An In-Depth Look At The Reasons To Live A Van Life

19 Jul 2019 | Cherry Cai

Van life is a movement where people are letting go of the trappings of modern life and hitting the road. Vanlife Diaries by Kathleen Morton, Jonny Dustow and Jared Melrose interview and feature a range of people who did exactly that. Through stunning visuals, narrative captions and interviews, Vanlife Diaries celebrates the beauty of the nomadic lifestyle and the vanlifer community. It seeks to inspire and open a window into the ‘why’s and ‘how’s of living and working on the road.

We’ve provided sneak peeks into the Vanlife Diaries that show the format of the beautiful book and the kinds of stunning visuals that you can expect. This book is perfect for the modern gypsy who dream of taking their own life on the road, or those who want a different perspective and some inspiration to chase their dreams, and a new kind of work-life balance that can only be achieved in this modern day and age.

The book is divided into sections on reasons for living a van life, we've given you pages from three of these sections.
