As I read this wonderful article from the Washington Post, I couldn't help to think about Europe. Of course it is how much Germans and Dutch seem to travel these days, via RV for a vacation that is. And that is exactly how the German Ambassador used his summer holidays to explore the US and "rough" it.
As issues about how cramped the campgrounds might be, Wolfgang assures Jutta things won't be as cramped as Europe. Reminders of Lake Starnberg in Bavaria and Lago di Como in Italy are in their heads as they trek throughout the Eastern US. Of course when it is all finished, the best thing to come back to is your own bed. Sure enough, there apparently are reminders of Europe when you RV across the states after all.
