Hi! We are Lydia and Wehan, high school sweethearts who made the crazy decision to sell our house and quit our jobs so that we could go on the big lap of Australia in our self converted Sprinter van.
Below is a little timeframe of the events leading up to the big lap that we’re now on:
- We first came up with this crazy idea on the 27th of May 2021. We sat on it for a week and discussed details before we made it official on the 2nd of June 2021.
- Wehan spent all of his free time finishing up some renovations on our house before signing with a real estate agent on the 11th August 2021.
- We accepted an offer on the house on the 17th of August 2021 before the house even went on the market.
- On the 5th of October 2021 our house was officially sold and settled and we moved out.
- After months of searching we bought a van on the 28th of January 2022, we did some work on it in our free time but Wehan started converting the van full time from June 2022.
- Lydia quit her job on the 22nd of July 2022. After her last day on the 19th of August 2022 she also began working on the van full time.
- The van was finished and officially approved and registered as a motorhome conversion on the 7th of November 2022.
- We said goodbye to family and friends and set out on our big lap of Australia on the 16th of November 2022.
