↟ Break Away Tale NR 171 // @thevanguysproject

We are David & Manu.⠀
David is from North Wales and I (Manu) am from Spain, We had both moved to Liverpool and we first found each other on Tinder! (I know, I know). After 10 months of spending pretty much every day together, we decided to make my dream a reality (get a van and live in it, travelling around the world) and David’s dream (travelling, visiting and helping out at Buddhist meditation centres around the world).⠀

After some online research and some time following other great Van Life blogs, we started looking for a van. During our first week of searching, all we found were expensive vans or vans with a ton of mileage and problems. Then, we came across Sarah’s van on Gumtree, Sarah was also getting away from 9-5 life and she was going travelling, so she had sell her van as soon as possible. We contacted her, asked some questions and just 5 hours later we were in Nottingham having a look at our future baby, Tara!⠀

Of course, we realised that Tara wasn’t perfect and she needed a lot of work doing before she would be but Tara was ours!⠀
We both work online. We run our own freelance business, doing website design, graphic design and online marketing for different clients all over the world.⠀

Our objective in a “short time” is to go around Europe, in the near future we will be visiting Scotland, France, Spain and Portugal. We want to see many more places and are really excited about visiting Italy and Norway!
