Okay guys. I know this is not a very favorite topic on Instagram and the whole internet but ... its about staying safe so for me its important.
When we made this picture we stood on an empty parkinglot of a French supermarket.
You can see a bit of the cute head of my youngest daughter but also a car who is standing still with lights on at the middle of the parkingstreet.
Now when you see this, you think that there is nothing wrong in this picture.
But what you do not know is that while standing there, shortly after the supermarket was closed and my sons were outside to change the broken carlights, several cars had been circling around our van.
Looking in it, standing nearby with lights on, watching.
In a very very slowly way.
While other people stepped into their car, put the lights and engine on and just drove away, doing their own thing.
The car you see on the picture had been circling too, slowly, like a shark in a sea where people are swimming.
Waiting for us all to step in for the night, to fall asleep.
We did not plan to sleep here, we only were busy with getting our van ready to search for another sleepingspot but there are vans who are standing at places like this for the night.
Place be careful, you are nothing more than a shop for the ones who see your belongings as their groceries. And they do not care if they make you sad or scared, they do not feel a thing, only the urge to get your things. At all costs.
So always look around if it is safe enough to stay there, stay under the light, on places where a lot of people are nearby, not on a totally empty parkinglot. And follow your own gut. If you get the feeling you are being watched, that will be true. And please travel further then.

At the beginning of the summer, I made the goal to better define what it is I'm going for - Asking myself what kind of story do I want to live out and share with the world? ...I think what it comes down to, when all things "fluff" are stripped away, really I just want to be honest. To create honest art through living an honest life. And right now, for me, that looks like saying "I don't know" more often. It looks like leaning into the search rather than pretending I'm sure. Because that's where I'm at. Searching, embracing, listening and learning. So here's to being human. To finding meaning in the mess, and doing it in the best way possible: together. I hope you'll join me. 🖤 @gabriellenelson_#VanlifeExplorers

I remember pulling into this beach. Not because it was more beautiful or special than any others, but because it was one of the first ones where we noticed the half dozen sun baked men scrambling over the rocks, weighed down with bulging canvas sacks, full to the brim with ocean smooth pebbles and rocks. When we asked what was going on we were told they were collecting rocks to be shipped to the US and distributed to stores like Home Goods and Target, ready for American homes with decorative rock paths and coffee table displays. Now without too much of a commentary on trade and industry I remember being taken a back, thinking "Would people still buy those $10.99 little mesh baggies of aquariam rocks if they knew?". There is a culture today of asking these questions. Where does our stuff come from? Limiting your plastic use, buying local, and reusing. But it goes beyond that. We strive to value another humans existance as much as your own, no matter how far removed it may be. We fall short every day but we keep trying. 📷@everyroadleadstohome#VanlifeMagazine

Late Breakfast in the Alabama Hills. I’d seen this place from a few perspectives a hundred times, but the feel of the sunrise and the way sound escapes out here was all new. I tend to avoid the areas that everyone goes, I’m certain I’ll be back here. 📷 @isaacsjohnston#CamperLifestyle

Back working in the van 🙌🚐 ↠ We took a spontaneous month off both posting photos and converting the van. Trying to set up our lives over here in Australia has been our priority, and honestly, it’s not been plain sailing. Visa complications for me (Hannah) have had knock-on effects, and left me with late night anxiety about the decisions we made and future careers. Usually, I pride myself in dealing with uncertainty well, but at some point, the doubts crept in. ↠ I do think that the effects of Instagram depend on your state of mind when you open the app. Although it’s often an amazing source of community and inspiration, sometimes it just feels like competitive, disheartening noise. I’ve actually found myself hiding on my personal account, scared to look at this feed or deal with any comments/DMs. At the end of the day, we post here for fun, not to make Instagram our career or to seek attention. So when we’re not finding it fun, we simply stop posting, and that feels healthy. Just know that there’s always more behind the highlights reel. ↠ I’d love to know your thoughts on this platform - useful, harmful, or both? ↠ [PS. Things are finally coming together now, and the van is getting some attention again in our spare time; currently designing an improved table mechanism and sewing the soft furnishings ✂️🤗] @whoknowswherenext#VanlifeExplorers
