I've been thinking lately about buying a big LEGO set to build. I wonder if doing these giant LEGO sets will make me more patient and slow to do things. Here's hoping...
Anyway, here's a list of big LEGO sets I would like to build (in no particular order).
WHY OH WHY IS THIS LEGO SET SO EXPENSIVE? :( This is the LEGO Volkswagen T1 Camper Van.
Another one in the LEGO Maersk line is this train set. Looks cool. Plus it's a train, and I like trains, so why not?
The Atlantic tracks down photographer Foster Huntington to find out the story of how he has turned the hashtag #vanlife into a worldwide phenomenon depicting travel and adventure (often in a Volkswagen Vanagon or similar).
In this video, Foster and a couple of other travelers in VW Vanagons talk about how the van and the internet have brought about an entirely new community of outdoor enthusiasts willing to get out of the office and spend some time with family and friends. It harkens back to a simpler time unplugged from the internet -- while at the same time keeping the internet abreast on all the happenings via the #vanlife hashtag. I love this video. :)
