What is VANLIFE?

Simply put, opposite the 'normal life' there is also an increasingly popular alternative lifestyle and it's called VANLIFE. Life in a 'van' (van). In other words, you live and live completely in a van, bus, camper or other vehicle.

It is a lifestyle adopted by many Digital Nomads who are looking for a basic lifestyle, while being able to travel the world in complete freedom.

VANLIFE history

Living in your house on wheels has been around since the XNUMXs. It was popularized by hippies who started living from their vehicles. Though often looked down upon, this kind of lifestyle is slowly starting to become the norm again. Recently, this old practice has made a huge comeback through millennials and Instagram is really full of it.

VANLIFE popularity

A van's life has been exploding on social media lately. especially on Instagram, where you can search #vanlife and be exposed to over 3 million posts (at the time of writing this blog). This number is only expected to grow rapidly.

Many 'vanlifers' have documented their entire journey on Instagram, making the platform the most popular social network for vanlifers. While YouTube and Facebook are slowly catching up, Instagram is definitely where you can find the most inspiration right now.

With its growing popularity, many vanlifers have already had the opportunity to be sponsored or interviewed by major brands and companies. This nomadic lifestyle is no longer cluttered with the old stereotypes, it is starting to become a real hype in which there is money to be made.
