Our Vintage Bohemian Camper // Chevy El Dorado Glamping // Los Angeles, CA

We cannot wait to share the following images with all of you. This, our beloved little yellow RV. This is where we spent our free time this spring & summer. So much laughter, sweat, tears, excitement went into renovating this little BoHo oasis on wheels. We renovated this little space upon four wheels in the back alley behind our apartment, powered by an extension cord dropped out of our window. By the end of our project, all of our neighbors were involved & always so excited to see the new progress. When we started, we didn’t know we would end up ripping everything out to the bare bones & starting anew. As most renovation projects go, we wondered if it was worth it more than once. But now, with everything complete, it is our little sanctuary. In the midst of our crazy schedule of running a business, this is our hideaway. A place to take a deep breath, gather our thoughts, travel the coast, find inspiration. It is a place for us to be together.
 
The second reason we can’t wait to share this with you is because we are excited to say that we want to extend this space to you. To fellow travelers, artists, & adventurers. To those in need of an escape from their busy schedule, to breathe deeply, & enjoy the coast. (find our Airbnb listing here!) . (Since we are currently traveling around Southeast Asia for the month of December, we will be updating the rental dates for our RV first thing in 2016.)
 
We have always dreamed of hosting travelers through Airbnb, but, until now, haven’t ever had the right space to do so. We love that with Airbnb, as they say, you can belong anywhere in the world. We have experienced this so many times throughout our travels. From an air mattress in an entryway in Nob Hill to a beautiful little apartment in the heart of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico, and as we speak, an 11th floor flat overlooking the city of Bangkok, we have been welcomed, treated like close friends, & been given a place to call home during our travels. Such an incredible way to create & experience community during travels.

we drove & drove until the path ended,
& stepped out onto the untouched mountain snow.
in the midst of complete quiet. complete peace.
chilly toes. multitudes of pines.
deep breathes.
letting that cold air burn our lungs.
 
discovering a porch swing at the very top.
like it was set there just for us to find.
peering out over the planet.
feeling huge. feeling small.
what a beautiful, beautiful world we live in.
 
& then in the valley, twirling & dancing upon this frozen lake
feeling like we are on the moon
if you were the only other human in the world,
i would be ok with that.

My hand in yours, tiptoe to the edge.
Hushed laughter swirling around in the air with the sound of crashing waves below.
One of my favorite memories of all time, one of my favorite memories next to you.
The thick, fresh fog kissing our faces, surrounding our bodies.
Navigating through till we reached the water’s edge.
Salty breeze, the crash crash crash of the waves against the rocks below.
Maine stole our hearts from the moment we stepped on her soil.
We will never listen to Cicadas and Gulls by Feist without being flooded with these memories.
