Pineapple (that cat over there) has been such an absolute angel on the road. I was very nervous about bringing her with us but she’s really just been sleeping and chasing birds and exploring all of the little nooks in the van... she’s been so brave and I’m so proud of her.

Excuse the poor quality, these ones were taken on mobile rather than a proper camera. Will never make that mistake again😂
This was the first day of getting the van, excited and keen to get stuck in, the first task was taking out the bulkhead between the cab and the cargo area. In this specific van it is split into two panels and came out after undoing a few nuts. This opened the van up a bit and let light in from the cab.
Once the bulkhead was removed I started ripping up the old carpet which was glued down with spray adhesive. This revealed tiny screws that had been used to hold the wooden boards into smaller wooden planks beneath. Removing these screws allowed for the boards to separate and be taken out of the van.
The last shot is from the following night after the side panels had been taken out and the van had been cleaned up a bit internally.
Die Temperaturen fallen plötzlich rapide, was sich für einen November ja auch gehört. Also wird es für viele von uns wichtig, das WoMo winterfest zu machen. Denn nichts ist ärgerlicher, als wenn man im Frühjahr los will und aus dem Wasserhahn nichts raus kommt, weil die Leitungen über den Winter eingerissen sind.
Es gibt einiges zu tun:
* räumt alles aus den Schränken, vor allem die Lebensmittel
* öffnet alle Schranktüren, vor allem den Kühlschrank und legt ein Trockentuch hinein
* alles säubern
* Polster evtl. aufstellen oder etwas drunter legen
* Batterie aufladen
* Dichtungen evtl. mit Pflegemittel behandeln
* ganz wichtig: öffnet bitte alle Wasserleitungen! Dazu gehören Heizung, Frisch- und Abwassertank, alle Hähne (Dusche, Bad, Küche)
* von außen reinigen und ggf. konservieren, Unterbodenwäsche
* Gashähne zudrehen
* externe elektrische Geräte herausnehmen
* Frostschutzmittel für die Scheibenwischanlage einfüllen
* Winterdiesel tanken
* Handbremse lösen
Da unser Globe zum Glück innenliegende Tanks hat und winterfest ist, sind viele der Schritte nicht notwendig. Da ich den Globe auch als Alltagsauto nutze, lasse ich die Schranktüren z. B. geschlossen. Das Raumklima bleibt aber durch die Nutzung erhalten. Man kann auch die Heizung auf z. B. 8° C einstellen und durchlaufen lassen. Ein doppelter Boden unter dem gesamten Wohnbereich mit guter Isolierung ermöglichen eine ganzjährige Nutzung.
Weiter geht es für alle, die noch keinen Globe-Traveller fahren, 😉 bzw. die ihren Camper in den Wintermonaten nicht nutzen. .
* Wohnmobil regelmäßig bewegen
* zwischendurch lüften
* Batterie nachladen
Das sind zwar einige Punkte, die aber doch wichtig sind! Also: viel Spaß beim Herbst-Putz!

When you wake up from an afternoon hammock nap to the smell of fresh veggies baking in the oven and you realize how big your daughter is getting when Mom is showing her how to chop tofu with a real knife!

#tbt da chegada ao Ushuaia!Depois de 10 dias de estrada, desde São Paulo ( com direito a uma parada de 3 dias em Floripa para escalar com o @llpolite ), Safira e eu, no dia 21/12/2017 finalmente chegamos no fim do mundo. Uma grande de etapa da realização do maior sonho da minha vida. Vou parar de escrever senão eu choro ( a pessoa aqui chora até vendo desenho animado, rsrs).
Minnesota best kept secret 🤫
This photo was part of a series from an engagement shoot. We had a killer time hiking around and capturing some great images for @robertomiller and @alexisxxnoelle

Breakfast with a view part ✌🏼
Although Descend was definitely the highlight of our trip, other parts of Oregon stole our hearts too. Smith Rock was one of those places. With those jagged rocks jutting up straight to the sky, we felt like we were in another world
When we first started out we spent hours brainstorming social media names, content ideas, strategic plans, the whole thing. We had been successful growing businesses via social platforms why not our journey. Social media stardom wasn’t the end where we saw ourselves, I don’t think many true #vanlifers have that goal. It was just what you did to see where you’d land. You’re doing this crazy new thing and in those moments it feels important to tell the world what they are and to inspire them. As soon as we moved into the van all of that changed. The set up for photos, the constant commenting, liking, following other people, the hashtags, it just seemed silly. Work was home and home was work. We did all of this to just take it day by day, you can’t do that if three days out of service means an upset sponsor, or the loss of a chunk of followers that took weeks to grow. And while I respect my peers, we’re here and now people. We do the things and take the photos for ourselves. Of course, I do hope we inspired some people even if tiny mobile living isn’t your thing, maybe a beautiful sunset with the one you love and your favorite book is ♥️ #van#tinyliving#vanlife#vanlifediaries#explore#escape#adventure#neverstoptraveling
*WARNING - really bad dance performance. This video may offend professional dancers* .
Last night I had a weird dream about The Prodigy. Not sure why, haven’t listened to their music for ages. This morning, Spotify suggested me their new album. It’s a sign, let’s talk about roadtrip music.
It’s not about the music on my playlists, it’s about songs that I connect to countries, songs that trigger strong memories.
The beginning of the trip - China, Japan, Russia (part 1) I didn’t really listen to music. But starting with Mongolia there are songs, that I connect to this roadtrip x a certain country & moment. 🎵Mongolia: I never listen to Ed Sheeran unless I have to. But I will ever connect ‘Shape of you’ to this spontaneous ‘dance’ (I can only dance like this, pardon) in the Mongolian grasslands, while waiting for visas and car papers. Makes me smile, every time I hear it. .
🎵 Russia (part 2) & Central Asia: I’ve heard so much different music - but one artist and his remarkable voice was ever present: Jah Khaleb and especially his song ‘Medina’. No clue what he raps about but it sounds pretty cool and it was everywhere...in cabs, restaurants, cafés. 🎵Tajikistan (the only exception in Central Asia): I arrived early in the morning at the Tajik border in almost 5000 meters altitude. It looked unreal, like an abandoned space station - and before I’ve encountered one of the badass border patrol guys up there, I’ve heard Tajik music coming from massive speakers...in the middle of snow and mountains. Unforgettable. 🎵Azerbaijan: Downtown Baku I’ve heard loud coming music from a car. First thought it’s Turkish rap, to realize it’s German. Massive beat, lyrics mmmhhh. ‘Tamam Tamam’ from Summer Cem. I guess it sounds great, if you don’t understand German.
🎵Georgia: Met a girl who studies Opera Singing and we went to a super market to buy some drinks. Inside they were playing ‘Back to Black’ from Amy Winehouse. So, while strolling through the shelves, we were singing along, she just perfect, me like I dance. Very memorable.

Tomorrow is the start of the largest Tiny Home Festival of the year- the St. Augustine Florida show! 🙌
There will be 80+ Tiny Homes there, so naturally there will be a diverse collection of sizes, build styles, cost & completion levels between the homes. 🏠🚙 •
At our first festival back in June, we brought & showed our our van even though it had no bathroom yet🚽, no colorful paint💙💛, and no fancy ceiling (it was reflective!)...and needless to say we were nervous bringing it! But thankfully we did, and we saw how gracious and accepting the Tiny Community is. They cheered us on in our build👏, celebrated every new addition we've made to our conversion, and never once made us feel "lesser" because our home was incomplete, smaller, or cheaper done. 🤗
It's so important to remember to be proud of what you've put in to your own home, and avoid the joy-stealing temptation of comparing yourself (or your home!) to others :) We can't wait to meet everyone tomorrow and see the hard work they've put into their homes! ⚒
And...if you're in the area and can come see for yourself- see @unitedtinyhouse for ticket details! 👀

I miss the “17 degrees, blue sky and sun” type of autumn 💭
Snow was ripping sideways, the clouds were moving through the valley at lightning speed, and the road was stupidly slippery. I actually jumped out of the van and asked @thrujoelslens to do a quick lap so I could get some images of the van on the road. This was the only frame I took as the clouds engulfed me and view in seconds. We only got a little glimpse, but she sure was pretty!
