Van Life Austin Texas

On our 10th month of full time travel we said goodbye to Tallahassee where we had been staying for a few months at an RV park due to working in the area. We bought a cargo van and finished the self-conversion, prepared for Vanlife and re-located the travel trailer to Ocala, Florida. We completed the van-build and were super excited to start Vanlife and take a few months off work to just travel. We made our way along the Florida Panhandle to Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana into Texas where we spent a little more than a week in Austin.

We love Austin for its fun vibes, the many outdoors and water activities, music and nightlife, yoga studios, farmers markets and many vegetarian and vegan restaurants.

Vanlife Austin

Since sleeping in your vehicle is illegal in the City of Austin, we won’t be recommending any overnight parking spots. That being said, stealth camping is practiced and street parking is available throughout the city. Multiple campgrounds and State Parks are available outside of the city and free camping can be found nearby via ioverlander.com, freecampsites.net, campendium.com and other apps.

Showers can be found at the municipal pool and at one of the many Planet Fitness gyms (membership required).

How We Work And Travel Fulltime

This is how we work from the road while living in our travel trailer and our self-converted van and travel full time. We love RV-Living and Vanlife and the opportunity it provides for us to travel freely while working. Damian is a remote worker and owner of an SEO and Web Company: remoteseo.us and damianschmidt.com and can work from pretty much anywhere as long as there is a cellphone signal or wifi available. Eliane is currently working as a travel nurse at different hospitals where she usually works 13 week contracts and then takes time off some time to travel between assignments.

Tallahassee St Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

The St Marks Historic Railroad State Trail that runs from Tallahassee to St. Marks is one of our favorite bike trails in the area! We love the beautiful setting and scenery and the tranquil ride it provides. St. Marks makes for a fun destination for a picnic at the water before riding back on the 20.5 miles long trail. And it’s a great workout for sure!

Remote and Nomad Living – Ocala – Gainesville – Tallahassee

During our sixth month of nomad life we enjoyed a few great getaways and days of exploration. We traveled from Tallahassee to the quiet Alligator Beach, swam in the beautiful and cold Juniper Spring in Ocala National Forest, rode our bikes on some great trails in Gainesville and Tallahassee and for the first time had guests over for a vegetarian chili and grill party.

We also continued to work remotely and on-site and tried to improve our remote work-life balance. We love this nomad life and are looking forward to all our upcoming adventures.
