Fel and Wes in Ontario, Canada

As these months of travel pass us by, we’re finding it increasingly hard to remember where we’ve been let alone what we even did there! It has been one heck of a year. In 2017 we visited over 10 countries and 30 cities together, a dozen islands and a bunch of national parks. There were road trips and rainstorms, precious moments with family and our longest stretch apart. Some days were planned but many took us completely by surprise and these 12 unexpected experiences are the highlights of our 2017 travels.

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.

Everywhere you look feels like a picture-perfect postcard setting, sheep traffic jams and all. Our campervan was great for exploring the coasts and countryside so today we’re sharing our Ireland road trip itinerary and photos to inspire you to give #vanlife a try.
