AboutThe first pow-chasing hostel
About 6 months ago during our travels in Guatemala, we asked ourselves: ‘What if we would convert an American schoolbus into a mobile pow-chasing hostel and try to make a living out of it?’
At the beginning we just laughed about it, although we secretly wished this dream might turn into reality one day. As the days went by we began to talk more and more about the feasibility of this project and at one point we decided to go for it. ‘Hell yeah! Why not?‘ was our main sentiment about the whole thing.
The original idea was to drive through the Rockies and along the Powder Highway in Canada, but after extensive research we came to the conclusion that Europe was probably the better option for us Europeans, if we really wanted to make this happen.
And so the plan went forward to the point where it is now; traveling towards Florida to buy a bus and ship it to Belgium to convert it this summer. We just finished our brand new website and at the moment we are putting together the right team, spreading the message, contacting sponsors, creating a crowd funding campaign, doing bus conversion research, reading up on import regulations and so much more. Sometimes it feels like it is never-ending and it probably is a bit too much for two people, but we are determined to make this happen. Luckily we have already been contacted by a lot of friends who want to help out somewhere along the process and it is a real blessing to get so much support for our idea. We love you all guys! Seriously, we really do.
If all goes well, we are starting our first winter tour in december 2014 and will bring a smile on the face of everyone who will be a part this.
We hope to see you on the bus!!
