Top van life destinations.

Processed with VSCO with e3 presetOne of the best things about travelling in a van is having the ability to pull up anywhere (well almost) and stay for the night. There is a great sense of freedom in having no check in or check out times to abide by or no fixed itinerary. If a destination doesn’t live up to expectations (although I try to avoid setting expectations for this exact reason) you simply drive to find a better one. Although some nights are spent in less than ideal spots, most are not.

There has been countless occasions where we have stayed somewhere incredible and I’ve excitedly exclaimed “this is my favourite place so far!” only to find that the next night it has been easily beaten. It’s almost addictive going on the hunt to find superior places to park our van and call home for however long it may be. For us the idyllic spot is generally surrounded by nature, with a view of some sort of body of water whether it be a lake, river or the ocean and it’s an added bonus if it’s quiet. Surprisingly to tick the category of quiet doesn’t necessarily mean to camp alone and in fact many of our best nights of sleep have been when our location is shared with like minded van lifers. Oh, flat ground is also a must!

Here are my favourite van life destinations from our wonderful journey on the road, in no particular order. Which is your favourite? I would love to hear!
