Van Life: The Story Behind the Idea – Get yourself on the road!


Van Life When I hear talk about van life, I am almost always immediately reminded of surfers’ lives or hippies traveling on mythic road trips. With a notorious passion for driving, I am emphatic about heading out on the road and traveling. With the ability to decide where to go to and where to stop, I have a full sense of freedom while on the road. Van Life is most closely synonymous with freedom and total deliverance to free-range destinations. For independent travelers, it is quite possibly the best way to travel.

#Vanlife Kyrgyzstan: One-Month Road Trip with a Camper Van


Travel in Central Asia with a Camper Van Traveling with a campervan is always rewarding in terms of personal experience. The liberty of being able to go whatever road you impulsively chose, sleep anywhere you want and decide the exact time when to leave a certain place, makes this type of travel a perfect fit for the independent-minded and spontaneous traveler.

25 Best VAN LIFE Instagram photos


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.

#Vanlife Iraq: One-month road trip with a Camper Van

One month road trip in Iraq with a 4X4 Camper Van

Driving a camper van in Iraq Ok, I have to admit that I realize you might think that the idea of traveling in Iraq might sound a bit mad and how this article’s title “One-month road trip in Iraq with a Camper Van” sounds even crazier. Being fascinated by its history and culture, I traveled three times to Iraq so far, and I can’t get enough of it. During my one-year van life trip across Central Asia and the Middle East, I decided to return to this ancient country and visit some places where I haven’t been previously. #Vanlife Iraq For a long time forgotten, Iraq is now a mysterious country since we don’t hear people speaking about traveling there that often (due to the lack of security). Before the American invasion of its territory, Iraq was safe and had thousands of western tourists visiting it every year. Unfortunately, nowadays Iraq…
