Hello people, hope you are all healthy… cold weather and so on. You have probably seen the whole vanlife/ camper van conversion/ etc etc video on YouTube or whatever (if you haven’t- do look it up, an endless source of entertainment, like watching kittens or puppies, the conversions and van tours, that is). Anyway, due do various reasons I often felt like I was a bit of a gypsy (we moved a lot when I was younger), so the whole camper/tiny house on wheels/ vanlife etc seemed very appealing to me. yes, there are pros and cons, that’s fine, everyone has their own opinion and no, depending on a country you live in vanlife type dwelling is not the cheapest nor the most legal means of housing. Anyway, this year I got one of the smaller and cheaper versions of a teardrop type camper (ie bed plus baggage place, hook up to the car, together with the car is around 2000 kg- normal driving license etc). Well, the camper itself is actually (surprisingly) comfy to sleep in, even my dog likes it too. WARNING: if you are as “blonde” in parking trailer type thing as I am- don’t get this type. (Now there are automatic robot driving things available on larger and more expensive campers, fyi). Luckily it is light enough that I can basically push it by myself into a particular parking spot if need be. A real advantage for ME personally of traveling with a camper instead of booking a hotel room is that the campsites I have stayed in this summer had MUCH cleaner bathroom and shower facilities than the 250 euro hotel room I stayed in to attend a friend’s wedding. I have a thing about clean showers, especially moldy tile junctions etc- campsite seems like a better choice. Same for my own pillow/ sheets etc, I know when and how I have washed them. And today I watched a video of a certain Korean guy who made a show of how cool and comfy it is to do a car camping with whole bunch of interesting gadgets (ok, it is cool). But as I watched his video the only thing in my mind was “how lonely”. I live near a large forest, not concrete jungle, perhaps that’s why I don’t get the whole travel somewhere to camp in nature thing… What do you think?
