We have loved living in a van (self converted sprinter van) for the last year and a half and while we enjoy spending time in Canada it can get a little cold throughout the winter. So, we've decided to hit the road and drive across the continent to enjoy some warmer weather in Baja Mexico. If our last trip to this country taught us anything... it's to expect the unexpected!!
Today's episode begins in Los Angeles, where we have been living in a van for the past few days. With our chai company and friends/family back home it can be difficult to stay on the road full time for extended periods of time so this morning we drive out to San Clemente to leave our tiny home with a complete stranger! We fly home to Toronto for the biggest snow storm in years and enjoy time with the people closest to us. What's next for Eamon & Bec? You'll have to tune in to find out ;)

    Can we represent Chaiwala Chai in New Zealand and make sales for you guys? Going there in March for 5 months road tripping in a van! BTW update your link in the description it's missing the 's' on http and it does not open on Mac/Safari because of all the changes in privacy policies and stuffs.

    Hi .you probably won't see this as I'm quite a long way behind in your story because it's October 2019 . I started watching your story on van life and think you are living the dream. You are an amazing and beautiful couple and my favourite people ever. Just seen the one where you have left you van with a nice man to go back to Canada. Don't worry I cry at the queen film too. Keep the good work up I love your world . Loads and love . James. In UK. X

    However strange this might sound, if Trinity isn't an immediate part of your surroundings, you guys don't seem as whole. I guess it's because I'm use to seeing you guys in it, idk.

    This comment is actually about a prior video when you said your phone bill was over ?300/month...have you looked into getting a US phone? T-Mobile has a US/Canada and I think Mexico unlimited for around $60 US. Their internet is really good, I think you could use a ups store address and manage online.....luv Thumper!

    I love that you guys care about the environment! Plant based FTW! When I get to the west coast Veggie Grill is one of my favorite placed to get to, too! Two times at least! Also, Bec get your Mom to upgrade to a Tesla Model 3! She will save money on fuel, and cut her contribution to GHG! Not as much as Plant Based, but still good! And no periods were harmed in the making of this comment!!!

    Hey lovely People! I've just recently discovered your podcasts and I have to tell you WOW! Bec, you're such a natural, talented speaker I love the way you sum up stuff. Eamon, you're great at leading people back to the original topic when they go completely off. Currently, I am totally dissatisfied my lifestyle and career (working in an office 9-5) and I think listening to your 'how to start a small business' podcast actually gave me the final push to really start what I've always wanted to do, quit this what I am doing now and never look back. You two are so inspiring because whatever you do reflects the incredible amount of work you're putting into your projects! I am a huge fan of your lifestyle and view on life...I don't know if I can praise you anymore but for sure will do it in future comments!:) Stay blessed! x

    Hi Eamon and Bec, i actually started to follow on your channel after watching Max&Lee + Occy. Your channel is amazing, full of information and inspiration. Definitely helped me to figure out how i wanna travel in a vehicle in future. However i have this one question and i hope you both can share how you both overcome it if you both went through it. I started to vlog recently about places i travel to but i can't help with the camera shyness and awkwardness. Any useful tips or ways to overcome it? Thanks in advance! Have a safe journey to wherever you heading to! Cheers 🥂
