About Me

Hello! I'm Lara, a 33-year-old Slovenian born and raised in Ljubljana. In 2017, I ventured across the ocean to Ontario, Canada, with my fiance, Gasper, and Ella, our Dogo Argentino. After exploring the East Coast for six years, we set the compass for the enchanting Vancouver Island, where we reside today.

My life doesn't fit into a single profession or a career. I'm a creative soul who loves the outdoors. I thrive on hiking, exploring, and finding solace in the beauty of nature. I'm drawn to photography, writing, cooking, yoga and weightlifting. Recently, I added acro yoga and climbing to the mix. You can often find me immersed in the pages of a book, and I have a newfound interest in tarot and spirituality. My love for learning has led me to acquire a Precision Nutrition certificate, and I'm currently on a path to becoming a 200-hour certified yoga teacher.

Travel is my lifelong passion. It's the thread that ties my life experiences together. It led me to a whole new world of alternative living - van life. Since March 2020, we've been living in a self-converted Promaster van, embracing more of a minimalistic and nomadic lifestyle. 

This website provides a platform to share insights and experiences from van life, travels, outdoor adventures, hobbies, sports, and creative endeavors. I invite you to join me on this journey as we explore the world and ourselves.


Thank you for being a part of my adventure!

Lara Mercedes
