WELCOME

TO THE BEST TRAVEL BLOG IN AMERICA!

In the summer of 2017 we took off in an RV from our home in Key West to cross America, taking our four cats along for the ride.

As new US citizens, we wanted to get out there, to see as many new places as possible and meet our new countryfolk. With no plan, just limitless curiosity and enthusiasm, we just keep on rolling. At every junction, we can choose to go left, right or straight on. But never back.

This is a light-hearted record of our trip. We hope that you will enjoy some of the insights as we poke and probe the stubborn little corners of this great country. From the extraordinary Maine Coast to the crazy world of Salton Sea in California to whale watching in the Puget Sound near Seattle. Thank you for joining us.
