Solo Mum and Son Adventure Van Life


Shoshannah and her son have been traveling around New Zealand in their bus conversion for about a year now, enjoying the chance to see the country and make all kinds of memories together!

She purchased a Mazda Parkway Bus already converted and has made it work for her family. There’s a toy corner, a little swing, a car seat up near the driver’s seat and her son has an awesome elevator bunk bed on pulleys! What do you think?
