Most of us dream about a life of adventure, but whether it’s time, money, responsibility, or good old-fashioned fear, something always holds us back. But Travis Burke is living proof that the only thing stopping you is you, and that all you need to live the dream is a camper van, a camera, and a burning desire for adventure.
The American photographer travels around in his “adventure mobile,” which started out as his grandma’s old van before he converted it into a fully habitable home. He funds his travels via a combination of photography, product testing, writing reviews, and general freelancing work, and as he writes on his website, “I really hope to inspire people to get out and explore their own backyard. You don’t need to plan an elaborate vacation to wind up in a beautiful and unique landscape. By constantly trying to push myself to the next level I hope that I can creatively encourage others to do the same.” Burke has been travelling around the US for the last two years, and it doesn’t look like he’s stopping anytime soon!
