The legendary VW Westfalia camper van, came on the road back in the 1950's and marked the beginning of a new and exciting era. A brand new lifestyle where you can live, cook, sleep and travel around the world in a box on wheels for the first time ever.
The first Westy's took countless travelers further and deeper down to many hidden corners of our magnificent planet. The spirit of freedom and adventure was unleashed out of the bottle and grabbed the helm of a brand new and exciting journey.
Today more people than ever embark on a journey of their life time and head out to explore the world in their camper van.
Others choose to live part or full time in their vehicles while traveling around and enjoy the simplicity of life. They're called the van dwellers.
For most of us, it's a multifunctional getaway vehicle that we strive to get in to and drive away whenever we can.
Roughly sixty years later, the Westy is a living legend and many other conversions followed a similar path by using other unique design features.If you know how to use your hands and wish to express you creative side, a home made camper might just be the perfect project for you.
Camper vans come in a variety of shapes and sizes, different interior layouts and sleep up to five people. Some are small enough to qualify as your daily driver, yet large enough to travel around the globe.
Good camping accessories are a must if you plan on spending some quality time out in the nature. In order to unplug from the grid and enjoy the remote corners of our planet, being self sustained is an important issue.
It`s all down to the basics of comfort here. Showers and toilets are sometimes only an option, but you'll learn to appreciate the simplicity of life as it is, with all the richness of experience that it provides.
If you're new to the camping world, this might be a good time to discover all the magic here. It's all about spending quality time out in the open, even when the bugs and the weather get a bit rough. Don't just yawn and complain about your life, get out and enjoy what it has to offer!
And whatever kind of transportation you choose to travel with, yes, do travel. Explore, dream, discover and be grateful for everything and everyone that crosses your path. They are a part of your experience as you are theirs!
