Felix Starck, a filmmaker and Selima Taibi, a musician embarked on the project together which they named, “Expedition Happiness.” There were trials and errors but the couple is happy with their finished home on wheels. Their goal is to drive to Canada, making their way down to South America. The school bus is the perfect vehicle for an epic adventure.
The interior walls were fitted with wooden panels to give a rustic, loft look.
Storage space were built for tools, camera equipment, and Starck’s guitar.
Starck says the kitchen in the bus is actually bigger than the one they had in their apartment in Berlin.
The table can be folded up for extra space.
The bus has a fan for warmer days and GPS. It is also Bluetooth enabled.
The bed is big enough to fit Starck, Taibi, and their dog Rudi.
They have installed a 32-inch TV in the bedroom. The drawers at the top have clothes, shoes, and an electrical outlet to charge their mobiles.
Although the chairs are not glued or nailed down to the floor, surprisingly, they do not move around when the bus is in motion.
Because the bus is 40 feet long, a backup camera was installed to avoid hitting people, cars or structures.
A stove, freezer, toaster, and blender are among the things in plain sight or in storage.
There is not a lot of room in the bathroom which was ok for the couple.
For the shower they wanted to have open space. The pair call it the “caravan shower.”
