While reading tourism and world tourism news, changes due to economic troubles and another field within tourism and travel sector is in effect. Many people and families around the globe have been saving their wages and giving their resignations to go on world tours, live in suburbs or remote islands to get new life experiences.
Film producer, Felix Storch and musician, Selima Taibi and their dog, Rudy fall into that category of people. They pursued an idea probably only a few people came up with so far and went on their way, moved from Berlin to travel. The couple were together for 3 years and they lived in an apartment in Berlin when they decided in order to run away from the rigors of the city to obtain a new experience, they had to get out. They contemplated about living freely somewhere else or continuously traveling when they were living in Berlin also because of a problem.
Felix couldn’t use the stairs due to a health problem in the hip and Selima had to carry him every day to the 3rd floor. As a result of their research, they found an old school bus for sale on the internet and jumped on the plane to go and buy it for 7,000 sterling. Meanwhile on the other side of the world the bus waiting for them was never seen before by them.
They literally took a risk and once they arrived, they concluded they were not both construction experts so they had to learn to remodel it and it took them 12 weeks to accomplish it. At first they were not sure what they were doing but in February of this year they started learning the foundation and now they have a fully functioning bus with a kitchen, a queen-size bed, a flat TV screen with Netflix and a bathroom.
The couple started traveling from Alaska and from there, they started traveling to south and gradually reached to Vancouver, Canada. Their aim is to go to Panama and if you wonder if the bus is big enough for them to live, the 20 year old bus has run 120,000 miles back in the days and has a 72 passenger capacity.
Meanwhile Felix is a person who tries different paths when it comes to travel and in 2013 travelled around the world on his bike and reached 17000 kilometers starting from Germany, finally reaching all the way to America.
In fact he recorded a documentary for his experience and when it hit Berlin pretty big, the couple decided to go from Berlin to a new adventure and result is of the world’s most beautiful and interesting travel stories.
