On social media, there are so many sub-cultures and niche groups. That’s the beauty of it – we all have a space where we can find others that share similar interests, values, and stories. One of those groups that has always fascinated me is one that paints a picture of the dream – van lifers. And today, I am honored to be joined by Noami Grevemberg.
Noami Grevemberg is a van life OG, avid outdoorist, digital nomad and dog mom, living on the road in her classic Volkswagen Vanagon since 2016. She’s the founder of the Diversify Vanlife community organization author of the upcoming book, Living the Vanlife.
In this episode, Noami and I discuss the decision to take life to the road, her transformation from marine biologist to content creator, and how social media has supported community building for other road warriors like herself. We talk about how the van life community has evolved since pre-2020, with an influx of remote workers hitting the road, and how diversity on the road has shifted over the last few years.
We speak about how road life is portrayed online versus the reality, examining how social media is great for promoting various ways to live your life, but sometimes can be a highlight reel rather than a realistic data point. Noami brings a fresh perspective to the community of van life and her community within Diversify Vanlife that she’s building, and they’re just getting started. Let’s get into it.
