  • Repost from @mywanderingisland - [ENG BELOW]👇🏻 ✨ #RESPONSIBLEVANLIFE👉🏻KOSMETIK! Verantwortungsvolles Campen fängt bei uns vor allem mit den Produkten an, die wir tagtäglich nutzen. Wir versuchen uns & unser Abwasser mit so wenig chemischen Mitteln wie möglich zu belasten & machen daher z.B. viele unserer „Hygieneartikel“ selber oder benutzen rein natürliche, 100% biologisch abbaubare Produkte. Zahnpasta & Deo auf Kokosölbasis! Haare waschen mit Aleppo-Seife & Apfelessig. Peeling auf Zuckerbasis oder Kaffeesatz! Duschen mit Naturseife oder gern auch mal Dr. Bronners. Nachhaltige DIY-Alternativen & vor allem Produkte gibt es zuhauf dort draußen. Das Internet hilft 👌🏻💪🏻👌🏻WAS FÜR PRODUKTE BENUTZT IHR SO UNTERWEGS & ZUHAUSE?

For us being responsible starts with the products we use on a daily base. In order to keep our grey water as clean as possible we try to use as less as possible chemical products in our daily life on the road. Among other things we make most of our cosmetics by ourselves or use only natural, 100% biodegradable products. Toothpaste & deodorant made out of coconut oil! Washing the hair with Aleppo soap & apple cider vinegar. Body peeling out of sugar or coffee grounds! Showering with natural soap or Dr. Bronners. There are tons & tons of sustainable diy alternatives as well as sustainable products out there on the market. The internet is your friend 👌🏻💪🏻👌🏻WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE ON THE ROAD & AT HOME?

  • TICKING JOBS OFF THE LIST We’ve ticked so many jobs off the list today, and we’re feeling very prepared for the trip into Europe. We’ve weighed the van at the local tip, with a full tank and us both sitting in it (3.1 tonne - he’s a bit of a heavy lad!), and we’ve passed our MOT with flying colours. We’ve got our full European breakdown cover sorted and we’ve insured our belongings. We’ve finally got nuts to put our spare tyre on the back of the van and we’ve purchased a jerrycan for diesel that we’re going to mount onto the back of the van. The silicone tyre weld is in the back of the van with the spare oil filter and drive belt, and we’ve got a full bottle of oil for topping up and changing on the road. The best part of the day was getting brand new keys for the van - our old one used to fall out all the times, and we’d have to go searching through leaves to find it 😂 The jobs list has got a lot smaller, but there’s still some bits left to do! 8 days and counting!

  • We do Redbox !!! It keeps us sane and from overworking some nights. Who else loves movie nights in the Van?? We do have a tv and DVD player in the van however, it does use a bit of power. When we are trying to conserve our house batteries we bust out our iPad that has Netflix and amazon prime with pre-downloaded shows and movies.💕with all this technology I’d say most of the time ... we don’t use it but we absolutely love having it a part of our vanliving toolkit! #dasMAXimusvanigus #thespaks

  • Our favorite part of our tiny house festival adventure was getting to finally stay in our bus.. . One of the comments we heard again and again was how great our bus smelled.. I picked up this @dwhomecandles hemp seed scented candle from @tjmaxx last week.. it was definitely a hit. . Also FYI if you ever wonder where we got something.. check out the tags.. I always tag the items 👍🏻

  • 2 years ago when I was renting a room in downtown Toronto, I wrote future goals for myself. Time went on, those goals stayed in the back of my mind and if I got off track I could revisit those notes. Its been a work in progress, but I've achieved everything I wrote down. Not everything came in the form that I was expecting, but I still got what I asked for 🤙

  • Laundry day! ⠀ ⠀ After close to a 1000 people came through our house, (I couldn’t keep up) we stripped out the bus and are washing everything. Then a thorough wipe down and deep vacuuming. ⠀ ⠀ This is one of those times we let the kids grab their iPads and completely veg out. ⠀ ⠀ They play and work hard and I know just melting away into their iPad is sometimes needed

  • Lately I’ve been working to find my style. I know how I like to travel, I know how I like to eat, camp, spend my free time and spend my money, but I have no idea how to be stylish, especially while living on the road. ••• I’ve tried it all. From expensive REI outfits to thrift store treasures... and I’m still clueless. So here I am, wearing a coat from high school and @ladjes grandmothers old turtle neck. ••• Please give me advice!!

  • I just left the festival in Florida and new adventures are starting. Before every trip it’s always a good idea to do a quick service check on your rig. First step to a successful adventure.... a quick look over.

  • Happy Monday! Cheers to a 3rd cup of coffee! Pic 1- Selfie in a dirty mirror- and pic 2- swipe to see our only mirror (other than the rear view) in the bus. Few comments I want to make- 1) it has never seemed so pointless to clean a mirror as it does now when I have a small Mancub who fingerprints and smears all things reflective instantaneously. 2) it is not just a mirror it's actually a medicine cabinet that the man at Home Depot gave to us for free (I think bc it has a faulty magnet) 3) that's our view from the right sight of the bed. All windows so we get a beautiful sunrise view every morning and all the daylight 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 buuuutttt we're also getting a pretty cold draft at night so we'll be putting up curtains soon! Question- What kind of material do you think is best for blocking a draft?? I'm considering using old horse blankets and wool rugs 😂 or if you have ideas other than curtains for keeping the cold out, I'm all ears! Ps. If you read this far you deserve another cup of coffee. 🙈 have a wonderful week people!

  • You do this...thing. This thing where you approach stylish strangers or random couples or a poor selfie attempt in progress. You offer, unsolicited, to capture these mundane and spectacular moments from their own camera. To preserve a fleeting, little thing. You brave social awkwardness on the off-chance that they grin. You make people feel good about themselves. You do this reflexively. It’s what makes you a great photographer. Not because you effortlessly toggle between settings or exorbitant lenses. Not because you don’t still get frustrated at bad lighting or editing challenges. But because you are an ocean of empathy. Because you care about telling people’s stories, or at least about ensuring they get to tell their own. What a privilege I have in telling yours. - #vanlife #travelphotography #photographers #storytellers #travelstories

Greens, fish, meat, spices and bread 🍉🍑🥕🐟🦐🍗🌶🥖🍞🥐 we actually miss this lil' town a bit. Loved the vibe there, all the people, the old town with plenty of quirky shops and cafes!

  • We’ve been cuddled up on family couches across Minnesota for the last week while Vanna makes icicles outside ❄️⠀ ⠀ We’ve found many beautiful camp spots across the country but it’s the time spent with friends and family that have made different parts of this trip so special. Thank you to every one of you who have ever offered a bed, hot shower, washing machine, home cooked meal and above all else - your time and company. ⠀
