#10 Should You Travel to Scandinavia in a Van?

Norway Podcast.jpg

In todays episode of The Alternative Living Podcast we discuss the process of travelling throughout Scandinavia - especially Norway - in a van!

We’ve been a couple for over thirteen years, and are technically classed as childhood sweethearts which makes us smile! Moving out of a house five years ago and into a van was a new step for our relationship, so it felt great to share what we’ve learned from our years of alternative living together.

#05 Should You Renovate an Old Campervan?

Welcome to our fifth episode of the alternative living podcast!&nbsp;  At the end of September we were invited to spend the weekend at Camp Quirky, hosted by  Quirky Campers , who had around 30 self build camper vans all lined out beautifully in a sunny field in the cotswolds for a couple of nights.&nbsp;  There was so much inspiration for us as we are planning on buying a bigger van in the new year, so it was amazing to see so many different lay outs and chat to so many people who have done it themselves.&nbsp;  As usual we filmed the whole thing, so  here's a link to the film  where you can see all the vans we got to see.  As well as a host of gorgeous vans we met up with some familiar faces, including Rich from Beyond The Van who we’ve recorded the next podcast with, and Ellie and Scott who we met back in August to create a film about their gorgeous van  Florence .&nbsp;  Check out their  website  here and follow their  Instagram  here.&nbsp;   

Welcome to our fifth episode of the alternative living podcast! 

At the end of September we were invited to spend the weekend at Camp Quirky, hosted by Quirky Campers, who had around 30 self build camper vans all lined out beautifully in a sunny field in the cotswolds for a couple of nights. 

There was so much inspiration for us as we are planning on buying a bigger van in the new year, so it was amazing to see so many different lay outs and chat to so many people who have done it themselves. 

As usual we filmed the whole thing, so here's a link to the film where you can see all the vans we got to see.

This week we met up with Robbie Cumming; a full-time live aboard on a 42ft narrowboat who has been travelling in his boat Naughty Lass for two years now. As a continuous cruiser Robbie is always on the move, and as well as finding new locations to stay he works remotely and makes youtube videos of his endeavours. We travelled to Sheffield to film a tour of his boat, and sat down with a cup of coffee to discuss all things tiny floating home.
