is there a van waiting for you too?

an important part of achieving our dreams is to visualize them. to feel them as true and already here.

in my goal to a simple life, and also a vanlife, i’ll start to write here about my dreams, my aspirations, my intentions. it will be easier for me to track what’s going on in my life, and if it’s going on the direction i wish it to be.

so let’s start with the vanlife.

~~~

i imagine having a medium black suitcase, with a few of our possessions. mostly clothes, and other indispensable items.

our van isn't very big, nor brand-new. it exhales history and has traveled to many beautiful places before having our butts in it.

we've decorated it with beautiful colors on the outside, as a statement of who we are as a family. they are vibrant and makes us think of the universe's magic.

inside, we have paper planes, smiley pictures and a big map with pins telling the places we've went. there's a cabinet with a couple of books, a notebook filled with stories and drawings, and a very special pen.

we wash our clothes by hand, and let it dry by the sun and the wind. we pick our bikes to discover the cities, the towns, the people. we have a few vases where we plant some lettuce, tomatoes, and aromatic plants. and we make delicious food in our little fire pan. we rest on hammocks by the shadow of trees. and put fallen flowers on our ears.

we park by the beaches, and sing and dance on the sand by the sunset. we park by the mountains and watch the sunrise while eating eggs. we park in camping sites to experience the comfort of warm water and to share experiences with fellow travelers.

we are wanderers without destination. and we hold hands like newly couples. our son runs back and forward in front of us, trying to find new adventures. we hug, our special "three-hug". and we give unexpected kisses in unexpected places.

to earn some money, my husband helps the fishermen by mending their nets. or sells ice-cream to tourists. i create things with my hands like necklaces made of sea, and craft poems to anyone who wants to hear them. while i devote my time to watch my son grow, and my blog along with him.

i write the amazing stories i experienced, and share every lesson that blessed me. i design what comes to my heart and be the artist my soul craves me to be.

our son is wild and free and explores what's around him. climbing trees, smelling flowers, asking questions.

we help and give back and forward, where we are needed. we gather in bonfires, with guitars, ukuleles, and djambes.

and before we go to sleep, we look at the stars and tell the fables we were once told. me and my husband then embrace our love, that falls asleep with a smile. and we give our good nights sealed with a kiss. dreaming with gratitude on our hearts.
