A Simple Life With Big Adventures - Traveling Couple - Lara Lill Alex Lill - The Lills

SAY HELLO TO THE LILLS!

We’re Alex and Lara Lill, a 24-7/365 couple, focused on learning, building and teaching A Simple Life With Big Adventures!

After traveling in our 1978 VW Bus for over 2+ years, life led us to a 1961 GM Bus in the New Mexico desert. We’re now converting it into a home on wheels!

Come along with us, as we educate ourselves and share alternative views on life, love, energy, food and travel.
