Meet Chris, his bus ‘Basil’ and his best pal ‘Richard "Got this bad boy back and decided that bog standard buses are just not as much fun and I wanted to add my own touch… it's got a bit out of hand as I've replaced pretty much EVERYTHING over the last 5 years!! All the while I was doing this I was working in the garage over the road from my house. This old guy would stand on his door step and watch me work, I would always say hello and exchange a smile and have a little chat, the after a few months he started bringing over a cup of tea as it was FUCKING FREEZING. We’d have a fag and chat, it transpired that he’d lost his partner of 36 years. We became friends.
I promised Richard that as soon as the bus was going I would take him on holiday in the bus.I took him to Belgium where we did a booze cruise, then got him a wagon load of fags… We’d go out for dinner, go to bars, then go clubiing! ha ha he was like a local celebrity. I took him to his first ever strip club.. he ended up sucking cream of a strippers tits!!
We are now well tight and he comes with me to all my parties and I tell ya they are FUCKING MENTAL and he’s a trooper, he lets me dress him up ,he’s well up for a splif. He hit my bong once.. it was fucking hilarious! Finally when my bus was complete and road worthy I’d decided to take him to Amsterdam as a surprise for his 78th birthday. We had a right blast. Tried to get him laid but he wasn’t having any of it.I plan to quit my job and hit the road heading for the alps first then go down the coast of Italy all the way down to Istanbul, then up through eastern Europe all the way to Scandinavia if my money allows me to" #roadtrip #volkswagen #vwbus #camping #adventure #vwcamper #vwlove #wanderlust #vanlifediaries #vwvan #explore #lifestyle #photographer #splitscreen #camperlife #outdoorlife #vwlife #photoshoot #summer #travelblog #behindthescenes #instagood #bus #type2 #instadaily
