From High Maintenance to Minimalism: Short Bus Life


Alex, like so many others, was getting cabin fever during COVID. Suddenly her remote work stuck at home seemed more and more unfulfilling — but she wasn’t ready to make a major life change yet. As a self-proclaimed “high maintenance” person, she said she was the last person anyone in her life expected to choose a nomadic life without a shower.

But then her mom passed away from breast cancer, which acted as a catalyst that pushed her out of her comfort zone and toward short bus life. She has realized in her months on the road that she needs so much less than she ever imagined she did — with three favorite outfits, a handful of hats, and her sweet puppy named Arlo. Enjoy her tour!
