G'day, Interesting video. I would have expected that you would get more involved in "Community" activities - to me it seems as if you are too reclusive, I couldn't/wouldn't live that way - I tend to get more involved with actually doing some volunteering to get my feeling for life. Personally I would feel like I was being miserly not putting back more than I was taking from Society. Don't get me wrong, I do admire your getting out there and doing it attitude but; I would like you to detail more of your giving back - perhaps there are some Senior Citizens/Children/food banks you could help some times.

To me you are not living on a budget, rather existing cheaply.

Thanks for your feedback Possum3.

My community activities are all online (its been a transition, however that is the way the world is going) and I give to those who are in my networks. Ie free healing groups, free women's sessions, sending out gifts from the earth to those who need them, offering phone calls to those who are going through a hard time. I don't share this on my YouTube vlogs as I try to keep them as van life as possible with some business info added in. So, I'm wondering, do you think I should add some more of this in?

In addition, I run a business and this takes much work, passion and dedication. I have also just finished more studies. My life isn't just about van life vlogging, so that's just an added extra. 

I have spent much of my life giving in community, including volunteering for ST Vincent De Paul for numerous years. I absolutely loved giving for most of my life until I gave so much within my last job and burnt out, numerous times. Obviously I still give as its in my nature, but give when and where I can. 

Each to their own, everyone requires different experiences depending on their map of the world. 'Living cheaply' I could definitely agree with and that gives for further thought re naming vlogs,  'existing cheaply' thought does not. I love my life and all that it encompasses.

Aha, that's what I thought - you are involved in other things - tell us about that side, when you are doing the vlogs.
