I’ve always loved vanlife and road trips, but it wasn’t until the panny-d when I finally invested in a camper van of my own. I’ve road tripped across Australia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Bulgaria and many more. Buying my own campervan has been a big learning curve and I’ve picked up a lot of great tips along the way. Here I share all my guides on getting a camper van of your own, road trip inspiration, vanlife health checks and solo female vanlife.
Road Trip Inspiration
Want to hire a van or buy one of your own? Where will you take it first? There’s so many amazing places to go on a road trip, Australia was one of my favourites! But even within the UK there are so many wonderful destinations, I had a blast taking my camper van to Cornwall, Devon and Wales. Here’s some great road trip inspiration to get you started:
Ever wondered how I manage to snag SUCH great travel deals and save so much on accommodation, airfare and travel? my Travel Resources will give you access to all my favourite booking websites and all the best places to get travel essentials on a budget. My goal is to help you save money so you can spend more on your adventures once you arrive.
Investing in a campervan was one of the best decisions I’ve made, it’s given me the freedom to work and travel, to have a flexible base, and has brought me closer to the vanlife community where I’ve made some great friends. Here’s tips for how you can get started in vanlife:
Vanlife has exploded across the travel scene over recent years. The phenomenon has become one of the most sought-after travel experiences for young wanderlusters. Perhaps it's the endless freedom or the return to a simpler lifestyle that appeals.
It’s easy to get swept up in all the vanlife products out there but it can quickly get expensive if you don’t know what you need. Here I share my vanlife essentials, the products and things I’ve invested in that have really made campervan life easier and more comfortable.

I didn’t realise how few solo female vanlifers were out there until I started travelling solo in the van. I love helping to give women the confidence to buy a camper van and feel safe while travelling alone in a van. I absolutely love my solo trips and have travelled all over the UK. I also now give talks at vanlife festivals about solo female travel to help inspire future female vanlifers.
It’s so important when your van is also your home to ensure it is in the best possible health. Regular checks can save you from expensive repairs and if you’re regularly driving long distances, these checks become even more important. Make sure you’re ready for every eventuality!
I’ve always loved being outside and exploring in nature, but since having my camper van it’s become a huge part of my life. I adore wild camping and escaping into the woods or to the beaches. Wild swimming has become a regular occurrence for me and brings me so much peace. It’s a wonderful way to connect with the great outdoors and get away from my laptop. Check out these guides on camping and I’ll have lots of wild swimming guides very soon!
