In this episode, we continue our travels in our converted Ford transit campervan, with our dog, Twyla, in South Australia. We’re currently making our way back from Adelaide, stopping along the way. It’s great to see Australian tourism picking up with many people traveling around Australia in caravans, campervans, RVs, and camping in tents.
Whenwe left Adelaide we headed to a small town called Hahndorf, in SA. Settled by 19th-century Lutheran migrants, it’s known for its original German-style architecture and artisanal food. Hahndorf Academy is home to the German Migration Museum, tracing local history. We ate German food for lunch at the German Inn, a 2-story 1863 hotel, with exposed stone walls and a wood-paneled ceiling. After we ate lunch, we checked out the shops. They sold German products, like cuckoo clocks, beer mugs.
After Hahndorf, we headed back through South Austalia to home in Victoria.
We hope you enjoy our channel. We often get asked, ‘what is vanlife?’ Van life is a lifestyle of living in a vehicle full or part-time. The names are compound words that derive from the fact that it is typically done in a van that has been modified with basic amenities, such as house batteries, solar panels, a bed platform, some form of the toilet, sink, and storage space. Some van-dwellers live this lifestyle by choice while seeking freedom, self-sufficiency, and mobility without paying for conventional stationary housing, while for others it may be one step from living on the street or in a shelter. In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, an idealized version has been popularized through social media with the hashtag #vanLife. Although the term van-dwelling implies living in a van, many types of vehicles may be used for permanent, mobile living arrangements, including former public buses or school buses, campervans, recreational vehicles (RVs), travel trailers, mobile homes, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and cars.
We enjoy part-time van life, creating weekly episodes that are live at 5pm (AEST) Sundays, and sharing our experiences on our travels with our cavoodle, Twyla. In our episodes we stay at free and paid campsites, showing our tips and tricks on how to make life on the road easier and fun. Come join us on our adventures!
