"I am definitely happier living this lifestyle, van life has given us the space and energy to live more intentionally, we've gained the tools and ability to focus on what matters most to us"
Meet Dustin & Noami from Irietoaurora & Diversify.Vanlife
These two are doing some incredible things for the Van Life community and share brilliant content.
Dustin and Noami are digital nomads, eco warriors and have been travelling on the road for nearly five years with their dog.
They were working a 9 to 5 in New Orleans and decided it was time to take off and explore the national parks. They gave themselves six months and here they are five years later.
Noami created Diversify Vanlife in 2019 in response to the lack of representation of black, indigenous, asian, latin, or other people of colours within the nomadic community as well as other marginalised individuals in the road travel community. It has grown into a supportive community and movement of BIPOC, LGBTQIA, disabled and previously unheard voices taking up space and shifting the narrative.
