for the

Adventure of a Lifetime?

you say?

let the adventure begin

that you lead a busy life,
that your annual leave time
is precious.

that you don't want
to waste one single second
of it on just another
mundane, same, same holiday.

that you don't want to come home so exhausted from an adrenalin packed tour that you need a holiday from your holiday!

a new exciting adventure without having to plan everything down to the last tiniest detail.

the excitement
of an awesome
adventure, yet
at the same time be chillaxed with those
laid back feels and retro good time vibes.

if you had to go back to work still exhausted, still run-down,  because you've been running to a timetable, that you've rushed around trying to tick all the boxes just so you could say
"been there and done that!"

And then be feeling sad and sorry for yourself because yet another holiday ended up being not even the tiniest bit like the dream in your head?

What if all you had to do was hop into your retro kombi camper and hit the road?

What if that road led to jaw dropping scenery? What if you found a spot that said - stay here a while? And you did, for more than one night even!

Then what if you knew this - you don't have to be anywhere other than where you are right now.

You'll know to just be in the moment, breathe, and enjoy the company you're with. You'll be able to take pleasure in the slow journey of this new adventure, the anticipation of what might come next.

Your holiday will be totally the opposite of mundane and you'll be having a most amazing road trip!

What a

experience that will be!!

Retro Kombi Vibes!

We're Lynda & Warren

Adventure following KOMBI FANATICS, seeking the thrill OF NEW ROAD TRIPS

"Happy to be on the road again?" I'll say to Warren as he gets behind the wheel at the start of our road trip. "Always" is the answer I get - Every. Single. Time!

We get a huge buzz out of driving our retro kombi van, Aggiee, and exploring New Zealand's stunning country, from small towns to cities, from beaches to lakes, from mountains to the bush. We've got it all here!

Makes our day when we get a wave, a thumbs up, or even yells from people hanging out their windows.

We even get random strangers popping over when we're parked up to talk about their past lives and adventures with their beloved kombi van, and we're happy to chat.

Isn't that what life is all about? Making connections.

MORE ABOUT HIM

From the mountains & trees

to the beaches & sea, i love it all.

I'm Warren, a typical kiwi with DIY attitude. 

Hunting and gathering is my jam and any chance I get I'll be out there!

Stalking white tail deer on Stewart Island | Snorkelling for paua at Riverton or Bluff | Diving for crayfish in Doubtful Sound | Blue cod fishing on Foveaux Strait.

I've owned a mechanical workshop for many a year now, so it's a bit of an occupational hazard to collect vehicles. Not sure how or why the collection expanded to kombi vans but there you go - and here we are!  

That buzz we get when we're driving our retro kombi van? I want you to feel that buzz too!

It totally makes my day when we see you at the end of your trip and you can't stop grinning because of the awesome time you've had!

MORE ABOUT HER

From the love of the open road

to that feeling of freedom.

Hey, I'm Lynda, and creative is my middle name!

Sewing, gardening or creating in the kitchen. Any type of artwork and amateur photography. I LOVE black and white film photography most of all -it's so expressive!

A total introvert who hates small talk, I can still talk your ear off about kombi's, my fur babies, and sewing, which just happens to be my other great passion. Most days you'll find me proudly wearing something handmade (and funny thing, that retro vibe extends to my new/old-look Singer sewing machine - guess I love retro anything!)

I want you to feel that excitement, that passion, that happy, holiday experience - one you're going to talk about for years - because we only get one life and I want you to make the most of yours!
