What Pete and I have found out, when we do come home, it makes you appreciate the things we take for granted. One SA trip in 85, to Peru for 3 weeks, when we arrived in the US, 1 st comment Pete made was, we complain about our road system, but wow, what a pleasure to drive here.
I have lost count on how many countries we have visited, but every time we come home, we are thankful we live here. And yes, we sometimes get homesick! We miss our kids and grands!
As for countries, Peru has so much, we spent 3 weeks not near enough time. Masupichu was a delight.
Spain, 3 weeks there as well, rent a car, drive the country. We try to see as much as possible of the country we are
in and mix with the locals.
This past year, we spent 8 months traveling the Eastern Caribbean. We are headed back in Nov, and will spend another 7 months or so, traveling back North. The boat is great, gives you your bed, shower, travel between islands and you cook in the boat. So is relatively less money.
I would like to travel to China someday in the future, we will see, for now enjoy and let us know about China.
