Just like most Pinays, Phoebe Leonor has always dreamed of going on adventures and traveling to as many places as she can. Her dream *officially* became a reality when she decided to go for a simpler and more sustainable lifestyle by living in a van. Read on below to know more about her story.
It all started when Phoebe inherited an old 1996 Kia Besta van from her mom.
She remodeled it herself and even shared that the customization of making the van into a home cost her around P100,000 to P250,000. It took a lot of hard work, but after two years, she started living the #vanlife.
According to Phoebe, she has saved around 70 percent from her usual expenses since she started living the van life. "One thing I learned for sure when building and living in this van is natuto akong magtipid. We can heat our own water and then make our own coffee. And we can also make our own food."
Word of advice from Phoebe: Van life isn't for everyone. "It's not always pretty and not always easy. It can be uncomfortable at times. But if you're willing to trade a little comfortability for this kind of lifestyle, I think it's all worth it."
