Pack down and hitch up, it's time for the freedom of the road with Vantastic, your guide to life with a van or RV! Seasoned traveler Kate Ulman, of the popular blog and Instagram accounts Foxslane, provides practical tips and advice as well as comprehensive information on turning your dream of a #vanlife road trip into reality.
Start by learning to speak van, as Kate helps you to choose the perfect van or RV, as well as ways to retrofit a second-hand van to suit your purposes. Then dive into planning your itinerary, checklists, cute ways to 'dress' your van, and how to pack and hitch up. And then, when you're ready to go, take note of essential #vanlife know-how including budgeting and sustainable travel advice, and handy apps. This guide also covers van-friendly recipes (including many vegan dishes), craft projects, fun family activities and mindfulness on the road, tips and tricks, and roadside tales. Featuring Kate's own beautiful photography throughout, Vantastic will inspire and guide you through every stop on your journey.
Kate Ulman and her husband and three daughters live on an organic farm on Dja Dja Wurrung Country near Daylesford, Victoria, at the bottom of mainland Australia. She is crazy about crafts, loves to repurpose old things and enjoys growing, selling and cooking delicious organic produce. Kate's popular blog and Instagram account, Foxs Lane, allow her to share her various passions. When Kate and her family set out on a six-month caravanning adventure, they bought an old caravan and breathed new life into it with vintage finds and hand-crafted accessories. Vantastic, Kate's first book, tells the story of that adventure, and now she embraces the #vanlife craze in this revised edition.
