Busking Europe, England

After a few months of being based in Yorkshire for the winter we were excited when we got the opportunity to go away for a few days and get back on the road, busking in new places once more. We were booked for a couple of gigs a few days in a row in slightly Read More

Our Van History

We love the campervan lifestyle and the freedom it gives you when travelling. The history of vans we have owned and rented before buying our current one helped us to figure out how we wanted to design ours, what features worked best in a van and what we did not like about earlier ones, to Read More

Solar Power on a Budget in a VW T4

Solar power is an absolute god send for Vanlifers and it does not have to cost that much. We very rarely stay in campsites or places that have an available electricity hook up, so an on board power system was a must.

We combined places we had busked before to be sure of making some money initially but we were more excited to venture into new countries for us. First Read More

Europe Road Trip Test (2)

JUNE 2014 We awoke on our first morning in Luzern to perfect weather. The lake looked ridiculously good whenever the sun was out and our campsite was the Camping International, a stroll away from the town just down the length of Lake Lucerne. The busking rules in Luzern state that no amplification is allowed and Read More

Diaries Intro

Every time we go on a busking trip we bring along a notebook that becomes a diary. We fill it with stories of our travels and scraps of memorabilia that people give to us or we pick up on the way. We’ve taken the interesting bits from each one and they make up the dairy Read More

Europe Road Trip Test (1)

JUNE 2014 We had an idea to test out busking in other countries away from the UK to see whether it was possible and where. Both of us had done a little travelling previously but not in the slightly unnerving scenario of how far we travelled being dependant on how much money we could make. Read More
