bigshotphotos One of the best experiences of my life was when I bought a mint-condition Vintage, 1950 Bondwood caravan in this picture.

I came across an advert for a 1950 caravan in perfect condition in Melbourne’s Trading Post. I leaped upon it, and called at 8am, and got the lady to promise not to sell it to anybody else till I arrived. It belonged to a lovely old lady in her 70’s who had kept it garaged for 20 years since the death of her husband who had built it. He was a cabinetmaker, and built it in his spare time, and it was his pride and joy. Every nook and crevice in was beautifully detailed down to individually cut places for for every piece of crockery and cutlery. It had all the original 1950 fittings, plates, cups, crockery, curtains in mint condition. Like stepping into a time machine and being transported back to 1950. Lucky I made her promise as several other people called desperately to buy it, but I was first and bought it on the spot for only $1,000.

I left Melbourne and travelled Australia for a year, camping on the beach whenever possible. Everywhere I went people came up to chat about it. It bought back childhood memories of summer holidays for so many people.
I bought a lovely old 1950’s portable LP player, which seemed the only thing lacking when I bought the van. Along the way I stopped at every op shop and weekend market and amassed a great collection of 1950’s Jazz and pop legends. Nothing like having my little van parked at the beach, drinking a cold beer and listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone or Van Morrison and watching the sun go down.
Eventually I reached my destination, and settled down at the Broken Head caravan park in Byron Bay. I met a lovely couple who had a house in the hills and I moved in with them. I was featured in the Sydney Morning Herald when I tried auctioning it in Sydney. When I left Australia to go to live on an island in the Philippines for a year I sold it to them.
If you want to experience what van life is all about there is a stunning little vintage caravan located for rent in Byron Bay. See @lifeintheslowlane

amber_happycraftyfamily Best life goal and life dream organisation trick ever! I use a menu card box and fill each card with one goal or dream. The things I'm working on this year then go onto my big sheet of white cardboard that hangs in my room as a visible reminder of what I'm working on each day. Feels so great at the end of each year to go thru the box and see so many things done or experiences had or goals reached and im reminded of ones I'd forgotten about. It might be their turn next year! #dreams #goals #reachinggoals #goalsetter #lifeplanner #travelwithkids #traveladventures #travel #ilovetravel #explore #seetheworld #airplanes #letsgo #dreambig #newgoals #stepbystep #takeaction #actionisthekey #dailytasks #youcandoit #justdoit 2h
