Lifestyle vlogging is not really part of the plan for this YouTube channel, the aim is to be an information based channel, with useful tips and tricks for your personal DIY road-life journey. But I realize that perhaps some of you would like to know who the nomad goofballs behind this DIY circus are (me and my road dog that is), so I made a little introduction video. It didn't turn out half bad, considering that very little of this footage was meant for public consumption when filmed. It's not fancy, but I'd like to believe it's honest. The video contains a little bit of info about us, how and why I live on the road, full-time van living, a quick van tour and some beautiful sunsets shot using inadequate equipment. I hope that any lifestyle content that will slip into my DIY videos will come across right, and depict a low budget vanlife experience in a real way. My hope is that it will tell the story of life on the road as a solo female full time van dweller as the quirky and fun, but non-glitzy, life that it is. It can be hard to keep it real and not glamorize vanlife. Videos of open roads and nature are always going to look good, because nature is a natural beauty. Every day isn't picture perfect though. Living off-grid and 'rent free' ('rent' often comes in the form of mechanic bills actually) is liberating, but comes with its own challenges. To make sure I keep it honest I'm creating a series of shorts, short form videos, that I'm calling 'vanlife real talk', to show some much less fantastic days or happenings along the way, because they are part of the story too. So if this video looked a little too good to be true, make sure to check those out as well! I'd like to empower those who aspire to a simpler and more independent life, to share what I've learned so that maybe it will be a little bit easier to find the information you might need for your van build or DIY life. I've spent countless hours doing research on DIY ways to do things, I've been through some trial runs, some failures, but have also stumbled upon some genius solutions, all of which someone else could find useful. I'd like to be of extra help for girls and women who want to try living on the road, or any other alternative life. As females, we are often brought up to walk a pretty narrow path, one that doesn't suit many of us. I'd love to inspire whoever watches my videos to dare to do what your heart desires, and try anything your own way. It is true that each of our circumstances come with their separate set of challenges, but there is always something we can learn from each other. I certainly don't have all the answers, I can only speak from my perspective, but I hope that what I can share helps someone, gain some confidence, some freedom, some independence. This life is for everyone, there must never be an entry fee or VIP card to a nomadic lifestyle. The content of this YouTube channel is based around my DIY low budget van build, tips for anyone who would like to do something similar, some crafting and a few reviews that anyone living this lifestyle (and others) might find useful. Also, dog content, because Tora is bound to become the star of this show, how could she not? We'd love for you to follow along.

Your fantastic and true to heart. I hope one day our paths will cross. Until then thank you for your inspirational messages.
Your photography is beautiful! Glad I found your channel. If you would mention some of the free campsites you find, I wouldn’t complain 😊 Happy travels!🌈🧡
I lost my family and for once I'm on my on again in life. Depression gets me some times but I just started van life. I have to say you have inspired me. Wish we could be friends. Please reach out to me anyone.
What a great channel.
I'm so glad I found you! I'm 56 and just starting van life in my 1995 Dodge 3500 RoadTrek van. I'm excited to watch your DIYs as my old girl needs lots of work and it's all new for me. I'm still looking for my travel companion, but other than that I'm ready to go. Thank you for starting your channel! 🥰🚙🇨🇦
All I can say is what a beautiful video❤
Love your channel!
I like your van, great layout and outside paint job.
