Since starting my campervan conversion I’ve been looking at a lot of YouTube video’s about van conversions. One of the best channels I’ve come across is called the Indie Projects.
Theo and Bea (the channel owners) have a real mix of video’s ranging from travel logs, photography advice, following their self build campervan project and a series of video’s showcasing alternative living spaces (such as campers, old ambulances, bothies and canal barges).
Before I get going with today’s post, I just want to answer a question that I’ve been asked a lot recently - why on earth would you want to convert a van into a camper instead of just buying a ready-made campervan?
There are of course many reasons why people choose to convert a van into a campervan.
For me, I have wanted a campervan for almost as long as I can remember.
After fracturing the back of my heel towards the end of July, I though it was probably best to have a few weeks off in August to completely rest up and allow my foot to heal. And I’m please to say that I’m now OFF MY CRUTCHES!
So, as I'm sure you're probably aware, I'm getting around on crutches at the moment. And I'm really not enjoying it!
Looking at the positives, I have had a really welcome chance to reflect and plan. I've up-dated my website, added a new page and made a few changes to my Etsy shop. I've also written a few new articles and am really excited about the way I'm hoping to develop this blog.
Mental health can mean different things to different people and there are a whole range of medical and psychological conditions that fall under the umbrella of mental health. We're all so different and, with so many different mental health conditions, it isn’t really surprising that there doesn’t seem to be a one-size-fits-all treatment for mental health conditions.
With this in mind, I am putting together a series of posts on mental health and how photography has helped me and others I've known, through periods of difficult mental health. My hope in putting this series together is to share some of the tips and advice that have helped me in the past, in the hope that a few other people may also find some value.
