classic vw bus


We are Sabri (Chaby) and Manu, from Rafaela, a small town in Argentina. We went on a trip with our VW Bus in April 2016. We went from Argentina to Alaska and then back (a bit driving and the rest by ferry). In total took us the trip about 3 years and we did it aboard our VW Bus, Kombi Latina, from ’81. In July 2019 our first daughter Josefina was born, so we found ourselves eager to modify our little house on wheels to start a new adventure.




Traveling in the VW Bus we discover a new way of life, without so many bonds, without so many restrictions. Beyond that, our first great trip to tour America ended (partly), we brought our daughter into this world and now we want to show this way of life to her. We look forward to the moment to start this new adventure.

What does the BusLife mean to you?

The “BusLife” allows you to grow in the world and not just limited within your city. With its pros and cons it is a lifestyle that opens your mind definitively and you start to see things from a new perspective.

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

The main advantages of a “BusLife” is that you are on the move all the time. Which allows you to discover places, meet people, have thousands of new experiences, do things you never imagined. Besides that you always travel with everything you need, you don’t have to think about hotels, making bags or carrying a lot of luggage, not even where to eat.

Challenges range from the simplest to the most complex. That can be everyday things like getting a shower, until you solve mechanical problems on the road.

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

We can not mention a favorite destination, but we can say that Mexico fascinated us, it is a very diverse country in terms of nature and culture. We were almost 7 months there and we have still many states to go.

Equally all countries have those places that one falls in love with. Like the parks of Banff and Jasper in Canada, the coffee region in Colombia, the national parks in Costa Rica.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

What we like most about our VW Bus is that it works like a great combo. It’s a shelter, it’s home, it’s mobility, it’s a hotel, it’s a restaurant, it’s a workspace, it’s sharing. Definitely thanks to her we were able to make the trip through the Americas.

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

As advice to anyone who wants to make a trip in a VW Bus is, to do it now. The right time will never come, the VW Bus will never be completely finished, you will never finish ‘camperizing’ it. When you leave you realize that the journey is movement and that everything keeps flowing, and that all the “problems” will be solved.
