What’s your FAVOURITE aspect of #vanlife ? 🙌 For us, it’s the way it slows us down and reminds us what really matters in life: to enjoy every element of the journey, no matter the destination. 👏 What better place to do so than sunset at Blue Mountains National Park?! 👊 You’re certainly doing it right, @torischoller! Spring is the perfect time to slow down and return to nature. If not from Tori, take it from those who joined the Follow the Sun relay, an endearing journey featured in our Spring issue -- available at the link in our bio now! 🌿
Day 29: 😍
What did the Hurricane say to the coconut tree?
‘Hold on to your nuts, this is no ordinary blow job’ 😜 - evidence would suggest that the coconut tree in question did not hold on to his nuts tight enough.
Frisch, gesund & lecker muss es sein!
Kochen ist unsere absolute Leidenschaft. Daher war schnell klar, dass wir viel Platz für die Küche verwenden werden.
Unser kleines Highlight ist das Gewürzregal.
Die Gläser sind in Löcher eingesetzt, deren Umrandungen mit Dichtungen beklebt sind, sowie mit einer Leiste von unten gekontert. Sie fallen also weder durch, noch klappern sie :) Ist Euch kochen auch so wichtig?
Was sind eure Highlights in der Küche?
A question we get asked a lot is where to we store our clothing? 👗 •
The majority of our clothing actually fits in those two drawers down the side of the bed. The rest of our stuff(like winter coats, fancy outfits) lives in a suitcase under the bed along with all our linens and other bits and pieces.
Before we moved in we were a little nervous about the lack of space so we got rid of a lot of our stuff(which needed to be done anyway), only to find that we have way more storage than we actually need. 🤷♀️
On our first night in the van on our trip, we parked up in the village of Sotres to sleep up in the mountains. There was another British couple there in their van, so it was nice to chat, share plans and apologise for Elana’s potential crying!
Sotres is a sleepy little village with a few walkers staying in a couple of tiny hotels or rather guest houses and a couple of pubs. And there was a goat cheese museum.
I love the sweetly scented smoke from wood burning fires in the village homes in mountain areas, it reminds me of mountains we have stayed at around the world where there is a slightly different smell to the smoke, also the thoughts of wrapping up warm for an autumnal walk, then nesting in a cosy cottage fill my mind.
