The Vagabond Adventures team is made up of Lucie (the Scottish lass), Lachlan (the Australian bloke) & Bow Wow (the African dog).

Our mission is to travel the world with our faithful hound, Bow Wow, helping communities through trade, not aid, and in support of wildlife conservation. We will share our experiences of the world’s wonderment and peculiarities with you by going to extraordinary places and leaving with insight, new skills, friendships and Vagabond Treasures! Our journey will be documented through writing, photography and film.

Vagabond Van

As we travel, we search for traditional craftspeople that we may develop products with to market and sell through our online shop, Vagabond Van. In this way, we aim to help communities be self sufficient and maintain vanishing handicrafts. Where possible we encourage the use of recycled materials, adding to the unique story which each product has to tell and minimising its impact on the environment.

Wildlife Conservation

We support organisations involved in wildlife conservation by:

  • Promoting and raising awareness through writing, photography and film.
  • Raising money through photography sales (50% of profit), Vagabond Van sales (20% of profit) and photographic exhibitions (up to 100% of profit).

“Over billions of years on a unique sphere, chance has painted a thin covering of life………complex, improbable, wonderful and fragile. Suddenly we humans (a recently arrived species no longer subject to the checks and balances inherent in nature), have grown in population, technology and intelligence to a position of terrible power: We now wield the paintbrush.” – Paul Mcready a NASA engineer and environmentalist.

    I stumbled across your site today – sitting behind my PC, gratefull for the rain but trying to find the inspiration to ‘work’.

    Wonderful memories of my travels came flooding back and I will admit, a tear to two dropped to my desk.

    Our Landy is parked outside looking as sad and uninspired as I feel – and our dog is probably the same ‘picture of happiness’ as he stares out at a wet, neatly trimmed lawn.

    Seasons of life change quickly and we have now entered the ‘starting a family’ phase. Although the joys and rewards are very special – there is still that pull towards the ‘unkown’ – seeing the openroad infront of you and not knowing what experiences await.

    I look forward to sharing your experiences online but to be honest, I wish I could be right there with you – Landy’s do so look good in convoy!

  2. We cherish every day and are so touched to receive such a special message. Thank you!
