Marie and Ben met while backpacking in Costa Rica, and somewhere along the way fell in love, Ben says. After living with the bare minimum for months on end during their adventures, renovating an old school bus and living tiny didn’t seem so far-fetched.

So now they’re the proud owners of Gus (@littlegusthebus), their teal and white renovated school bus that currently lives on a large farm property in Canada. The couple is taking a leap of faith trying to launch a wood-working business from the workshop/barn on the property.

The interior of this traveling home is coated in cream and dark wood and features the most adorable tiny wood-burning stove. While the couple is having a tough time sans-shower during COVID-19 (the gyms are all closed!), they are making the most of this quiet time. Check out the pictures of their bus below, and read our interview with the couple after the pictures.

Wood-working Couple’s Bus Life in Canada

Meet Adam and Rachel. This amazing couple gave up their $1800/month mortgage to downsize into their renovated bus. The couple DIYed the entire thing!

Perhaps the most unique thing about their life on the road? They’re traveling with 5 animals! One dog, two bunnies and two cats — all of whom they rescued. How do they afford to travel? Each of them has a remote job: Rachel is an anti-captivity activist for marine mammals, and Adam has a referral and consultant business in the AV world.

During quarantine, they’ve moved their bus back “home” to Washington and are staying on family land, but there are more adventures ahead for them. Read our Q&A with Rachel and Adam (@soulfulbuslife) at the end of the post, and enjoy the video tour of their bus too!
