Having recently celebrated two years of life on the road its time to sum up the journey so far.
The short version: I wish I had launched this adventure at least 10 years ago.
The long version: It would have been a lot harder to do back then considering the need to work and the available technologies of a decade ago. It would also have been a lot more expensive to get started.
But let’s not dwell on that. Here’s why it is working for me now, and for many hundreds of other full-time travellers across Australia.
Let’s perversely start with some of the negatives.

The vehicle I live in, a 1985 Toyota Coaster bus, converted in Japan into a mobile bordello (Too true and a story for another time) has a second floor — the ‘penthouse’ — which adds another dimension when its popup roof is extended.
After its raucous beginnings it was exported to Australia as a motorhome, but spent most of its time in a paddock as temporary accommodation for visitors.
