Our latest ramblings:
WHAT IS A GALLIVANTING LIFE?
A Gallivanting Life started as a way for us to document and share our passion for adventure and travel, all whilst living out of our vintage VW van. Our arrangements, much like travel in general have changed slightly, but our main philosophy and ideals remain! Our main goal is to explore as much of the world as possible and at the same time as cost effectively and eco-conscious as possible. We hope you enjoy our eco-adventure and van life blog!
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover."
― Mark Twain
WHO WE ARE
“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry.” ― Jack Kerouac
FLOYD R. PAUL / CREATIVE DESIGNER
Active, adventure seeking, creative and spontaneous, these are qualities that best describe Flo. A passion for the ocean and the great outdoors, seeking adventure anywhere on this planet.
WILLOW WILDER / NATURE LOVER
What I do for fun? I'm not really one to talk. But I enjoy watching the branches sway on a summers day, feeling the grass between my fingers, my mothers milk and the wind in my face makes me smile. I'm looking forward to a life time of adventures and seeing how far these two crazy cats can take me! World meet Willow!
OTTILA SÖDERSTRÖM / WANDERING SOUL
Give her green rolling hills, high mountains and long winding switchbacks through dense natural forest and she will have a smile as big as Africa. A lover, thinker, and eco-warrior, O is always in the here and now. Absorbing every detail and turning the most mundane into the ultimate adventure.
SKY / 1990 - VW T3
Sky was born for the open road. Long stretches of African tarmac, wild bumpy farm tracks and the occasional off-road adventure he lives for the wild outdoors!
PURPLE TURTLE or THUNDER TRUCK? / 1977 - VW LT31
Bigger, older, and oft forgotten the LT31 is the T3's long lost european cousin. With her scandic background shes speant many a winter exposed to the raw, relentless cold. But now has a new lease on life and is looking forward to experience what the rest of Europe has to offer.
