Safety is always a topic that surfaces when discussing vanlife and up until this point Eamon & I have always felt 100% safe living in a van. Unfortunately, bad things happen everywhere in the world and we just feel LUCKY to have one another and our health. At the end of the day, things are just things and are replaceable.
Today we share what life has been like following our van break in last week. There are some residual feelings of insecurity and we struggle to enjoy a day out in Barcelona without looking over our shoulders at every turn. Regardless we make the most of it and explore La Ramblas, La Sangrada Familia and more :)
Our day is flipped upside down when the police officer from our case shares about a Pawn Shop right beside where Eamon's phone was turned on and tracked using "Find my iPhone". So, we meet Virginia and Ricard and head to the Pawn Shop to try and retrieve our things!

  • Just curious...... but Eamon, are you not worried about all the phytoestrogens in the soy you consume? And. “Soybean, also called soya bean, is the NUMBER ONE genetically modified crop in the world, representing half of all worldwide biotech crop acreage with an 82% adoption rate among soy farmers. Due to its high oil and protein content, soy is cultivated for a variety of food purposes.”

  • Hi Guys have you seen those concertina type hoses,there are three lengths and they are very strong with two hoses inside each other and they concertina down to a few feet from about 25 feet,there are two more lengths and they all shrink down when you want to put them away,you just roll them round and round...

  • Hi!! New subscriber here that lives in Barcelona, and I'm Spanish. Actually that Tim Hortons by the time you were here last year probably was only a year old. It is quite new that we're having your famous cafe here hehe. Hopefully, your rob experience is not what you take from Spain. It is a great country but unfortunately, sometimes this type of shit happens, mostly on touristy places where people might be flowing and not paying attention or with their guards down and enjoying. Spain has much more to offer and I hope you

  • Hey guys, I feel your pain, I got my MSI gaming laptop stolen with my new go pro, and a bunch of medical stuff that i had to pay out of pocket cause insurance only pays monthly here in the US. The feeling of insecurity lasts a long time!! Acceptance comes next, you did the right thing, your life and safety is worth more than phones and cameras!

  • The inside of Sagrada Familia is lackluster compared to the outside so I promise you're not missing out on anything. The pricing is a mess though. I ended up paying 65 euro to get in b/c tour companies buy most of the tickets adn when there are none left you can only buy from them. Love traveling; hate tourism

  • When in other countries. Always carry a small pocket knife, Always have a hidden go pro, Always have your phone with the wallet (iphone app) OR Samsung pay (Galaxy app) OR Google pay (Android phone) and have an american express credit/charge card on it to make purchases because if something shady goes down it's as easy as your phone set to delete itself to keep your important stuff safe and if you get over charged you can call AMEX, report it and get reimbursed. Worse case scenario for the money stuff if you need cash just get currency from that country. Always do research on transportation cards for buses or train to carry cards instead of paying with cash. Lastly, get a VPN service for your phone to keep safe from phone hackers on the go.

  • I only just started watching you guys. That sucks what happened -- I've done long term travel and been robbed and it's rotten! Anyway, for your hose that keeps kinking, look up how sound/audio roadies do up their leads. You go one one way then one the other underneath, works for anything, and it doesn't tangle at all when you un-reel it too!

  • Hey E&B! As an Architect I must tell you that Gaudi is pronounced “Gow-Dee”. Also he lived his life like a monk on site for his love of his religion & architecture. Tragically, he stepped back to get a better view of construction & was killed by a streetcar in the street. He died for his Art, his God & his Barcelona. Peace be with you...

  • Get one of the stretchy hoses it can stretch out to 25 ft 50ft 75 ft,depending which one you buy,then when you want to put it away it shrinks,it can fit into a very small space never kinks or tangles,its on the on line shopping channels,try Amazon it is called expandable garden hose,there are many but the blue one is the best and it is £17 for 200ft..

  • I don't own a van and I just spent a solid thirty minutes looking to van security upgrades. So when i get my van deadlocks and armaplates on all doors. Hidden harden steel u bolts welded to the frames with high strength padlock on doors. Very loud blue light alarm system with an extra sensor to prevent door folding. Cat lock on the catalytic converter. Plates behind all the internal door handles. This is 100% overkill but it is kind of interesting learning how to turn a van into fort Knox.

  • Have you guys ever used Dock and Bay towels / or just any travel towel ? I just got a dock and bay one last month and it’s so compact, dries quick and doesn’t smell like a wet cotton towel does after a few days. Oh and the xl is 6ft long. It feels very different than a traditional towel but I seriously love it. Anyways just thought I’d comment on that because you guys swim often and they’re good for bath towels as well.
