We are a Belgian couple, both 26, named Jolien en Karel. She is a starter architect and he is an electrical engineer. Instead of buying a house and settle down our lives like almost all of our friends around us we decided to buy a mercedes-benz vito and transform it to our first home.

The big plan is to leave Belgium soon to give the travel life on the road a try.

We bought our van in December and now it’s almost finished. We worked on it for almost 200 man-hours, from design to an almost finished van.
