There’s something so intriguing about riding off the grid and into some unknown territory with little worries. Chasing the surf, the mountains, the slopes– whatever it may be, there is a simple art in treading a minimalistic life of travel. I will never forget the incredible, minimalistic vans I witnessed while living in Bondi Beach, Australia. Surfers from around the globe gathered here with just basic necessities and a stoked mindset. It is quite wild how you can make a van so accessible to your everyday needs. Just the basics, nothing more. It’s the new way of creating your eco home. Take a look into these minimalistic, bohemian van buildouts that will inspire your next mobile adventure and take you into the full swing of van life.
Can you imagine backing up your van to the ocean and waking up to the roar of the crashing waves? Or opening your doors to the crisp morning snowfall by the slopes? Wishing you safe and enlightened travels on your next awaiting adventure.
In recent years, we have been witnessing a shift towards a modern nomadic lifestyle with a less-is-more mentality. One of of minimalism, sustainability, and adventure. Vanlifers are building their homes within a structure of simplification, utility, and mobility with a functional and dreamy aesthetic. With a vast array of modern off-the-grid conversions like solar panels and battery powered appliances, they are in fact reducing their carbon footprint.
Vanlifers experience exploring freely and simply, breakfasting in the mountains, and by sunset, preparing food in a converted and compartmentalized kitchen by the oceanside.
