Going places in tiny spaces

This is our tiny travel blog and now vlog all about van life, sail life, hiking, camping, and minimalist travel adventures. We are exploring big by traveling small.

What started off as a van life blog documenting three journeys across three continents in three different vans, today includes much more. Here you’ll also find camping trips, hikes, off-the-beaten-path travel destinations, and, most recently, stories from our foray into sail life, on our little sailboat, Whisper.

Most of all, this page is about traveling to tiny destinations you may not have heard have, and it’s about getting there through slow, self-directed travel, regardless of the means.

We try to take the path less traveled, seeking out unique experiences, though we never shy away from a bucket list destination either.

Our travel style is minimalist, budget-friendly, outdoor-focused, and environmentally conscious.

If some or all of that resonates with you, you are likely to find something worth reading here.

Meet The Vanabonds

Out of a love of travel, we met one snowy Christmas night in Estonia. Eighteen months later, we quit our day jobs in search of a more nomadic lifestyle.

Although we haven’t looked back, we have learned a lot along the way. About places, about people, and about different ways to travel tiny. Hopefully, we have something worth sharing.

Thanks for wandering with us,

Eddie and Kelli
