Top 5 decisions that turned our campervan into a home

We’re overall quite happy with our finished campervan conversion project, but these 5 decisions still make us smile every day. After sharing our 4 missed opportunities last week,  we’d like to share the 5 best decisions we made during our campervan build this week.   1. Magnetic curtains Whilst converting our van, we’ve seen so many different curtain designs. Everyone seems to approach it differently. Well, to make it easier for you to choose one, here’s another option! One that we had’t seen before; magnetic curtains. We, well actually Jordy’s mom, sewed magnets in each of the corners of each…

5 places you must visit on the island Fur

The hidden treasure of Denmark, as the Danish call it. If you are looking for places to visit in Denmark, the island of Fur should definitely be at the top of your list! Do not dismiss the island of Fur for its size! When we were planning our vanlife trip through Europe, we were curious to find out what to do in Denmark.

Before we set off, we stuffed the fridge with some leftover fruit, vegetables, and other lovely food that Jordy’s parents gave us. A few days ago however, I was craving something tasty to drink - a switch from water really. We also needed some extra items for lunch and dinner the next day. So, I went to a grocery…

Campervan conversion: how to build a sofa bed

A comfortable bed makes a house a home. Or should we say makes a campervan a home? In our campervan conversion, building the bed was the most important part. Everything else we built and included in our RV was built around our comfortable nest. A good night’s sleep is the most precious thing, and since we will be living in our campervan full time, there was no way in which we’d compromise on that!       Designing the layout  Before we bought our van, we had some ideas of the layout and knew which items we’d like to include…
