After an incredible 3 years of living, working and travelling in our self converted Sprinter Van we’ve had to make the very tough decision to abandon our tiny home in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for so, so many of us, this global pandemic has absolutely flipped our world upside down. What went from a virus that seemed far away in China, quickly made it’s way across the globe forcing us to quarantine in our 60 sq-ft in Morocco. And while quarantining was going well for us it became apparent that things would be different for a long while. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. The gravity of what we’ve just done hasn’t quite sunk in and we ((especially me (Bec)) are having a really hard time adjusting to our new reality. Having said that we think the most important thing we can all do now is STAY HOME, keep healthy with healing foods & try to look at this as a time that we (and the planet) desperately needed to reset and realign. Sending each of you so much love throughout this time x

OVERLANDING AFRICA IN OUR SPRINTER VAN has been the adventure we’ve always hoped it would be but it’s hard to predict what happens next. In fact, we are still processing everything that has happened over the last week and continues to happen... No one knows where we will end up, where our beloved tiny home on wheels will make it or for how long this pandemic will take over life as we know but all we can do is try to remain positive and move forward in the direction that feels right for us. We hope you are all keeping safe during this time ❤️.

    Did you pay the fees for the van ? Did you sell it or just live like that? Because if so the authorities may charge you money in returns of parking and if the van has non Moroccan plates then after six month a serious amount may be applicable. You got to be careful with that. Please respond

    Hello, I literally watched EVERY vlog of yours in Morocco! I am so glad that you got to know about my country's people and culture. I am happy to think that you may head down to Morocco again so to retrieve your lovely van from the parking lot. I just want to tell you if you came back and wanted to continue your trip, I'd be more than happy to welcome you at the capital city, Rabat, where I live and show you its different sightseeings. I hope you're enjoying your time as best as you can in this quarantine, and I can't wait to see you again in Morocco! Stay safe! (P.S: you're a lovely couple! )

    Honestly, watching this has given me serious anxiety! Me and my mum were stuck in South Africa trying to get back to the U.K. and were similarly surprised by the price of the tickets, £655, similarly shocked by the lack of contact and organisation from the government, I know exactly how you feel. Also, if someone dares say it’s because it’s “unprecedented”...I will flip.

    Feel sorry to see you abandon your van life ( least for a brief time), owing to the pandemic. guess that's an intelligent choice to opt for now. While hoping to see you back in you Van, When all settles with time. Understand the emotional set back to leave behind your home' is not an easy one to bear with. But as the says goes "Everything happens for a reason and definitely for the best". Hope to find time to share and update, how things turned up for you , once back in Canada.

    From a Thankful South African: In a way I am glad you never made the restt of your journey. You have NO IDEA how dangerous Africa can be ! Yes you may believe it will never happen to you ,but I'm glad you never made South Africa. Your pretty girlfriend has potentially avoided being gang raped and possibly murdered. Now you may say I'm a troll and who do I think I am saying this ?! The answer is .....I know my continent. We have lived our entire lives here ,we have fought wars on this continent. We know where we live and what precautions to take when a situation arises and even then we still fall victims to crime ,murder and rape. You're a happy foreigner who has no idea where they are. Like I said ...I don't mean to sound negative ,but I'm happy you are now home and safe.
