Liputan6.com, Jakarta Tamra dan JT Lane (28), dari Point, Texas, Amerika Serikat, bertemu saat masih SMA dan telah menikah selama 8 tahun. Mereka pernah tinggal di 3 apartmen dan dua rumah sebelum menyulap bus Blue Bird TC2000 tua menjadi tempat tinggal dan pergi traveling keliling dunia bersama.

Pasangan ini tinggal di bus tersebut setelah 6 bulan melakukan perbaikan dan diperkirakan telah menghabiskan biaya 20.000 dolar AS atau sekitar Rp 280 juta. Tamra dan JT bersama anak laki-laki dan dua anjing mereka, akhirnya membuat keputusan untuk berkemas dan memilih untuk tinggal di dalam bus sambil melakukan perjalanan traveling keliling dunia.

“Salah satu dari banyak hal yang mendorong perubahan gaya hidup kami menjadi kehidupan yang lebih sederhana adalah setelah menyadari kami terjebak dalam hidup yang monoton dan hanya untuk bekerja,” ungkap Tamara.

Sempat Menjual Rumah

 

2017. Wow. What a whirlwind right? We cannot believe another year has come and gone already. What an adventure it has been. We can honestly say this year has brought our family so much happiness. We were able to spend an amazing six months at a beautiful property in ColoRADo where we grew closer, had many new experiences, and met several new friends that will forever be near and dear to our hearts. We did four tiny house shows with our bus and spread the tiny love and hopefully inspired some people. Through that venture we met many amazing people that we can now call friends and even family. Tamra opened a small business that is still just getting started, but that has already been such a blessing. Most importantly though we were able to slow down and breathe. We were able to enjoy the sunsets, bonfires and hikes during the week, cook and eat dinner as a family, play and laugh, and even just sit in silence together. We were able to just enjoy life and each other. Who knows what 2018 has in-store, but I hope it's a lot more of all of that. 💖🎆

Tepat sebelum membeli bus, pasangan ini sempat menjual rumah mereka yang berada di pinggiran kota Texas Utara dan membeli sebuah rumah di negara bagian Texas Timur seluas dua setengah hektar. Namun setelah menetap di rumah baru dan melakukan perubahan demi perubahan, Tamra dan JT tetap merasa kehidupan mereka membosankan dan ingin sesuatu yang berbeda.

“Suatu hari, JT pulang ke rumah selepas bekerja dan mengatakan, Kita harus menjual semuanya, tinggal di dalam bus dan pergi traveling. Jt benar-benar meyakinkan saya pada saat itu,” ungkap Tamara.

Telah Menempuh Jarak 10.000 Mil

 

Hi all! I wanted to take a second to introduce ourselves and tell you a little bit about us and our life! JT is the man of our home, but our one year old Kalon tries to give him a run for that title! JT works from home doing auto insurance estimate auditing. He enjoys all outdoor activities and things that get the adrenaline pumping, especially snowboarding. He also enjoys building things and anything with a motor. I, Tamra, operate a small business from home while talking care of my boys! I enjoy outdoor activities, painting, sewing, and crafting of all kinds. Kalon is a natural born mountain man, he loves being outdoors, getting dirty, and climbing things. Over two years ago through lots of self reflection we decided we wanted to do right by the Earth in many ways. One of those was building our own tiny home inside of an upcycled school bus and simplifying our lives. We sometimes take our home around to tiny house shows to educate others on our alternative lifestyle and to promote going tiny! Another was starting an upcycling business @meraki_co_upcycled which is ran from the bus! We want to say thank you for your support and your social company! We love being apart of this community and love getting to know all the unique souls that are involved in this movement! 😊📷: @mandyleaphoto
