We are travelers and travel bloggers. Here at this blog, we'll tell you about places we've been that we think will be of interest to other travelers. Whether on the road in our RV, taking a non-RV vacation or simply investigating our local surroundings, we are constantly discovering new places and things to do, and we love sharing those discoveries with you.

Happy Trails!

Leaping into a New Adventure

I have always been a homebody. As a kid, I'd get homesick just sleeping over at a friend's house - couldn't wait to get back home. I was lucky - for me, home was a safe place, where I was loved and protected. I've spent most of my life trying to create a lovely home in which to live as an adult.

So to be doing what we are doing now - uprooting and making our "home" an adventure of travel in an RV - is a huge step for me. Never before in my life would I have been ready for this, but now, it feels just fine. I'm pretty surprised by it, actually. For a while, this comfy RV and a lot of beautiful places will be "home." Home will travel with me. And I guess that is the goal really, isn't it? To be at home with yourself, so you can be at home anywhere. I think that's why I can do this now, because I feel more at home with myself than I ever have. And too, connections like blogging and Facebook make it so much easier to feel connected. Family and friends are "home" too - and I will actually get to see much more of them on this adventure than I have for many years.

Tuesday, we start heading back to what has been home to us for the past five years - Santa Fe, New Mexico. It will take us until Saturday or Sunday to get there. We should get as far as Indianapolis tomorrow.

Monday, we went to Shipshewana, Indiana while they did some last minute stuff on the RV. Shipshewana is a delightful Amish town. Here are a few pictures from our day:

This rocker also swivels! Beautiful Amish construction.

The amazing lemon merangue pie at the Blue Gate Restaurant

A few minutes later ...

My personal slice of the lemon meranque. Sorry to say I could not eat the whole thing!

Getting goodies for the guys at the Nexus plant (they built our RV)

I know - it seems like it was all about the food, and it kinda was!!
