I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but living in your automobile is no longer exclusive to the perennially unemployed. Everyone and their dog is in on the van life movement. It’s hip, hot, happening, and never has the question, “you wanna have a look inside my van?” been such a socially acceptable proposition.
In truth, the van life trend is but one tiny offshoot of the much broader minimalist movement. People are shifting away from the fleeting pleasures of materialism, embracing simpler lifestyles, and prioritizing life-enriching experiences over monetary wealth. That’s all pretty freaking awesome if you ask me.
