Bare trees and dead grass!? At last, we are in weather and surroundings that are fitting for Christmas! Palm trees and beach weather will never feel right to us when is comes to the holiday season. Looks like it’s officially time to plum up Home Alone and some soup recipes 👍

After some consideration I have decided not to pursue the Legacy of the Beanfield film, I had planned to make in the format I had planned to. The story is much more complex and greater research would be required than I am able to handle independently and would require a great deal of time travelling across the country interviewing many people, which in reality I don't think I am able to do. The interview I did with a fascinating traveller called Roger, gives an amazing introduction to the topics I wanted to share with people and so I have edited a film using the interview and found footage. The film will be released very soon, watch this space... 🚐💕
We went to the Crystal Quarry yesterday for a little breakfast picnic. We were so sad to see though that the place was completely covered in rubbish 😩. We need to go back prepared to carry a lot of crap out. It’s a shame that people think it’s okay to do this after they’ve enjoyed the place. It does look super pretty though, see above ⬆️😍

I'm not sure if this is the start of the travel de-clutter, the pre Christmas de-clutter or the I'm sick of looking at so much stuff de-clutter, but whatever it is, it's started, and I welcome ANY tips!
Tell me, where did you start, what worked, what didn't work? Help!

I’m not going to lie we didn’t love Palermo, which is always disappointing. Which is why you’re getting a photo of Atlas looking out the van window rather than one of the city. Also because the color of the sunrise matches his shirt and our curtains!
😍 We bought Addie a year ago today! What a crazy, incredible year it’s been! Swipe through to see some of the transformation she went through. We love our home. 🖤 #addietheadventurebus
Kitchen cabinets are in! As much as I wanted to diy, I have always been enamored by Ikea cabinets with their soft close drawers, ease of install and their adjustability. This is actually my fourth time building an Ikea kitchen but it's the first time we're actually going to get to use it ourselves!
We are having our own doors and side panels made so once installed you won't see anything Ikea until you open a drawer. And let's be fair building cabinets would have taken me months so this is definitely a happy medium.
We have a hook up on some quartz countertops and I'm dying to outsource a little bit of this work when I can afford it. What do you think about quartz counters in a bus? Ridiculous?! #buslife#skoolie#skooliekitchen#busconversion#buslifeadventure#skoolieconversion#skooliegram#familyfreedomfun#gilliganphantom#busconversionkitchen#mybuslife
We love seeing the world through Anaya's eyes, we nurture and encourage the magic that she sees everywhere. We want her to feel the love that we have for her every second of the day by always being there when she needs us.
On days where we lose our patience, feel tired and energetically low, rather than beating ourselves up we accept this as part of our human experience and show ourselves kindess, knowing that tomorrow is a brand new day.
Hey new friends, thanks for all the messages and love. We have a had a super long day. Catch you all tomorrow 😘💛🏹
We cracked. Yep. We got to the point where we just had to get away. We hadn't used our camper trailer for 2 years because we are constantly saying 'don't go away, use the money for the bus' but reality is, you can't put all the things you love on hold.

Hangs at the bus, so far have been our favorite way to spend time. ✨
Cheers to the weekend! 🌞
Photo series: "Reuse" - Photo 10
Featured in this photo: A pair of thrift store boots bought for $7.00
Authentically retro sunglasses from the 80's that my parents had lying around + didn't wear anymore.
Fun fact: They have bifocal lenses in them for reading... I just try to ignore it! 😂
A @planetarydesign reusable coffee/tea mug... because fuck disposable coffee cups! 🖕🏼
An REI jacket that was left unclaimed in a lost-and-found box in my mom's high school classroom. ♻️ #refusesingleuse#reuse#upcycle#thrift
The one thing I really struggled with artistically on this build, was to properly document the progress. I was indoors for much of the interior, and shooting with fluorescent lighting isn’t something I’ve done a lot of, or like doing. So, I’d take pictures and send to friends and update my story. I really am trying to up my photography skills, but for the sake of documenting this on IG and for the enthusiasts, here are some rough and real pics. And for those with a question, the answer is on youtube. I haven’t really deviated from building the bus, so if you follow along from start to finish, you’ll see exactly what we did. If you read this far, comment a tool emoji like a 🔨🔧 and tell me what you’re building or what your next project is. 🧰

Today marks 5 months since we packed up our necessary belongings from our Denver bungalow and hit the road! A lot has happened since then, but our enthusiasm for life on the road exploring the many wonders of this planet is still the same! 💚

Slow mornings, slow afternoons, oh and slow evenings...vanlife is one cruuuuuisy way of living, now our #tinyhouse Is nearly complete it really is starting to feel like home 💛
It may be a chippys worst nightmare but we call it home and Gypsy is going to see us all around Australia, wherever we feel called upon to go too.
We started #vanlife because of a deep knowing that there is more to life.. We wanted more from life, we didn't want to wait for retirement to explore Pacha Mama, we didn't want to be away from Anaya everyday whilst we work to pay of a mortgage.. This life of freedom, living in your home where ever you go, the beach, the national parks, the forests, the rivers.. all in the comfort of your #tinyhome.
It has been great hanging out with friends and family back home. Indiana even gave me a light dusting of snow and sun shine for my last full day here. Tomorrow my brother and I head south to Texas to then west to Arizona. The road is calling 🧘🏻♂️🧘🏻♂️🧘🏻♂️🚌🚌🚌🧘🏻♂️🧘🏻♂️🧘🏻♂️
Ketika mantan ngajak balikan kita bilang ''aku tidak akan pernah balikan aku masih ingat apa yang pernah kamu lakukan kepada aku" "Aku janji tidak akan mengulangi lagi kita akan mengulangi dari nol"
Masih percaya sama kata kata mantan yang kaya gitu. Itu semua modus dari mantan untuk menyakiti hati para mantan 😁

If we are in the bus, chances are at least one of us is in this spot. We love our bed so much we decided to put it in the living room 😂👌🏻 It’s turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve made as there is always something to look at or a kitty to entertain us 😻
