25 Best VAN LIFE Instagram photos [2018-2019 edition]

Updated May 6, 2018 / João Leitão / 22 Comments / / Reading time 2 minutes


Everyone who knows me acknowledge the love I have for driving.

The pleasure of traveling while behind the wheel is for me, one of the best ways to explore the world.

I don’t quite know if it is the sense of open road freedom, having the ability to stop wherever I feel or the sensation of physically taking myself from one place to the next.

Being a natural born driver, I have driven cars in more than 50 countries altogether. Some of my top memories are driving in Iceland, Russia, or Afghanistan!

Even wilder, I participated in the infamous Central Asia Rally – a crazy banger car rally that has a bunch of mad people driving from Europe all the way to Kyrgyzstan.

You know what? I do own two vans.

I actually made a few, month long trips with my old van.

I hope sometime soon I will be able to go on more trips with my new campervan.

Due to particular interests, I’ve actually spent some time searching for pictures holding the #vanlife hashtag. After a few months bookmarking my favorites, I can now make a small list of « Best Instagram #VANLIFE photos for 2018 ».

I hope you enjoy.
