On January 1st 2016 we - Petra Smit and Patrick Haverkate, a lovely Dutch couple from Amsterdam - took a bold step! We bought a recreational vehicle better known as RV! In our case it was an old
1983 Mercedes 207D campervan and we named her Penelope. Then we said goodbye to our rental house and moved into our motorhome fulltime: living and working as digital nomads. Pat as
a copywriter/webdesigner and Petra as a photographer and graphic designer. Since the beginning we have documented this adventure on video in the format of regular vlogs shared
freely on the YouTube platform. In our own country we made history too! Being the first vlogging vanlifers of The Netherlands! Woohoo!
