    I’ve got a tip for you.. keep on living the dream guys ✌️

    Wow! Thanks for the tips! So, just a quick question. How is your approach with the legal part? You we’re saying that you have to search for the laws in every country. So if it’s legal to wild camp, then its cool, if its illegal you shit in that country’s law and camp anyway like you did in Portugal?

    The absolute best thing about this vanlife is the personal freedom to choose, wether that be a campsite, an Aire or to ‘Free Camp’ 👍 But you are spot on, whichever way you do it, do it ‘Responsibly’. Stay safe Amigos 😉
