From the French Morvan with Love, our very first #vanlife vlog! 😉
Hi dear folks!
Remember that we’ve announced our crazy plan with a campervan not too long ago? Well, since then we’ve spend many conversations about how we can at one hand convert our van in a sustainable way and at the same time use our short time before departure well by choosing for what’s fast, easy and basic. We’ve learned a lot from this process and feel open to share about our dilemmas and questions along the route of converting our van before we’ve hit the road. So enjoy watching our first vlog as vanlifers and stay tuned for more! Please let us know if you’d like to question our choices, want to exchange thoughts on one of the topics. What other tips or tricks can you share with us? We’re happy to hear from you!
Oh, and please subscribe to our newsletter at www.findingabetterwaytolive.com, cause we’d like to stay more independent from Facebook and Instagram ☺. We won’t spam you, but send our updates once every 6-8 weeks.

Our first steps into #vanlife… We want to take our project to the next level and get serious about finding our better way to live. The plan is to get a campervan and travel to Portugal to live and work in sustainable communities. Of course we’ll keep bringing you videos about all the interesting things we hope to discover.
In this video we tell you the 7 reasons why we want to go to Portugal in a campervan.

We visit Hans Roverts, who turned a ruin into a magical house using natural and salvaged materials. ‘Shortage stimulates creativity’ is his motto. He also does initiations to help boys become men. He calls his project ‘De Natuurlijke Tijd’ or ‘Natural Time’.
