In Octo­ber 2012 the duo, along with their young daugh­ter Colette, took to the wind­ing roads of South Amer­i­ca in their VW West­falia, orig­i­nal­ly aim­ing to return to the com­fort of their Cal­i­forn­ian home 12 months later.

Since then, the Harteau’s have grown from three to four, wel­com­ing their sec­ond daugh­ter in Brazil in 2014. While the lim­it­ed space, lack of show­er and con­stant dri­ving might not be the dream for every­one, the unique and adven­tur­ous lifestyle Adam and Emi­ly have cre­at­ed is inspir­ing peo­ple world­wide to pack up their mate­ri­al­is­tic pos­ses­sions in search for green­er pas­tures. Through their blog Our Open Road,’ the fam­i­ly doc­u­ments their incred­i­ble des­ti­na­tions as well as sell unique, one of a kind home wears hand craft­ed by South Amer­i­can arti­sans in their month­ly online 24-hour Bazaar.
