This week we get off the beaten path and discover a part of Europe that we've never heard about! After a fun week in Northern Spain in the Pyrenees mountains, we decided to head east in hopes of uncovering a few more secret spots! And while we knew that the mountains bordered France + Spain we had NO idea that there was a tiny country right smack in between them called Andorra 😂. I guess we learned that traveling without a plan in Europe can leave you in entirely new countries!
This lifestyle is often met with highs and lows and as we travel through the week we share quite a few of these with you. A new country means no SIM cards, a new language and learning to navigate the new surroundings. Then our worst nightmare happens and we are robbed of all our valuables. But that's a story for another time...
Our van life in Europe began when we decided to ship our van across the world in search of the next big adventure! Since then we've driven our sprinter van conversion from England - Wales - Ireland - Scotland - France - Spain - Portugal and now back to Portugal! Every week we share an episode of what it's like to van life in the city as well as van life in nature as we try to see and do most everything Europe has to offer ❤️🌎

    Good morning everyone! This week was quite the roller coaster... I mean, we ACCIDENTALLY ended up in a country we'd never heard of 😂. Just wanted to say that the "preview" clips for next week show us very upset but while our nightmare did happen yesterday we are OKAY and that's all that matters ❤️. More on of that this in the coming days x

    Me and my late husband used to travel when we were your age and also lost a camera. We were travelling through the mountains in Puerto Rico on our way to Ponce. I was handing him the camera to take a picture and it accidentally got dropped. Sadly we lost most of the pictures. It was sad, but right now I am thankful for the memories the two of you are bringing back to me. I can also identify with the break-in, only ours happened in our house. So please don't think of it as you two being more vulnerable. Bad stuff can happen no matter where you are, but is always meant to teach us something. Keeping forging ahead!

    About the data problem. Get a simcard with cheap abbo for Europe, cause no romaning costs in the EU countries. Then download the off-line maps of googlemaps. No more sim-card stress. I've got unlimited data for €30 a month.

Y’all are awesome! :) I just released an album and you’re always more than welcome to use any of the songs! In fact I’d be thrilled and honored! I think “dance again”, “till I fall” and ”treasure” would work particularly well :) Have a great one!

    ahhhhhhhh! Sucks that you dropped the camera! Here's a pro tip - put a UV filter on the lens and always keep the lens hood on. Most of the time, you'll end up breaking the filter and/or hood rather than the actual lens.

    Hey there Eamon & Bec. Hope that things are going better for you now and that the crisis is over. Very sorry that you had this experience. However, I am glad that there was no damage to the interior of your beautiful van. The stuff you lost can be replaced (although I know it will be a financial drain). However, all the love, sweat, and frustrations of redesigning your van would be much more difficult to deal with when you are away from your home base. I have a request. I wonder if you could do a video of your exercise/work-out routine that can be used when you are boondocking (per the initial few minutes of this video). I would like to incorporate some exercise while I am doing my van travel. I don't belong to a gym. I do have the flex-bands that can help with resistance training. Hope you guys continue on your awesome European travel with no further incidents. You have great videos.

    Hi do you mind Beeing you tranalating This time? Ok Eu e a filha adolescente encontramos recentemente o nosso estilo de vida nómada. Apesar dela ter aulas num sítio fixo, casas de cimento neste momento só para "matar saudades" e estamos no processo de ter cada uma a sua casa móvel. Quando ela nasceu eu só sabia que se todos os valores que lhe queria passar um deles era MT importante: somos pó de estrela num todo MT maior que imaginamos e que não há fronteiras. Somos seres humanos, cidadãos deste "mundo'" e que o que importa mesmo é viver no aqui e no agora. Olhar para o relógio apenas para nós sentirmos abençoados pq naquele preciso momento estamos vivos e tudo é uma oportunidade para ser vivida. Sim se viram algo sobre mim sabem que tenho cancro de mama há 12 anos e que metastizou à 5. É assim um pobre coitado que se agarrou às nossas vidas. Não faz mal. Tornou um animal de estimação 😁😁😁 queremos mostrar ao mundo que não há circunstâncias que não se ultrapassem e educar o mundo. Eu na saúde e ela no ambiente. E por falar em ambiente e auto suficiente estilo de vida há a coisa que estamos a pensar investir e não vemos a ser usado por ninguém. A energia aeolica. E queríamos a vossa opinião. Não são perfeitos como a captação da água da chuva tb não é nem tão eficiente como os painéis solares mas tb ajudam. O que acham? Deus vos abençoe

    The greatest thing in the world is when you watch a 20 minute youtube video and completely love it. Only to find out there are many more to watch. You have had a few rough times on this video, however you look like you have many, many more great times. The bad moments you need to appreciate the better ones. You both joke around, and have that honest excitement in your eyes. We are buying a ford Transit next summer and spend 6 months of the year travelling the states. After a few years of this, Europe is the destination I want to end up in. How much was it to move your van overseas (excuse the ignorance if you have already done a video on this, I am new to your site)? I can't wait to follow up on your previous videos. Take care, be safe and glad you are doing what most people should be doing. Sean P.S. Excuse the english its 5am! lol

    I just want to say how inspirational you both are. I've been watching your videos for a little while now, and I absolutely adore the lifestyle you two have chosen. I'm currently a dual major in college, and all I feel is stuck. I love my majors, but one is giving me serious pains that I just can't tell is worth it. But then you two come along, and with how devastating your most recent upload is, it's still amazing to me. You two are doing exactly what you want to do, not being held back by anything. I want to be like that. I want to just go off and do what I want to do. Maybe it doesn't involve a van, but to live free. Thank you Eamon and Bec, for inspiring me to just do what I want to do.
