Living in a Van and Our Ireland Road Trip

Dingle Peninsula - Ireland Road Trip Itinerary

We’ve just spent two weeks living in a van and I can’t think of a better way to explore the beauty of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We had no expectations but knew that we’d have a fun day and would say yes to any and all opportunities that would come our way. What we didn’t know is that the events that would unfold over the next 24 hours would end with us being featured on the national evening news in Croatia…
