A travel diary, journey of discovery, and personal memoir, VAN LIVING 1971 is the story of two young designers beginning a life together. Only months after meeting, Gay and Jack Reineck decided to outfit a VW van in London and set out on the dream of adventure. Living in the van for the next 12 months, and 25,000 miles, the newlyweds drove through Europe—Turkey—Iran—Afghanistan—Pakistan—to India and back. Along the way they created an enduring love that would last for more than 50 years.
