When I was a kid my grandpa Doug converted an old school bus into the ultimate traveller complete w/ stove, bbq, and a few beds. We would drive about 2hrs to the Down Under Summer Games with heaps of Kiwis and Aussies. It was so much fun, we would sing, dance, have a a hangi, go fishing, and watch the dads do a gumboot toss. It’s a down under thing haha.
This summer I’m planning to live out one of my dreams and so an RV adventure. GoRVing Canada has invited me and I’ve not set out the details but it’s going down. ? Or East, West, who knows!
The airstream section was my favourite. It’s totally hipster of me but I love the hyyge, cozy, retro of it all. I think I could do a summer living in one of these as long as I had wifi and freshwater. I’ve learned to need way fewer things over the last few years.
There are so many different kitchen/sleep/bathroom options, sizes, and pries in RVs. I knew there would be a lot to consider as a friend told me about the campingfunzone.com RV/trailer article she read and what you need to take into consideration but I was overwhelmed! I was impressed by the luxe of some, full kitchens, big fridge, queen beds.
Overheard a conversation of a few people talking about how they used to live on their boat and now are looking for a nice RV to travel land on. So cool! A few years back my mum & her bf lived on their boat for a year and sailed to the Bahamas. I’ve always admired the planning they put into that trip and that life.
Not sure where the RV adventure will take us this summer but I deff want to check out some of our the great parks and explore Canada. Parks Canada has waived all fees for 2017 in honour of Canada 150 and you can still get them here. I ordered one for Sean, Em, and I. The last time I went camping was to SandHill Park as kid with my parents. I am not really into the idea of camping now, but airstream or RV sounds like so much fun.
I’ve been looking at travel bloggers who’ve gone on RV adventures and there’s so many great photos. Love stories of people who decided to ditch city living, their house, and work remotely with their RVs & travel (LiveSmallRideFree, Aluminarium, Campendium). Lynne Knowlton also has a pretty amazing airstream for rent along with her treehouse.
I posted a short Facebook Live video from the RV show you can watch below. I had a bunch replies of people who are interested in this trip so I’ll be sure to keep you updated. Summer is a few months away but it warms my heart thinking about cottage life and this adventure.
When you think about you want to something for a long time and then it happens…
