Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination
Hi, I'm Shane ✌️
I started The Van Conversion with one goal in mind:
To help more people live full-time on the road. 🏞️
A few years ago I left a 9-5 office job, moved into my self-build, and started wandering through Europe full-time.
Along the way, I built a few businesses, met a lot of amazing people, and did a bunch of adventuring.
I've been perched with my van in Chamonix, France since the beginning of 2022 where I pursue the mountains with an ardent fervor; alpine climbing, ski-touring, and mountain running. ⛰️
My van 'beans' truly has facilitated my best life.
Now, I want to help you get on the road -
so you can live your best life too! 🚐
Climbing out of a crevasse - Chamonix, France
Driving through the arctic circle - Lofoten, Norway
I've been teaching people how to build campervans for several years; its my passion (and maybe my dharma🧘)
The Van Conversion Course has quickly become the most popular campervan course on the internet!
I'm a big proponent of conscious lifestyle design.
Life truly is what you make it.
We can't just sit back waiting for our dream lives to happen - we have to make it happen!
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
So go take that first step.
