This week we are lucky enough to have two more guests joining us for some adventures in Europe only this time we all move into a house to avoid getting a little too close for comfort! As you know, Eamon and I LOVE living in a van and getting to share that lifestyle with our friends and family is so exciting so we make sure that we give my sister and her boyfriend a little taste of van life too :).
Join us as we explore Lisbon, Portugal and the south region of the Algarve Lagos! We get up to a heck of a lot of fun with all our "free time" and enjoy stand up paddle boarding through the Bengali caves, go-karting on a speedy track and soaking up every bit of time we have with our family ❤️.

    Las Vegas! You guys should get the portable air conditioner! It’s 89 bucks and charges with a usb port. You can fill it with ice as cold as you want it would make your tiny home super cold on those warm days o. The road and save battery life. Cheers! Love your channel! Huge fan! Totally doing this when I retire in 8 years! Hugs!

    Guys I love your channel but some of the information here is really not accurate. Not everything in Feira da Ladra is stolen. At all. And the portuguese don't sleep siesta (if they did it would be called sesta, not siesta, since we don't speak Spanish), but places do close for lunch between 1 and 3pm.

  25. guillem mañé

    guillem mañé5 months ago

    I'm sorry but i have to bring it up... its okay to eat vegan, organic, healthy... get your energy from solar that's really nice... But you should look that when you requiere a sevice like uber to have in mind that are companies than don't pay taxes at the country they are giving you the service. the "eployees" are fake self-eployed so the big company don't cover the worker if they have any ingured, if the get sick... I don't know in canada, but here in europe those are really important rigths that many people fougth to aquire. So my point here is when you travell you should look at the options that are less harmfull for the local people and medium. Next time order a taxi, yes it will be 2€ more expensive but you would be paying an eployee with decend working rights. I'm sorry to point that out but I'm from Barcelona and seeing how the youth can't move away becaus your incom is less than the rent of a flat because of RB&Bs, that's hurtfull for the locals. I know it's improbable but I hope you read this and I also want to say that i absolutely love your videos.

    I feel like it's such a shame that you were in the Algarve, and particularly Lagos during the busy season. I've lived there for a year and the off season is so much nicer. Its real mellow and relaxed in winter, more like sleepy surftowns if you go west from lagos. Still great weather most of the time, and great winds too for Eamons kiteboarding, just bring a good wetsuit 😉 Alot of the tourist-style boutiques are closed, but there are still coffeeshops, restaurants and bars, and supermarkets and stuff that will be open. I think you would enjoy winter alot more anyways, imagine all those pretty places by the cliffs and beaches practically abandoned 🥰

    Trent and Allie are too scripted and fakeish sounding, LEAW leave everything and wander, Sara and Luca, are basically "Ferrari style" hippies with Italian accents. Watching them is also annoying because they come across as a B rated documentary film crew. You guys are far more entertaining and exciting, your interesting diet as well as unique differences make your channel exciting and fresh and you are super spontaneous! I love the spontaneity of your videos. I love that you are grounded and humble as well as genuine in your responses. Love from Colorado USA ❤❤❤❤❤ much much love!

    I'm assuming you didn't learn anything about your vans mechanics and therefore you're being taken advantage of. I'm pretty sure they did not "hook it up". Haven't been to Portugal but traveling through Italy was full of people waiting to take advantage of us. Including gypsy types who straight tried to rob us. Luckily it didn't work. Stay alert. Lots of adventure and amazing memories and experience to be gained but just remember... You're out of your element. You are definitely not "cultured"

    I love watching your guys' videos and love your openminded attitudes to all the difficult cultures you've visited. I wish you wouldn't encourage people to "take the beaten path" at these touristy scenic viewing locations. A lot of the flora fauna ecosystem is very fragile and if everyone who visited just trampled through wherever they wanted, there wouldn't be much left for people to see other than dirt. Let's help nature stay natural so it can be enjoyed sustainably for generations and generations :) And tuning in from Calgary, AB!
