Cookbook Author & Jewelry Maker’s Bus Conversion


Aj and Ayana were both separately interested in a nomadic lifestyle when they fell in love. It didn’t take long for them to find a bus that they built into a home, complete with a rooftop deck, fixed bed, and hide-away composting toilet.

Aj is a writer and chef, and authored a cookbook about how to cook amazing meals in a tiny bus (or van) kitchen. Ayana works as a dreamwork practitioner and makes beautiful jewelry. They’re still working on finding that perfect balance of travel/adventure and calm/rest. What’s your favorite part of their bus?
