Guillermo has lived all over the world. Born in Argentina, he spent a few years in Florida before doing most of his growing up in Spain. As an adult, he moved to the US where he’s lived for 26 years in a number of states including Pennsylvania, Texas, and California. Bus life had always been on his bucket list, but he jumped into it quite rapidly after meeting the woman who renovated this VW bus.
She was looking for more space, and before he knew it, Guillermo was buying it from her! It has awesome murals that she put in, a beautiful coat of turquoise paint, and lovely striped upholstery. Its small size means that he does most of his living outdoors — which is how he likes it!
This is the story of Brett Belan’s DIY Solar-Powered VW EV Bus. He bought an old VW bus and turned it into his very own solar-powered electric vehicle (this is a link to ANOTHER story). Can you imagine having your own electric vehicle that you can charge using the sun wherever you may be? One that… You built/converted into electric yourself? Yup, that’s what Brett did.

After buying it, he got rid of his apartment, quit his job, and has been living in it and focusing on his New Year’s resolution. To do so, he’s decided to only keep his “top 5 favorites” of just about all of his possessions. His wardrobe, for example, is very minimal.
As for work goes, now he’s doing something more in line with his passion since he’s able to afford to make the decision after the drastic downsize. He now works for Hofmann Architecture helping to restore Airstream travel trailers. And Sam’s goal is to upgrade into an Airstream in the near future.
