Puerto Escondido, baby

Ooooo Puerto. The magical, oft sickeningly hot, tropical beach land that is Puerto. I have nothing but love for the town itself but I must admit my experience was marred slightly by 48 hours of a pretty nasty stomach bug that lead to a gnarly fever for which I was bed-ridden. Womp womp womb. Aside…

Mexico City

Luke works for a dope company. How dope you ask? So dope it allows him some travel time to places on our bucket lists. Over the next month, he and I will be traveling to parts of Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. Our first stop was through Mexico City where we ate real well, devoured endless…

Van Morrison

Shout out to Van Morrison who gave us quite possibly the easiest #vanlife weekend to date! Luke and I have had our fair share of difficulties when it comes to finding a place to camp. During our weekend with Morrison we didn’t have a lot of time- try 24 hours to be exact. Rather than…

Sparkles the Sprinter Van

Drumroll for [my absolute favorite van name of all time] Sparkles the Sprinter van! I gotta tell it to ya straight… GoCamp’s Sparkles is a dream. Taking a trip with Sparkles feels less like roughing it ‘van life’ style and more like ‘hitting the jackpot/ winning a vacation a la Let’s Make a Deal’. Sparkles…

The Marin Mountaineer

Hey world. It’s time to welcome the Marin Mountaineer to the van rental game. [Insert deep blissful sigh] What a weekend. Two weeks ago Luke and I had the incredible privilege of taking out one of GoCamp‘s San Francisco-based campervans, the Marin Mountaineer. It had been months (yes, months) since we’d hopped inside a van and…

Where to Spend One Summer Month

As Luke and I tend to do after a silly (and survey-able) debate pops up, we took to our Insta story last Sunday. The question of the hour? If you could travel anywhere in the world during one summer month, where would you go? We received a ton of great suggestions and also heard from a few…

How to Capture Your Journey

In 1980, my mom and dad moved into an RV they called ‘Kuyuktuvuk’. They had been married for about one month and their thirst for adventure, quite like ours, could not be ignored. The two of them spent about twelve months traveling the country, photographing landscapes, their friends, one another, and my mother was there…

Montana Lee is my hero

Yes, Instagram shares our story with the world – a fractured version, one that is curated to grab an entire day and shrink it down into one moment that encapsulates the feelings of the afternoon. The single shot is not always enough however. We want to grab more than our morning coffee, the scenery we…

We were on Business Insider!!

A couple of weeks ago Melia Robinson sent us an introductory email asking if we’d be interested in sharing our van life story for an article to be posted on Business Insider. After choking on our own spit from shock and excitement, we were able to compose ourselves enough to write back something to the…
