VanEver wonder how it would feel to break the monotony of life and run for the hills?

It sounds pretty naive, but you will be surprised that even in today’s world the nomadic lifestyle definitely hasn’t lost its appeal. Just visualizing the idea of breaking the shackles of daily activities and driving into the unknown abyss excites the adrenaline charging through your system. The mystery of the next turn, the frenzy and  the rush that seizes your being when you watch nature making its miracles around you. It surely is overwhelming for the born adventurer.

But would you be willing to leave your life behind for the alien outdoors? Maybe not …

However, there are many who have by choice or due to circumstances chosen to go mobile and shift their lodgings into a four wheeler. Now it may seem pretty exciting that they just let go and venture forth to experience the world around them. Nonetheless, risking a standard lifestyle of maintaining a steady job, a house and overall, a stationary life these Vandwellers, as they are termed, take major risks to make this transition.

You might have heard your friends talk about a certain somebody who drove off in his van and is now living life to its full potential traveling the country, working as a blogger or a photographer. Hearing their thrilling adventures may ignite a flicker in your heart to follow their footsteps as it all sounds pretty much taken out of a movie.
