In August 2018, after being a key player in a successful acquisition of a tiny start-up to a big company, I felt lost. My partner and I toyed around with what to do: continue working at the start-up-turned-slow-moving-corporate-show or throw ourselves into something new.
And throw ourselves into something new is exactly what we did; we jumped into an RV along with all the worldly possessions we could fit. By November, we were living in a van down by the river with our dog.
I knew I loved big cities. Always have, always will. And I love the serenity that comes with knowing your neighbors are a mile away in country life. What I did not know is that I would fall in love with all the tiny towns in between - all those places you fly over when you’re going to a big city. All those places that you miss unless you deliberately drive by them. I fell in love with Americana and the small-town life, and now? Now I share my travels with you, often reflecting on how my personal life has shaped how I perceive my travels.
Road trips: they sure show you a different reality of life than you’re used to. And if you want that little snippet to escape to a different place for a couple of minutes, then buckle up. We’re going places. I can’t wait to take you on my travels.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Each of my short travel stories will end up happily in your inbox every Monday.
Is there something you’re curious about regarding full time travel, overall RV life, or any other travel-writing questions I can help answer? Let me know!
