Author: Naomi Dunbar & Helen Taylor

If you’re anything like us, then you glaze over at your desk in the office (more times a day than you’d like to admit to your boss) and dream of packing your things into a cute little van and pursuing an exciting life on the open road. It looks the perfect way to escape from the shackles of the monotonous 9-5, explore the wonders of this world that Mother Nature has so kindly left for us, and to truly experience the sweet taste of adventure.
