Why Us?

You've likely just found yourselves the most experienced, savvy and accomplished mentors in this lifestyle.

We consciously unplugged from the madness and hit the road as a family, back in 2017.  Leaving our rented house with zero savings, we worked hard to create the life we wanted for our family, totally fell in love with the travelling lifestyle and have been on the road ever since.  Literally, every single night in our vans, since leaving our brick home over half a decade ago, and that includes right through the last few years of this crazy world.

This lifestyle is no full-time holiday and we will tell you this (depending on your situation, it can be for some!), it didn't come easy to us.  We had no house to rent out and to this day, we do not want the ball and chain it comes with... being totally determined, we worked real hard to tap into our skills and the things we love doing, plus both stepped outside our comfort zones, all to make our dream happen and take back our time together... you can never make more of that stuff you know! 

Now nearly 6 years solid on the road we haven't looked back and have no plans to settle (just the thought of that actually feels uncomfortable).  So far we've adventured 27 countries through Europe, the Balkans and Turkiye, plus 4 greek islands, in our vans alone.

We're busy raising our two free spirited daughters along the way and together, we’ve personally rescued 2 puppies and raised them on the road too - Cooper from Greece and Leni from Turkiye.

Our rolling homes have been 3 very different vans: our ford motorhome, our self-built off grid 4x4 Sprinter and now our 7.5 ton truck.

Martin is a multi-skilled, electrically bias engineer, with over 26 years experience.  We know whats its like hunting for your perfect van, be it a self build already done out, a factory made motorhome or even that perfect chasis, to begin your own creation!  Viewing already built self-builds, is what lead us to doing our own van out... we saw some horror stories and wagons being mis-sold (so look hard, spend time and be cautious guys).  Building out our own home on wheels, we were super glad of Martin's skills, the van was over engineered if anything and it proved itself massively, making this the ultimate adventure rig.

 

We have been sharing our world with you all, giving everyone an insight into our life on the road.  When we ourselves, embarked on our nomadic way of life, there was no help available and now we help folks daily.  We are more recently seeing an increase in the need to simplify life and reconnect. Naturally, we only have a certain amount of time in our own days and want to help as many good people as we can, hence these consults have grown from this.

Life's for living folks and today is for life! 

We're glad you've found us, now come aboard!

Can we help you?

With years of true experience, on so many levels within this lifestyle, our clients come to us as we can offer a wealth of knowledge, that can only come from first hand experience living this way of life, for as long as we have. 

 

Typically our clients are:

  • serious about making the jump into full-time life on the road

  • on the brink of a build out or big upgrades

  • in the process of researching and investing in a new van or motorhome

 

All want support in highlighting and understanding options and possibilities of what lies ahead.

If none of the above are you, but you believe we can help, please get in touch... we are here!

How much is the best knowledge gonna cost me?

Van Journey Consults are available for £35 per hour.

We could literally chat for hours and have been known to do so, hence we now have to schedule!

Depending on the topic of discussion, you may find multiple sessions with us best, to digest the info and line up more questions.
