I’m a 32 year old Frenchman who’s lived in the US for 6 years now.

I grew up abroad and lived most of my life outside of France, and have traveled to over 60 countries, so traveling wasn’t new to me. I got the VW Bus as a weekend project with no intention to move in it, but at the same time I started getting over with corporate life and 9-5 days that resembled one another. I was fairly successful and making good money, but comfort and a linear career just weren’t making me happier, the opposite actually. This combined with the VW Bus restoration which I got really into, and the first travels with it (especially the month in Baja California in Mexico last year) made me take the leap to a much less conventional lifestyle, be it temporary. 


What drove me to make such a drastic change to my life is that hope to never look back thinking I could have done things differently. By documenting my travels, I hope to inspire the adventure seeker to get out there and live their dreams, responsibly.  


What does the BusLife mean to you?

I needed to put myself into a less conventional route to see where this would take me. I was feeling less and less comfortable with the life choices that had brought me to a good position at work, but couldn’t cope with the 9-5 in front of a computer screen, coping with corporate and politics. The main issue I think is this idea that one’s life is a linear evolution that takes you from childhood to student to employee etc, with the core belief that the more your own, the better you are. And work can’t be more important than life.


What are the biggest advantages and challenges of living the BusLife?

+ Time; contemplation; constant discoveries; a sense of meaningfulness. 


– Until I’ve figured out a constant stream of income, then I can’t fully live the Buslife without thinking it’ll end soon.

I’ve set up a goal for myself to figure that out in 2020.


Tell us your favourite destination you have travelled to so far?

I can’t answer that question. There are so many amazing places and as many criterias to choose from. Landscapes, colors? Culture, food? Roads, off-road?


What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

Whenever I open that sliding door and step in, I instantly feel at home, like never before.


What advise would you give to anyone starting a travel adventure in a VW Bus?

There is no known way this can turn into a bad decision.
