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!
