Family of 3 traveling the US for a year

Active Guest

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

I'm traveling around USA for 1 year in an RV with my wife and 8 year old son.
We like to meet cool people and share stories about traveling and different cultures.
We've lived in South Korea for 10 years, where I taught at a university.
We have traveled extensively throughout Asia and Europe.
My wife is from Bulgaria and loves to cook and can teach you how to make delicious traditional Bulgarian and Korean meals.

Along with working as a university teacher, I've also worked as a personal trainer and stock analyst. So I can help you in these areas if you'd like. Our son speaks Korean and Bulgarian.

We're pretty laid back and value meeting new people and making new memories rather than acquiring material things.

You can view some photos of my family here to get to know us:

Very nice and helpful family

Boondocker Welcome families are outstanding guests and this family was no exception. Thanks to a snow storm we got to have them here for an extra day. Father and son shoveled the snow from our deck and driveway. Mom gave us some homemade South Korean soup which was delicious!
We got to swap travel and life memories over coffee and tea while their son played with my great-granddaughter.
I wish them the very best in their future travels and adventures.

Almost never knew they where here.

Between our schedules I never was able to meet them. Wife talked with husband and young boy when they brought a thank you gift. We appreciated the gift. Quiet and didn't leave a trace they have been here. Welcome back anytime.

Memorable family

We enjoyed having this interesting family as guests. Great conversations with the three, especially the youngest. Any host should be privileged to have them visit.

Three polyglots

Fun interesting trio. Gayya and 8 year old Jonus speak English, Korean and Bulgarian. Grant speaks English some Korean and maybe more though I didn't ask.

Jonus is a precocious home schooled boy and his friend Ben and his father also visited them here. They all three are World travelers and interested in just everything possible.

One evening they treated me to some homemade Wedding Soup I presume it to be a Bulgarian dish but didn't think to ask until just now. It had some very tasty balls that looked to be a combination of rice, veggies and meat.

They are welcome to come again anytime, even if I'm out of the country and they can't get a hold of me when they may need to park here for a few days sometime.
