Hey, we are Mark & Sophie We are the proud owners of our Ambulance conversion Florence (Flo) and we are the passionate foodies behind Van Life Eats. As a couple, we live separately, Mark lives full time in Flo whilst Sophie lives in a house. Weekends then become our adventure time but we also often have an evening dinner time in Flo. Whatever the occasion, we always aim to impress one another with great van cooked meal. As a certified nutritionist and personal trainer, Mark tends to enjoy the balance of maintaining a healthy, active van life lifestyle, however, portion control isn't Marks strong point! ? Sophie has the taste buds and knows exactly how to put the heart into a hearty meal. If it makes you dribble then it's one of Sophie's recipes!
