Florida has these amazing pockets of forests, called hammocks. They're densely packed with hardwood trees and ferns. Here are a few photos that I took in the Oak Hammock Trail on Merritt Island, which is near Cape Canaveral. There was a boardwalk built over the swampy parts, so we were able to get a good look at trees growing up out of the water. We saw plenty of zebra longwing butterflies, which is Florida's state butterfly. I'm looking forward to walking around more hammocks as we travel through Florida.
Hello and welcome to my first blog post! I'll be sharing our journey across the US in a Grand Design Momentum RV Travel Trailer, which I share with my fiancé James and our 20 year old kitty named Miss Puff Puff.
We just started our travel journey back in late September, but we bought our RV trailer back in March, right when states starting shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our trailer sat in storage until early fall when it was somewhat safe to travel (at least by car) again. We picked up a heavy duty truck in Texas and then picked up our trailer in North Carolina.
It took a few months to get the trailer set up to our liking - we had to move our desks, art supplies, kitchen utensils, and other possessions all the way from California to the East Coast. Now, we're just starting to enjoy life in a home that is completely mobile.
I'll be sharing more about our journey, as we not only travel through the US but also work on creating art, think deep thoughts under the stars, and work on rediscovering ourselves. Honestly, the work of rediscovering ourselves was the main purpose of going on this long journey across the states. Travel has always been one of my deepest loves, because I have the heart of an explorer, the need to discover and understand other points of view, other ways to live. And even more important to me is the idea of how to travel mindfully, with the idea of how travel can make me a better person and a better citizen of the community I'll eventually live in. Welcome to our journey!
Hello! My name is Kat (she, her, hers), and I'm here to tell you about my travels in a Grand Design Momentum 5th Wheel Travel Trailer with my better half, James and my kitty, Miss Puff Puff.
