I live in a campervan and travel around New Zealand. On this page I’ll share stories and photos about the places I’ve visited.
For most people, retirement is a time to slow down. A time to put your feet up and relax and enjoy the comforts of life. But not so for Liz and Alan. Instead, they are using their retirement to explore New Zealand - on foot!
One question I get asked a lot from people who hear that I live and travel in my campervan is how I make the financial side of things work. So I thought I’d write a blog post about how I became a digital nomad and how I’m making remote working work for me.
Ever since I started living in my campervan, countless people have asked me how much does it cost to live on the road in New Zealand. So I decided to set up an online survey and find out what the average person living this way spends. Here is what I learnt.
It’s been five months now since I said goodbye to the career-focused 8-5 city life and moved into my van – And what an amazing five months it has been.
I’m about to take a little break for a few weeks so time for some reflections.
Learning to surf is hard. But one thing that makes it a bit easier and a lot more fun are the incredible supportive surfer girls I've been meeting all over New Zealand and online in the past few months.
This one is for all of them...
After 11 years in New Zealand I FINALLY made it to the East Cape - And I totally fell in love with it.
A fairly unspoiled and unexplored area of New Zealand, the East Cape's rawness, realness and beauty made me feel like I was Alice in Wonderland exploring a magical place.
Yesterday I said goodbye to the beautiful Far North and started making my way south.
Here is a look back at what has been an amazing four week.
3 weeks ago today, I packed up the last of my stuff, moved out of the temporary home I had stayed at for the last 4 weeks and into the van to start the big adventure.
To sum up the last three weeks in one word: ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
The first proper weekend trip with Josie the Van since driving her up from Christchurch last months and I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you might already know that I’ve just bought a super cool campervan. I’m so excited about this!!
