We are Pablo and Elisa and in November 2018 we left everything to start the journey of our lives. We had always dreamed of something like this, but as many sometimes fears wouldn’t let us see that it was possible. However how you can see we faced it and made the best decision we could make. We sent our VW Bus, called Hojalata, from Europe to South America and that’s where it all began. Hojalata is a 93-year-old VW Bus T4, when she was young, she was a passenger transporter. But when she came to our hands a few years ago, we transformed her into a mobile home.


Basically to enjoy every moment, we believe that every person should pursue his dreams whatever they are and he is ours right now is to travel. Traveling we enrich ourselves from other cultures, we adapt to different situations, we go out of our comfort zone. The route has given us many things that otherwise we wouldn’t have received.


What does the BusLife mean to you?

Freedom and friends. Traveling with our VW Bus we feel very free, free of deciding where we want to be every day, but one of the things we like the most is the great community behind it, always willing to help, to share advice experiences.

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

For us the greatest advantage of living a BusLife is – as we have already said – the freedom. Waking up in different places, having a house with the comforts that one wants but can move it back and forth. We think that’s priceless.

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

Choosing a single destination is something that costs us a lot. Every place of the trip has contributed something, but if we talk about BusLife, we miss Patagonia Argentina for their wild nature. If we can choose we always prefer to spend the nights surrounded by nature, and there it was so easy that we would return without hesitation.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

What we love most about our VW Bus is that it’s a car that takes everything and despite being over 30 years old, it’s still working. Also that it is a recognized car all over the world, it generates sympathy and curiosity when people see it parked or when other cars cross you on the road. And as if that weren’t enough, you will find mechanics and spare parts in almost every country, at least those in America.

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

The advice we would give to someone who starts an adventure in VW Bus is to enjoy the moment without thinking about the future, learn to make few plans and break them because that way things came that we didn’t expect.
