Living On The Road

What it is like to live on the road full time.

Larissa Hill

Tiny homes are not the only alternative way to live in 2020. There are people across the United States who are tired of working 9-5 corporate jobs and they are choosing to live and travel full time in a van. Living in a van allows people to move a round, they are not forced to stay in one place. A young couple known as Bound for Nowhere chose this lifestyle. In 2016 they quit their jobs, sold everything they owned and have been working and traveling full time ever since. In order to pay for their expenses both MAK and Owen work as freelance artists when they are on the road. One of the perks of living in a van is that you don’t have to pay rent. Since Bound for Nowhere does not have to pay for rent they do not have to work full time, they can work whenever they want to.

“They also have the freedom to live and travel wherever and whenever they like.”

This has allowed BFN to travel and see most of the United States. If you would like to learn more about living on the road, please check out and follow MAK and Owens journey.
