After successfully shipping our van to England from Canada & enjoying our last week in Wales we decided to ferry over to Dublin, Ireland! In this week long van life vlog we explore the city of Dublin (Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc), enjoy the city of Cork and fall in love with the seaside town of Greystones. In Greystones we have the pleasure of meeting our new friends Dave & Steve of the Happy Pear! These two are leaders in the plant based movement in Ireland and across the world and it was a real pleasure getting to live a day in the life of the Happy Pear :). We then cut across the country to check out the Cliffs of Moher and choose the WORST camping spots since living in a van - we almost flooded our tiny house! Have no fear… we manage to call a tow truck in the knick of time. However, our bad luck with Mother Nature continues as we hit the Wild Atlantic Way just in time to be rained on for 3 days straight. Still learning to embrace this crazy weather ;)

    Hey guys, just wanted to say I think this video encapsulates all that is great about you guys and your channel. It really showcases how far you've come as film makers with great shots and selective drone use and nothing too overpowering... The story telling is on point... The sense of fun... The colab... The adventure... The screw it let's hike in the rain anyway... Honestly such a good video and really love it! Safe travels ❤️😎💪

  78. TheRisskee

    TheRisskeeYear ago

    Hey, mates! I feel so dumb that I waited to watch all your videos because I would have totally told you that you could stay at my family estate in Leinster! I'm face-palming so hard right now. Ugh! I'm in California but we have a place in the midlands and you would have loved the locals. When my part of the family come they know we're vegetarian and they've learned a shit tonne of recipes and they've gotten creative with it. We have little pot lucks and such and they would've put on a bash for you. (I haven't been to Ireland in a freaking long time but my family there say they still do the vegetarian pot lucks. Lol) We have a lot of grassland so the little sheepees feast on our greens. Just a helpful tip if you end up going back to Ire, a lot of shepherds can be really protective of their flock, especially if they're keeping them in a smaller area instead of letting them roam, so if Eamon gets his wheelie thing out and goes at the sheep like I saw in the clip, beware of the shepherds. LOL! They will lose it on you even if you aren't being malicious. Many do carry rifles. I hope you go back, though! If you do, hopefully I'll be paying attention so I can dm you with the addy and let the fambam know if you'd like to stay. The best part is waking up in the morning and walking out into the field and the mist swirling around your legs. I miss it so much! ❤️😎🤙

    I like how the bed has walls on the sides. My family lived in a trailer for a few years. It didn't move. It just sat in the trailer park, at least until someone towed it to the next park, perhaps a year later. But, about the bed, having walls, I loved that. It was one of top parts of the trailer. Other good things were, seeing every family member every day, cooking outdoors, and just generally being outdoors a lot. Houses are nice. But they are very expensive to maintain. And, sometimes, they prevent you from enjoying life. Right now, I can't even see or hear other family members. Probably the closest person is my middle son, who is about 20 feet away right now, with two closed doors between me and him. We lived in a 700 square foot condo when he was born. It cost about 30% what this house costs to buy and more importantly to maintain. And, it was fun. It's like everyone is in the same space, all together, all of the time. You like see what people are doing on the computer. You know what video games they are playing. What homework they have. You work on each other's projects constantly, because you are always right there. Houses are nice too though. Storage was an issue in the condo, not in the house. Also, the house comes with a backyard. That's probably the best part.
