Single Mom’s Bus Life after an Empty Nest


This post contains affiliate links.

Jamie lost her husband 17 years ago and raised her daughters on her own. About six years of that time they spent on a homestead with horses and dairy goats! But when her youngest got engaged, she decided it was time to do something for herself and see the country.

While she tried to work remotely when she first hit the road, she felt like it was taking away from her really enjoying her travels, so she’s been living off the sale of her home for now. She has plans to travel across Canada next and end up in Alaska where one of her daughters lives now.
