Welcome to Bus Life NZ

We are Andy, Amber, Jake (5) & Daisy (3) and we escaped the rat race by converting a bus into our off grid tiny home on wheels. We travel the islands of New Zealand, exploring the areas we stop at and homeschooling the kids. We make videos of our adventures/life and share them on our Youtube Channel.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and learning a little more about our family and our big adventure!

Please share this with as many people as possible and use the hashtag #findingjeremy so we can see if you can find him! 7 years ago during the Christchurch Earthquake we were trapped in a high rise building that was on a lean and the fire stairs collapsed. We spent 4 hours waiting to either be rescued or be crushed as the building was threatening to collapse in the aftershocks. It was an intense time and we spent what could have been our final moments with a man called Jeremy who we feel a real emotional connection to, unfortunately after we escaped the building we were separated in the confusion and we lost each other, having not swapped details due to not actually thinking we would make it out. Now we want to find him and make a web series about what happened to him.


Name: Jeremy

Age: Mid to late 30's

Nationality: USA

Job: Air Traffic with US Airforce

Date he was in Christchurch, New Zealand: 22 Feb 2011
