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! You can read about this journey on our VW Restoration page.
It’s amazing how many comments and smiles this iconic vehicle receives. I remember daydreaming about travelling in a VW Kombi when I was at school. That classic image of a Kombi (as seen in a myriad of magazines) that creates a feel-good journey, there’s something about it that just makes you smile when you see this vehicle on the road!
HELPING YOU FIND THAT PERFECT ESCAPE
We want to help you find that perfect escape and create your own adventure, whether it’s a weekend away in a hire car, or packing up and travelling around the state in a campervan or motorhome, we can help you create your own fun road trip experience, exploring amazing Australian destinations in NSW.
To help travellers hit the road with ease (and with a little adventure), we’ve included information on how destinations can be organised into a road trip (i.e. what are the popular sites, stopping points, eateries, accommodation, events, insider tips, or history that make a place more interesting and fun to see). While we visit popular main towns, we are in search of hidden gems; towns less travelled, and newly established tourist sights, or ones that may be overlooked.
Kombi Lifestyle help travellers create positive road trip experiences, with guides that are perfect for both the novice and experienced road-tripper. Our Kombi has given us the opportunity to explore places we would not have usually discovered (we have regular stops in the Kombi), which has allowed us to create articles that are great starting points for any road-trip holiday!
We want to make your travelling experience easier (we’ve done the hard work, found the not so nice places, to be able to list the best places for you to see). You can either roughly or thoroughly plan your journey by utilising this website – not only can you view what a destination has to offer, but you can also book a vehicle, hotel or campsite, even check a cafe’s menu, or the actual sites you want to explore (with the attached links), and organise an amazing road-trip adventure!
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 for The Weekender Travel, our expertise has allowed us to explore destinations, and when we can – providing insider information to the public.
A couple of my favourite articles published through The Weekender Travel are the 40th, St Albans Folk Festival and the Weekender’s Guide to Ettalong Beach NSW. Kombi Lifestyle will help immerse you in road travel, holiday destinations, places to eat, places to stay, activities to explore, sights to see, and helpful background information to learn before a trip! Don’t forget to check out our comprehensive holiday guides where you can create your own road trip adventure, all on the one website, too easy!
We’ll keep you posted on our travels, i.e. updating our website or social media sites with new travel information and destinations as we discover them (for the moment, with more writing projects we are now only focusing on our website and Instagram page). Keep in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
