Thanks to fellow YouTubers and bloggers: Exploring Alternatives, for featuring Happy Camper Wives on their amazing YouTube channel. They asked us to do an interview, sharing our adventures selling everything to live in a teardrop camper. They also feature a more extensive tour of our T@b camper. We still even got to sneak in some dancing to embrace our dorky side.
Exploring Alternatives is an inspiring van life couple who are living alternative lifestyle. They share great tips on how to live on the road, how to budget for trips, as well as share stories of other people living in creative ways. Some people live in boats, yurts, renovated retro campers, tiny houses and more. They recently featured a woman that’s been living off grid for 11 years! One of our favorite videos to date.
Alternatives are out there- you’re not stuck
There are so many ways in which to live in this world. You don’t have to be “stuck” in the 9-5 office world if it makes you miserable. We all have choices and if we’re not happy, there are things we can do to change our lifestyle. Change means looking into what’s making us unhappy and changing it in creative ways. We talk about how living tiny has created more happiness in our life and we’re not bullshitting you- we truly are happier than we’ve ever been.
And to be honest, selling everything and leaving or old life behind was a really tough choice, especially for Jessi. We had grown attached to the things that we worked so hard to obtain. Letting go is not always a good choice, but again sometimes it’s ok to take a leap of faith to change it. Check out Exploring Alternatives for some great ideas on the alternative lifestyle and how people are making it happen!
