We’re Alec and Becca and we’ve now been living in our self-converted Volkswagen Crafter for two years. We’re accompanied by our pups – Syl, who’s a Husky/GSD, Malamute/Lab cross and Gus (or Gustav if we’re being formal) who is an unidentified mix who we found at around five weeks old while exploring Montenegro.
Our first trip was around ten months and took us from Scandinavia right the way down to Croatia and Montenegro, finishing in the French Alps for a ski season – something we loved so much we headed out to do another this winter just gone (2018/19).
The dogs (or just Syl initially) are in fact one of the main reasons we chose to travel Europe and specifically in a van – adventures are nowhere near as fun if they can’t come along and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Here we’re sharing tips and tricks we’re discovering in our meanderings on the road, how we’ve found travelling accompanied by our two furry companions, photos, recommendations, and I’m sure lots of ‘what-not-to-dos’ for any of you hoping to do the same.
The ‘Drawing’ part comes in because I (Becca) would also love the opportunity to showcase some of my artwork here in the hope of selling the odd piece to help fund our trips!
Happy reading – we would love to hear from you – and maybe see you on the road someday soon!
