They Travel The World In A Camper Van… The Photos Will Give You New Life Goals.

Lauren Winslow-Llewellyn, 27, and Craig Hubbard, 33, of Brighton found love while working at a PizzaExpress, and that love brought them through nine years of companionship and eight years of excellent adventures.

The two wanderlusts have traveled across the world, including to places in Asia, Australia, and Central and South America. Today, we're highlighting their latest trip across North America, which they enjoyed in a Dodge Ram 1500 they purchased for £2,900 (about $3,500).

If you've traveled with your significant other, you know that it can be go either way. You can tear each other apart (and hopefully have a fantastic makeup) or grow closer to one another. According to a survey by the U.S. Travel Association, couples that travel together have more romance and sex in their lives than those don't.

Judging by the photos below, traveling has brought Lauren and Craig a very healthy glow. Turns out that for some folks, traveling can be the ultimate relationship enhancer.

"There's no denying it's a little on the small side," he said. "Moving around while bent over or kneeling on the floor to cook takes some time to master but you get used to it and it's just like a mini-home."

"Our home is on wheels, we can pull up at a lake and camp under the stars, wake up and have a refreshing dip, sit quietly and look for wildlife," Craig continued.

They keep the van nice and clean. It's cozy but it still fits a double bed. Do you think you could get used to this?

We know what you're thinking. How did these two shower? Craig explained, "If we find a tap, we'll fill up the solar shower and hope to find a private location to wash." Other times, they would bathe in lakes, rivers, or wash themselves at beach showers.

Oh, you know. Just hanging out at Custer State Park in South Dakota.

Not only did they brave the snow at Yellowstone National Park, they kept their energy and smiles up.

To prepare for the trip, they saved about £5,000 (around $6,090). They sure know how to stretch that dollar. Most couples would blow that in a week or two.

If that sounds idyllic, get this. They'll also be house-sitting in Greece over the holidays. After that, they're thinking of volunteering in Morocco.
