Could You Live the #VanLife?

Embrace the “home is where you park” mantra.

The idea of living on the road -- via a camper, Airstream or large van -- isn’t exactly a new concept. (Ask Volkswagen Vanagon enthusiasts who have been living the mobile life for decades.) But thanks largely to Instagram and the tiny house movement, this idea of a little-to-no-strings-attached lifestyle on the road has picked up steam over the past few years, especially as younger generations consider downsizing to a more mobile, travel friendly way of life.

The #VanLife and #VanLifeDiaries hashtag trends on Instagram offer a glimpse into what life is like for these permanent travelers and adventure seekers, and, well, it’s a little more than lust-worthy. Here are a few of our favorite Instagram shots capturing the #VanLife and all the scenery that comes with it.
