“Travel is never a matter of money but of courage” – Paulo Coelho

We love to travel.  Over our 35 years of marriage our methods of travel vary whether it’s a coastal road trip from Miami to Brooklyn and back,  a motorcycle trip from Seattle to Northern California, cruising the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, flying to our destinations within the US or internationally.

When we began to consider what we wanted our retirement to look like, travel was an important consideration.  Would we want to stay in Seattle and continue to take a few yearly trips?  Should we move to the east coast?  Move south to a dryer and warmer climate?  Should we move to St Thomas?  To Europe?

After following the blog of a Washington State family that traveled the US for a year in an airstream we thought traveling in your home was an interesting path to consider.  After a year or more looking at different types of RV’s of every size and floor plan we decided smaller was better and we wanted something unique that fit our way of looking at life.  Our 1975 GMC Motorhome Eleganza II is the vessel we chose for our journey.

It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone, to leave your neighborhood, to be a traveler, to not follow the crowd but to create your own path.  It also takes courage to purchase a 40 plus year old motorhome and adapt it to fit your needs! All journeys require taking that first step.
