DescriptionDiscover what it's really like to live and work full-time on the road in a camper van from eco-vanlifer and founder of the Diversify Vanlife movement, Noami Grevemberg. Feeling dissatisfied with her office job and her "stationary home," in 2016 Noami Grevemberg took a bold step. She quit her job, sold her belongings, and set out in her 1985 VW Vanagon to pursue a life of simplicity and travel with her husband and German Shepherd by her side. In her years living fulltime on the road, Noami has become an expert in the many aspects of vanlife. In her book Living the Vanlife, she digs into all aspects of the lifestyle, from getting over the uncomfortable feeling of uncertainty, to creating a sustainable, thriving life of adventure and a captivating path of choosing whatever it is you truly want for yourself. Through personal stories and actionable advice, Noami candidly and compassionately demonstrates for readers that challenging the "status quo" means taking bold steps, venturing out of your comfort zone, taking risks, and living intentionally. As a Trinidadian immigrant, Noami also takes a practical look at life on the road as a BIPOC navigating many intersections and speaks to topics like converting a van to fit your specific needs, budgeting for vanlife, finding employment, staying safe, and building a supportive community on the road. Featuring evocative full-color photographs of Noami's journey, Living the Vanlife is an inclusive and celebratory look at an increasingly popular way of life.

About the Author
Noami J. Grevemberg is a vanlife OG (since 2016), remote entrepreneur, and dog mom, living on the road in her classic Volkswagen Vanagon. Born and raised in a remote village on the island of Trinidad, she believes in nature's ability to heal and inspire. As a child, her favorite pastime was weekly poetry recitals by oil lantern in her grandmother's living room, which invoked a passion for storytelling. After leaving behind the corporate grind to live in a van full-time, Noami rekindled her love for storytelling--a gift she now uses as a tool to break down barriers and cultivate intentionally inclusive spaces. Noami is the proud founder of the Diversify Vanlife community organization, a self-taught photographer, avid outdoorist, and she considers herself an accidental minimalist. When she's not hunting for WiFi or exploring the backroads of America with her partner and German Shepherd pup, you can find Noami in her tiny van-kitchen cooking up fiery cultural dishes inspired by her Afro-Indo Caribbean roots.
