I’m a 32-year-old Frenchman who’s lived in the US for 6 years now.
I grew up abroad and lived most of my life outside of France, and have traveled to over 60 countries, so traveling wasn’t new to me. I got the VW Bus as a weekend project with no intention to move in it. At the same time, I started getting over with corporate life and 9-5 days that resembled one another. I was fairly successful and making good money, but comfort and a linear career just weren’t making me happier. The opposite actually.
This combined with the VW Bus restoration which I got really into, and the first travels with it (especially the month in Baja California in Mexico last year) made me take the leap to a much less conventional lifestyle, be it temporary.
My life mission is...
What drove me to make such a drastic change to my life is the hope to never look back thinking I could have done things differently. By documenting my travels, I hope to inspire the adventure seeker to get out there and live their dreams, responsibly.
I needed to put myself into a less conventional route to see where this would take me. I was feeling less and less comfortable with the life choices that had brought me to a good position at work, but couldn’t cope with the 9-5 in front of a computer screen, coping with corporate and politics. The main issue I think is this idea that one’s life is a linear evolution that takes you from childhood to student to employee etc, with the core belief that the more your own, the better you are. And work can’t be more important than life. Buslife is more of an authentic evolution for me.
