Meet Brenda :)
Brenda is a vintage 1992 International School Bus. She is a classic, beautiful bus with a reliable, strong engine.
We have lived in her for a year now and sadly have to return to the UK. Brenda has been renovated by a fully qualified carpenter (my partner Jack) and myself over the last year. This bus provides a comfortable alternative living and a means for endless adventure in this incredible country!
