Phil just spent some time with our van on its own. He had almost 2 weeks to work on more of the furniture and the essentials we’ll need for getting out on the road.
Phil finished the back doors.
We worked for 21 grueling days on our Van. Now “The Van Kongs Build Part 1” is over. We started our conversion with really bad weather conditions, but we survived, and now it looks as if we could move in, but there’s still a lot to do!
Happy New Year 2018! Our new year started happy.. and expensive!
On January 3rd, we finally bought our new home – a blue Mercedes Sprinter 2500. That was the day before the big snowstorm hit the east coast and many other parts of the US. Kristin already had a snowstorm after Christmas three years ago and that time she thought to herself, ‘wow, I’ve never seen so much snow before’. But this time it was much more and the temperature was so much colder. Great time to start a van conversion 🙂

A 12k hike was waiting for us, starting at Stara Fužina, a small town near Lake Bohinj. If you want to get there, pay a lot attention to the signs that will direct you through the town and to the left (Vogar) where you’ll find a large gravel parking lot. In high season you have to pay parking (and entrance to the park). Read More
Ljubljana! Slovenia’s capital city! And what a city it is! After spending a lot of time in small towns throughout southwestern Slovenia, we decided to head to Ljubljana to see some of the architecture, and get a sense for what city-life is Slovenia. To our surprise, we both immediately fell in love with this charming little city.
