About We That Travel

Indulging in our memories of journeys far & wide. One caveat: photographic memories and tales to tell are a must. With the song from the Dixie Chicks playing in the background, hit the road! "Hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling Lived like a gypsy Six strong hands on the steering wheel I've been a long time gone now Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down But I've always found my way somehow By taking the long way Taking the long way around"
