Worldwide travel destinations are something most of us only dream about. But every now and then some van campers push things just a bit further and head out to discover the world. Explore, dream and discover is the only thing that exists in the mind. And their backyard is not exactly the place they want to stay at for the rest of their life.
It happens to me all the time. The place I live, well it's just fine and all that, but every now and then I crave for a change of scenery.
I'm perfectly happy with myself once I hit the road. I traveled around Europe and it is a great place to travel, but sometimes I need a new experience in my life. Something different, with more colors and a new taste and aroma.
My wife and I chose to travel to Morocco in our camper van. Something
new and fresh for a change. A change of scenery we both needed. You can read our story in two parts, just to avoid one web page being to long. So it's Morocco 1 and Morocco 2 for you to read and enjoy. And it's so close to Europe, that not traveling there would be pure insanity.
But that's just one of the possible worldwide travel destinations. And a camper van does have freedom and adventure written all over it.
One way you can do it is a camper van rental. Most of the top destinations offer camper van rentals/hire for every taste. With a camper van you get to travel at your own pace, go places that you want and stay where you want. All at the comfort of your home on wheels.
Another way of seeing one of your favorite worldwide travel destinations is buying a camper van at your destination. You can try to find a dealer that will buy the camper van back from you at the point of your destination or sell it by yourself.
If you really wish to see the world on your own and in your own camper van conversion you have many ways of doing so. Money of course is always the main issue here.
Amanda and Rich Ligato quit their jobs, left their home, packed everything in a 1978 Volkwagen camper and set out to discover the world. On your left is the book about their road trip of a lifetime and how they did it.
Getting of the grid and taking the helm of your life in your hands is not always easy. It takes a lot of organizing, preparation and a stable state-of-mind. And you have to do it all by yourself.

Once you firmly set your goals, nothing can stop you from reaching your favorite worldwide travel destinations.
Kind of like Steve and Wendi Robbins on their Worldwide Odyssey with their trusty old 1972 Westy. The plan is that... well there is no plan or at least it's a four letter word they like to avoid.
But why on earth do some of us need to push things just a little further?
Perhaps this quote nails it down to the bottom...
It's all about the experience. That's why we live. We are not here to
sit in our favorite chair just to watch dumb TV shows and play
video games on our computers. We are here to experience the many different aspects of life. No wright no wrong, just the experience.
Lots of art and passion inspired Emily & Adam on deciding to take their young child all the way down to south America in their Westfalia Vanagon. That's absolutely my way of raising a child and living your life as an adventure.
For another pure inspiration take a minute of your time to watch this video from Geraldine and Yann, a french couple that took their 1969 Citroen HY camper van conversion around the world. The scenery is breathtaking...
Some people continuously travel and explore different worldwide travel destinations for many years in a row, others come home, but only until their next camper world adventure. They have no need to stay in one place. The world is there home and the people of the world are their friends.
