VAN LIFE IRELAND 🇮🇪| why we live in a tiny house on wheels?!
Four years ago we started a chai company called Chaiwala Chai. To this day it's how we keep ourselves on the road! If you'd like to try our all-natural, healing blends you can shop here chaiwalachai.com/. Many thanks x

We begin this week's van life vlog right where we left you last time: on Achill Island! Eamon stopped us here to try his hand at kiteboarding again and boy oh boy do we have an adventure (think 2 hour trek through a marsh 😆). One of the reasons we live in a van is to be able to stay somewhere for as long or as little as we'd like so this week we spend extra time parked on Achill Island -- kiteboarding, enjoying our neighbour's company and just SLOWING down! But, it didn't take long for us to get itchy feet so we continue north towards Slieve League Cliffs and the Giant's Causeway!
Catch up on last week's video:
After successfully shipping our van to England from Canada & enjoying our last week in Wales we decided to ferry over to Dublin, Ireland! In last week's van life vlog we explore the city of Dublin (Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc), enjoy the city of Cork and fall in love with the seaside town of Greystones to meet the Happy Pear. We then check out the Cliffs of Moher and the city of Galway! On our way north along the Wild Atlantic Way we stopped at a wonderful island which is where today's van life vlog picks up!

  • I loved the Giants Causeway. The logical reason might be proof of Pangea, where all the continents were together and then split since there are only 2 places in the world with the basaltic columns. Also the cover of a Led Zeppelin album was shot there. :D

  • No wonder I can relate to you two...24 mins into this I hit pause and told my wife there was a name for her phobia of not wanting to hear people eat or chew...she says “I know”...32yrs of me trying to eat crunchy things quietly, or mostly, in the other room, while she crunches in bed, no problem...Yet she thinks it’s cute when the dog’s crunch out loud...long story 🤪

  • The Giant's Causeway is actually free but it's run by the money grabbing British National Trust, who con people into thinking you have to pay. They pretend that the only entrance is through their Causeway Centre, which is really just a glorified gift shop. To the right of their Centre, is a little road that goes under an arch, follow that road and it takes you directly to the Giant's Causeway. You can walk down to it, or there are little buses, cheap, which will carry you along the 20 minute walk. This is all perfectly legal and no-one will stop you. I meet tourists who are going there, all the tome, and I always tell them to not go through the rip off Causeway Centre.

  • You guys seem to have an amazing relationship. I have been with my amazing girl about eight years and love her very much. Somehow, watching you guys makes me love her even more. I suppose its because seeing you two (at least through your blog) is inspirational, with how supportive and in touch with each other you are. A real team, two real "buds". It makes me think how lucky you guys are, which reminds me how lucky I am, if that even makes sense. Anyway... you seem like great people and I hope you continue to live your best life. Keep those positive vibes going in these strange times.

  • Ahhh my homeland, I can see how cold you guys are throughout the video ! Ah bless :p haha , especially jumping into the sea , fairplay though for giving it a shot ! Ireland has all that coastline but it is FREEZING 90% of the time ! Only the hardiest go out in that , ALWAYS in wetsuits ! I suppose my scene is the music festivals , the dancing etc . Its a shame you guys didnt go south on the Atlantic way , Galway and Cork are two beautiful magic little cities full of music ! But I figure you opted for the giants causeway , never been there myself ! Hexagon stones , mad shtuff! Also , why did that fella drive off when his missus was still closing the trunk ?! haha jaysis , and yeah about calling Ireland part of the UK , no worrrries , slip of the tongue , its grand, just DONT EVER DO THAT AGAIN........ haha jokes , I can see people going on about it in the comments here Im like cmon twas clearly a mistake. If rural Ireland seemed quiet its because we have been constantly blighted by emigration since like 1800 ! Caused by either famine, or British rule, or our own failing economy. But since the 1990's it seems, finally, more people are staying instead of leaving , we are also planning on getting back to having 8 babies per family again haha , and there are plenty moving here now , good economy , only english speaking member of the EU now , it seems now that we can finally re-populate all them rural areas ! Still though , none of this stuff Im talking about takes away from the natural beauty of the landscape , wild land , I love it , and there is something in the air in Ireland , I love it

  • Millions of Irish have died due to genocide and oppression by the British. Thousands of brave Irish men and women have fought for our independence. We are an independent country with no relation to the UK. You would expect educated Canadian’s who BOTH have Irish ancestry with the surnames of Fitzgerald and Moroney to know this.
