It takes a lot of courage to leave your old life behind and explore a world in a converted van, and Brandon and Sarah made it happen. The founders of the travel blog Living in Advance are living their best life with their three dogs, and their adventures will inspire you to give van life a shot.
Brandon and Sarah Arant are a young couple from Colorado and they’ve been pretty adventurous even before deciding to buy a van and convert it into their tiny home. Sarah fell in love with backpacking and hiking at a young age thanks to her dad, while Brandon became an experienced backpacker during his trip through Southeast Asia.
Their life turned upside down in the fall of 2019 when they decided to buy a van and start living on the road with their three pups Kissy, Koi, and Ziggy.
“We had a dream but we didn’t think it would come so soon. We didn’t even know that it was going to happen to be honest. After months of research, months of searching, we finally did it, we bought our first home… who knew it would be a van,” the duo explained on their official website.
Brandon and Sarah are here to give you all the tips and tricks you’ll need to embark on your own van life adventure while keeping it real about all the downsides of this lifestyle – from struggling with money and homesickness to making the best of limited space and resources.
