It all started with a fleeting though. “Let’s go to the US this summer holiday,” said my wife on day in late April.
For us, as teachers, summer holiday means June and July. We had only one month to apply for a visa, books tickets, and make all the travelling arrangements. I said, “Sounds like a good idea.”
About two weeks later we were given a 10-year B1-B2 visa at the US Embassy in Bangkok and so the adventure started. For 51 days we drove to national parks in California, flew to New York, took buses to Arizona, and went camping.
Everywhere we went we saw people living the “RV lifestyle” and we remained pleasantly impressed by both their freedom to roam around the country and the high-tech recreational vehicles that could be big enough to house a family of six.
On the way back to Bangkok, we though, “Wouldn’t it be nice to return next year for a trip around the States in an RV?” The bug is planted.
