Ok here is me.

I’m 30 years old. I currently live on the East Coast of the United States, but I’m working towards living with my fiancé full-time in our converted camper van. Our van has a gothic aesthetic, like me. 🙂

I am attempting to escape capitalism by moving from our apartment into our van so we can save hard-earned dollars. Sure, maybe in another life I would have liked to afford an apartment and a van, but that life isn’t this one. At least not yet.

All this said, my real goal with this website is to inspire other goths to get outdoors and travel. While I do see a lot of goths out there being stellar and visiting all sorts of spooky places, I want you all to also consider van life as your tool to ESCAPE capitalism. It’s mine, anyways. This lifestyle is ours. This is not a modern day trend, this was always an option (and for many before us a necessity).

I never, ever, ever camped before I got a van. It changed my whole perspective. I hope to share more on that later.


If you’ve stumbled upon this rambling stream of consciousness and somehow want to learn more or follow along, I’m @gothinavan on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube (though I haven’t started YT yet). Let’s be friends.
