    Justin Hales wanted to revisit his childhood love of caravanning. When searching for the perfect van to hire, he couldn’t help but notice all of the un-used caravans and campers sitting on driveways around his neighbourhood. Five years later, Camplify began and Justin’s nostalgia trip has led to a global community of thousands of van owners in Australia, the UK, Spain and New Zealand now boosting their income by sharing the joys of caravanning with others.

    The last Tiny Island Podcast I recorded while I was on the road working, was literally recorded while I was on "The Road". Steve Mooney has picked me up and drove me across QLD for the last 3 years. Steve has an infectious energy about him. He's been in the chauffeur game for ten years and is never short of a story to tell.

Great yarns with a great bloke..

Like a few people recently I heard Kurt on the Howie Games and was blown away by Kurt, his story and outlooks on life. I have listened to about 6 Tiny Island stories so far.. this is by far one of the best podcasts around. Kurt asks great questions and is a great listener..
