One day we woke up in our loft in Berlin and it didn’t feel right anymore. We’re both self-employed and had just released an album (Selima) and a movie (Felix) so we’ve had a pretty hectic year. Our Bernese Mountain dog puppy had just joined the family and he hated city life.
Looking around online we saw a converted school bus by coincidence. Two days later we bought one ourselves online and booked flights, a month later we boarded the plane to America. Converting was harder than we thought, we both didn’t know what we were doing but figuring it out along the way was awesome.
We learned a lot and are super happy with the outcome – our loft on wheels – as we like to call it because of the airy feel of the design. We faced some challenges both converting and on the road but it was always worth it.
The 200 sqare feet are more than enough for all of our stuff and we love the concept of a simple life that is still comfortable. Limiting yourself space wise is refreshing and you don’t need to compromise on design and comfort if you don’t want to.
After converting we took the bus on a roadtrip. We crossed Canada, drove up to Alaska and now the only direction is south. We’re traveling on the Panamerican Highway through the states and central america. We’ll keep going until we don’t like the road life anymore or the bus breaks down. We don’t have an ultimate destination – the journey is the reward.
