Hi family travellers! We’re @summerofseventyfive, a road tripping family from Australia! We spend time exploring the land down under in our vintage Kombi van. . You may recognise us from this photo on the cover of the latest issue of Family Traveller, where our story was also featured. We’re here doing a takeover to celebrate the launch of The Escape Issue, and to give you a glimpse into what our escape looks like. . We’ll be sharing more with you on stories, so check back over the weekend, and take a peek at our little home among the gum trees! .

This stunning sunset photo by @summerofseventyfive became our Escape Issue cover. We were inspired to pack up all of our belongings and hit the road as part of the #vanlife movement.
