Road trip realities

How we manage to live in the van

Leben pur! Unterwegs. Whether at icy -30 °C in the Lapland winter or in the sand of the Tunisian desert, whether in the left-hand traffic of England or along picturesque dream coasts of Europe. Whether in the hot summer of Turkey or in the "interesting" traffic of Georgia.

We report on frozen sliding doors, living together on 9.5 square metres, the inevitable sand in the desert and unforgettable ferry trips. We look at how we make do with little and still have way too much.

Hello dear ones

It's nice to see the podcast getting a new lease of life. I would be interested in a special episode on the difference between holidays and travel.

Kind regards
