We have some exciting news.. we are going to embark on a big adventure.
If you have been following us on our Instagram you will be well aware that we have been converting a Ford Transit into a home on wheels.
It has been a year long project for us and it's just about finished. Along the way we have been watching countless youtube videos on how to fit a roof light, installing a solar panel and countless other tasks we didn't have the first clue on where to start.
Along this journey we got thinking...much like our previous vehicles we were going to use the van for exploring on the weekend and summer holidays, but from watching so many inspiring van life videos we have decided to hit the road full time and go travelling.
The Hendersons shop has always been a journey, and one were so pleased we started back in 2014, In 2017 when we closed our store in Rochester high street, we did so with the intention of growing our online store to enable us to go travelling and not be held back with the responsibility of having to open the shop most days. Fast forward a year and a half and the shop is going from strength to strength, we're growing our following and doing so has enabled us to both give up our day jobs and work on the shop full time. Now we can realise our dream of being able to travel full time whilst managing the business.
We will be leaving for Europe in the first week of December and heading north to Scandinavia for winter, followed by the long journey to Southern Europe for the summer. We will be instagramming, blogging and filming along the way and we cannot wait so show you what we get up to and where we visit, hopefully bringing you some vintage treasures along the way.
At the beginning of December 2018 we're off, 23 countries in 365 days.
We are hoping to visit -
France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Croatia, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and Italy.
We will be living in and out of our van. Sleeping, eating, cooking, washing, working and chilling out all in our home on wheels. As we have built our van all with our own fair hands we have tried to personalise our van as much as possible, whilst also making sure it will be comfortable and that it work for us but most importantly feel like our home.
We hope you follow along with our journey and we are super excited to show you guys everything we get up to and experience ✌🏻.
