THE MAGIC BUS part deux

american hippie busI received several positive emails about the first Hippie Bus Post and thought it would be fun to do a sort of follow up post. I yet but once I do, I plan on tricking out the inside with old-school hippie style decorations and oversized gypsy pillows! I imagine driving along the coast with the windows open on a cool spring morning. Maybe pulling over onto a remote beach to lounge in the back while watching the sunrise.

How ’bout you guys? Any fantasy road trips you’d like to take? Or maybe a story about somewhere you’ve already been……

What I did find made me laugh though, and reminded me that whether you’re 17 or 70, sometimes you just need forget what people might think, and LET YOUR FREAK FLAG FLY!!!

i really dig these – reminds me of my teenage years. we clomped all across america for months in a big painted bus – bit biofuel powered for a modern twist 😀

Love your blog! I’m almost 50 – and on my 50th, I’m magic-bussing across the country! Got to get the magic bus first though!

Those are amazing! Actually I would love to have one just in case on my patio

I love the one with the Dead bears on it. It’s funny because at the dead show two weeks ago I went with my boyfriend who has never really gone to a hippie show and I found him outside a huge hippie bus and I was like ok come with me and he was like, ‘why?’ and I was like, ‘because this is what happens at hippie shows. that guy that you were talking to is a part of a cult that goes to these shows to get people on the bus and join’ random story.

Darlin’ I so wish I had a magic gypsy bus in my backyard! lol-xxx

This is beyond awesome, and it’s probably impossible to pick my favorite image. All I know is that if I cross paths with one, I’d happily put the miles on it.


Your fantasy bus posts are so wonderful, Cara Mia! I love all these pics, especially the one in the middle with the girl in the red dress perched on the International bus! You are making me want to take a road trip down the East coast!

Have a fab weekend, darling!


I love to ride in a Hippie Bus especially over the summer. Be like the ultimate adventure!!
The video of the guy is dancing is so cool. Just dancing and being in flow with himself.
Have a beautiful friday, CaraMia.
