Progress reports on the creation of a dream hostel on wheels

The Lamzac week

It is 9pm, Val and Fenna are already in bed and Lewis is lying next to me on the couch in our living room. The bus is empty. He is exhausted and happily snoring. I totally get how he feels and I know I am also having some signs of withdrawal after this intense, but...

Life on the road

In a couple of days we’ll be on the road for almost a month. Time really does fly by. I was pretty sure we would be able to fill our bus every week with happy guests the moment we started driving and unfortunately it hasn’t been like that, but on the other hand it has...

After the dust has settled

Two years, it took us two years… The drive from Belgium to the Alps was super exciting and kind of scary for me, because I had only driven Jumbo George through the flatlands of Belgium and Holland and hadn’t been able to test his uphill riding skills just yet and who...

The waiting game

This morning I opened my Facebook account and as almost every day this past month I have to look at a picture or video of a friend riding powder. I guess this means they are all quite fortunate and/or have worked hard enough to get them into a place in life where they...

Winter is coming

Time for an update. At the moment we are still standing on the parking lot of the workshop in Hoogerheide, well actually not only standing, but also living there in our Nomads Bus. I must say it feels like home more than ever, the inside is super cosy and we have...

It happened again

Yes it did! I almost can’t believe it is true, but it is, this is the so-mani-eth time we have found the right place at the right time.   I am sitting in the front part of our bus, while Valerie is enjoying some ‘alone’ time with happy Fenna in our bedroom and...

A bump in the road

A couple of days ago the phone rang and I was too busy to notice that Val’s mood had changed completely after she had hung up. ‘What is wrong?’ I asked after I realised that my girl was moping and looking sort of depressed at the other side of our little three by...

Great things take time

'I think you should come have a look on Saturday.' He said on the phone a few days ago. Apparently, the friendly round faced mechanic who has been working underneath the bus for a couple of days now, kept bumping into more rust than he had expected. So, he needed our...

When will you start?

This is a question we hear at least once a day: "When are you going to take off and start your first trip?' It is a fair and obvious question and we love to hear it, because it gives us a sort of confirmation that we are doing something right in terms of fulfilling a...

Gratefulness

It has almost been a year since the first sparks of our mobile hostel idea lit up and never would I have imagined to be sitting on a leather sofa of a very nice and warm clubhouse somewhere close to Antwerp writing this update. Yes, thanks to yet another beautiful...
