Imagine being able to live wherever you want, travelling the world with everything you need in your own cosy home on wheels

Three years ago I was miserable. I’d sit at my desk every thinking ‘this can’t be it’. I felt like I was missing out, like there was so much more to life than going back and forth to a windowless office building every day feeling unfulfilled, uninspired and fed up.

I needed more. I wanted to explore the world, live in different places, meet different people and let every day be an adventure. I wanted the life I thought might be out there. Maybe you also feel like this from time to time?

My dream was get a van, make it into my full-time travelling home and break away. Off into the sunset. To be free, with the whole of Europe (and possibly beyond) as my garden. So that’s what I did.

Now my life is very different. I live where I want, I do what I want, and travel and adventure are part of every day. I am free of my old shackled life. I decide when and where I work, how much I get paid and what I do with the rest of my time.

A van is freedom. It’s the new office. It’s the new home. And no one will be asking for rent

No one told me a life like this was even possible and my experiences over the last three years have exceeded my wildest dreams.

Which brings us to you and this book!

If you’re tired of the daily grind, working flat out five days a week and then too deflated or exhausted to live it up at the weekend…

If you yearn to be the Captain of your soul, to live free, travel far and explore what life can truly offer you…

Or if you just want to escape in a campervan for a few weeks or months but don’t how to make it happen, or if it’s even possible…

Then this book is for you!

On the fringes of beautiful beaches, on high mountain roads and scenic country lanes there’s a quiet revolution taking place.

All over the world people are rejecting the confines of urban life, of being hemmed in by other people’s expectations and settling for daydreams of what could have been…

“The rise of the Van Dweller is more than a trend, it’s a new way of life.”

You can now live anywhere you want. Van life represents a new kind of freedom. It’s the new office, it’s a life of adventure and it’s the ultimate digital nomad experience.

This book will help you to shortcut three years of trial and error, hundreds of experiments, mis-adventures and tens of thousands of miles of experience.

You’ll learn why all it takes is a single decision and how to take action and get started.

And once you commit to your new life of freedom this book can be your indispensable guide:

How to know if van life is for youHow to get started, key questions to ask to help you pick the right vanPractical solutions to the challenges you’ll encounter as a van dwellerHow to get on the road and stay travellingWhat’s life on the road really like, the highs, the lows, and the people you’ll meet on the wayThe truth about Freecamping and how to comfortably live on £10 a dayHow to make money on the road, working remotely and independent revenue streamsHow to stay connected while living off the grid and on the road

This book is the result of my three year adventure as a full-time van dweller. It’s been an amazing ride and one that will continue for years to come.

If you’ve ever dreamed of living your life on your terms, of controlling your destiny and creating a lifestyle based on freedom, choice and adventure then this book could be your essential first step.

My favourite campervan book Because we bought a camper last year I read a few campervan/motorhome books, presented from both a practical and an adventure perspective.And I can honestly say this book is my favourite.I’m pretty sure I’m old enough to be the lad’s dad, so the book doesn’t resonate on every level, but I’m finding it to be very useful and enjoyable.I should probably point out, after such gushing praise, that although we have the same surname, we’re not in any way related!

A big boost to my wanderlust! I occasionally spend slow times in the office scrolling through the vandog blog, day dreaming about getting out and doing some long term travelling myself.The plan is to do a 9 month climbing and speedflying trip in my van next year and reading this is book is pushing my psych levels through the roof!It is very well written and would be useful even if you’re just taking a van on holiday for week or two. I wish I’d had this last year before my first road trip!

brilliant book Mike is a genius; making sure that the book is easy to understand with all possible information needed to break free and enjoy travelling. Full to the brim with tips, including everything from internet coverage to how to save water. His attention to detail is second-to-none, making the book a treasure trove of information whilst still being fun to read. I love his honesty and down-to-earth approach, perfectly blended with precise instructions and website links and references. He’s a very clever…
