Although #vanlife has been glamourised on social media in recent years, Goose and Ellen open up about the realities of living on the road full-time, without a physical house as a base. With several different vehicles that they’ve called home, in two countries, over three years, they are definitely pros at this. In this episode they share the highlights – like waking up for sunrise every morning; and open up about the challenges – like rolling your van (aka house) on a rural road. They also talk about the hilarious wtf moments (warning: not safe for work). For Goose and Ellen, living in a van has given them the freedom and flexibility to travel around the Aotearoa. They’re now based in Kaikōura, 16 seconds away from the beach, with the mountains as their backdrop, working dream jobs as opportunities arose from living on the road and having the time to hone their skills. Goose and Ellen’s advice to anyone that wants to live a similar lifestyle on the road – just do it!
