We are Belu and Lucho, from Córdoba, Argentina, traveling in a Brazilian VW Bus from ’96 to Alaska, for 3 years. We called her “White” because as soon as we knew her it was a radiant white color. At this time the VW Bus is in Mexico, in the house of a family and we are in Colombia, because we were visiting Argentina and we were stranded in Bogota (they closed the airports) because of the situation of the coronavirus. We built the interior of the VW Bus with the basics (bed, kitchen and closets) and remodeled it to make it more “living” during the trip. We put a shower on the outside and made it a liftable roof. All ourselves. We travel at 70 kilometers per hour and no more than 200 kilometers per day. We want her to go far and we take care of her as if she were a person, who gets tired of being traveling all day and needs pampering to move.


We started traveling to learn about places, cultures and ways of life other than our own. Then the journey became more inside, to know ourselves. After 3 years of walking and being in touch with so many people we realized that the dream of many people is to do the same, then at this moment we want to share and encourage others to do so. That anything is possible! And it moves us to keep traveling around the world in the VW Bus to wake up and help awaken sleeping dreams.


What does the BusLife mean to you?

It means learning to live well. To live the present, to live in peace, learning to love unconditionally. It means having friends all over the world and feeling accompanied by this odyssey that many consider for “crazy and deviant.” But first of all it means FREEDOM.  

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

It’s a family on the road, in any country in the world. When we bought the VW Bus we would never imagine that thanks to it would open unthinking doors for us. You’re never alone, there are thousands of fans willing to give you a hand. And they’re friends who endure all the way and all their lives. They understand the BusLife and what you need.

The VW Bus attracts attention, it has its history. People come just for the friendly and legendary VW Bus. He helped us at all times to sell what we would like to sell. It also helps spread what you want to carry on 4 wheels.

And the biggest challenge is living in a small space, with few things, but the VW Bus teaches you and showing what you need and what you don’t.

Another challenge is learning to live with uncertainty, but it leads you to be more present. It is not certain that that day you will get where you plan to go because it depends on many factors: if it rains, if everything works normal, if it is done at night, if you find another BusLifer, etc.

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

Pufff many. But the deserts; Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, the Atacama Desert in Chile, and the Tatacoa Desert in Colombia; gave us the greatest sense of FREEDOM, PEACE and HAPPINESS, which we seek in life.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

What I like the most is the raised ceiling, covered in wood. We can stand and expand the home.

We also like the sympathy and excitement that provokes everyone: from the child to the adult. It brings you all a memory worth listening to. We love the love and passion that is generated around the VW Bus. The journey would not be the same in another vehicle.

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

Love her, listen to her, feel her, raise her, treat her well, be patient. It’s all a VW Bus needs to get you around the world.
