We (fieny and thijs) are a Dutch couple who travel the USA after working (she as an RN, he as a carpenter) our entire lives. Fieny is a US citizen with two married sons and a grandson in Los Angeles, Thijs is in the US on a green card, with a married son in the Netherlands and a granddaughter on the way.
We like to hike, bike, watch soccer and sightsee the country. Fieny volunteered at the WorldCup Soccer in 2004, Thijs was part of a team in the Netherlands until he married and moved to the US.
We have seen 43 States already. Our trip has had many intervals to travel to Europe and Los Angeles for family affairs. We started in 2012 and think to be going at it for another 2 years before settling in Nevada (probably).
She likes to write a journal about life on the road, always with a fun twist. We plan to sort thru the zillion photographs after we are done travelling, as we cannot find enough time to do it while travelling.
Fieny has worked as a CCRN,RN in ICUs/CCUs in various medical centers in the L.A. area. She did travel assignments and still receives requests to come back to work. Thijs is a skilled craftsman, with many of his "jobs" still visible in Holland and in Los Angeles. People used to wait for him (up to 2 years) rather than have someone else do the job they had in mind. Since retirement he has made efforts to learn english and is great in solving problems in and around the RV. We prepare our meals at home as it tastes better than in restaurants. Asian food is preferred, but we would not pass up a good burger.
have been at Sturgis for 8 days. This was our 1 and only time to boondock. We did have fun. But, we always have fun, no matter where we are.
Amsterdam and Los Angeles, but we cannot afford to live there anymore, so we will move to Pahrump, Nevada.
Our home is a 2003 HR Ambassador 38ft long with 3 slideouts and we tow a 2013 Ford Edge after Fieny managed to murder the 2001 Ford Ranger we started out with. We also own 2 bicycles that we seldom use. (No time) Our home has an "office" and an improved floorplan, built by Thijs.
