Minimize

Since some months now I’m thinking about my families life and our living situation. My family and I are living in a 2 bedroom unit, with a big living room, a big kitchen and 2 bathroom. This is a standard unit for a family like mine, but as the internet is full of either postings about more and more material and big homes, there are also those posts about minimalism, about van life and the freedom of owning less but living more.

This thought comes and goes and falls with my financial possibilities right now, but I really love the imagination about down-sizing, at least for some weekend or holiday. So what exactly? I love all those pictures and blog posts about the #VanLife and especially families with kids and their life and adventure on the road.

Why does this come to my mind? Well I love to travel, and I know my family does too. Sure we like to travel by plane, but this one is expensive and I think driving around let you see so much beautiful that you might lose on the way.
Last summer we just visited The Netherlands by car and really enjoyed it! I love the flexibility and the freedom you experience while going by car – if the car is driving. My car is old and it is an adventure to use it and see if you reach your destination. I’m thinking about how to reach my new goal on this personal wish to buy a van (converted or not) to use it as a great way to travel with the whole family and not missing anything from home.
I also checked on those cute little tiny homes, well these are also on my wish list. Guess I need to find the needed financial credits to purchase both or at least one of them on my wish list.
