Every day, people get up, grab their backpack and go out to travel the world. Not only do they survive, they thrive. Travelling means visiting the places you’ve only seen in magazines and creating lasting friendships with other open-minded, interesting travellers. But it’s about more than that. Travelling is also about self-discovery, learning how to adapt to new surroundings quickly, being more flexible, more social and understanding non-verbal communication. Travelling forces you to be more independent, more open and a much better person.
Living in a van for weeks, months, or even more will bring a fair amount of challenges, but as the Go-Van team knows, travelling on the road also brings an immense sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. Simple daily tasks like meal preparation and working remotely demand extra effort, but the result is something extraordinary. Go-Van wanted to document the simple happiness that 5,000 miles on the open road brings. They left Montreal in the dead of winter with a camera, a drone and some essential gear, heading south with one goal in mind – to explore as much as possible on route to the ocean.
