VAN LIFE UK | Why Our Time Living in a Van in the UK is Over!
We’re Eamon & Bec and over the last two months we have traveled across the UK in our tiny home on wheels. From the bustling city of London city 🌃 to the untouched nature of Wales ⛰ to the cliffs of Northern Ireland 🇮🇪 and the vast landscapes of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 we have LOVED our time here! And while we’ve definitely learned to embrace the wind 💨 and the ☔️ , knowing that the sun awaits us in France is reason enough to say goodbye to the UK (for now).
In today’s van life vlog we pick up right where we left off with 3 people living in a van in Scotland. We show you around the Lake District, enjoy the intensity of a football match in Blackpool and make the most of our final day with our favourite third wheel!
Are you as excited as we are to soak up some Vitamin D ☀️while exploring the rest of Europe!?
Catch up on last week’s episode: 3 People Living in a Van \\ Van Life in Scotland
With only 60 sq ft our tiny house on wheels has always amazed us with just how many people we can fit in there! And while our sprinter van has always seemed like plenty of room for the two of us, this week we test it's capacity with a third human!!! We will all travel across the country of Scotland (living, traveling, sleeping, cooking altogether). Could you live in such tight quarters with two other people?!

Tour the renovations we've done to our self converted sprinter van:

    • Le Mont St. Michel ! It's like the #2 tourist attraction behind the Eiffel Tower. Also, you guys would love the southern coast (Marseilles, Nice, etc). Even though you guys aren't exactly winos, you should so check out the vignoble scene...Bordeaux, Champagne, Loire. Every region has its own wine. You're going to have a blast! Can't wait to see your adventures!

    • bordeaux bordeaux bordeaux bordeaux bordeaux i cannot stress this enough!!! Go see the "mirroir d'eau" or the water mirror in English- it's this platform thing that has small water fountains in each tile (if you see what I mean) and they have different settings like water mist, water shooting up really high... on a sunny hot day, its the best thing ever!

  • 17:02 . . . had to stop watching the rest, those parents of Bec and of course Adam too, wow . . . proud i guess is the wrong word? I'm sure that 3rd wheel of your van ADAM is on the web somewhere? What a joy that "kid" (as you call that 3x showering and even during sleep brushing his teeth guy Hunk) is around you guys. Since he was actually your guest and the "special" with you guys for the days in the UK and Ireland, you cut his parts pretty short 🥴😞. After day 2 "with you guys", i need to say, that it's true, Adam showed more of your average day as you guys ever do! You left him alone in the van while out SUPing, oh man, if i would have known, i could have come over with the bikes to pick him up . . . sort of. What a cool, easy, relaxed and well showered man! AMAZING. You need mor time with AFAM, he's a real treasure in many ways. Glad you enjoyed the UK. Soccer, yeah, no comparison on football, baseball or even hockey in North America, the after games are sometimes not so nice. 🙄 So you never made it to 🏔⛰🏔⛰ Bavaria? 🤔😳😇 hhhhmmmm? ..... if so, bring Adam! 😉👍🏻 Nice Video, too short on certain parts.

  • Hey Guy's I have just watched this video and let me explain the football chaos... This would have been around the time the fan's were mad at the owner Owen Oyston.. There were many protests and this would have been some of the chaos you filmed, he is now no longer the owner after the courts removed the club from him... I do hope you come back here one day and furthmore hope I have a camper made by then as I can show you our Country delights such as The Cotswolds and Lytham which is my town just 10 mins from the dump of Blackpool....

It has really pushed me to want to get on the road more. Safe travels

  • Please watch this Eamon is a healthy vegan and this OTHER guy in a viral video I saw on fb is a drug addict. He looks so much like Eamon day and night, the resemblance is uncanning, please comb your hair and clean up your look! Your wife always combs herself your too handsom to not care and always have bed head hair everywhere you go and in every video.

  • If you going to the West side of France you defo need to check out two places that I visit every year. A theme park called Puy du fou , it's not got any rides but it's like Disney land crossed with national trust type history. Lots of awesome shows ! Loads of content for the blog and each show has its own themed village. Theres campervan camping there (don't know the price) but food isn't every vegan friendly. and there's a couple of beachs near Oléron island that go on for miles and are alot like the beach's in Mexico from what I could see. If your lucks right they'll besome serious waves sometimes for Eamon to test his skills. Have an amazing time guys, I love your videos !!
