Travel Journalist Built Her Van in 15 Days!


Jennie is a remarkable woman who has lived a full life traveling the globe as a journalist. She had to pivot when the world shut down in 2020, and ended up living out of her car while planning her van conversion. Once she got her hands on the van, it only took her 15 days to complete the conversion, using metal IKEA cabinets and an IKEA couch for the main infrastructure.

The interior of the van is all Beatles-themed, with “Yellow Submarine” pillows, a Beatles quilt, and all kinds of fun knickknacks related to the band. She’s been able to visit all 50 states and all the national parks in the lower 48 states during her past couple years of travel. Enjoy her tour below!
