Let's Be Nomads started as a humble Indiegogo campaign to turn a school bus into a powder-chasing, wave-searching hostel on wheels. Val Cook and Tim Boffe, the Nomads, purchased the bus in Tennessee, then raised the funds to ship the Nomad Bus over to Belgium. After sweating it out and converting it into a fully functional hostel, the Nomads now rent rooms in the vehicle as they tour Europe in search of snow and surf. You can even sign up for snowboarding lessons with them.
