Chapter 9. – The Finger Lakes, NY – September/ October 2019

Originally, our plan was to head for the Catskills, but we couldn’t find anything that suited our desire to be close to the water and fit our budget at the same time. And as providence intervened, we ended up renting this lovely little lake house on Seneca Lake in t Finger Lakes. The lake house… Continue reading Chapter 9. – The Finger Lakes, NY – September/ October 2019

Chapter 8. – London, Ontario – September 2019

The first thing we did upon arriving in London, Ontario was to find a Volvo dealership to check our car. And lucky that we did, because the technician found out that our rear brakes were shot.  They didn’t let us leave and took our car without an appointment since it was a serious issue. After… Continue reading Chapter 8. – London, Ontario – September 2019

Chapter 7. – ACROSS CANADA – Aug/Sept 2019

Our month in Edmonton came to an end and ahead of us lay 2,100 miles (or 3379 kilometers) of roads from Edmonton to London, Ontario. We decided to stay in Canada, instead of going back and forth across the U.S. and Canadian borders. We kept on following Highway 1 all the way across. Dana drove… Continue reading Chapter 7. – ACROSS CANADA – Aug/Sept 2019

EDMONTON

Edmonton is an interesting city, full of quirks and juxtapositions. We spent a whole month in and around this eclectic town, driving over 800 miles in this northern region of Alberta. The City of Edmonton Edmonton is full of opposites – on one side we saw a lot of homeless people, poverty, decrepit neighborhoods, and… Continue reading EDMONTON

Chapter 4. – Banff NP – July 2019

Salmon Arms One of the loveliest places we visited in Canada. The food was good, the movie theater inexpensive, and the stay way too short.

Chapter 3. – CANADA, Kelowna – June 2019

Off we went to our next destination - Canada. The Canadian border was an interesting experience to say the least. The border police asked us a few questions and off we went to the border control.

    Our very dear friends live in Washington State. We try to see them every time we travel to the mainland, we spend our holidays with them, and we go on vacation trips with them.

Chapter 1. OREGON – May 2019

We arrived in Portland, Oregon in May. At this time, we didn’t think about RV or RV-ing at all. We simply figured to travel with our car and spend our time between AirBnB homes and extended stay hotels with our Bonvoy and Choice Hotels memberships. We did make plans for the summer, which we wanted… Continue reading Chapter 1. OREGON – May 2019
