Bus Bliss

My brother Matt and his girlfriend Marcia are off on their grand bus adventure!

For the past few months, they have been converting an old bus into a new home on wheels for them to take to explore over the next couple of months.

They stripped out the seats to start with a blank space. Now, their bus has a kitchen, bed, cabinets/storage space, table/lounge area, and a place to store their dirt bikes. Oh, and you can’t forget Duchess’ bed too!

When I was home a few weeks ago, I got to see the progress on the bus and was shocked with how innovative and clever each design decision was! The way that they were able to sneak in extra storage while still keeping it roomy and livable makes me think they should go into building tiny homes. I don’t know that they would go for that though. πŸ˜‰

If you are on Instagram, you need to follow their account “busbliss” to keep up with all of their travels and adventures. Hopefully they’ll add more finished pictures of the bus on it soon too! (Marcia even sewed curtains and pillows to make it nice and homey!)

Matt is a great photographer so I can’t wait to see the beautiful spots that they find! And let’s be honest, Duchess is going along for the ride too and she’s just the cutest ever. I’m sure she’s bound to sneak into a few shots. πŸ™‚

Here’s one of my favorites that Matt has taken of Duchess around the farm.

From what I know, they plan on driving it up to the Pacific Northwest and through Canada (where Marcia is from) and stopping everywhere in between too. They are both nature lovers and love getting out to explore new spots, whether through driving, hiking, or riding their dirt bikes.

They went on a shorter trip last year (onlyΒ about a month πŸ˜‰ ) and here was one of the pictures I was sent.


They slept in hammocks, including the one you see above. Should be a little comfier this time with an actual bed; that’s my way to camp! However, the shower situation (AKA finding lakes) is something I’ll leave for them. No thanks!

Safe travels, you two! I can’t wait to hear the stories!

Question of the Day:Β If you could pick one unique place to travel toΒ right now (forget logistics), where would it be?
