This website started out as The Vanlife Blog back in January 2015. At the Vanlife Blog I produced campervan related content, like practical how-to articles and videos, and covered what I got up to in my van when out and about.
Fast forward to the autumn of 2016, and the original Vanlife Blog content moved over to the new Vanlife.tv domain. In doing so, I rebranded my YouTube Channel to Vanlife TV. Things continued as before with regular vanlife articles and videos, and Vanlife.tv become an alternative portal for my videos on YouTube.
After the van build was complete, I branched out into producing videos showing how I was using the van, and some of the outdoor adventures that I was undertaking. Climbing and mountain biking feature heavily as theses are two of the sports I love the most – and they just so happen to take me and the van to some awesome places.
2021 and onwards
At the end of 2020, I came to the realisation that having a dedicated “vanlife” channel was limiting my choices and direction of the channel and the website.
So Alternative Adventures was born, and all content changed to reflect the new name. Moving forward I feel the new name an encase a number of new directions and ideas, and not just limit me to the vanlife scene.
So thats how I got to where I am today. If you have any questions or comments, please be sure to get in touch!
See you on the road!
