Traveling is always cool, especially if you have a loved one next to you. Young Britons decided to change their usual way of life and went on a trip of a lifetime. They have already managed to travel around half the world in a minibus, which they turned into a cozy family nest on wheels. Learn about how the days of travelers who are in love with the road and with each other pass from our material.A British couple turned a minivan bought for 1,000 pounds (about 83,000 rubles) into a cozy house on wheels, in which they travel around the world. Young people have visited 25 countries, while their expenses are only 20 pounds (about 1,700 rubles) per day.
26-year-old Ben Fuery and 24-year-old Lucy Pinell from Cornwall spent 10 months and 5,000 pounds (about 413,000 rubles) on the conversion of a 2002 LVD Convoy minivan.
Ben used to work as a cook, and Lucy was an employee of an online rental platform. Now young people have turned into photographers and filmmakers.
The lovers have always loved to travel and dreamed of visiting Asia together and traveling around Europe. They bought an old van and transformed it using improvised materials.
For travelers, life on wheels is familiar and real. The couple fulfills their dreams and periodically returns to the UK to prepare for the next trip and save money.
In addition to an interesting pastime, this lifestyle is very economical, because lovers do not need to pay utility bills. Money is needed only for refueling a minibus, and electricity is generated thanks to solar panels. The couple collects drinking water from sources on the road.
Not everything always goes smoothly. Sometimes there are breakdowns, you always need to carefully monitor the cleanliness, but all the worries are completely overlapped by vivid impressions.
Usually young people return home to the UK in the summer to earn money for the next trip, and then they go on the road again.
The minivan allows Ben and Lucy to be completely independent: it has a gas oven and stove, heating and hot water, a shower, a refrigerator, a toilet and a solar battery on the roof, chargers and large water storage tanks.
The young people are planning their next trip to the Balkans. They are going to travel for 7 months and visit 13 countries before heading to Asia.For young travelers, a challenge is the meaning of being. Thanks to the difficulties experienced together, they have become more united, stronger and wiser. The couple sets a goal to continue traveling around the world, telling the stories of people who meet on their way, and sharing invaluable experience with those who one day also want to quit the usual routine and go on a journey of a lifetime.
Another couple of travelers decided to show everyone the fascinating beauty of the world. They travel around the world, taking pictures in a fabulous style in the middle of amazing locations. The young people named their project Follow Me Away and regularly share great photos and impressions from new trips.
