Life in a van on wheels is a new trend in Europe and America, gaining increasing popularity. For this American family, such a life has become a new life experience and perhaps the only thing that could save their family from falling apart.
The situation started to heat up within the family about four years ago. Life circumstances developed in such a way that Jessica Rucha, Adam Serra’s wife, had to take care of the children without leaving the house.
The burden of providing for the family fell entirely on Adam’s shoulders. He was exhausted, but there was no opportunity to rest at home. This led him to seek a solution to his alcohol problems, which brought the family to the brink of divorce.
Then he came across the story of a couple who managed to travel to different neighboring countries with their van. Inspired by the idea of a life on wheels, he discussed it with his wife, and she also liked it, but implementing it turned out to be challenging, especially considering the comfort of the children.
To fully equip their lives and cater to everyone’s needs, in 2018, the couple bought a used school bus. After a long and thorough modification with their own hands, they transformed it into a real mobile home.
Now, the odometer of their home has already covered thousands of kilometers shared with the family. The children, Adam and Jessica, have seen many beautiful places in the United States with their own eyes.
Over time, the Adam family has traveled to more than one city in the States, stopping at the most beautiful locations. The children have grown up and are now taking online lessons, so the family does not need to settle in one place. The children are growing up, full of life impressions.
The couple also had another child, and Adam has forgotten what drinking was like. Living this way has proven to be much more economical because many utility bills and rents are eliminated. There are no significant expenses associated with permanent residence in one place.
