Sometimes when life gets crazy, taking a step back is good. And that’s what we’ve been doing! Our cross-country road trip and the holidays were truly amazing, but also really exhausting. So while we’ve been figuring out what the future holds for us and Always the Road, we decided to take a break from social media to focus on our future path. It felt good to take a hiatus too! But here’s the good news....WE BACK 💃🕺We’ve missed this funky, wonderful online community of travelers and we’re stoked to be back 😊
You guys...I have a problem. I have ONE drawer for clothes, but I still can’t stop myself from buying ridiculous coats like this! 😆 😩
I’m a “minimalist” nomad with a dark secret..I dream of a big closet with lots of fun clothes to mix and match! My current drawer holds about 4 sweaters, a couple pairs of pants and some workout clothes.
It’s been super easy to give up most things, but clothing is my weakness just as music equipment is Mars’.
Honestly, having one drawer makes it easy to say no to buying things I don’t need...but dang, when I find loud coats, I start rearranging. I told Mars it doubles as a blanket or even a pillow! Fingers crossed he lets me keep it! Right now, I’m just thankful that it made this photo. 😆🙌🏻
On poursuit notre série « Mais que prévoient nos équipages en 2019 ? » avec les @esprits_outdoor !
Après 16 mois sur la Panaméricaine et la revente sur place de leur maison sur roues, nos deux grands sportifs sont rentrés en France pour les fêtes.. mais évidemment ils ne comptent pas en rester là et je vous préviens de suite, ça annonce une année chargée !
« Nous avons monté notre entreprise Esprits Outdoor (Audio-visuel / Influence & blogging / Événementiel axé sport).
En parallèle, Estelle est monitrice de ski sur Arêches-Beaufort. Elle a également ouvert son studio de yoga sur la station et propose des stages d’initiation alliant ces deux sports !
Antoine lui monte notre film "Panamericana" pour pouvoir le proposer et peut-être le diffuser sur les festivals.
Nous travaillons également sur notre livre "Sur les routes des Amériques, sélection des plus beaux endroits entre le Canada et l'Argentine", et aimerions organiser des expos photos pour en faire la promotion. »
Je vous avais prévenus ! Et parce que c’est LA question qu’on se pose en tant que Nouveaux Nomades.. prévoient-ils d’acquérir/aménager un nouveau camion ? Et leur réponse évidemment : « Oui oui oui ! Pour l’été 2019 ! »
Vivement vous suivre dans ces nouvelles aventures !
But wait, THERE'S MORE!
I was so pumped to find access to this overhead storage when I gutted Vandy. This with the lofted bed give me so much storage! Proud to say everything I own is in this #tinyhomeonwheels.
Anyone else storage unit free and all in!? Feels good!!

That's the roof complete... Its been a few days getting it finished but that's it done and the lights fitted... Looks awesome... Next is to finish the painting... Fit the sink... And the other 100 things we have to do in 6 weeks 🌅
Last January I was whining and saying our kitchen was too small for a family our size.
Who would have guessed a year later I would be loving the itty bitty kitchen in our tiny home.
Funny how perspectives change over time.
When Derek finally jumped on board with full time travel and I realized it was going to become a reality I started dreaming of the amazing #rvrenovation we’d make happen.
Little did I know we’d find the perfect brand new trailer and we’d be so sick of all the DIY renovating we had been doing while flipping our house over the past two years that I would instead fully embrace the wood cabinets. the thought of painting something else was worse than the existing color so those suckers have stayed brown.
I compromised by grabbing some peel-n-stick tiles on Amazon for a backsplash and calling it good!

The snow left 🤔?
Well it’s winter up in the mountains but down here in Freiburg it’s wet and muddy. We actually love this mood 😍 because it’s so special and the smell and the colors in the woods are so much more intense 🙌🏻.
No need to stay at home... go out and explore the great outdoors in all seasons, it surprised us so often 👌🏻.
Would you join our route through the dirt? - greetings from the cockpit ✌🏻
Really enjoyed Sevilla. But not the camper area. So we moved on, but will come back. Tomorrow I will publish a blogpost with images and reflections. .
This architecture I love! There are many nice buildings in Sevilla.
This was the first picture I took when I finally got my bus home. The sun was setting behind me, and the reflection of the sunset in the windows made me think of all the possibilities and journeys yet to come. I’ll always remember our first sunset together...😍
This weekend mostly consisted of pulling staples for me 🙃 HUGE source of excitement was laying out some of the LVT planks that we’ll be installing through the whole space. The product is Patcraft Splitwood in Raw Gold and I am OBSESSED. It’s going to brighten the whole space up so much that it makes a full weekend of staple pulling SO worth it. •
We will be moving Beau closer to us in the next few weeks which will let us get more hands on deck at a quicker pace. CAN NOT WAIT.
"Our master suite 🤗 We get questions ALL the time about our toilet and if it smells.... Nope! @naturesheadtoilet
To get to the bedroom you pass through the bathroom, which adds separation and privacy from living space, but also creates a master *on suite* design. The toilet door swings out toward the living space and doubles as a bedroom door. #multitask
As for the toilet odors? Minimal at the most. We’ve been living in Eleanor full time for three months and never notice the toilet smelling. The number 2 compartment has a vent fan which keeps things dry and odorless. The number 1 chamber has to be changed regularly, but is simple to do. The only change we’d make to the bathroom set up would be to have the number 1 chamber hook up to the gray water tank so that we don’t have to manually dump it ever few days. #compostingtoilet
Are you thinking of getting a composting toilet? Are you curious on how it works or if it smells?! Let us know what you’re concerned about and we can tell you our experience! 👇" - @ellietheskoolie
