After one autumn dinner with inspiring American travel families we have finally switched to a van. The length of our home on wheels shrunk from bold 12 metres to 6 metres. And we returned to Turkey, Thasos & explored Halkidiki for the spring.
We truly love traveling. It’s always been the highlight of our lives. The vehicles we ride on have changed over the years, though. The biggest upgrade to our family travels yet is here. After 7 years of exploring Europe on a camping trailer, we’re buying something radically new — a van.
