Two of my children and five of my grandchildren live on the east coast of the United States.

Every couple of years I undertake the long-haul, 15 hour flight across the Pacific, to visit them.  During my visit each of these beloved little ones has a birthday, and it is their birthday parties at which I need to be present.

Besides spending time with the family, I also take a little time to do some roadtripping, and get to see some of the North American continent.

This blog is where I will be keeping a trip  journal.  So come along for the ride.
