My personal first choice has always been to be back on the road. However, we had to find a way to make this ways of traveling sustainable. I think we found the perfect solution. An old Wanderlodge Bluebird RV bus that we probably will have converted to veggie oil. And we will pull our Westfalia!!

Why an old bus? Because it has character, it has a soul (which new rv’s don’t have). It is solid and not made of cardboard (like the trailer we had for our last roadtrip) and it contains much less chemicals than the newer rv’s (to which I react). Plus, it has lost already most of its value (versus buying a newer rv and having to sell it for half the price – or less – two years later).

The Westfalia will be the office/music room/guest room/I-need-some-alone-space spot. And it will be perfect to do side trips to campgrounds that are not accessible with a big vehicle or without a 4X4.
We are pretty excited to hit the road again, especially since we have no return date. We are simply taking our life on the road. We are heading to the Yukon (with side trips to Alaska) for the summer and then, we will slowly work our way south on the East Coast (we haven’t seen Oregon and California yet) and we are aiming to be in southern Utah/Moab at the end of October to enjoy some canyon hikes and mountain biking, then, we will probably go down in AZ, spend Christmas with our friends and maybe cross into Mexico or slowly work our way back up to BC for Spring. But our plans will obviously change and that’s perfect.
There will still be some poetic little daily reflections in this space but also a lot of writing about our adventures. If you would like to be kept up to date, like Catherine et les fées on Facebook and check Get notifications (in the Like drop down menu).
Our adventure starts on June 16th! Welcome aboard!
