“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

– Mae West

Dream big. Live small.

Kia ora! We are Karma and Scott. We are minimalistic nomadic explorers based in New Zealand. Freedom is a deeply rooted core value that we both share, and one reason we choose to live the way we do. We feel most alive when we are out hiking some remote trail, missioning up a crazy riverbed, or climbing mountains in search of sunrises. We believe in collecting experiences—not things. It is what truly makes us happy.

Off-grid house bus conversion NZ

Our new project

We have spent the past few years traveling and hiking across the world. Since this kind of nomadic lifestyle isn’t possible during a global pandemic, we are starting a new adventure a bit closer to home. Over the next few months, we will turn an old passenger bus into a tiny off-grid home. Since we don’t want to put down roots just yet, building our home on wheels will satisfy our passion for freedom and adventure. We are doing the conversion ourselves and plan to upcycle and recycle as much as possible for the build. Follow the transformation here!
