Hi, we are Davide and Laura, a crazy couple. We love to travel, cook, play sports and crazy things. We have a baby girl and a baby on the way, we are Italian and our camper is called Furbone, it is the combination of two words, a smart idea and a van. As soon as we can, we seek freedom outside the city, we don't always plan a destination but this is the beautiful part. instagram.com/vwt4_furbone_

Spaghetti alla carbonara is another amazing vanlife recipe from @vwt4_furbone_. This italian recipe uses guanciale, similar to pancetta. However, rather than being cut from pork belly guanciale is cut from pork cheek. If you are unable to find this then you can substitute it for bacon, which will still be super tasty. It is quick to cook, making it great for a hungry family in the van.
