Step into the world of a new generation of modern gypsies: a range of professionals and creatives who have ditched conventional houses for the freedom of the road and the beauty of the outdoors.

Vanlife Diaries celebrates the nomadic lifestyle and community through interviews, advice for living on the road, and more than two hundred photos of these tiny rolling homes.

The book features vanlifers, their pets, and their converted vans and buses—VWs, Sprinters, Toyotas, and more—as well as the stunning natural locations that are part of the movement’s inspiration. Interviews and narrative captions share the stories of these dreamers and seekers, their inspiration for downsizing, how they found and converted their vehicle, and what it’s like to work and live on the road.
