About us:

After meeting in New Zealand back in 2017, Beth and Jake have travelled the world, working online and creating memories.
Beth left the UK in 2014 and has been travelling full time ever since, she is the owner of and has a passion for writing and photography.

Jake has been travelling since 2016 and during this time has perfected his photography and videography skills. He is adventurous and has a passion for the outdoors.

Having lived in various countries around the world, we decided that instead of settling down, we’d  build a tiny home inside a van.
We’ve never done anything like this before, we have no building experience, no electrical experience, and no plumbing experience.
This is a huge learning curve for us and we welcome you to join us in this challenge.

Our Wild Horizons documents a journey of continued adventure.

    Silicone spatula – not just for cooking but to scrape oans, plates and bowls clean before washing up which helps save water

    Love the video! It’s good to see ones that aren’t the same as everyone else’s !

    love all this advice thank you! really like the picnic blanket thanks we love your channel!

  10. KO studio on October 27, 2022 at 7:54 am

    Me and my bf have found that we also just use a wok and a sauce pan for everything. Definitely don’t need 20 different pans for cooking.

    Great video! I really need to get myself a litter picker 👍🏼

  12. Bobbie Johnson on October 27, 2022 at 7:58 am

    100% agree on the bungee cords! They’re so underrated 😅 I did use them to tie up my kitchen draws so they wouldn’t fly open as I was driving but now I have upgraded with turn buttons. A hot water bottle would be my next essential item. Especially now its got colder 🥶

    Great choices* I especially love the litter picker ethos* You make a really lovely couple 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to share* Sending best & well wishes from Scotland*

    Love the straining saucepan, great design! Pegs! Pegs are always handy for fastening food bags, hanging washing and stopping spoons falling into saucepans 😆
