  • Description

    We are Vendula and Marcel, travel enthusiasts, adventurers, sport and food lovers. We are New Zealand based travel bloggers and full time vanlifers.

    We have recently quit our long term jobs and decided to pursued our dream to experience vanlife so we converted a mobility van into a beautiful wooden cabin on wheels, travelling around New Zealand for last 5 months.

    We have started an instagram about a van build, vanlife, sustainable travel, fishing and surfing and when we are not chasing waves or a big fish, we are out there photo shooting some unique places and seeking adventure.

He is strongly tech savvy and loves working with his hands, wood work in particular. He is an experienced spear fisherman, freediver and scuba diver, he also owns a boat so he would be helpful with any boat maintenance. He can fix almost everything and he is also a talented photographer and aspiring short filmmaker.

    Vendy is from the Czech Republic but she feels more like a world citizen. She has lived in Scandinavia for over 4 years where she finished her masters in Business and Marketing.
