Delphine and I are restaurateurs and own a couple of small steakhouses in East Sussex. Rather than work ourselves into old age and leaving it too late, we've decided to get out there and do some travelling while our backs and knees can still support us. Delphine is 44 and I am 52 but still devilishly hansome.
We bought an old Class A RV in the UK several years back and, despite it being a lemon, we both fell in love with it. It was our first one and we were a bit naive.
The love has been strained as we aren't enthusiastic about things falling apart around our ears so we decided to fly to the states and back in May we picked up a very nice used Fleetwood Discovery pusher from General RV in Florida.
We had a lovely month exploring the Everglades, the beaches and examining your civilisation through our European eyes and we are now heading back with our youngest daughter Hattie (22) and her boyfriend Tommy who we picked up in Ireland many years back (and haven't managed to shake off yet) for a bit more travelling. We plan to do a little lolling around the beaches and revisiting the Kennedy Space Centre (to show them where you guys filmed the moon landings) before making our way slowly up to New York to try your pizzas and hot-dogs.
We loved our trip but, as we don't have a tow vehicle, find that staying on campsites isn't ideal for getting to know somewhere. On this trip we shall have bycicles and intend to try boondocking near towns or beaches.
Hastings, East Sussex. A small fishing town on the south coast.
