The life of “van dwellers” looks intriguing; purchase a tiny home on wheels, trick it out with the bare necessities, and head out for several months up to a few years travelling from city to city, sleeping at Wal-Marts, and experience the life of a modern traveling nomad. I want to do it. Continue reading “Dreaming Of Traveling The US In A Van”
It’s official. My family and I booked a flight to Europe in May. While I haven’t yet hashed out the details of the entire trip, I know that I’ll get to visit Spain before boarding a cruise ship to France, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
