Going Places in Tiny Spaces, Van Life, Sail Life, and Minimalist Travel

This is our tiny travel blog.

It’s all about 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 find camping trips, hiking guides, off-the-beaten-path travel destinations, and most recently, stories from our foray into sail life, on our little 29 foot Beneteau, Whisper.

Most of all this page is about slow, self-directed travel and self-guided adventure, regardless of how we get there.

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 for travel, we met one snowy Christmas night in Estonia. Eighteen months later, we quit our day jobs in search of a more nomadic lifestyle. We set out to try our hand at overlanding in a converted van (#vanlife).

We hope, through our wanderings, to inspire you, to travel, to explore, and to get out there and experience the world.

Thanks for wandering with us!
