I love how the seasons provide the perfect time to visit a place. This picture was taken in June. Right now, this road is most probably and quite literally an icefield parkway. I'm currently down in the south for the winter months enjoying one of the main advantages of vanlife: following pleasant weather.

Take me to the beach every day please. I'm escaping winter for the second year in a row and it's easy to forget how lucky I am to be able to do this. The down side is Florida ain't so easy for vanlife, but I'm making due!

It was getting pretty muggy and freezing here in Toronto last week so I took off on an impromptu search of sun. Jamaica was a blast! From delicious jerk chicken on the beach, to funny locals peddling ganja by kayak, to stand up paddle boarding, to scorching sun, you're bound to find relaxation in this turquoise paradise. Thanks for the picture (and the trip) @siobhanhawley. One love, swipe for more, ya mon!

Spot the camper. If there's something traveling has made clear to me, it's that we're so small in this big world. That's not to say an individual can't make a big impact. Quite the contrary, one mind can change the world, as we've seen countless times throughout history. Let's each do our part to keep it livable and in balance. ✌️

Time is something I think about a lot. The passage of time is our lens into the changes we see in people, our families, our cities, and societies as a whole. The problem is our time is limited, and I'm particularly guilty of wasting a lot of it. We all waste time in different ways. For me it's through silly indecisions, the impossible chase for perfection, or searching for the best deal. It's about time I valued my time.

The charm of a little mountain town. I'm currently waiting on an engine part (EVR solenoid) before I can put it back together and hopefully fix my check engine light. It's getting close to a southern departure and the excitement is running high.

It doesn't get any easier, and that shouldn't be the goal. Surround yourself with beauty and challenges will still arise. That's the interesting thing about the human condition, everyone chases their glorified "end" goal without realizing there is no end. I'm convinced that true satisfaction can only come from consistent progress towards ever more accomplishments. Here's to beautiful days and growth.

I miss the stillness of the wild. No cell reception and no wind made this night especially quiet. The kind of quiet where you can almost hear your breathing. I can't wait to get back out there and explore new spots from the comfort of my home on wheels!

That time I squeezed Gus through a giant redwood. It might look like there was still space but look how close the mirror is to touching. It was the same on the other side! I love finding unplanned stop overs like this. What's your favorite?

Throwback to my first van circa July 2016. I still find the Vanagons terribly cute and I would have loved the manual transmission. Alas, it wasn't meant to be and the Ford has proven to be much more reliable (*knocks on wood*)!

Portal view to Toronto. In my last month here, the reality of taking off to the south again is setting in. I'll be missing friends and family, but the call of the road and unexplored natural gems is strong. It's been almost a year since I first left for California in my car. After three months of working on endless projects for the van, I'm eager to stretch its legs and keep going. I can't wait to be out of the city and back into the wild.

Sometimes I dream about boat life. What's it like to sail the world? I surely wouldn't stay in the harbor, but this one in downtown Vancouver was beautiful: dark blue ocean speckled with lazy floating sail boats, against a backdrop of fancy condos and hazy mountains.

This world may be cruel, it may be crazy, but it's still the best humanity has probably ever seen. Let's keep going and make it even better. We have to force big business to start respecting our beautiful planet or our kids may find themselves in a world spiralling out of its delicate balance.

Cozy sunny mornings. This is what I wake up to after a stealthy night in the city. Whether it's light, sound, heat, or cold, something is bound to wake me up early and naturally so I don't really need an alarm clock. The little monitor in the corner tells me the voltage of the house batteries, the time, and the outside and inside temperature. On a hot day the temperature difference can be as much as 15c, but at night it's usually only a couple of degrees warmer inside. .

Spot the van! This is my little piece of paradise, as seen from the air. Just south-east of Balboa peninsula, this strip overlooks a calm channel where you can watch boats cruise back and forth all day and all night long. There's a beautiful small beach and a longer beach backed by spectacular multi million dollar homes up on its bluff.

Let's go back to San Diego. It's almost a year ago now that I left Toronto in my car in search of a sunny "winter". This time I'm a little more prepared. Who's coming with me!?

Let the light in. My van has a total of 10 windows on the first level and 5 on the penthouse: the front 3, 2 sliding on the left, 1 sliding and 2 barn door on the right, 2 barn door in the rear, and 5 zip open on the canvas. I really lucked out in finding this build, I'm not sure I could have picked a better Sportsmobile for the price!

My stand up work desk. The most asked question about traveling full time is "how do you make money?" Some people work a "traditional" job for a few months, save, travel and repeat. A lot of people work remotely for a company, or many companies. Some have their own businesses (myself included). By far the most conducive path to "freedom" is building up sources of passive income. We live in an age where almost anything can be done online, including work. Why not take advantage of it?

Love is always in the air in Laguna! The strip of beaches from Laguna Beach all the way down to South Laguna is walkable and absolutely breathtaking. From rock arches, to impressive homes and hotels, to art galleries and restaurants, it pretty much can't be beat.

Desert camping. This was the first spot I camped at in complete wilderness. I drove a few miles down a dirt road and stopped by this little river. The night brought with it complete silence. The clear skies gave way to a dazzling starry show. Everything felt so peaceful, and then the wind started to blow.

The view out my penthouse window is like a changing picture frame on my wall. What's the best part of vanlife? The ability to move your house to a new backyard (and front and side yard) whenever you like! There's definitely a lot of work that goes into maintaining the lifestyle so that everything goes smoothly: from making money, to van mechanicals, to taking care of leaks, paint, and cleanliness. However these are things that are part of everyone's life, vanlife or not. We just do it a little differently.

Welcome home. This is my usual set up. I leave one bed plank up on top over the fridge and closet to use as an extra stand-up table. I put up the little table to eat or to hold the laptop. I sleep on the downstairs bed in couch mode as pictured, unless I'm having a guest. That's what I love about this layout, I'm not shuffling everything around between sleeping, cooking, or chilling. Everything mostly stays as is. All I have to do is put loose objects away, put the top down, and I'm ready to roll!

I was surprised to find that parking is pretty easy in Southern California (other than LA). Tons of *free* ocean side parking? Yes please! True, you usually have to get there early, if not from the night before ;)
.
Watch out for those pesky street cleaning times. I got nabbed twice with tickets because I forgot to check for street cleaning, having parked there before many other times. One of those times I just quickly pulled over to secure something in the back with my four way flashers on, and within seconds parking patrol was behind me in their little cart.
