To say we are excited about having a new floor in is an understatement! I think it’s Leo’s new favourite place to chill πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ and it's sooooo much nicer to look at and walk on than the stained decades-old vinyl it once had. 🀒 Β· Also, we had in the back of our minds that we had to fix the hot water system in the van before leaving Vancouver, and had been dreading ringing around RV repair places as they are verrrry busy in the middle of summer. And then, Eric was fiddling with the hot water system today with our mate @sensiblenomads and it started working!!!! πŸ›πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Hellooooo hot showers!!

For a ferry that got us and Valour the 🚐 from A (Vancouver Island) to B (Vancouver mainland), the view is a total bonus - and pretty spectacular! ✨ So naturally, we parked our van below deck and brought our own dinner up and voila... A sunset dinner cruise! Swipe πŸ‘‰πŸΌ to see the view. πŸŒ… Β· (P.s Leo's face in the second photo is a reaction to the deafening sound of the ship's horn πŸ“―). Β· Β« Have you caught the ferry to Van island before? Β»

Eric and I were talking about what our favourite spot in the van is but I just can't decide!! It's a tie... The kitchen and the bed are by far my two favourite spots in the van, post renovation. (Swipe right to see them both πŸ‘‰πŸΌ) Β· This kitchen may be tiny but it has given me the energy to start cooking dinner again (I felt meh about cooking for around 2 years!! Anyone relate? πŸ₯˜πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ) Aaaand it’s so small that I actually LIKE washing up & cleaning it so that it doesn’t get cluttered. Looking after the counter top and splashback Eric and I worked so hard to install & seal so it lasts for a looong time is now super important. So that’s definitely a domestic miracle πŸ˜‡ and unexpected bonus of ! 🀣 Β· And the bed (with my all time fave @anthropologie linen 😍) is also my favorite because it's the cosiest reading/Netflix spot in the world and surprisingly easy to make even though it requires a looot of tucking in. πŸ˜‚ Plus there's room for all 3 of us when Leo jumps in for morning snuggles. πŸ‘ͺπŸ’— Turns out it doesn’t take much to make a girl happy! 🚐 Β· Β« Kitchen or bed, which do you like better?

We've named our van guys! ... Β· Β· Β· Valour the Van! Because she's a brave beast of a van that will take us on lots of adventures and it fits in with our 'Dare' theme perfectly πŸ’ͺ🏻🏹😍 Β· What do you think of the name? 🀣 We'll do an in-depth tour for you verrry soon πŸ˜‰πŸŽ₯ And thanks so much for all your name suggestions, it was super hard to find one all three of us agreed on! (Leo has a... developing taste in names. Last week he named my hanging plant 'Office'. πŸ™„πŸ€£πŸŒ±) But we love our Valour πŸšπŸ’—

Wow! We were humbled by the overwhelmingly positive and encouraging response to our van renovation in yesterday's post, and all the kind comments! 😊 Β· When we say we have literally NO renovation experience, we're not kidding. Just your basic woodworking classes in school and the ability to watch lots of YouTube tutorials, plus some pretty awesome people who gave us advice. But our motto is "if you think you can, then you can" (or something more inspiring, but that's the basic gist 😜) Β· Anyway, you guys are legends and we're so thankful for this online community of people who 'get' this adventurous lifestyle we've chosen. πŸ’— It's not for everyone, but man do we love it! πŸšπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜ Β· Sidenote: writing this standing on the road outside a gas station because πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

The full reveal is in our profile} Β· We’ve spent the last week trawling through all the footage we took as we documented the renovation process over 21 days. We've smooshed it all into a brief video wrap up of how we did this reno with no building experience, how we tackled the extensive black mold issues and rebuilt the internal structure, ceiling kitchen counter, Leo's playspace and shower! Β· And there are some sweeeet before + after shots πŸ“Έ, so head over to the link in our bio to watch the big reveal and our van’s transformation from ugly 90s pink floral to the glorious, liveable space it is now! πŸ’—πŸšπŸ›  Β· Eeeeep, so excited to hear what you think??!

β€’ NAME IDEAS! β€’ 🚐 We need your help! We still haven’t named our van yet, and while choosing names is usually my favourite thing, we’ve been so busy building the van that we haven’t had time to think of a name! πŸ€” Any ideas??

In the 3 days since we started living life in our van we sorta feel like everything we know has been turned upside down. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ We've faced 2 flat batteries, GPS frustrations, booked out campsites, unfriendly Walmarts (you can usually stay at Walmart free overnight but this is banned at all Walmarts on Vancouver island for some reason), things breaking, not knowing how to work different parts of our RV and all the emotional lows and highs that come with starting . 🚐 Β· Β· BUT waking up in our own bed every morning by the lake has made all the hard bits πŸ˜πŸ› We know it's a steep learning curve for the first few weeks (lots of other warned us of that!) but we're staying positive through the hard bits and enjoying all the views right outside our van door! πŸ” Van reveal pics coming soon, I promise! We're living in it about 80% finished, so still a bit of work to do before we're ready to share!
