↟ Break Away Tale NR 200 // @slownsteadylivin

We are Matt and Stephanie two creative souls who live in our home on wheels Ivy, she’s an Iveco Daily 1996 with an extended back. For us living in a van is a conscious choice to be off grid and gives us the ability to move with the seasons. We spend our summer months in the UK in a busy beach town working the tourist season at a surf school. We work extremely hard and save every penny we make, so when winter arrives we can migrate south in the van exploring Europe and North Africa until the late spring. For us this provides a great work/life balance! ⠀

In the winter months we spend our time being creative, surfing, hiking and exploring new landscapes. Steph is an artist and illustrator and uses the van as a moving studio as well as our home.⠀

We have extensively explored the west coast of Europe and Morocco several times! The transition of cultures, changing landscapes, mountains and coastline have kept us coming back every winter since the first time in our van 4 years ago. ⠀

For us traveling with our van is all about making the most of every second we are on this beautiful planet, gaining new perspectives and being self-sufficient. It’s made us highly adaptable people and has taught us to embrace challenges and the unknown! ⠀
