Very soon we have been full time vanlifers for a year, living in our homemade Styrbjörn the van. We built the interior on our own before we started our journey around Europe a year ago.
We published a video on facebook where we show the inside of our van.
You can see it here.
Since we now know a bit more about what is working and what's not we have decided to make some changes inside, build a new kitchen for example. We start next week and I will keep the blog updated with the progress.

Finally the sun came back ☀️ we are enjoying it as much as we can, living the vanlife!
We finally found a surfboard and of course we had to try it, without any waves. I must say that we did great ;) pro surfers!
And some posing with the new vintage bathing suit that we found the other day, a bit hard to take off...
Right now we are trying to figure out where to go next. The air is getting colder here in Sweden and we are going to chase the sun, but where? Greece maybe? Or Portugal? We're not sure yet.
While we are thinking of the future we might as well enjoy the Swedish vanlife. Still not to cold to take a swim in the ocean on our favorite beach ;)
We had some amazing weeks on Gotland with morning swims in the sea, great food, mystical light phenomenons, lovely nature and some freelancing work. Perfect place for vanlife on this beautiful island.
We have something that you might call summer one day every week right now, the rest of the time it's cold and rainy and grey.
But this weekend the sun was shining over us, for a while. We went to skrea beach in falkenberg, the best beach* in Sweden! For an hour we became kids again, young souls ;) we jumped from the bridge in to the ocean and played with a ball that we found. So much fun 💙
We've had the best weekend ever ❤
Vilda & Tyra, The next generation vanlifers visited us this weekend. Coolest girls ever! We took Styrbjörn the van and parked on the beach and we had the best time.
Checked out all the "cool" cars at wheels & wings in falkenberg, had a pizza and then went back to Styrbjörn for a night under the moon.
The morning after, when we woke up, it was summer!!
Breakfast in the sun, our traditional Nutella-breakfast.
And of course some diving at our favorite spot.
Hmm, can you have too many skateboards and longboards. I guess we kind of have. Especially since we are only using two of them most of the time :)
What we actually do need is surfboards, then our collection is complete!
We parked Styrbjörn the van on this empty beach on the Swedish west coast.
This is vanlife when it's best! The sunset over the ocean in the evening and then to wake up on an empty beach and just go down to take a swim. Couldn't be better!
... maybe the weather thou, it could be a bit warmer :D
Niklas matched his pants with our zebra striped Sacco and the interior in the van while acting a mechanic and fixing Styrbjörn :) ❤
When we were going to leave we almost got stuck, someone had locked the gate out from the beach... but styrbjörn is so small so we managed to drive beside the gate ;)
In December last year we visited Poland over the day, we had heard about a really strange place with a lot of mystery.
Krzywy Las, also known as "the crooked forest" is something extraordinary and no one can really explain what have happen there.
400 trees in the middle of a forest is mystically bent in a c-shaped curve in the bottom of every tree. There is a lot of different theories; witchcraft, some strange gravity from the ground or that a human have shaped the trees this way.
No one knows the answer, when the world war 2 started the town Gryfino was abandoned and no one lived there for 60 years.
Right now you can find our reportage about this strange place in the magazine Allers, out in the stores now! One of the few reportages that we had manage to send before the robbery in our van, where we lost a lot of work that we made. Glad we sent this one :)
