Should we have bought a school bus instead of a van? In this episode, we see what it's like to live in a gorgeous converted "skoolie." Back in March when our lives were flipped upside down, we had no idea what we were going to do this year. We ALMOST bought a converted school bus, so today we're comparing #vanlife to #buslife to see if we made the right decision ;)
The owners of this bus have a CNworld channel where they documented the entire conversion process and their adventures in it, check them out :)

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

  • Nate don’t feel bad because I’m 33 and you just taught me something lol I guess while teaching my 4 yr old I better pay attention even more lmao

  • That looks so cool! I love the little fireplace, too! Speaking of what we were taught in school. Just last night I found out that it’s possible that a lot of us were taught wrong doing math equations as well. I don’t know. I haven’t been able to confirm it yet.

  • Kara and Nate - We use a single induction hot plate that sits on our counter at home. It runs on 110v and can be tucked away in a cabinet when you are down with it. It would work great for your van. We used one in our RV as well.
