace#france#europe#vanliferseurope
