We are a British couple that meet in 2014 in Dubai. David was working as a Design Technology teacher and I was working in Oil & Gas recruitment at the time. We spent the last couple of years living and working in Dubai, Antigua and Sri Lanka and also spent some time in Whistler, Vancouver, Hong Kong and New York.
We had a lot of great adventures along the way including getting engaged and Tuk Tuking across Sri Lanka.
However we decided that it was time to try and find somewhere to settle down and start a business together but not before one last big adventure! We have our heart set on finding somewhere in Europe to start a guesthouse eco business, we are ideally looking for somewhere with lots of land that we can use to grow vegetables and keep live stock. We also would like some forestry on the property that David can build treehouses, yurts, and huts and of course bus conversions on.
We decided the best way to find our ideal spot would be to buy a bus and convert it into our home on wheels. We could then travel across Europe to find our ideal location to start our eco venture.
We plan on going to France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and depending on how our money stretches maybe even Romania.
We have a budget of about GBP 12,000 for the bus conversion and a further GBP 5000 for travelling.
This blog with detail the process of converting the bus and our travels across Europe.
