On this day twelve months ago, I flew to Melbourne to buy our bus. It took me all day and many modes of public transport to reach the small country town of Alexandra where Bronte the bus was waiting for me at the local bus depot. I spent that first night in a caravan park at Seymour, trying to sleep on the back seat of our new bus. It wasn't as comfortable as I thought it might be! Over the next few days, I covered 1800km to get the bus home to Brisbane. It was an epic journey but I was filled with excitement for the dream that we had started. Twelve months later and our house on wheels is nearing completion. It's been a really difficult year and we have worked tirelessly to keep the project moving along whilst juggling long hours at work (Sam) and the stay-at-home parent role (me). There have been many times throughout the year when we have questioned our own sanity for attempting such a project. We long ago exhausted our budget for the project and have lately resorted to credit cards to help us get the bus finished. We're not finished yet and still have some major projects to finance and tackle (including the solar power system) but we're heading in the right direction. We have so far completed all of the work in the bus ourselves and are immensely proud of our achievements! The boys and I celebrated the 12 month anniversary of Bronte the bus by assembling two new kitchen bar stools and having afternoon tea in the bus. Thank you to everyone for following our story over the past twelve months! Your enthusiastic support and encouragement here on @Instagram have helped to keep us motivated. ~ Keiran.
