I met Finn in Hungary whilst helping to build the SUN festival (my first summer on the road) and now he’s a good friend....

A little shout out to Grant! Those of you who will be lucky enough to meet him on his world travels are in for a treat. Not everyone could show the kind of openness that he has shown towards embracing the adventure, and not everyone could sleep 3 adults in a queen size bed in the back of an old Kombi for a thousand miles. I wasn't sure who the next owner of the Kombi would be, but when I met him, I knew that Grant was the right person! Take care of CoPito and good luck on your travels mate, we're stoked that we could play such a big part in it! Ben, Leah, Alaska P.S: Follow Grant and CoPito here: https://www.instagram.com/foreverchasingthesun_com/
They say moving house is one of the most stressful times of your life. We do it often. In the past year we've doubled the number of miles on our odometer, and flown around the world and back. We wintered in Baja and produced season 4 of Hasta Alaska and now we're ready to start with "Season 5 - The Road to The Arctic!" - Its going to be awesome! Scandals and Drama like we couldn't have written, but that's the beauty of a Real Life Series. The filming is now complete, now we are ready for post production! We're constantly moving house at the moment, complying with visa regulations so that we can be true digital nomads and bring you the best travel content on YouTube. Currently we're producing from a tent trailer in Canada, soon we will have to relocate to Europe to finish the rest of the Hasta Alaska Travel Series. Our series is produced for you and by YOU, so if you would like to help us produce Season 5 then please join us on Patreon via this link: https://www.patreon.com/kombilife *hint - Patron get behind the scenes bonus content and exclusive previews from the next series!
We walked a very long way on a hot summer day with all our camera gear to meet up with Julian and chat about van life in Vancouver, and it was totally worth it!! His van is almost identical to ours except that his has a pop top and we were curious to see what it would be like to stand up in "our" van. Conclusion: it's pretty great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJVQsPxV_Zo
The longer we faced daily bustle of Hanoi and its crowded streets with motorbikes, the more we dreamt of nothing but a green patch...
