“The VW Bus Rolls Into the Sunset”

Volkwagen vans hold a special place in my heart; it was our family vehicle for many years, and when I made my big move to Venice, California they appeared everywhere.  Whether a Westfalia, Kombi, or a Samba, these adventure wagons have a characteristic unique beauty that I am constantly inspired to capture.  So when news came that in December of this year, the company will shut down it’s last factory, I felt the end of an era.  Next Avenue felt the same sadness, and reached out to feature some of my favorite Volkslivin images in their blog commemorating this characteristic car.  You can read the article here.

Follow the van on Volkslivin’ and on Facebook.

Last VW ‘Hippie Van’ to Be Built This Year

Looks like December 31st of this year will be the beginning of the end for VW buses..  Sad to see production stop creating this iconic vehicle.  Who knew that Brazil was the last place assembling Volkswagens? 

Here are some memorable Volkswagen’s from my trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as a homage to this adventurewagen.

While traveling to Big Sur for a Father’s Day getaway, we stopped at GoWesty, one of the best VW restorers in the world.

I’ve been itching to visit and it seemed like the ideal place to fulfill my Volkslivin’ wanderlust.  It was here we met Tim O’Shea, who is traveling along the West Coast in his VW bus painting landscapes.  Learn more about the project on his Kickstarter, and keep on Volkslivin’!

If it wasn’t obvious already, I’ll share this secret with you—I’m obsessed with finding the perfect Camper Van for my family and I to travel along the California coast and beyond.

 

The Volkslivin’ project began over 4 years ago, and now it has blossomed into its own community.  People around the world have shared stories with me of what this special auto means to them and how my photos ignited a feeling deep within them.  Vanlife is a lifestyle and a culture of its own.  Now, whenever I see a VW rumbling down the highway or parked overlooking the Pacific ocean, I can’t help but smile.  It just feels good to see them.


This past Father’s day weekend, my family indulged me and we traveled to GoWesty, one of the premiere VW restorers in the world.  I’ve been itching to visit and it seemed like the ideal place to fulfill my wanderlust.  There, we met owner Lucas Valdes, who could potentially hold the keys to make my dream a reality.  I want to send a sincere thank you to Lucas for personally showing my wife and I his massive collection of beautiful vanagons, eurvans, and campers. I highly recommend checking out the restored vans at GoWesty for anyone interested in purchasing a van—it’s on my wishlist!
