I tend to analyse my choices to the Nth degree! Ofttimes I wonder about my future taking a 32 year old motor home on a trip that I hope will encompass thousands of miles. I think about where I am going and what I will find once I get there. I also wonder about how in the H*** I made the decision that this would be a good thing for me.
A big influence on my choice has been a young Filipino woman whom I have never met. She posts only a few times each year but her story seems to answer most of my questions. Her name is Weng and her blog site is Mailorderbride . I am only going to provide the slightest glimpse of her site here as I cannot think of one blogger that I follow who cannot benefit in some way by reading all of her posts word-for-word, for tortured English word.
A brief summary: A Filipino woman finds herself in an untenable situation financially in her country; decides to travel to the USA and marry a man she had never met; has a family with him and begins a lifetime journey. They have a residence in Oregon but traveled to Mexico (in somewhat less that first class mode) and wound up living at least half of the year on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific.
While I have no specific itinerary, I know that one of my stops in Mexico will be to meet this extraordinary family!
