Family Quits the 9 to 5 to Live & Travel in an Off Grid School Bus Conversion

“This inspiring couple quit their 9-5 jobs to live & travel in a DIY off grid school bus conversion with their two young kids in New Zealand.

Andy, Amber, Jake, and Daisy now travel full-time in their converted skoolie and we have to say, it’s one of the best conversions we’ve seen yet. Especially considering it was a DIY project by two people who had little building and construction experience.

One of the reasons they decided to hit the road as a family was because the 9-5 grind was too stressful, and the cost of living in Auckland was very high. They were paying approximately $3,000 NZD on rent each month. By reducing their expenses and living in a bus, they were able to quit both of their jobs and develop a few small revenue streams to support their lifestyle.”

  1. So it sounds like they’ve been able to cut their expenses by over $2,000 NZD (almost $2,800 US). This has freed them up so they don’t have to work so much. That’s the main reason I keep posting stories like this. It’s so inspiring to see people discovering freedom and having time to do the things they love.
