✨As a #thorpartner, @thorindustries asked me to share my #windowtotheworld ✨ This campaign really resonates with me👩‍🌾. I remember looking at pictures of beautiful views, shot from RV windows, and feeling inspired to make my dream a reality: TO LIVE & TRAVEL FULL-TIME IN OUR RV🚙👫🐱 To see the world from my own window. To follow my heart completely. I can't stop marveling at what's outside, at the freedom to move and be surrounded by nature💚. Our little home on wheels is a simple way of living that makes my heart happy--and I know that this is what I was looking for all along. We stop where we want, stay as long as we wish, and share it all; me, my partner Fra and our cat 🐱Ñime. New experiences become treasured memories, like the days we spent here, in the Teide National Park⛰️. It was Ñime's first time in the mountains and the forest. She couldn't contain her curiosity and excitement, jumping from one side to the other to look out the window! Now we have a little ritual. Before venturing too far, we spend some time letting her check out her surroundings. Once she feels good (with no dogs🐕 around!), a new adventure can begin... . . . #mangiaviviviaggia #roadtripping #wandergram #wanderlusters #allyouneedisroad #camperlifestyle #nomadlife #homeonwheels #travellerlife #estaes_españa #quesuerteviviraqui #vanlifeeurope #travelfreak #vanlifeculture #fulltimerv #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanlifeproject #wanderlustlife #vangrrrl #liveyouradventure #travelwithpets #campervanlife #adventurecats #amiciaquattrozampe

Why do you like it here? This National Park is amazing, offering landscapes that change drastically in only few kilometers, from pine forest to lunar, desertic locations. The main attraction, El Teide, is a sleepy volcano and the highest peak in Spain. There are trails for every level, and the routes are panoramic and well-kept. Free campsites are located around the park. It’s a dream for RV drivers!

Who’s your favorite travel buddy? Without our cat Ñime, our traveling (and life) wouldn't be the same. She's a great explorer and hiker. We share our experience with her on the road to show that cats can be great travel companions. We hope to meet more travel cats in the future! 

What noteworthy places are nearby? Vilaflor. At 1400m, it's the highest village of Tenerife, situated south of Mount Teide. Many trails start from here. One of the most famous takes you to “Paisaje Lunar” (Lunar Landscape), a geological curiosity created by erosion.

How do you decide where to go next? We ask locals. We’ve discovered lots of unknowns places this way. Real hidden gems that aren’t as busy as more famous spots. We also love using the internet to explore and map out the surrounding areas. 

Which views are on your bucket list? We left a big piece of our heart in the Canary Islands. We only visited two out of seven of the islands, Tenerife and Fuerteventura. The others island are still on our list, and we’re especially keen to see Lanzarote and its black, volcanic beaches.
