Van Life Austin Texas

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 relocated 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.
