Woman, 22, quits busy lifestyle to live in van so she doesn’t pay for mortgage

A woman quit her busy lifestyle to live full-time in a van – and she has no regrets.

Amelise Burr, 22, who lived in Cambridgeshire, UK, is currently driving around France and aims to visit the rest of Europe soon.

The YouTuber chose her new lifestyle as she didn't want to pay extortion on rent or mortgage rates.

Now posting her life on YouTube, she's garnered a huge 177,000 subscribers on her channel.

And speaking to Daily Star, Amelise revealed how things changed when her gran, who was French, passed away.

She said: "Regular housing has always been a struggle, I've lived in many places and felt uncomfortable in houses.

"I came across van life when my life and family's life came crashing down after my grandma died."

Amelise moved into the van as a solution to help "escape reality" – and it means she can visit some awesome places.

She claimed: "The best thing is that I'm not wasting loads of money on living expenses such as mortgage and rent.

"If I get bored of a location, I can just go somewhere else and take my home with me.

"The worst part would be when you can't find anywhere to park at night, that can get really tiring."

Amelise is currently living it up in France and plans to visit other parts of the country, as well as other European cities.

She added: "I'd like to go to Greece next, or head to Germany at Christmas to see the markets.

"I make an income on the road by working in food trucks, selling bracelets and now I've created a YouTube.

"I'm now fortunate enough to make a full time income from making YouTube videos about my life."

The traveller is free to roam around Europe, but she does miss having someone there.

She revealed: "I don't have a boyfriend, actually I never dated anyone. I'd like to but living on the road is difficult.

"But honestly, it's not too bad because I'm focusing on building my life, I barely have time for myself as it is!"

Now she's given those who want to live and travel solo in a van some advice.

She detailed: "Don't let people scare you, most people will probably tell you that it's a bad idea.

"But most people don't achieve their dreams because they're scared – so don't listen to those who try to stop you.

"Life is for living! Get outside your comfort zone, you'd be surprised how quickly your comfort zone expands."
