Therese Eriksson’s journey to FREEDOM with her Full Time Female Solo Van Life

By Åsa Nilsson | May 17, 2024

Therese is a Swedish videographer that packed up her life, split from her hubby, took her cat and jumped in her converted van and moved down to Spain. 

A year ago!! WAHH!! 

Therese stands for FREEDOM, PEACE, AND COMMUNITY. Just like we do here at ‘More Moss to the People’ and she has grown into a more ‘in tune’ and aligned version of herself this past year. 

You have to follow along  to hear why she chose to leave, how she chose to do it, what was the backstory and what is her life’s dream that drives it all. 

You will see that not only is Therese creating from the vision she once only held in her mind’s eye, she is now sharing it WITH THE WORLD on her beautiful YouTube channel so we can also learn about the lands and cultures and beautiful people she is getting to encounter. 

If you can’t find it, create it. YES!

We are the lucky ones.
