Last year Matt and I took a “test drive” of living life out of a van while traveling around New Zealand! I wrote about the experience for BioLite in the blog “The Stuff Nobody Tells You About #VanLife,” which is finally live! Click here to check it out.

If you’ve ever dreamed about living the “Van Life” or are just curious what it’s like, this blog is for you. It explains the concept of a “test drive,” shares eight things no one tells you about van life – from parking to hygiene to relationships, and includes a handy packing list.

The trip to New Zealand was also our first trip as SWISSGEAR Travel Ambassadors.

I contributed to BioLite’s blog “19 Epic Outdoor Destinations to Explore in 2019” too. Check out number 13 to see where I wrote about – and it surprisingly is not New Zealand (although it is an epic outdoor destination).
