It’s funny. I have been going through life thinking there is only one way to live. Technology in our generation challenges us to think differently and that is what I am learning through this journey to Travel America.
This was a journey, funny to think that just buying the RV was a journey. But it was. Of course, there were so many emotions around the purchase, but the most difficult step was to embrace the unknown.
It was the first city I wish we had more time to explore but we had three goals in Philadelphia, see Independence Hall, The Franklin Museum and leave with enough time to get to Washington, DC and continue driving south toward Auburn, AL. We accomplished all of those things, saw the Liberty Bell and the kids earned another Junior Ranger Badge.
Boston, the heart of a revolution. When planning our trip, this was one of the important stops we wanted to make. Walking the freedom trail was an experience we wanted to allow our children to have in order to understand the importance of our country's independence.
On our trip around the East Coast, historical sites have been a focus. We hope to complete a better understanding of history by reading the stories of history then visiting the original sites. Plimoth Plantation was our next stop.
As soon as we talked about going on a trip and the trip would be east from Chicago, Fallingwater was going to be our first stop. The Frank Lloyd Wright house, the most famous house ever built, redefined what a residential home could be. I had high exceptions and it exceeded every one of them. The true mark of something great, it is better in person.
