This Couple Bought An Ambulance On eBay To Travel The World In Style

The campervan travel trend is on the rise. Converting a van into a home-on-wheels with amenities like a bed and kitchen and driving away to scenic destinations can be the most full-filled and adventurous journey for every ardent traveller. And a doctor couple from the UK is taking on the trend in the most out-of-the-box way. They bought an ambulance and converted it into a campervan to travel the world in style.

Veterinarians Lawrence Dodi and Rachel Nixon officially aim to enter the Guinness World Record for the longest journey in an ambulance.

They have already travelled to destinations like Cornwall, Jersey, France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Serbia, Montgomery, Turkey, Georgia and other locations.
