Moving day. Of course it’s raining. Was weird to pack and not have to put everything in a backpack. A lot of organizing to do and some things to finish off, but from today we live in a van! Link to original post on Facebook
Welcome. I don’t use this much blog anymore, but there is still some good content here from back in the day, and I still travel a lot. Now though I just share on my Facebook and Youtube channels and then share that content here.
After a day off we were making the bed, making insulated window blinds and doing a final clean inside Lemonade. Then our least favourite part, shopping for home stuff. Bought our bedding and kitchenware stuff. Tomorrow we move into the van full time. Gonna have
Testing the mattress to cut before heading out to work today. Now it feels real! Link to original post on Facebook with more images
Been a mixed few days. Slow progress because of rain and closed shops with the public holiday. But sunshine and tan top ups the last couple days! We designed and built these bench / bed extension / storage units and great to see them working.
We were feeling it today so instead of working on the van we made a building supply run and on the way home Calina said "hey wanna try this road on Google maps?" 20 minutes later we were on an off road journey with lemonade.
More work today but in 24 c sunshine near the beach. Beautiful! Lots of little bits, painting, curtain rails, secret compartment, trim all over and a slide out bed extension and table arm which just happened cause there was a hole there 😊. Our beach
Almost! She is getting so close now. Floors are done back and front, and Today we made the bed permanent and complete. If we wanted we could move in to Lemonade now. But lots of trim work and of course building the drawers which are
First proper day of working here in Budva Montenegro. Yesterday we got rained out after an hour and today got asked to move more out of site (which is fair enough as we're building a campervan in a parking lot at a beach 😊 ).
And now we are in Budva Montenegro. Beautiful town on the beach and although it is not warm enough to go for a dip, it is not snowing and it is great to be by the sea. Yesterday we saw loads of paragliders flying from
Yesterday we drove out of Macedonia and through Albania, which is a strange place with amazing countryside, maybe it's somewhat sinister feel is tinted by having to bribe the border official to cut Lemonades full cavity search short (or in his words, buy us a
Had to work at the mechanics and then it poured down with rain, but we got some paint on her and patched up some holes in the roof. Tomorrow we head to Montenegro for a week in an apartment after which we will hopefully have
Wrote a post about our travels after Iceland. Covering London, Romania and Macedonia. Also a little van building thingy, say hello to Lemonade 🙂 Keeping things fresh with Lemonade Here I am about 2 months later keeping things consistant by saying I am going to
We built cupboards, Calina climbed a tree and we watched the sun set on another day of the van build. Oh and I think Easter happened or something… Link to original post on Facebook with more images

More work yesterday into darkness so no pics of the days work results, but we got most of the walls up. It's tricky because the van has so many curves it is a constant compromise on how things go up. But it was great to
Beautiful day in Ohrid today. Went shopping for wood amd stuff, battoned out the windows in preparation for the wall panels tomorrow, and did a bit more on the bed frame. Oh and also had a delicious lunch with this incredible view and incredible person…

Yesterday we installed the solar panel and today it somehow took 6 hours to build and install two wheel arch boxes / under bed shelves. But they are strong and in place and we have to cut everything with a hacksaw so I think we’re
Can’t install a solar panel in the rain. So drove up to a paragliding launch on the snow line and down the other side of the mountain. Can’t wait to be able to sleep in the van with views like this. Link to original post
