Where is this place called Vanywhere? It can't be found on any map. No road sign points the way. It is our land of milk and honey, except that we don't drink milk and we don't eat honey.
Vanywhere is a metaphorical destination, a potentiality. If all goes well it will be a space and time for discovery, creativity, curiosity, learning and sharing. It can be anywhere really, but always in our van. Our van James.
On this page we share the behind the scenes stories of On the Road and In the Belly, Thysa's cutouts and illustrations, but also pictures of our journey and tips and discoveries from the road.
Thysa creates highly intricate paper cutouts with an x-acto knife and her endless imagination. It all started with birds, but she has broadend her scope with assignments for logo's, birth and wedding announcements and she is about to have her first children's book published in the Netherlands. You can read more about it on her designated website here.

Last reported sighting
We are staying in the Netherlands for the winter. Thysa's book will be published mid March, so we are spending the winter in our homeland until then.
In the spring we will be making our way down south for the next part of our culinary journey while Thysa gets working on her second book.
