Travel, Adventure & Road Trips | Jits into the Sunset

By Tania & Adam
Welcome! We're Tania and Adam, travel filmmakers living on the road in our campervan, Jits. Join us as we share insights into what it's been like to quit our jobs, and live on the road full-time. We host conversations with inspirational people who have chosen an alternative way of life. Whether it's making full-time travel a lifestyle, setting up an off grid homestead, or facing into adventure. We hope to pass on lessons learnt along the way and encourage you to follow your own path.

EP 15 | Small Van, Big Family - Amy from @Van_Life_Family_
This week we’re joined by our friend Amy from @van_life_family_ who has travelled the U.K., Ireland & Europe in a tiny VW T4, with her husband Dan, her two daughters who are aged 7 & 10, and their family dog, Luna. A big family in a tiny campervan who swapped the luxuries of all-inclusive holidays for the simplicities of Van life, spending quality time as a family and discovering how van life allows them to live more with less. In our conversation, Amy opens up about her mental health struggles and how their rolling home has become "therapy on wheels" for the whole family.

EP 13 | No, we're not pregnant but... Van Life Q&A
We've got something to tell you... an unexpected surprise to reveal! Thank you for joining us for another episode, recorded in our little rusty van, Jits, where we have parked up at a layby, next to horses and their foal.  Besides the surprise, in this episode, we go over some of the questions that you've asked on Instagram, including:   “Do either of you miss your lifestyle pre-van life? "Do you have similar standards for cleanliness? If not, how do you deal w/that in such a small space?" "What are your upcoming travel plans? Are you spending the winter in mainland Europe again? Are you planning on having kids? If yes, would it be the end of full-time van life? “How much money do you make from YouTube” "Are you planning to travel to the US?" 🎙️THIS PODCAST PRODUCTION IS SELF-FUNDED, SUPPORT US HERE: https://www.patreon.com/jitsintothesunset  Other ways to support us: Be sure to subscribe to our podcast & recommend us to your friends + tag us on socials (word of mouth helps us grow!)

If you are thinking about or planning to road trip Ireland in either a campervan or motorhome, then this is the episode for you.  In this episode, we cover the following:  What makes Ireland stand-out and What About The weather?

EP 4 | Think Big, Be Brave & Explore, a conversation with ‘The Newbys’ - Adventure Travel Family
We are VERY excited to welcome our FIRST ever guests to the show; our adventurous, inspiring friends and fellow YouTubers, John & Tara Newby, a.k.a. 'The Newbys'  WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN 🎙 When John & Tara got married in Antarctica in 2019, they vowed experience would always trump wealth, and that ‘lines across maps would always be more important than numbers in the bank’. It’s no surprise that their motto in life is ‘Think Big, Be Brave & Explore’. We discuss this motto at length through anecdotes, in hopes that it can inspire you to incorporate it into your own life and decision-making. THE NEWBYS | A FAMILY OF EXPLORERS! 👱🏼‍♀️TARA: Growing up in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa, Tara spent her 20s indulging her passions working in the safari industry, and hanging out with chimpanzees and lions! 👨🏻‍🦰JOHN: Over the last 20 years, John has explored more than 160+ of the world’s 193 countries. More often than not, he did this on a shoestring budget, hitch-hiking and sleeping on doorsteps, in search of adventure! 👶🏼 BABY CRUSOE: Cheeky 16-month-old toddler, Crusoe, has already been to 23 countries across 4 continents - hanging out with meerkats and elephants along the way. TRAVEL, VAN LIFE & HOMESTEAD RENOVATION From world travel, to road-tripping Europe in their self-converted camper van, to off-roading in Africa, to an Epic US road trip, it's been a wild ride for @thenewbys. And now their latest adventure involves them restoring an old abandoned farm in Portugal, to turn it into a sustainable off-grid homestead with next to no experience. ABOUT THE JITS INTO THE SUNSET PODCAST We are Tania & Adam, travel filmmakers living on the road in our old ‘jittery’ campervan, Jits. Join us every Sunday (wherever you get your podcasts), as we share insights into what it's been like to quit our jobs, and live on the road full-time. Through our experience and through conversations with others, who like us, have chosen an alternative lifestyle, we set out to pass on lessons learned from other ways of living. We're excited to have you join us!
