They Converted A School Bus Into A Home, Now They're On An Epic Adventure
December 6, 2017
Enjoying the adventure of a lifetime, a couple converted an old school bus into a luxury home and traveled across the county.
Making their way from Alaska with the destination of Argentina on their minds, Felix Starck and Selima Taibi (Mogli) along with their Bernese Mountain Dog, Rudi have been documenting their epic adventure.
Originally from Germany, the couple used to share a third-floor apartment in Berlin. They adopted their dog Rudi, but soon discovered that because of his breed he was at a risk of hip dislocation and the apartment wasn't suitable for their family any longer.
Unable to find a suitable new apartment, Felix who is a film maker, and Mogli a songwriter, decided to take to the road.
The couple bought an old school bus for their trip and started to convert it in a project they called "Expedition Happiness."
Felix was no stranger to the open road, having traveled 11,185 miles across 22 countries on his bicycle in June 2013, he made a documentary called "Pedal the World."
The couple bought a yellow school bus for $7,500 in Florida.
That's when they packed up their lives in Europe and flew to the States to begin their 3-month process of converting the bus into a loft-style home on wheels.
"We were gonna build a tiny home on wheels and travel through North America. Only 4 weeks later we were on the plane to the states with a lot of camera equipment to document everything," Selima wrote.
And the results are amazing!
