VAN LIFE EUROPE | living in a van in the city vs. nature | what's better?
Start learning on Skillshare today with 2 months free at
With only 60 sq ft our tiny house on wheels gives us the chance to experience van life in the city AND out in nature. And while most vanlifers are all about "natttuuurrreeee man" and escaping the everyday hustle and bustle, Eamon & I have always been drawn to urban life too. While we never miss a chance to live in a van in a new city, it doesn't take long before we too escape to nature!
Catch up on our last adventures:
Van Life Scotland | 3 People Living in a Van
Van Life UK | Leaving England for Living in a Van in France
Tour the renovations we've done to our self converted sprinter van:
VAN TOUR after 2 years living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels
Today we show you around van life in Paris & Bordeaux and sprinkle in some down time out in France's beautiful nature where we quite literally live in a van down by the river 😂.

  • Just a general comment about your channel, but I looove you guys so much! I feel like your videos are so helpful and aspirational to me for when I decide to do van life. I'm vegan and I love to explore cities and landmarks etc, as well as things like national parks. I initially watched for your van tour, but stayed for how genuinely likeable you both are and my interest in your travel journey! x

  • First off the music to this is literally killer. You make me want to quit my job in Vegas, sell every high-end thing I own and just travel the world with someone I love in a little tiny 60 square-foot van. I am not kidding when I tell you, you two are my favorite couple! I look forward to finding episodes I haven’t watched yet! Cinematography is on point! ❤️❤️

  • I love watching your videos! I was just in Paris earlier this month! I live in Germany right now for study abroad. I will say be careful filming in public in both France and Germany because privacy laws are VERY strict and you can get in trouble for filming other people and if anyone complains they can actually like take you to court over it and stuff!

  • French girl here! If you planed on going back to France again some day, don't go to Paris, there are a lot of other cities in France that are incredible (and incredibly cheaper, with incredibly nicer people!), such as Toulouse, Lyon, Nantes, Montpellier. The 'country' is rly beautiful too, you just have to lost yourself a bit to find amazing places!
