Do you ever wish you could leave it all behind and just go out and explore the world? Everyone dreams about getting in a van and living a stress-free life, but there aren’t that many people who have the courage to do this. However, the fantastic story that you are going to see today will show you the benefits of living on the road and having a trustworthy best friend with you at all times.
20. LIVING THE DREAM
Today we are going to show you the story of a man who decided to leave his hometown and travel the world while living in a van. The man’s name is Rich and he is living the dream accompanied by his best friend, Willow.
19. TAKING A RISK
Even though most people are too afraid to live their dreams, Richard decided to risk it all for a chance to explore the world while living inside a van. The young man knows that the best years of his life are right now and that he shouldn’t waste them working a nine to five job.
18. AWESOME IDEA
Rich says that the thought of living inside a van has always been inside his mind and that he waited for the right opportunity to live a stress-free life for many years. Fortunately, he put aside some money over the years and he doesn’t have to worry about anything other than exploring the world with Willow.
17. HARD TO SAY GOODBYE
Rich didn’t hesitate to tell his family and friends that he is going to live on the road for the next couple of years, but the only one he couldn’t say goodbye to was his black cat, Willow.
16. MEET WILLOW
Rich knew that he needed a partner to take on his amazing trips and there was no better candidate than Willow. You won’t believe what Rich has to say about Willow…
15. BEST FRIENDS FOREVER
The man says that even though Willow is just a cat, she is his best friend and that nothing is ever going to break them apart. Another cool thing about the relationship between these two is the fact that Rich doesn’t put a leash on her. Do you think Willow ever gets lost?
14. GETTING LOST
Even though Rich doesn’t put a leash on Willow, he made sure to give her a special necklace that is tracked through GPS. This way, Willow can explore the forests and mountains without Rich ever worrying about losing her. Isn’t this amazing?
13. TRACKER NECKLACE
Since Willow is always wearing a GPs tracker around her neck, Rich lets her live her life as a feral cat. What we mean by this is that Rich allows Willow to run around the forest all by herself so that she can explore the world on her own.
12. AWESOME VIEW
Looking at this awesome view, we can’t blame Rich for deciding not to live a normal life. Incredible views like this one are one of the biggest benefits of living inside a van and traveling the world.
11. MAKING MONEY
As you would expect, the biggest problem that Rich needs to deal with is making money for food and gas. Fortunately, he has a big fan base and he sells these cool pins so that he can afford to put food in Willow’s bowl and gas inside the tank.
10. ALWAYS TOGETHER
The most incredible thing about Rich and Willow’s adventures is that they are always together. Nothing is ever going to separate them and they are living the most exciting adventure of their lives. Would you ever venture out into the world like this?

These two best friends love to have fun together and this is what makes them perfect for each other. Did anyone think that a cat can be such a fantastic travel companion?
4. CAR RIDES
Cats are not known to enjoy car rides, but it looks like Willow is special. Some people need to buy special accessories so that they can make their cars comfortable for cats, but not Rich.
3. DRIVING AROUND
