Giving myself a reminder that ‘pushing yourself’ doesn’t always mean sport, physical activity or work......Today it is writing. It’s not a chore; I actually really enjoy writing. It’s not as if I am lacking in inspiration; there are plenty of things for me to write about and plenty of ideas swirling around my head. Sometimes it’s just hard to tell yourself to focus and try to get those swirling ideas down on the page in some sort of coherent manner. That’s been my biggest obstacle recently; I’ve had so many ideas, so many experiences and thoughts, but I’ve been struggling to apply myself enough to actually sit down, sift through, and produce something from them. And because of that, I haven’t actually written anything since March. I also think that a part of it is due to the fact I have become so at home in Chamonix. I have formed a network of friends and Chamily and a solid repertoire of activities. While it’s wonderful to always have options for something to do, it does mean that I neglect to spend time by myself. I think it’s important for everyone, but especially for me, to spend time alone. This has always been when I am most productive; when I thrive, when I find my motivation to organise, create and produce. Some of my best experiences in life, I have been alone, particularly while travelling. But after the social madness I have immersed myself in recently, I was beginning to forget how to be by myself and as a result started to lose focus on things that are important to me. But let’s hope things balance is being restored; I’m feeling content with my own company, motivated to write, create art and music. And to share! I am in the process of revamping and reviving my blog, hopefully with some new pieces on there in the next week. And maybe, just maybe, my vanlife vlog I have been planning, might finally surface......exciting times! #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifestyle #vanlifers #vanlifeeurope #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifeproject #projectvanlife #vancrush #homeiswhereyouparkit #lifeontheroad #campervan #campervanlife #vanlifeideas #vanlifemovement #vangirls #tinyhouse #vanconversion #selfbuild #homeonwheels #vandwelling #offgridliving #blogger

sometimes life puts you on a path you didn't want to be on, but somehow at the end of the path there is a opportunity that you would have never discovered before. #RoyalEnfield #rideout #ride #ridemore #ridepure #puremotorcycling #mountains #lifeontheroad #motorcycletour #nature
Well hey there 2019, it’s nice to meet you! Now let’s see what you have to offer. 2018 set the bar high, in fact it was undoubtedly the best year of my life so far, by a long way. It surpassed all expectations, and some of the experiences I’ve had over the past year will be with me forever. To sum it up in a few numbers: 11 countries visited, 45,000kms driven, 8 flights, 5 big bucket list ticks, 3 broken bones, 1 fear partially conquered, 3 festivals, so many new friends and fantastic people in my life, many new skills gained and others improved, uncountable incredible experiences, more fun and happiness than I’ve ever had and as far as I can think of, no regrets. Until now, I’ve never been able to say I’ve had a perfect year before, and obviously there were some days that weren’t as good as the rest. But when I think back over the last year, I am overwhelmed with happiness. I made some fairly significant decisions this year, all fairly spontaneously and some of which could have been a disaster; quitting my jobs, leaving behind everything and everyone I knew to move to a different country on a whim where I knew next to no one, spoke none of the language and didn’t know how my van would cope with winter conditions it was not designed for. These things and more could have sent my word crashing down around me if they had turned out differently. But luckily, they didn’t and the fun gets to continue. So thankyou obviously to my perfect Effy van, without her, this year and the decisions I made literally wouldn’t have been possible and also to each and every person that has had a positive impact on my life this year, everyone I’ve shared good times and made memories with. You’ve given me some of the best ones so far. Shall we make some more now? Happy 2019 everyone! Enjoy your hangovers! #homeiswhereyouparkit #lifeontheroad #homeonwheels #tinyhouse #vanlife #vanlifers #vandwelling #vanlifeeurope #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifestyle #vanlifeproject #projectvanlife #vanlifemovement #vanlifeideas #vangirls #vancrush #vanconversion #campervan #camper #camperconversion #selfbuild #chamonix #vanliving #offgridliving #campervanlife #camperlife #vans
Another day another place and another place to rest my feet in this very very hot weather!! #keepingcool #dipinthespa #lifeoutthebackofthevan #lifeontheroad #barefeetarebest #lovebeingbarefoot #
To say goodbye can be difficult for many people. When you live traveling you are able to meet so many nice persons. You laugh together, share beautiful moments and thoughts. But then comes the moment when the roads split and goes to different directions. We didn't see that as a loss rather the opposite an enrichment. We know we will come back or meet again an other time at an other place. . . . #neverstopexploring #traveladdict #livingthedream #nomad #lifewelltravelled #homeiswhereyouparkit #nomadlife #lifeontheroad #liveadventurously #nomads #livetoexplore #nomadic #liveforthemoment #locationindependent #nomadstories #wanderlust #fernweh #theglobewanderer #wanderer #travel #ourfreelife #vanlife #vanlifediaries #campervan #campvibes #viajero #reise #reisen #roadtrip #ontheroad
Otway Fly Treetop walk 🌳🌿. Perched 30m above the ground and 600m long the walking track gives you a sugar gliders view of the rainforest! There's also a spiral viewing tower which takes you to 47m above the rainforest floor 😳 It's the highest and longest of it's kind in the world!! Sienna and Wazza were brave enough to go all the way out on the cantilever which sways with the forest. A bit too scary for Violet & I! On the forest floor whilst walking to and from the treetop walk there are fairy houses scattered around for the kids to find. The girls thought it was a fairy wonderland ✨. #wanderingbeachbums #visitvictoriaaustralia #otwayflytreetopwalk #holidayswithkids #lifeontheroad #homeiswhereyouparkit #lapofoz #wanderlust #discoveraustralia #exploreaustralia #lifeontheroad #togetherweroam #kidswhotravel #travelaustraliawithkids #tawk #travellingaustraliawithkids #caravanningwithkids #caravanningaustralia
Cheers to all wonderful people we have met on the road so far! This great couple we helped out a little while they were stuck in sand next to us, wanted to cook some seafood for everyone. We made a campfire to warm us while we enjoyed a delicious feast. Thank you ❤️

Maybe the best coffee drinking experience of my life....? Amazing Italian coffee, the premium company of basha_chx and narietta the best views of Mont Blanc, the massif and the Valle d’Aosta, all from a casual 3469m. Thankyou skywaymontebianco for providing us with the perfect thing to do on a beautiful sunny day when the skiing conditions in Chamonix are poor to say the least. It felt so amazing to get up this high for the first time in soooo long. After the midi being out of action all summer and the skiing conditions up there not making it worth going up yet, it’s been 6 months since I’ve been up above 3000m.....and boy did I miss it! Nothing fills me with joy more than gazing out in to the distance with nothing but mountains to see for miles. This is my happy place!! #mountains #mountain #mountainlife #chamonix #courmayeur #skywaymontebianco #mountainview #montblanc #thisismyhappyplace #naturelovers #vanlife #vanlifeeurope #vanlifediaries #vanlifemovement #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifedreams #vanlifestyle #vanlifers #projectvanlife #vancrush #lifeontheroad #italy #france #mountaingirls #winter #snow #paradise #snowgirl #altitude

They say you don’t need a map but some times it’s good to get your hands on one to find points of interest in the local area you may not have discovered otherwise. ~ We are a shocker for FOMO (afraid of missing out) so at each town we generally stop in at the local tourist desks and get a bit of info on local attractions. We’d hate to find out weeks later there’s a wicked waterfall we missed or an unreal hiking trail we never knew about 🤔 • • • • • #exploremore #australia #seeaustralia #exploringauatralia #takemetoaustralia #travelstoke #camperlife #campvibes #roadtrippin #lifeontheroad #coastlife #vanlifediaries #livingontheroad #liveauthentic #minimalist #travelstoke #instagood #australiagram #weareexplorers #travellust #simpleliving #coupleswhotravel #travelpassport #travelgram #surftrip #surfing #visitnsw #discoversydney #sydneyaustralia
Up in the mountains, in the lovely Casares, enjoying these views. I just sat on this little peak as the vultures and eagles circled above and below, with the sound of low flying vultures passing not that far above my head. . . . . . #casares #spain #mountains #shotoniphone #roadtrip #lifeontheroad #explore #goexplore #roamtheplanet #lovetotravel #wonderfulplaces #travel

Après une ascension fastidieuse en van, nous sommes arrivés près du lac de Morasco. Une petite randonnée ensuite pour rejoindre le bord du lac dans la neige à 2000 mètres d'altitude environ.

😂 It can’t all be fun and games 😂 On a serious note though, we even have a list of most hated motorways... 1. M5 2. Parts of the M6 at rush hour 3. M25 towards London at any time of day or night 4. M4 (because of the endless diversions at night) #lifeontheroad #calan #calanband #calanfolk #tourlife #bandlife #musicians #folkmusic #folkmusician #motorways #driving #folk #trad #traditionalmusic #tradmusic
WORKING DAY 💨 . Un guerrier n’abandonne pas ce qu’il aime, il trouve ce qu’il aime dans ce qu’il fait. (Socrates) . Crois-tu réellement que j’aime bouffer de la poussière et me mettre les doigts en sang pour poncer, poncer et re-poncer ? Tu as le droit de te poser la question, je me la suis posée également… . 3 jours de ponçage seul face à ma conscience, pour seule compagnie la musique de l’abrasif sur la tôle. Je n’aime pas particulièrement cette tâche ingrate, difficile, fastidieuse, monotone ! . Oui mais voilà, tout comme toi je dois entretenir mon habitat, l’embellir pour aller encore plus loin avec lui… il est ma seule possession et a toujours été là pour moi, y compris dans les moments les plus sombres. . Peu importe la difficulté du moment. Tu dois aimer ce que tu fais. La vie n’est pas simple, nous ne vivons pas dans un monde idéal, mais à toi seul incombe de trouver des sources de plaisir dans ton quotidien ! . Oui, je ponce ! Les journées passent vite, tellement je suis heureux d’imaginer le regard ébahit de mes enfants lorsqu’ils découvriront Marcel dans ses nouveaux habits ! Heureux de m’imaginer sur les routes, fier comme un artaban au volant de mon Marcel. HEUREUX ! Juste parce que j’ai la satisfaction de le faire moi-même, d’aller encore une fois au bout d’un rêve un peu fou… . Tu as le droit de douter imaginant encore le long chemin pour arriver au but… mais ce chemin tu l’as commencé, tu es en train de l’accomplir. Ta plus grande force, ton plus grand courage est là, d’avoir commencé ! . Curieusement j’aime poncer ce camion, j’aime rêver à ce qu’il sera une fois terminé ! J’aime me dire que c’est une chance incroyable que de pouvoir réaliser mon rêve… j’aime tout simplement ce camion, mais çà tu ne peux pas le comprendre… . Et pourtant regarde bien, il ressemble a un vieux van, percé, fatigué, grimé comme un boxeur après un long combat. Putain je l’aime ce camion ! Il est beau… Il est ma motivation ! . #vanlifediaries #vanlifesociety #citroenhy #citroenhvan #vanconversion #vanbuild #vanlifeeurope #rollinghome #vansweetvan #homeonwheels #campervanlifestyle #vanliving #lifeontheroad #vanlifedreams #campervanconversion #campervanbuild
We skipped the #fieldoflights in Uluru last year, so were excited to see them set up in #albany . They are free to view here and are set up until Anzac Day. It’s really magical to see. I only took my iPhone with me, so will have to go back another night with a real camera & tripod to get some better photos 📸 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #fieldoflightsalbany #amazingalbany #amazingsouthcoast #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa
In my opinion art is one of the best places to start in understanding a culture. Whether it be painted on a wall in the street, hung in a gallery, or simply on display in someone’s home. These two examples here caught my eye during my stay in #chianti #italy . . . . . . #badiaacoltibuono #straightfromitaly #exploringitaly #abbey #lifeontheroad #art_spotlight #bw ⚫️⚪️

Fortune Favours The Brave Well, after spending the night on a garage forecourt the other day, more than delighted on how the week has ended. We’ve come a long way since we were here in the summer, and I can safely say we didn’t expect to be back here to have the pleasure of winter conditions in Grindelwald. Today we’ll be getting the sledge out and building a snowman or two.

Kata Tjuta is a lot less know than Uluru but bigger (500m) and even more interesting.
All of the little visitors today in the @uprootandroam bus at #skooliepalooza2019 ! The tiniest one barfed in our bus but he was so cute, we'll let it slide. #skoolie #busconversion #tinyhome #minimalism #tinyliving #buslife #homeiswhereyouparkit #schoolie #adventure #lifeontheroad
Great way to finish off a day at the beach - Drinks at the marina looking at all the boats. Always think how much fun having one of these would be but a wise person once said if it floats or eats while you sleep, it’s a bad investment!

-Four Seasons at Hermit's Peak- I haven't done my thing in a while... well, one of my things... one of my main main things. I'm a man of many interests. And I easily keep my self entertained. I rarely get bored being by myself. In many ways I feel as though I might've been suited to the life of a hermit. But many of my interests aren't characteristic of a hermit. I like to share my various forms of art. And some I keep to myself. These winter nights keep me inside though I miss being under the stars. Soon enough. I'll be capturing more views.
Thanks for all the love on my sunrise shot this morning.. this was facing the other direction 😁 such contrasts but equally as beautiful 👌🏼❤️couldn’t not share
Thank you for all the birthday love! I had the best day ever! My parents flew in and surprised me with bringing my nephew (thanks for sharing him Nicole!). We then took them to see Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood, and out for lunch with some of my best friends David and Olivia Blair. It truly doesn't get much better than this! PS....remember my birthday present of 10% off retail OR a gift set of freebies if you get a wholesale account with doterra goes on through next Friday!!
I miss my family. I miss having them around. Living on the road is LONELY! It’s hard yet beautiful but I miss my family. I miss having my own space. RV parks come with a fine lack of privacy and a list of rules....yet a freedom it’s not your land to worry about. This lifestyle is a continuum of catch 22. With my grandma recently passing, I’m wanting roots again. Roots where my daughter grows up with family and memories to last her a lifetime. Roots where I measure her height in her bedroom doorway. Roots where her kindergarten and senior prom picture are in the same spot. Until than, I’ll grieve with this beautiful stubborn, strong willed 3 year old on my lap while we watch the lion king. Because my loves, we always have two options..... we can sit and wallow over what we don’t have, or as we have been taught,....,make some damn lemonade #youareabadass #thisisus #lifeontheroad #linelife
