We are Federico, Debra and Filandia, we traveled in our VW Bus (la camiona) of 1989 and started almost 3 years ago.


We travel to always know a little more about cultures, people, meals, history of places and stories told by the local people. We traveled to feel a little freer.


What does the BusLife mean to you?

Living traveling for us started out with a goal, the goal of getting to a place. On the trip we mutated that idea. BusLife is a way of life that we adopted at the time we decided to get out of the maelstrom that consumes us normally but that we really understood after having lived a lot of very special experiences on the route. The route is magic and it’s not just a hippie phrase from the lot😉

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

The greatest advantages we believe in living this kind of life is independence. Being able to choose whether or not to be in the place you are. To be able to stop in the middle of the route to rest, make your food in your kitchen and continue on the way. The biggest challenges we face on a daily basis are the 24/7 coexistence, the economic aspects that sometimes hold us longer in certain places, and the mechanical breakdowns that the vehicle may present.

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

We believe that Colombia has been our favorite destination so far. People are the most open we’ve crossed paths with, often having one or more people a day talking about our journey and our way of life non-stop and really interested in the way we live. We feel very protected at all times by all and the generosity they possess seems to have no limit. They also have a country of extraordinary geography wherever you look at it, all places have an attraction that you can explore and enjoy.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

We really like the community/family generated around these vehicles. We say family because you really feel that way when you have a vehicle of these. The VW Bus is a magnet for young people and boys, and everyone gets a smile when they see it circulating, or talk if they see two or three at the same time. To all this add the mechanical simplicity that it has and the amount of spare parts that it has, make it ideal for this type of crossings.

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

We believe that the most complicated part before starting the adventure is to overcome that fear that instills in all of us from a young age, the fear of leaving the comfort zone. Living traveling is as simple as you propose it. You have difficult moments (like everything in life) but we promise that the cute moments will be worth it, those memories are the only thing that we will take with us.
