Gael lived and worked in San Francisco for years, but the high cost of living made it impossible for her to retire there. So instead, she purchased a tiny home and secured a spot at Tiny Tranquility in Oregon.

Her beautiful home is filled with her artwork – pencil drawings and intricate scratch designs – and she has a comfortable recliner to sleep in (it’s the best option for her back). The only regret she has with her tiny home is the tiny bathroom!

Who said van-life was only for youngsters? Virginia (@veevanvoom on Instagram) is an incredible woman from Canada who was inspired by tiny house television shows to retire early in her own van conversion. That’s right, van life retirement!

She worked for 38 years as a massage therapist and with the help of some friends and experts built out her very own custom van home. Virginia even carved out some space in her little van for her massage table! She already traveled through her home country of Canada and is currently traveling through the states, building community and exploring beautiful places as she goes. Thanks Tiny Home Tours/YouTube for the great video tour you can watch below!
