The Bus "Wander"

Wander amongst the chamomile 

Wander is converted 28ft 2001 GMC Blue Bird. Purchased in June of 2018 for $3,000 with 65,000 miles, Wander was a fully functioning yellow school bus.

Holly completely converted Wander over the course of a year. The whole process came out to about $15,000. Wander functions as Holly's mobile studio and home and is fully outfitted for life off the grid. 

Holly and Wander are currently exploring North America. You can follow along and see our adventures at BusGoblin on Instagram.
