That’s our motorhome, a Bessacarr E560 named Barnaby.

Back in 2018, we sold most of our belongings, packed up the rest of what we owned into our tiny home on wheels & have been living a location-independent lifestyle ever since!

we love to take the wilder route

From hiking & wild swimming to road trips & cycling, we love spending time in nature. It’s not just for the pretty scenery either, being outdoors has helped us to connect with Mother Earth in ways we never dreamed possible.

we just can’t calm those itchy feet

If there’s one thing that recent times have taught us, it’s not to take anything for granted.

Exploring the world is not only awesome but it educates us, broadens our minds & helps us to grow.

We are so grateful for how travel has enriched our lives.
