My VW Bus is a fully original ’72 Westfalia that i bought in Italy from a friend of mine. The bus had been produced the 8. October 1972 in Hannover and has been shipped to Italy right after. It still has his original (Italian) license plates, and he has had 2 previous owners. 


I want to experience the beauty of traveling in an old VW Bus and let people understand it’s not always necessary to buy a new car to go on holiday. Having an old van is fascinating and it gives you lots of joy. New cars are boring and full of technologies and other stuff no one really needs. Just keep it simple 🙂


What does the BusLife mean to you?

BusLife is not just a hashtag or a trend, but a way of thinking. BusLifers just see the world with other eyes, and that’s what I really like about it. i honestly don’t really support people buying brand new vans and converting them into homes on wheels. BusLife is more experiencing the life our parents and grandparents used to live knowing the comfort of this whole new world full of technology and progress.


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

Living on a bus lets you understand we are surrounded by stuff we don’t need at all. Living in a tiny space let me think what’s really important to me and what’s not, what I really care about. It also let me understand how beautiful our planet is and how important it is to keep it as clean as possible. i am not an activist but i care about the planet. Traveling helps understand how blessed we are having such a lovely world.

What’s your favourite thing about your VW Bus?

My favorite thing about my VW Bus is the interiors. I really like to sit in there and it’s very useful when I need to study or to work. I take my VW Bus, I drive it somewhere and I study (or work) on the VW Bus, surrounded by nature and avoiding any city-noise we have in Berlin.

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

If you like to travel and have adventurous holidays, you’re doing the right thing. If you prefer to relax on holiday the BusLife isn’t your thing.
