Before starting our conversion we had absolutely no DIY skills, no plumbing skills and definitely no electrical skills. I’m proud to say, we’ve learnt a lot.

The best thing about building everything yourself is when something breaks, you know how to fix it. 


This is so weird, seeing 4 months of our life in 20 minuets. If you’ve built out a van before you’ll know that it completely takes over every aspect of your life. Our actual blood, sweat and tears are embedded into each layer of this metal tin with wheels that we now call home. 


If you have any questions about anything in this video please leave a comment on the YouTube video and we will get back to you as soon as we can. 


Now that our van is complete, subscribe to join us for adventures all around Europe and the UK where we’ll be talking about the best free campsites, van life hacks and much more! We are so grateful for your support 🙂


If you saw something in this video that you quite liked the look of, we probably have a step by step video on how to make it.

About Me

Hi! I am Beth Johnstone, a travel journalist and photographer.

I began travelling in 2014 with what I thought would be a short holiday. I’ve now been travelling around the world full time for five years, taking photographs, writing about the places I’ve been and immersing myself in new cultures.

I am passionate about capturing the whole experience not just with images, but with words too. My blog is a positive place where I welcome readers to learn about the best places to stay, along with tips and advice on long term travel.

“Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.”
