We are a family of four that have left the rat race to pursue a life of adventure with our 2 kids and dog. A life that doesn’t suit all but for the ones who find the freedom in travel it is a magical life!

A lot has happened since we first hit the road in October 2015. It has been a life full of adventure, opportunity, connecting, learning and so much more. It has been a life beyond what we imagined and one we would recommend especially for children.

The thing is life took on some big changes recently. On the 18th of August 2018 Philip had a major heart attack called “The Widow Maker” after finding he had a 99% blockage in his main artery. This was followed a few days latter by a stroke.

Feeling quite devastated that we may need to give up this life after Philip loosing his Heavy Transport licence, Cindy suggested getting a smaller bus that can be driven on a car licence. So we now own a 1972 Vintage Bedford VAS that we are currently doing up. You can view the progress on YouTube

So here it is, our new smaller bus that we will be continuing our travels and adventures throughout this beautiful country of ours Aoteroa, New Zealand.

So please come and join us on our adventures. You can follow us on Facebook @ The Bus – Life is a Journey And if you ever see us on the road, be sure to come say hi. We have rubbish coffee but if you’re brave enough to have a cup we will certain make you one.

Remember…Life is a Journey!
