1. Quit your job
2. Build a campervan
3. Travel

Mike’s story is one that starts with a lot of dreaming – like many people around the globe, he wanted to live in a van and travel the world. But unlike many people around the globe, he didn’t let his dream die. Mike quit his job, moved out his house in Sheffield, UK, gave away the furniture and bought a big old van.

“The first few days I was overwhelmed with things I needed to do. The van was a mess. It got worse the more time I spent with it; more rust, holes in floor, oil leaks, bodge after bodge. It was a write-off and it even had forklift truck marks underneath where it had probably been shifted about some scrap yard”, he tells the story.

Job well done, in March 2014 the van was ready and the journey began.

Two years later Mike is in Morocco, travelling slowly.

“I travel by van because it lets me live a simple happy life of freedom, adventure and experience variety every day”, he says.

If you wonder how it happened, here is Mike: “Turning a dream into reality is a human thing that we are all wired to do. Quitting my job to travel was a decision that now I see as the best decision of my life.”
