WELCOME TO KOMBI LIFESTYLE!
Our journey began when we purchased our very first VW Kombi van (1975 T2 VW Kombi Bay Window) in August 2018! My husband had taught himself how to restore and rebuild a Series III Land Rover, and once this was finished we were ready for a new project. And what a project it was, and still is!
It’s amazing how many comments and smiles this iconic vehicle receives. I remember daydreaming about travelling in VW Kombi when I was at school. That classic image of a Kombi (as seen in a myriad of magazines) that induces feel-good feelings of calm, peace, and a picture of the perfect escape – there’s something about it that just makes you smile when you see this vehicle on the road!
The Kombi for many people, seems to be a way of life; a lifestyle, a culture, and one in which its people are peaceful, fun-loving exploring travellers. And seems to be the culture for all van life travellers, who are often dreaming and planning for the next holiday destination.
HELPING OTHERS TAKE TO THE ROAD
We want to be able to help others find that perfect escape, and create their own adventure, whether it’s a weekend away in a hire car, or packing up and travelling around the country in a campervan or motorhome, we can help you create your own fun road trip experience, exploring amazing Australian destinations. There are now so many avenues that help people take to the road, however, with not a lot of information about destinations and what they offer to the road traveller.
We want to be able to make your travelling experience easier (one you can either roughly or thoroughly plan) by utilising this website not only can you view what a destination has to offer, but you can book a campervan and campsite, and plan and organise an amazing road trip adventure, short or long (or go back to the website when travelling for information). We have also tried out some fun products which can be purchased from our website, that make travelling fun too! And a fun way to be a part of the Kombi Lifestyle!
We’ve been lucky enough to combine our passions, with my husband’s mechanical skills and his enjoyment in setting us up with a reliable hard-working Kombi, and my skills as a travel writer, (although I’m exploring a country I know best, my own, Australia) I have created and will continue to write articles and reviews on destinations, festivals (the perfect event for the road traveller), camping and VW Kombi products, thanks to a reliable vehicle to travel in :-).
I’ve currently been writing for The Weekender Travel – with a few articles published, these two are my favourites – Five Lands Walk Connecting People to People to Place and 40th, St Albans Folk Festival. Kombi Lifestyle will help immerse you in information on road travel, camping, holiday destinations and activities to explore! 🙂 Don’t forget to check out our comprehensive holiday guides where you can create your own road trip adventure, and it’s easy to organise, as it’s all on one website!
We’ll keep you posted on our travels and any travelling information, i.e. updating our website with new travel information and destinations as we discover them. Keep us posted on your travels, we’d love to hear from you!
