Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here: ), we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to ;) which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. was a major adjustment and so different than flying every week like we were used to, but we are incredibly thankful to be able to continue doing something we love every day. 😊🎥🌎

If I were moving around as often as you, I'd choose the van. But if I were going to relocate less often, the bus.

This is so cool I am not sure which one I would choose bc the bus has so much space and more convient to live in without travelling but it is more expensive on gas and the van is smaller more uncomfortable compared to the bus and less water and stuff but you save on gas and easier to park and travel in.
