A Little About Me
Hi, I’m Hilary! I created this van life blog to share my love of budget travel, remote work, and inspire others to pursue the nomadic lifestyle.
After living abroad in a range of locations including Spain and Beijing, China, I took my travels to a domestic level so I could still explore (without breaking the bank). Van life was the perfect way to make that happen.
But it hasn’t come without its challenges. From building out a van, leaving corporate life for freelancer life, to making friends on the road–it’s been a life-changing journey!
