Need help with travel-project!
Posted January 10th, 2014 - 3:12 pm by from Orsa, Sweden (Permalink)
Heya folks!

I hate to be doing this, but since me and my girlfriend don't have much money I figured I would atleast try and see what happens. Thing is, me and my gilrfriend bought an old van(from 1980) last year, which we have repaired and renovated, it works great and it's really beautiful. Only problem is: she's(the van) is a heavy drinker. So, we've come to the conclusion that we might have to sell it since gasoline in Sweden(and Europe) is insanely expensive. But, we could get around that problem by switching the engine to a newer one that drinks diesel instead of gasoline, since diesel is more energy-efficient. Then we come to the real problem: money. I'm a student (which doesn't bring much money except more debt) and my girlfriend is currently unemployed, and finding a job in Sweden today is quite difficult. Our dream is to live in the van, travel around in Europe for acouple of months (years?)and then hopefully, eventually finding a place for ourselves where we could settle down.

If anyone would like to help us, then it would be much appreciated. You can help us by visiting this page: http://www.gofundme.com/black-pearl

Many thanks in advance!

Cheers!
