COVID-19 has changed our lives. From working anywhere to making your loved ones a greater priority, there’s no denying that it is reshaping the world as we know it. These unprecedented times have taught us that reassessing the conventional grind and what is truly valuable for a happy and balanced life is more important than ever before.

Before the start of the pandemic, #VanLife was just taking its baby steps, fueled by enviable photos and DIY van conversion videos across social media. But in the past couple of years, the #vanlife community has attracted more followers.

When you think about it, #vanlife offers people more than freedom and self-determination; it offers them a chance to reset and recharge, engulfed in nature, while living in a self-sustained van. 

Nothing could be better than hitting the road with your significant other. It’s just you and your love sharing unforgettable moments on the open road in about 60 square feet of craftsmanship and excitement. What can be more romantic than lying in bed together while looking out at a sprawling landscape?

Posting #IWokeUpLikeThis photos against the rugged Rocky Mountains is another plus of getting away from everything and everyone in a camper with that special person.

That’s where QuirkyCampers comes in. This knowledgeable site offers handcrafted campervan rentals designed to take you across the UK (and now New Zealand). Think of it as your friendly, local travel agent that connects you with like-minded campervan owners, so you can enjoy a  thousand views for a distraction-free weekend or a new family adventure. 

Here are some ways you can add some romance to your trip and get the most out of your campervan experience.

Plan Outdoor Excursions & Take Glamping to a New Level

There’s just something about a campfire. About the great outdoors. About roaming the country as you please with your loved one. The possibilities are endless for boaters, anglers and nature lovers. While there is no one size fits all when it comes to #vanlife and romance, here are some ideas and quick tips to get you started: 

Movie Night

You can’t go wrong with a movie date. Download some movies onto an iPad or laptop and bring your favorite blankets, pillows, candles, and snacks to an outdoor campsite with you to enjoy a movie night under the stars. If you have a projector, you could even hang up a white sheet on the van.

Camping on the Beach

Sure, you could go camping in the mountains. But beach camping can take your outdoor adventure up a notch—open sky? Campfires? Salt air? Barefoot walks on the beach? Could there be anything more romantic than spending your days splashing in the water and your nights sleeping beneath the stars with your significant other?

Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed is always a good way to start the day, and dream getaways just make it better. While you may be tempted to lean into the spontaneity of vanlife and try something new and exciting every day, sometimes it’s nice to get back to the basics. After a few back-to-back unforgettable adventures, settling in with your partner and enjoying your favorite breakfast in bed can be the perfect refresher. Take a coffee or tea, sit down, and relax together.

Take a Hike—Together!

Exploring the scenery and observing the wildlife is a memorable date experience that will bring you closer, especially when you sit down for a picnic. Surprise your loved one with wine, cheese, chocolate and flowers on a new trail! But even if you’ve been on this trail a dozen times before, you’re bound to find something new you’ll both remember for years to come.

Couples Can Bring Creature Comforts & Fur Babies Along Too

So what exactly is it that makes for a great campervan? How about affordability, flexibility, mobility, and taking your hotel room with you everywhere you go. Quirky Campers offers luxury campervans that come with amenities that include a comfy bed, a functional kitchen, bookshelves, and solar power so you can go off-grid. 

Think of the convenience of always being in your own kitchen, whether you’re parked or on the move; microwave, stove, and cabinets to store all your favorite food, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, and more. You’ll have access to running water so you can shower whenever you want. After spending the day hiking, you can return to the camper to relax with all the amenities of home. Plus, with your own bathroom, you’ll never need to use a gas station or rest area’s facilities again. 

Best of all, you’ll have all the creature comforts of your own bed to sleep in overnight or just when you need a moment to decompress. There’s nothing better than pulling over and napping comfortably in fully conditioned sleeping accommodations.

Enjoying van life as a family means you can be spontaneous with little ones in tow. Choosing the right campervan for your family is a deeply personal choice, but that’s why Quirky Campers has a great selection of campervans that are perfect for families of all sizes.

Packing for a family holiday has never been easier. Booking a campervan can help you get back some of that spontaneity and freedom with the whole family. Quirky Campers has some of the very best campervans for families

A campervan promises an adventure your kids won’t soon forget, whether you’re just getting out of town or crossing the country. 

Getting on the road with your pets along too can make a trip even better. A good road trip isn’t just about the destination. It’s about the journey. So, you’ll need the appropriate vehicle for your journey. While offering space for gear and room to sleep for you, you’ll want space for your animal companions — a place where they can hide when they feel nervous, and sleep after a long day of adventuring. This can be a dog bed, crate, or even a backseat. Pet-friendly campervans have all that while offering you the ability to visit dog and pet-friendly campsites, so you never have to leave them alone. 

Whether you’re a seasoned road tripper or you’re just beginning your family #vanlife journey, you can take advantage of such amenities to extend your stay beyond the capacities of your gas tank. That way, you can focus on what matters – having the adventure of a lifetime with those who matter most.
