SLOW ‘N STEADY LIVIN

Two Souls ~ One Van

Hello! We are two creative souls who both have a passion for adventure.

Steph is best described as a cosmic craftswoman, her creative passions lie within illustration and photography. Matt is a salty seadog who spends the majority of his time in the ocean catching waves or teaching people how to catch them, he is also a professional Photographer. Together we enjoy living a slow life, exploring nature and adventuring in our home on wheels - Ivy.

How we started..

Our first van we owned was in Australia, we had to cook outside rain or shine, you couldn’t stand up inside and we shared a single bed for a whole year while touring the coast. This tiny little home we created started our love affair with van dwelling and life on the road, it gave us a crash course in alternative living and the kind of freedom that tasted bloody beautiful!

Ivy

Our home on wheels and the reason that we are able to live the way we do, Ivy takes us everywhere from Uk to south west Sahara (albeit with a few complaints along the way) and keeps us sheltered from the elements whether it be wild storms and torrential downpours in North west Spain to the sand storms and harsh sun of the Sahara. She has been a truly amazing adventure companion.
