Couples who live a, pretty much nomadic life, travelling and staying in a van can tell you so much about how the world should be seen in retrospect to how you’re used to seeing it on a daily basis. It also pretty much sums up how your relationships can be given that you both live every single day of your life in a cramped car.

Living in such a way may actually allow you to fulfill your craziest dreams seeing that you have everything simplified. The stories of these eight couples who traveled the world over in their vans have taught us that you don’t need so much to find happiness.

Hey, Vampire Lovers! Count Dracula’s Castle Is For Sale

Initially, the castle was listed at $66 million, but now the owners are said to be willing to go as low as $13 million to sell the property.

In his 1897 book, Dracula, Irish writer Bram Stoker described the bloodthirsty title character's castle as a structure that "sits on the very edge of a terrific precipice."

The following passage from the novel further describes the castle's surroundings: "A stone falling from the window would fall a thousand feet without touching anything! As far as the eye can reach is a sea of green tree tops, with occasionally a deep rift where there is a chasm. Here and there are silver threads where the rivers wind in deep gorges through the forests."

At night, the castle looks like it's straight out of a horror movie.

Guy Creates Amazing Travel Photos Using His Dinosaur Toys

I’m digging up my old dino toys so I could try this one out!

Imagine our thrill when shows like Dino Riders, Dinosaucers, and eventually Mighty Morphin Power Rangers began hitting TV screens. We were thrilled beyond measure!

Of course, we also collected dinosaur toys. None of us, however, figured out it would be awesome to take photos of these toys during trips.

Enter Jorge Saenz, a photographer from Paraguay who came up with such a brilliant idea....
