Even though I work from home I still get that giddy feeling when it's Friday! I rarely sleep in. I'm one of those annoying people who wakes up raring to go. It's fine when you are traveling because there is so much to see and do but I think, when we are home, my husband sometimes wants to throw me off the balcony. 😂 Until summer actually shows up I'm traveling around Europe in my head! .

Finally got into Slovenia last night after being stuck in Austria for a few days waiting for a parcel. Had a wonderful Warmshowers host though.
Had the most brutal climb out of Austria, just grinding my way up some ridiculously high gradient and got some weird looks from the drivers, I don't think they've ever seen a sheik before.
Then just an incredible introduction to Slovenia and the Julian Alps.
Cold night in this little viewing platform overlooking the mountains and the clearest pond. It's going to be another beautiful day and I'm Packed away and ready for Vršič pass.

Refreshments Required...We hope you all managed to get a ride in the sun 😎

FROM THE ROAD: A VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAR

Driving along Route 81 through Virginia, one of the prettiest stretches of highway in America.
Springsteen’s on the radio singing about Youngstown, Ohio. “These mills built the tanks and bombs that won the country’s wars
We sent our sons to Korea and Vietnam
Now we’re wondering what they’re dying for....
Now sir you tell me the world has changed
Once I made you rich enough
Rich enough to forget my name”

America surely has changed and not for the better
We are traveling across America in search of something. What is we do not know but I’m writing it all down and other times pictures are worth
a thousand words.

FROM THE ROAD: HARRISONBURG, VA

We strolled around this lovely, vibrant college town last night, home to James Madison University and Eastern Mennonite University. There is a sizable Mennonite population here in the Shenandoah Valley.

Harrisonburg is s bastion of diversity. 1,900 refugees have settled here since 2002. 19% of the population is Hispanic and the city’s public school students speak a total of 55 languages in addition to English.
AND it was here that the Multi-lingual Welcome Your Neighbor signs originated.
So we’re really digging this town.

FROM THE ROAD: MOON OVER MOTEL SIX

The woman working the desk at the Motel 6 appeared to be older than me. She was friendly and helpful. When I asked about Harrisonburg ‘s historic district she said, “It’s just a lot of old buildings.” “Are there restaurants?” “Oh there are restaurants!” She gave me a book of coupons and directions on how to get there. Then asked, “Are you a senior? You can get another discount on the room.” “I have triple A.” “We don’t take Triple A.” “How old do you have to be to be a senior?” “60” “Oh, I’ guess I’m a senior.” She gave me the discount and the key to my room. I realized she was probably the same age as me and the younger woman who is still alive and well and perceives herself as a Jack Kerouac road warrior might also be able to get the blue hair special at dinner.

Happy memories of Berlin! The weather is finally supposed to take a turn for the better where I actually am (I'll be happy when I don't wake up to negative temperatures every morning) and I've met someone who is struggling with small town living as much as I am so things are looking up! 😀 @beautybyluchessa @kasiasonia this one is for you. Miss you guys!
I've moved around quite a bit so I know first hand what it's like to arrive in a new city and not know anyone and worse yet that feeling of being completely lost. Your other half goes to work and you are stuck making a life and trying to figure things out on your own. I've always been that person who stepped up to even just say hi and lets go for a coffee, let me show you around. In Warsaw I did my best to help people with their relocation. When not a single person did that for me when my husband came to work here it was a huge shock. As a result, I've been unhappy, resentful and hating every moment of living here. My message to everyone is if there's someone new at your job or even a class you take, smile and strike up a conversation because you really might be making someone's day. .

FROM THE ROAD: HARRISONBURG, VA

Made our way from Vermont to Virginia to have a Gansett in this James Madison college bar. This girl who grew up on the Narragansett Bay and her hubby are by far the oldest people in this bar.

We’d just taken a chai break, everyone was checking their phones and grabbing something to eat whilst this kid from across the road kept staring at us from behind the fence, so I walked upto him & he greeted me with the cutest smile!
I took a few pictures of him and then bought him a pack of chips and he ran across the field to his house and that’s the happiest I’ve seen a kid!
There was so much simplicity in that conversation sitting on the ground with that shy face, I remember each and every word of it and the that running back has to be mentioned again! So cute!

SUSQUEHANNA COUNTY, PA

We’ve passed through Binghamton, famous for its SUNY NCAA hockey team that often makes the Frozen Four. After crossing the headwaters of the Susquehanna River and just over the border in Pennsylvania, we stopped for gas and lunch at a Tim Horton’s that was attached to a convenience store.
For those of you wondering about the Leatherstocking region of NY its name comes from a James Fenimore Cooper novel The Leatherstocking Tales, a story about a character named Natty Bumppoo. I have never read the book.
The Mohawk Indians, whose land this was before the white man arrived, wore stockings made of leather to protect their calves from brambles and thorns.
The region is known for its farms, fresh produce, festivals, small towns, and lakes and rivers.

At Tim Hortons a group of elderly people were laughing and speaking loudly in Chinese. An old man was buying Monopoly tickets at a vending machine. At the Shaw’s supermarket in Wilmington, VT I am always asked if I’m playing Monopoly and I say no then offer my ticket to the person behind me in line.
A tattooed young man flirts with the two heavyset girls behind the counter.
Across the street a tobacco shop named Smokin’ Joes is next door to Tobacco Junction.
We are back on the road at 2:30. It has stopped spitting snow and the sun is peaking through the clouds.

I don't know why but today I've been thinking a lot about Paris. I feel such a strong connection with that city. On this particular trip we visited the building where my parents lived and saw the Ecole des Beaux Arts where my mom studied painting. The city is also why my name is Caroline and not some other version of the name.

Mochileando entre #BuenosAires y #Santiago.
.
La música fue la que me llevó fuera de #Lima en mis primeros viajes con mis patas, apenas salidos del colegio, no sólo en búsqueda de experiencia y conocimiento, sino que guitarra en mano, a enfrentarnos a nuevos públicos en nuevas tierras.
Y esa sensación es tan reconfortante como angustiante; salir a un escenario donde sabes que no tienes al frente a un público que ya comulga con lo que haces, es ganarse a punta de esfuerzo en escena un poquito del reconocimiento nuevo.
.
La música nos lleva a nuevos destinos, pero también en nuestra larga data de personajes con "doble vida", ya sea como universitarios-músicos o ahora como empresarios-músicos, nos limita el tiempo a libre disposición que a veces nos gustaría tener para fugar de la ciudad en un viaje largo sin compromisos en escena.
.
Y es que los viajes de gira son fugaces y llenos de compromisos grupales y promocionales. Y a veces puedes visitar una ciudad muchas veces sin poder salir de los típicos lugares por los que ya has pasado antes.
Pero la música y los viajes, y viajar tocando, siempre serán buenas combinaciones, o sea que vivir el "life on the road" no es del todo malo. Ojalá y vengan más y más nuevos destinos!
.
Por ahora se vislumbra una gira al sur por Arequipa, Tacna y Puno, así que nos vemos en la ruta! 🤘🏿⚡️🚀
.
Dónde nos viste fuera de Lima?

Have you ever found yourself listening to a friend’s tale of adventure and thought, “I could never do that”? I have. I used to do this all the time. Fly around the world by myself? I don’t think so. Take a hot air balloon ride? No way. Go on a helicopter that drops 50 feet at a time above the ocean for fun? You’ve got to be kidding me. Yet I realized the only person telling me I couldn’t do these things was myself. I could, and did, do them all. And now I’m better for it. ⭐️⭐️ What’s a travel risk you took that you thought you couldn’t do, then were glad you did?
