Home AgainSeptember 22, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 59 °F
We have arrived home again after nearly five months of travel. It has been an interesting time. We've been in some widely divergent settings and met an interesting mileau of personalities. Our first stop on coming back to the coast was at Nancy' mother's retirement place in Pacific Grove. She was pleased that she was our first stop, but less than pleased by the souvenir we'd brought her from Holland. (see photo)
Nancy and I spent our last night on the road back in the El Mono motel in Lee Vining. Fun that we began our life of travel there over two years ago. Earlier that day we parked just outside of Yosemite National Park and pulled everything out of the camper, cleaned it top to bottom, and put it all back. I'm sure we got the stink-eye from more than a few people driving as they drove by.
It feels good to be back home. We arrived home to a coffee table full of gifts from our Home Exchange partners. Birgitt left us a painting of our yard that really captures the feeling of the home. Really nice. We won't hesitate to set up an exchange again. It has been a great experience.
So. One trip comes to a close and in two weeks another begins. Augie and I fly to Ho Chi Minh City on the 10th of October. We'll spend a few days there getting used to the time change, visiting a college friend of his, and picking up our motorbikes. A description of our route can be found here:
