IN-BETWEEN TIMES | I’ve been spending my holidays in Southern California. It was not what I’d planned for but it’s probably what I needed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m a southwest desert girl and with the first snows in Utah had intended on heading straight for southern New Mexico, the state that has my heart. Instead I’ve been parked in the driveway of friends who’ve taken me in, earning my stay by gopher-proofing their garden and praying away unusual amounts of rain so that I can finish some work on my trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having lived in rural areas for most of my life I’m allergic to most things about California: the congestion and fast driving, the sticker shock at the gas pump. As soon as leftovers got put away after Thanksgiving I couldn’t wait to get out of here. Instead I’ve been charmed by all the things there are to love about this state. The fragrance of eucalyptus in the mornings. Lakeshores filled with migrating birds. And strangers who lead you in traffic when you realize you forgot your phone and navigation at home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I used to struggle a lot with life’s in-between times, seeing them as obstacles to get through to reach the good stuff I’d been planning for. Until I realized that they’re good stuff, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t ask any longer for a problem-free life. Only that the problems life brings me serve to deepen my love for it. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: Wherever you are is called Here.

We chose to

We chose to sleep in our camper for 21 nights in a row. . We chose to sleep in parking lots where it didn't cost anything to stay, but we also didn't have electricity. . And we're choosing to sleep out next Saturday, December 14th on a cold Minnesota night. . But we're making that choice because there are others in our community, and in yours, that are sleeping out because circumstances have led to them feeling out of options. . But organizations like @iocpinterfaith provide hope and help in these desperate circumstances. . From the IOCP website: "The funds we raise through the Sleep Out campaign help us deliver individualized services in the areas of family support, food, housing and neighborhoods, education and youth, employment, and transportation that help nearly 2,000 local families each year stabilize and strengthen in times of crisis." . We know many of you are not local to Minneapolis, but if you feel led, would you join us by donating to the Sleep Out campaign? . More details in stories. . . . #suburbanhomelessness #sleepout #sleepout2019 #interfaithyoubelong #babyitscoldoutside #makeadifference #takeaction #camperlife

I live in a van to experience new places without having to choose just one. I live in a van because I don’t want to pay rent. I live in a van because it feels like home. #VanCrush ~ repost from @michelle.lawrencee Caption inspired by @_gypsytribe_ . . . . . #vangirlsrule

thejourneyofgia. Back home in San Diego.  Gia was good to us on our little trip to Utah

Back home in San Diego. Gia was good to us on our little trip to Utah. We realized when we got back, it probably would have been a safer idea to test Gia out for the first time somewhere a bit closer, not 400+ miles away 😆. But everything went smoothly besides one minor set back of having to get towed out of mud. It taught us a valuable lesson of keeping a shovel in the van, more towels (Kenny was covered in mud) and several people suggested kitty litter as well. It was a good test trip to see the things that worked well and things we can upgrade to make it even better. . . #campervan #vanlife #camper #travel #homeiswhereyouparkit #camping #camperlife #roadtrip #t #vanlifediaries #van #vwt #vw #adventure #homeonwheels #campervanlife #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifers #vanconversion #vwbus #x #volkswagen #motorhome #projectvanlife #wanderlust #vanlifestyle #camperlifestyle #vanlifemovement #nature #bhfyp

WHERE DO WE START? New Zealand was one of the countries we wanted to visit the most. And so we were so excited when we landed in Auckland. After 5 days exploring Auckland, we picked up our rental campervan, which we named Lorna. She took us to the most beautiful places throughout the country and we turned into huge #camperlife fans. Our 3 months in New Zealand were peppered with breath-taking places, the nature is so amazing that we don't have words for it. We met wonderful people, played some unbelievable golf courses and enjoyed every second of our journey. As we returned Lorna, our mood was down as we realized that our time in New Zealand had come to an end. We will never forget our incredible time in New Zealand. But every end brings new beginnings. Good-bye New Zealand! G'day Australia! #putteringaroundtheworld #slowtravel #quickpars #travelingwithgolfbags #golfabonds
