For the third week in a row now, have I seen the white school bus sitting next to the freeway. Each time I have been either on my way to work, or I spotted too late coming back from work. Big white numbers are painted on the windows, the sellers phone number and my curiosity is peaked. Later on today, I will look for the bus on my way to work and I will stop.
I just recently wrote about all the “Stuff” (material things) that seems to tie me down. The things I feel I have to let go and course it’s more then that, but it is a major part. I’m fascinated by watching the TV show “Tiny Homes” and somehow I feel a calling that this kind of lifestyle could nourish my vagabonding spirit. My life continuous to change as I evolve, ready to make a major change that would ultimately result in a much tinier home.
The school bus vision came into the picture as a random video flashed during a YouTube recommendation. The thought of this subject is rather young, but just like the “Tiny Homes” show, I’m now obsessed watching video’s, learning what it would entail to convert a bus and saving pins on Pinterest for inspiration. Just in case. I am a dreamer, and dreams do come true. The timing is off right now as other things need to be handled and taken care of, but one can always imagine and dream, right? It is where reality manifests, as all has to begin somewhere and starts with a dream. I find it amazing to think of how many school buses have crossed my path since the first thought of it was born. They show up in numbers, more than one, in the parking lot at my work, which has never happened before, they line up next to the freeway, for sale or stored, waiting for an interested buyer, they appear in videos and probably in my dreams. What I love about it, is that a school bus would be home and transportation combined. This could cut additional expenses and allow more freedom. Freedom is what it seems to be all about these days for me and one of the biggest bonuses would be the freedom to travel and take your home on the road.
Shortly after the idea originated, I stumbled across another video to spark my imagination. “Expedition Happiness” entails a German couple who embraced the school bus life. Buying and converting their school bus, they travel from Alaska to Mexico and it looks their adventure hit the silver screen in Germany. You can subscribe to their You Tube channel to watch various videos of the process and how amazing is this? The adventure bug has bitten me good this time and I see many changes coming me way.
Most likely it will include going tiny in a huge way 🙂
