You don’t need to live in a van to enjoy an active lifestyle: take a mini vacation! Lately, there have been more and more reports of people selling their belongings and moving into a van to travel around the world in their new tiny, mobile homes. As intriguing as it sounds, you don’t need to uproot your entire life to experience the nomadic lifestyle for yourself.

Instead of traveling the world for months on end, how about packing up your family or friends into your car and exploring all the exciting adventures available near you? Even a short time spent in nature can help you relax and breathe easier. 

Mini vacation with a minimal carbon footprint

Weekend trips or summer holidays can give you a much-needed break from the daily grind. When you hop in your car, you can make your own schedule and decide your own route. Drive for a day or for a few hours, it’s up to you. You don’t have to run to catch a flight; just sit in your car and go where the day takes you, be it berry pickingchilling at a lakeside resort or exploring old castles and ruins. Is there perhaps a national park within a driving distance? A city park you haven’t explored yet? Spending time in nature is a great way to de-stress and feed your creativity.  

Quality time with the family 

In addition, when you travel locally, you get to spend quality time with your loved ones, watching the changing scenery from the privacy and comfort of your own car. Packing a picnic lunch and going for a short hike in nature is the quintessential definition of an adventure for a child. Just imagine, sitting by the fire, roasting sausages or marshmallows, listening to the soothing sounds of the sea or the wind whispering in the woods. These are the kinds of memories your child will grow to cherishDay trips won’t even break your bank, as you can just drive home in the evening and sleep in your own bed.  

Raise your tire pressure, not your blood pressure 

Traveling in the car can be fun and safe year-roundas long as you have the appropriate set of tires in your car. Just remember that when you’ve packed your car full of loved ones and luggage, you need to make sure your tires are up to the task. The heavier the load, the more pressure you need to carry it safelySo, once you’ve got everything and everyone inside the car, remember to swing by the service station and check your tire pressure and put some more air in your tires before you head out to explore the great unknown!
