The universe of Chloé and Gürkan

We met Chloé and Gürkan at the beginning of 2020 during a trip to La Rochelle and immediately loved their warm and graphic universe.

Chloé Ferrari, 26, is a Photographer and Social Media Manager for committed projects. Follower of slow travel and zero waste on a daily basis, she is also passionate about hiking.

Gürkan Yildirim, 30, is a Videographer and Artistic Director. Lover of the ocean as well as the mountains, this Istanbulite loves sliding sports (surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding).

After meeting in Mexico in 2016, they embarked on the entrepreneurial adventure from their van by creating Slow Road Studio, a creative studio member of the 1% For The Planet collective. They share their daily life on the roads on social networks @vanlifegoeson .

And soon the second part of the trip!

Chloé and Gürkan are hitting the road again in May 2021 to explore the second part of France in a converted van.

A second book is in preparation: La France en Van - From the Alps to Normandy.
