Today's episode begins in San Diego on Fiesta Island where we wake up next to our skoolie buddies Tio Aventura! We begin the vlog by giving you a conversion tour of their BEAUTIFUL LOFT ON WHEELS and then head to Torrey Pines Trailhead to explore the stunning coastline here in California. As always, you can count on us to share lots of delicious vegan food and a few hearty laughs x
We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!

Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Toronto-based couple who live full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! SUBSCRIBE for wanderlust travel, behind the scenes of what it's really like to live in a van, and videos all about the yummy vegan food we make + eat!
We post new videos every Wednesday + Sunday AND a new, easy vegan recipe every Friday :)
Our goal here is to inspire you to chase after your own dreams however big (or small... tiny homes anyone?) they may be! We hope to create a community of like-minded, positive individuals who will grow to love and support one another on their own journeys.

    • Eamon & Bec hey could I please get a reply? I’m trying to get a rv and live in it full time. Can I still do this I know the laws in San Diego are strict as fuck and you can’t park anywhere. How did you get away with this? I need the secret.

    • Love your van vs. bus swap idea. It's 9:37 pm (Central Time) in Winnipeg; about 12 hours north of Chicago. Just stepped in from shovelling snow and it's -16*C. Today was another awesome day and a welcome reprieve from the -35*C weather; that's almost 40 below zero and yes, some of us ride bikes all year long. Keep the updates coming. Cheers to all.

  • We’ve been watching your videos in random orders (we watch series based on how we are feeling) and every time we finish we say “oh no we’ve closed the gap, now what”. Just finished this bit, and now we’re completely caught from 2019- present day! So we are starting hello Mexico and are excited 🥰

  • Just joined recently. So glad you made it to my old stomping grounds. I'm in Boise now. I still have family in CA, but during this pandemic, I missed my Lola's 96th birthday. 😭😭😭 Anyway, I'm up to date with your adventures, but going back in time to see all your old stuff. Happy Trails and I hope to get something for my little family to travel safely through these times. I need it soon since I'm a long distance driver and I'm missin' the open road.

  • Torrey Pine pro tip: It's a really short easy walk to the top because you just use the road and you definitely don't have to pay the 20$, you can just park on the side of the beach before the entrance point.

  • In the process of converting a Mercedes Sprinter into a mobile livable space in San Diego!!! Unfortunately the area of I live in has a homeowners association that does not allow work on vehicles of any kind in the driveway (lame). Those that know San Diego, know that backyards don't exist in most densely populated areas of this city. With a high roof van, it cannot fit in the garage, so that's not an option. Where are locations that you recommend to work on your van? Where did you find that location? And how did it work out?

  • Aloha friends! We have been watching your videos and being inspired! We drove up in our shuttle bus conversion from Miami, FL to Sedona, AZ. We are currently in Phoenix. We we're thinking of heading over to San Diego to check out Fiesta Island and maybe do a little work on the bus before we hit the Mexico border. We are planning to drive all the way to Costa Rica. Question: You can stay overnight at Fiesta Island for a few days without being harassed? Would this be a good stop for us to do a few plumbing repairs? Thanks in advance and keep up the awesome vids!! Hopefully we will see you soon along the way!

    • @Eamon & Bec Did you have any trouble finding other spots to boondock in the San Diego area? We've heard it can be tricky. Can you tell us some of the spots you stayed when kicked out of Fiesta Island? Hoping you are loving Baja! I am doing major research to decide if we will go to Baja or just hit the border to Mexico from Arizona, as originally planned. We really want to check out Baja! 😁

    • That’s awesome you guys! Sounds like quite the adventure. We were kicked off Fiesta Island a few nights (mostly over the weekends) so we can’t say for certain that you’d have no issues. It is however really nice to park there for the day and clean up the bus/do some quick repairs as there’s lots of wide open space!

Have been going there since the late 80's and have seen it change so much. Stay out of Cabo now, but plenty of great towns to visit. Was just there in November and really wanted to stay this time.
