Sometimes a place overwhelms us with unexpected beauty. Saskatchewan is one such place. When our friend Julian of Go-Van reached out to us wondering if we were up for a vanlife meet up in Saskatchewan, we exclaimed YES. Followed by Saskatche-WHERE?
Three years ago, when we left New England, I could not sit ten feet from the van in the dark without spooking myself crazy. Peeing outside of the van during the night was a feat to be celebrated. Convinced that a predatory wild animal, mythical werewolf or serial killer was lurking behind a bush ready to pounce, I would count down the seconds before my life was sucked away.
The follow interview was first published on Go-Van.com.
In my travels, I had the chance to cross path with Emily and Corey from Where’s My Office Now, they’ve been inspiring nomads for almost three years with their Vanagon named Boscha and their dog Penny! You probably heard about the web series about modern nomads they’ve been working on for a little while now, and here it is! I thought of doing a little interview about the behind the scenes of producing a such major project like this while being on the road. At the end of the post you’ll find the 5 videos. Enjoy!
The van is parked in the middle of chaos, in the eye of a human storm known as Walmart. The field of pavement rises to meet me, and as I circle the van checking out tonight’s home, the security guard circles me with his lights strobing. This, is van life.
