Most of us love travels. Each of us does it in a million of different ways. While I would call our caravanning & vanlife experience an easy one, there are people seeing such travels as beyond possible. Tatra Around The World is an expedition trying to get as far as possible with an expedition truck — to circle the globe around.
We travel a lot with our two kids. The most common question people ask us what we do about the education. I must admit that before the kids were old enough to go to school, we thought our road trips would simply end when the kids would need to attend first grade, and we‘d just go back to our normal lives. But, it didn’t happen! Let’s see to keep living this rewarding lifestyle with kids.
New campervan blew a fresh wind to our travels. After one autumn dinner with inspiring American travel families we have finally switched to a van. The length of our home on wheels shrunk from bold 12 metres to 6 metres. And we returned to Turkey, Thasos & explored Halkidiki for the spring. It was mind blowing.
We truly love traveling. It’s always been the highlight of our lives. The vehicles we ride on have changed over the years, though. The biggest upgrade to our family travels yet is here. After 7 years of exploring Europe on a camping trailer, we’re buying something radically new — a van.
We’ve criss-crossed Europe from west to east on our travel trailer and car. Then, we’ve tried to gear up for something more adventurous. After checking out vans and pickup campers made by various manufacturers, we fell in love with the idea of a rooftop tent for our 4×4 pickup truck.
After travelling the Europe south from Morocco to Turkey we’ve returned to our favourite country & geared up. Spain offers delicious food, positive people, best weather and a million of attractions including the almighty sea & beaches. This year was the most relaxed and we’ve tried a rented house & shared apartment.
Since we went on our first ever caravan trip, we’ve been on the search for what I call the “absolute, zen happiness”. Honestly, while we’ve been travelling, there have been many moments that we’re not proud of. Still, there were many more experiences that we cherish in our hearts. After six years of traveling, we can say we’re in zen. Let’s dive into the journey of a middle class couple, turned into a hippie family.
We parents and our children have traveled a lot, so we could say that we are that strange family from a caravan. But for us, we are still Vita, Renata, Magdalenka and Viktorka Valka. Vita works as a freelance User Interface designer, and our journey has led me to the profession of a virtual assistant.
I’m sure that if I haven’t read these books and seen these films, I wouldn’t be where I am now. They were a fuel that empowered my search for a better life, for more balanced values and feasible targets. Books & Movies are like a power-blast in a video game. They speed things up.
