We did it! We built a mobile school bus home in 2 months and it’s livable and unbelievably amazing! And I’m so happy to be coming home to Brookline for the next few months before our next cross-country adventure begins.
We are out of the woods and into the bus! Not only were we able to finish the build in the two months that we had, but we have also been able to live in it finally too. This is so exciting to us because this is a major goal!
We have also secured a new apartment in the area with a safe spot to park our baby right in viewing distance from our new porch! Very excited to be home and onto the next adventures, some of witch are more mechanic work on Fernweh(the name we chose for the bus) and maybe a new color.
We named our bus Fernweh for this reason, the word fernweh is a combination of the words fern, meaning distance, and wehe, meaning an ache, misery or sickness. It translates to ‘far woe’ or an ache to explore far-flung places. It’s the opposite of heimweh (homesickness). Now for a picture dump :
