Bus and Van Life After Losing Her Mom

Alex was the last person her friends and family thought would jump into nomadic life since she was never a very outdoorsy type. That said, when her mother passed away from cancer, she wanted to do something different and got a job opportunity with Tiny Home Tours that allowed her to live in one of their buses.

After living in that bus for a while, she had fallen in love with #buslife enough to get her own vehicle! So she purchased a professionally-built van. Her conversion includes a bathroom, a U-shaped dinette that converts into a bed, and a lovely little kitchen. Enjoy the tour below!
