While you were busy whipping up the perfect loaf of sourdough burrowed in your overpriced London apartment during lockdown 1.0, there was a movement of millennials preparing to uproot their entire city existence to embark on a nomadic journey in their newly renovated van. And of course they took it upon themselves to blast their expedition and process all over TikTok.

Over a year later and TikTok’s #vanlife hashtag now boasts over 3.6billion views, with thousands of millennials sharing their journey from van to tiny home. Sure, it’s provided TikTok users with escapism for the last year, allowing them to be a fly-on-the-wall throughout the whole process and travel the world virtually through their mobile device, but now with lockdown restrictions easing here in the UK, the vaccine being successfully rolled out and travelling aboard options soon to follow, we’re certain many more will want to jump on this nomadic trend and transform their RV, van or car into their own tiny home on wheels.

With more companies moving to remote working full time and house prices continuing to stay largely at unachievable rates, many individuals are eager to take part in this nomadic movement. TikTok has allowed thousands to share their journey and create a close-knit online community of fellow travellers wanting a piece of the action.

If you’re intrigued by this nomadic lifestyle or want to uncover more of the beautiful scenery, style interiors and vibrant personalities, read on to meet the off-grid TikTokers who’ll make you want to uproot and travel…
