This idea was a joke at first, but after having a quick moment to think about it for real, they realized it could seriously be the best and most achievable option for their plan to travel around the world with lowest possible costs.

2. They Thought of Everything

They decided to buy a Ford Transit van that offered the best options. They chose it because it had parts that could be easily found and replaced worldwide in case it breaks down.

This van didn't require a special license, and it's the biggest vehicle they could find that allowed them to drive with their standard license around the world.

They made the 3D plan of the rooms inside the van. They had to use all the available space in the van.

They used solar panels placed on the roof to generate electricity for the entire home. It can even power the water pump!

They have a small stove that doesn't take a lot of space, but it still good enough to heat up the whole place.

8. Bedroom and Toilet

They placed the bedroom on top of the cabin, and this love nest looks pretty romantic. The toilet is small but is not crowded, and it has a shower.

9. Furniture

There is a sofa that has a drawer under it, which is a pretty smart move since it is more compact and leaves more free space inside the van.

10. The Kitchen
