On January 1st 2016 we - Petra Smit and Patrick Haverkate, a lovely Dutch couple from Amsterdam - took a bold step: we bought an old Mercedes 207D campervan, said goodbye to our rental house and moved into our 1983 campervan called Penelope fulltime: ready to live and work as digital nomads (copywriting, photography, webdesign and graphic design). And since the beginning we have documented it all on video in the format of regular vlogs shared freely on the YouTube platform. In our own country we made history too! As the first Dutch vlogging vanlifers of The Netherlands! So be inspired!
We are recording weekly vanlife vlogs as we are driving our campervan towards Portugal. Since we are our countries first fulltime vanlife vloggers we are literally making and creating Dutch Vanlife History on a daily basis! And the awesome thing is that you can become a significant part of it. How? Simply by making a one-time donation. We are giving out three producer titles to reward your awesomeness:
