Your soul is attracted to people the same way flowers are attracted to the sun, surround yourself only with those who want to see you grow.

WE ARE FLYING TO SPITSBERGEN TODAY!
In a little over a month of living and working in northern Norway, we have met some great people who help us even further on our journey! No only did we decide to stay in this region for the whole winter, we are stepping it up a notch the next two weeks!! We are cheating! We left our camper at our work-away host and today is the day that we will be on a plane together for the first time. We are heading for SPITSBERGEN!
We will visit world's most northern town, Longyearbyen. 3000 inhibitants, over 3000 polar bears. We have been offered a "job" working with husky dogs, preparing for the winter. A one time opportunity that we had to take!
To be continued...!
For a while I felt I was squeezing life to the fullest. Then, not moving, rooting, doing what I was supposed to do, I think I lost myself. I dont want to have roots, I want to use my feet, be as nomadic as possible and not get away from myself, being more closely linked to nature. Still in process, but let's see where this path leads me!
Durante un tiempo sentí que estaba exprimiendo la vida al máximo. Luego, estando quieta, enraizándome, haciendo lo que se suponía que tenía que hacer, asentando la cabeza, creo que me perdí a mí misma.. No quiero tener raíces, quiero usar mis pies, ser lo más nómada posible y no alejarme de mi yo más ligado a la naturaleza. Todavía en proceso, pero a ver donde me lleva este camino!
Did you check out our new range of incredible cards from @liamhenryphoto _ , featuring some epic shots from his travels - Frame it, give it to the aspiring traveller make it into a paper airplane ✈️Whatever you do, make sure you get it from us, exclusively - Here till 5.30pm 👌
Qué me decís de la vuelta? Para nosotros la peor parte de las escapadas en furgo. Da igual que te hayas ido una noche o mil, siempre hay cientos de cosas para lavar y subir a casa (para luego volver a bajar). O eso nos pasa a nosotros! No todo es maravilloso😝
Far away from any civilisation. The paths are rough and beautiful - and water crossings are a big part of it. Of course it rained that day and was freezing cold when we had to walk through the river to find the best spot for the crossing. Offroad action ✔ If you get stuck here - you have a problem ;)

Fernab von den offiziellen Straßen sind wir wirklich auf uns gestellt. Hier schängelte sich der Weg zuerst einen Bergpass hinauf, dann über eine weite Hochebene mit wenigen Jurten und viel "Nichts". Schließlich erreichten wir drei Flüsse, die aufgrund des Regens eine Menge Wasser führten. Da mussten wir durch. Und haben's irgendwann auch geschafft ;) Offroad action ✔

Maybe the only beach I've been to that hits all the marks... clear✅, sandy✅, calm✅, warm✅, and secluded✅. What a dream. Maybe that's why they named it Hotel Sueno. 😉 We were stoked about this beach. Baja is full of so many beautiful gems.
Freebird's transforming from cargo van to home has been a wild 3-month ride. This wouldn't have happened without the support from our Austin,Texas family. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped us along the way:
@sambo007 & @hilaryaiken -- thank you for opening up your home, garage, and driveway for the perfect workspace. We are soo grateful for your help with the project and good times had over the last few months. Also thanks to your neighbors who let us work until early morning without any complaints.
@minichkyle, @kaley_makes , & @laceyjeanb -- thanks for letting us take over your home for the last two days of our project...which turned into three...then four...then six days. Y'all helped so much in that crazy, final stretch.
@jorinluna -- thanks for spending your Austin trip constructing our sweet foyer, working on top of Freebird, and making our accent lighting extra badass. @kikogiraldo -- thanks for sanding down and oiling up our new countertops! We'll think of you every time we cook on our baby bottom smooth butcherblocks.
@johnleoweber & @emily_stack -- thanks for watching our boys & for coming over to give us a proper send-off. @samewilliamson thanks for bringing food and sweet dance moves to Saturday's work party. Cami thanks for always offering to help in any way possible. @miche4short & @candymoonshine thanks for coming to show support on Justin’s b-day! Everyone who we didn't mention-- thank you for doing all the things you did and sorry I'm too sleep deprived to remember the details.
Last but not least, thank you to @heartoftexasconversions for building and wiring our new home and for spending alllll night Saturday making sure Freebird was working smoothly and installing our roof rack.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! We love you all and will miss you on the road!! #vanlife has officially begun! ❤️🚐🌈✌🏼
Not the ordinary 9-5 but van life doesn't pay for itself. For those of you who ask, I'm a photographer and my husband's a filmmaker. We create stories for brands that align with our values and share them on social media. There's a lot of work that goes on BTS from filming to editing, finding wifi, and making sure we get enough solar power everyday to charge our equipment. We're self taught and do it because we love it. We make less money than our old jobs but we don't pay rent, gas is cheap, and what else do we need but sunshine and trees?
Went on a little joy ride in the #fulltimedreammachine tonight. She seems to be running like a champ! Our little picnic dinner on the back porch was pretty near perfection. I only wished we could have crawled into bed and just stayed the night right there. This warm fall weather is only going to last so long, so I have got to hustle my little fanny into high gear and get the interior renovated! Does anyone want to see before pics? 😬
We've found warmth again. Which is great since our current version of heating the van is piling three blankets on the bed & hoping it does the trick. But it's still sunny & warm down in Utah, to which we are ever thankful. The southwest seems to be made for us van dwellers.
