This is the story of how a nomadic couple, Molly and Al, have gone from living on the road in their converted bus to living in a homestead on their own land in New Zealand.

When you go through their homestead you’ll see they still have their house truck. In addition, you’ll find they have tiny structures throughout that serve a variety of purposes to meet their needs. You’ll also see the Molly and Al are now growing their own food, using solar and wind power, and more. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This van dwelling story is a guest post by Mat and Danielle – share yours here!

We’re Mat and Danielle – two Canadian, minimalist nomads who are exploring long-term travelling, house sitting, and living/working in our 2002, Ford E-150 conversion van. We’re sharing our ongoing lifestyle experiments on YouTube and on our blog: Exploring Alternatives.

We started travelling 2.5 years ago after selling our house and quitting our jobs. We travelled to Costa Rica, California, Australia and Thailand for almost a year, using our savings and the money we made from the sale of our house. Then we secured online work that allowed us to keep moving for another year, so we travelled to Iceland, Germany, Spain and the United States.

We officially moved into the van several months ago and are travelling across Canada. We’re working in cities/towns during the week, and camping/hiking on the weekends. We stealth camp, sleep in Walmart parking lots, park in the driveways of friends and family, and camp in provincial parks.
