After an incredible 3 years of living, working and travelling in our self converted Sprinter Van we’ve had to make the very tough decision to abandon our tiny home in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for so, so many of us, this global pandemic has absolutely flipped our world upside down. What went from a virus that seemed far away in China, quickly made it’s way across the globe forcing us to quarantine in our 60 sq-ft in Morocco. And while quarantining was going well for us it became apparent that things would be different for a long while. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. The gravity of what we’ve just done hasn’t quite sunk in and we ((especially me (Bec)) are having a really hard time adjusting to our new reality. Having said that we think the most important thing we can all do now is STAY HOME, keep healthy with healing foods & try to look at this as a time that we (and the planet) desperately needed to reset and realign. Sending each of you so much love throughout this time x

VAN TOUR after 2 years living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels bit.ly/newvantour
OVERLANDING AFRICA IN OUR SPRINTER VAN has been the adventure we’ve always hoped it would be but it’s hard to predict what happens next. In fact, we are still processing everything that has happened over the last week and continues to happen... No one knows where we will end up, where our beloved tiny home on wheels will make it or for how long this pandemic will take over life as we know but all we can do is try to remain positive and move forward in the direction that feels right for us. We hope you are all keeping safe during this time ❤️.

    Bec, your sensitivity is what makes you so special. You burn out because you take on a lot of feeling and energy. You don’t ever need to explain or apologize for the amazing gift that you have. Eamon is your rock. Feel what you feel. Share when you can. It actually makes me feel better that I am sensitive. You aren’t complaining. You both are keeping it real. Change is hard for a sensitive person. You are going to make this home so warm and cozy. Celebrate your gift. NEVER apologize for it. We need your heart in this world. ❤️🙏

    I hope you guys educated your selfs On this fake ass virus by now. I’m not saying it wasn’t anything but it was because of the effects of the new roll out of 5G that attacks elderly and people who are already sick with health issues. One things for sure it’s a weapon to be used at a later date. Do your research. Did you know before this virus came out there were more than 50 new buries that went up all across the word with guess what products they were selling?? Hand sanitizers ! What a coincidence yea right !! Plain pandemic. You guys seems smart hope you’ve figured it all out by now.

    What's going to happen? Is the plan to go back to Africa and continue the journee? I took a shot in checking all the sattelite data that's available on the internet but it's too old to see Trin. The data is from january. But I did find the exact spot. So if you're interested I can send you the screenshot through instagram.

    I have been watching the new van build with fascination August 2020. What you have done is incredible, I cannot think that you will not stay in the new van as it is so superior. What plans do you have for Trinity, and how are you going to get back there? I presume they are still charging you for the parking lot in Casablanca and her poor battery will be flat by now. Would love to know your plans in the next video. You two are so hard working, such an inspiration for so many, sending love 💙❤️

    There is big diffrence between being educated and ignorant. To be honest, I liked the Spirit when you started traveling in Morocco (reason why i kept watching your videos) but once the outbreak is announced, you start running like headless chickens, wanting to go home NOW like you're the only one affected by this. Also what i didn't understand this ideology of overbuying like there is no tomorrow in place among the safest places in world in this outbreak, where food and renting is unfairly cheap, just to get to the airport throw everything and go in place filled with other tourists, to be able to run to a country where cases are more than ten times where you were. IF ONLY! you asked for help (Couchsurfing, social media or asking a local family in ''worse cases''...), even in extrem cases if you got the virus (which is not fatale for you as a young couple with no health problem as i noticed) the government of Morocco opened its 5 stars Hotels for free for sick people till they recover (14 days minimum 5 stars with food all free of charges), this was on USlikes and Social Media and News. Also there was a Green number (free phone number) for people ''Stuck'' or having problems related to the Coronavirus and also for money give away for people that cant pay for food for two months... but you didn't ask for help you just waited for it to be serve on silver plat.
