We recently collaborated with Go Van to create a playlist that captures the essence of “THE HOWELLER,” our beloved British campervan that carried us, American Honeymooners, 40,000 miles all around the UK, up past the Arctic Circle in Norway, all the way down to the golden sands of The Sahara and beyond.
Over the course of 2.5 years, we visited numerous countries and spent countless hours driving with the windows down, hair blowing wild, perfecting our seated dance moves as The Howeller hummed along, blaring all our favorite songs. Other days, we’d be relaxing by the sea, grilling on the sand, enjoying some good ole American classics as we sat with The Howeller, the three of us, watching the sun go down, wondering if our friends and family back home could feel us thinking about them.
We accidentally broke off The Howeller’s antennae when we first got him, so we had to burn CD’s in order to have tunes. This happy, romantic, chill, “vibey” playlist is a collection of all our favorites that will forever be remembered as the soundtrack to one of the most unforgettable adventures of our lives. We hope you enjoy sharing in the journey, maybe it’ll even help inspire your own.

This is one of the last photos we took with The Howeller, gosh we loved that van! But beyond all the incredible places, the life-changing lessons and the freedom he gave us, I think what we are most grateful for are all the amazing people we were able to share our journey with, aka. YOU ❤️ This Instagram community overwhelms us with love, humor, inspiration and generosity beyond our wildest dreams! Yesterday we arrived back to California after what had already been 26 hours of travel from London (not to mention 2.5 years of living on the road in Europe + Africa), only to be greeted by hugs and smiles from a total stranger. Lindsay of @adventuroustravelers, had been following our travels via Instagram and when she saw that we were coming back to town, she offered to drive us all the way from LAX to San Diego, that’s 2.5 hours (one way)!! So we cancelled our rental car and made a new friend instead. An act of kindness that we will never forget. Thank you to all of you for sharing in the adventure, laughter and love, for sharing your travel tips, favorite camping spots, opening up your homes (cars and vans) and inviting us in for coffee, showers and home-cooked meals. This Instagram community is priceless and we are honored to share all the beauty that the future has in store, with you✨ #blessed ••• @quirkycampers @ourtyx @therollinghome @travelmanyroads @weareanae @pancakesamsterdam @whitedunekiting_dakhla @jo.chatterton @timthorntonallan @coastlinealgarve @peacelovebehippy @croatia_chasingthedonkey @sophie_yoga_annecy @parapente_annecy and so many more…
