13 years ago when my husband and I got married, we rented a van and traveled the East coast of Australia for 5 weeks. It was one of the most memorable trips we had during our marriage and we often reminisce about it. It was simple living, every day we would wake up, drive to a new location, explore it, cook, eat, sleep and start it all over again next day. Some days we would stay in a location for a couple days and some days we kept driving. And because we were in a van, we got to stop by many beaches and just take a nap with the door open and the ocean as our view. There was so much freedom! We had an amazing time!
We realized back then that we didn’t need much to live well. When we bought our first house, we bought small and it was perfect for us. The second house we bought when we moved to Colorado was also not what we could afford, but what we thought was enough for us. Both of us are really unattached to things, we can live anywhere, with just about the basics if needed and that is one of the things I love most about traveling in our RV. We are reminded that all we really need fits into a 22ft trailer. And we spend quality time together and outdoors, which is what we like most about getting away.
This weekend, there is an event I am looking forward to attending: The Colorado Tiny House Festival.
Ever since I started seeing the tiny house movement spread out, I’ve started dreaming about a tiny house in the mountains. I haven’t quite convinced the hubby yet, but baby steps right? Maybe by attending the Colorado Tiny House Festival I will be a tiny step closer to it.
I love that the designs are getting better and more modern as the movement spreads, so I am looking forward to seeing what the builders are coming up with.
