About Eleanor

My name is Eleanor Isdale and I'm from sunny Brisbane, Australia.

I'm a freelance tourism, events, commercial and lifestyle photographer exploring North America.  I'm currently based in Nova Scotia, Canada.

After finishing five years of university in Australia, I decided it was time for me to get out and focus on some hobbies I've always loved but previously never seen as feasible pursuits:  photography and writing.  I'm now basking in all the time I now have to focus on my creative side with much zeal and dedication.

The Van Blog is about my awkward and humbling learning experiences while travelling across Canada.  I stumbled upon a $1,000 van on Craigslist, fell in love with the hula on the dash and built a bed in the back to take me across the prairies.
