Wild camping with a caravan is not the same as with a tent or an off-road. But you can still skip campsites from you itinerary and get on stellplatz free parking & sleeping spots that have their own spirit and are not full of people.
A ton changed in my priorities since 2012. I’ve fixed cashflow & step by step I’m fixing overall net worth. I’m paying attention to the fact, that life’s short and there’s a reason to not work as hard as it is technically possible.
Spring 2015. After trips to Croatia, Sicily and Turkey, we’ve taken our caravan family to the western part of Europe. And took a little side trip to Morocco. We left home in early April and were back in late July — over 15,000 kilometers of adventure. The longest trip we made.
This is a translation of an interview of me and Martin, the owner of a czech website about digital nomads. Martin is an internet marketing consultant and his wife Lenka is a graphic designer. Both of them are freelancers.
We all want the best for our kids. Some of us give it to them by unlimited supply of toys and fun, some of us by Montessori or Waldorf education. Me and my wife have decided to enrich the life of our whole family more evenly. My name is Vita Valka and I travel with my wife and our two girls (3 and 4 years old) by caravan. We became addicted to the nomad life when we hit our very first road back in 2012.
First autumn trip. Into Croatia for second time to a great campsite near Split. Three weeks of intermittent windy and sunny weather and short days have different atmosphere than spring.
Sun has heated the northern hemisphere and we set out on trip to see first country outside Europe. Turkish spring is beautiful. We made over 8.000 km on highways, roads and dirt roads. Wonderful 59 days.
Martin Rosulek interviewed me in 2014. Martin is a great and busy marketer who travels with his girlfriend and works from many awesome locations. We’ve met a few times and always had fruitful discussions about life, values and the joy of doing unusual things.
Two years ago we have slowed down drastically. We’ve changed our approach to work and realised, that the goal isn’t building a family house and looking after a garden. I bought a caravan, furnished it with the most essential stuff and together with my wife & kids we’ve started to live on the road.
Forget travel agencies. Blend work and holiday for a whole new experience. Travel without an organised schedule. It costs just a bit of effort and knowing your life priorities.
