Vanlife: Mobile Living Made Easy

Last fall we started a collaboration with Dometic that gives us the opportunity to try the HBG 2335 cook top. Dometic’s slogan says Mobile Living Made Easy, and we can certify that their statement is right on point.


With the installation of the kitchen area with the built in the cook top, we went from our morning coffee taking 15 minutes to make, to ready in 5!



One of my favorite things about the cook top is the space efficient design with a lid, that gives us extra workspace when the hob is not in use. For us, it’s a must that every little inch in the van can be used to the max. Also, the kids thinks the glass lid looks sooo classy!

The guys at Dometic interviewed us about… well, vanlife of course 😉 You can read it here.

Vanlife: Hej

and welcome!

Ok, I’m finally trying this blog thing 🙂

The story about The horizon is calling began with the Instagram page with the same name where I share my family’s outdoors- and vanlife pictures. The vanlife part of it started just over a year ago, when we bought our Opel Movano and began the conversion. During this last year lots of new followers joined and the account grew. Vanlife and the “stuff” we associate with it, like freedom, simple living, nature and DIY seems to be popular subjects.

This blog is supposed to be a place where I can expand my thoughts, share links, tips and the pictures that doesn’t make it to Instagram.
Maybe a little further on, I will also publish videos covering topics that I get a lot of questions about, like our bunk bed construction and a guided tour in the van.

The Horizon Is Calling features the adventures of our family of four (plus two): Danne -the driver/builder/constructor and me Anna, -the one taking pictures and running all the social media stuff, our two kids Eddie -the big bro and Charlie -the little one. And of course our pups Echo & Rio, former strays, adopted from Spain.

We live in Ingarö, Sweden and honestly, we spend the majority of our time working and going to school. But whenever we get the chance, we jump in our self build camper van MoMo and head for the horizon! Most of the time we don’t make it very far, but that’s ok, because you know what they say: “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey”.

We are weekend (and vacation) warriors, dreaming about a life on the road. Join us!
